In case you’re feeling extra cynical about love this Valentine’s Day, this story is a reminder that you might find your partner when you least expect to.
Pharmacist Nourhan Al-Hashish took to Twitter late last week to announce her engagement to fellow pharmacist Mohammed Riad Mohammed after meeting him on the online multiplayer battle royale game, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).
Al-Hashish’s tweet took the social media platform by storm, amassing plenty of comments that range from the humorous to the self-deprecating.
Speaking to Egyptian media outlets, Mohammed said Al-Hashish joined a match he was participating in with his friends, after which the duo began talking. They reportedly met up at the pharmacy she works at and directly hit it off.
“There’s no problem in meeting someone through social media or a video game. If she seems like a good match, take initiative and make your move,” he told Cairo24.
