Craziest OkCupid date ever: Woman goes on adventure a month after meeting man online
After meeting online, they didn't meet for coffee or a stroll in the park.
Instead, Clara Bensen and fellow OkCupid member Jeff Wilson decided to set off on a trip together.
Totally crazy right? We know. It was all worth it though because the couple are still very much in love AND they're about to have a movie made about them.
It all started a year ago when the two found each other on dating site OKCupid.
After chatting with each other for a month and the half, before Bensen and Wilson set off on a three-week adventure, travelling to eight countries together without changing their clothes.
But that's not all that's crazy about their love story.
"Jeff and I traveled to eight countries in 21 days without changing clothes. It sure beat meeting for coffee," she wrote in her travel memoirs.
Explaining her big leap of faith (which most women would be far too afraid to do in case the guy turned out to be some psychopath), Bensen offered a Mark Twain quote.
She said: "Exactly one month and two weeks after meeting online, Jeff and I nervously booked two luggage-free flights to Istanbul.
"This was either the best idea ever or the beginning of a brutal, three-week long demise. As Mark Twain so aptly put it, 'There ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them'."
