Posted by Annie N. in Relationships On 12th December 2021

A 77-year-old and a 22-year-old have finally found love and are convinced they’re soulmates although they have never met in real life. The two want to get married after an 18-month romance.


A 20-year-old Burmese student revealed that she planned to marry 77 year old and had fallen “madly in love with him”.

Jo, 20 and David, 77, have been dating online for the past 18 months and claim that they are in fact soulmates.

David who is a music producer has not yet met Jo in person and lies in Bath. Jo who is from Myanmar has been unable to meet him due to travel restrictions in Myanmar.

The two plan to marry as soon as Jo can get a passport and a visa.

“I am not a conventional guy and I have always followed my heart," said David.

"When there is strong love and affection between two people, why analyse it?”

The two met on OkCupid where Jo was looking for a mentor and for financial help so she could study. David on the other hand was looking for a more flirty relationship.

"I was only looking at profiles of younger ladies in the UK, and on those sites, you’d be lucky to get a reply at my age.

“I have always been young at heart and have always had younger partners. I can’t imagine being with someone in my own age bracket, or even in their 50s."

While Jo’s profile said that she was studying in London, she was actually in Myanmar but wanted to aim for UK men and changed her location to reflect that.

Jo who is training to be a barista said, “If I am being honest I initially went on the dating site to look for someone to help me financially with my studies as I was a broke student and didn’t live with my parents.

"I changed my location from Myanmar to the UK to only attract men who lived there.”

After chatting, she soon found the relationship getting more serious. “I found myself being able to confide in David about everything.”

“We started talking for hours about everything. I found myself falling in love with him because he was so emotionally supportive to me, so kind and affectionate.

"Even his voice was comforting. He also made me laugh with his comedy impressions and I called him all the time, even though the time difference meant being six and a half hours ahead.”

David had been previously married in the 80s and has been single for the past decade. He revealed that he only spoke to two other women before connecting with Jo.

"Jo seemed a lot more special because she was warm and affectionate and somebody I thought I could help as she was a student.

"Although I don’t have the means to help much financially, the thought of being a mentor and emotionally supportive to a younger lady really appealed to me.”

After some initial conversation, he got her to confess she was actually in Myanmar and not in London. Ultimately, their distance didn’t matter because of how strong their bond had become.

“Even though in the first few days our chat had been more sexual, we had gone on to talk every day about our lives, our love for cats, music and arts.

"Jo’s Burmese culture and her Buddhism was very interesting to me so when she told me she was not actually in the UK, it didn’t make a difference to me.”

While the two are not yet officially engaged, David calls Jo his fiancé.

“Being on my own, she does fill a certain void but I am also realistic and realise that Jo sees me as a way of escape from her life Myanmar.”

The two say they know that their relationship will be subject to a lot of judgment.

“Every person who knows about our relationship or is reading this will 100% see this as a sugar daddy situation.

"I initially did go online to find someone like that but there has hardly been any financial element to this relationship, except David sending me little gifts like chocolates or sometimes money to help pay my phone bill as all couples naturally do.

"Talking to him every day, his kindness, love and emotional support is so much more valuable to me.

“David is more than my fiancé; he is my mentor, best friend and family all rolled into one. I can tell him everything.

"Even though our time zone is very different we talk for hours every day. I don’t mind his age. He cares about me and that’s what is important.”

Jo says that her family is religious and strict and will not approve of their union.

David says that his friends are also skeptical.

“They have told me I am probably being taken for a ride but despite people thinking I am a dim geriatric and she is a devious young girl, there is hardly any financial element to our relationship, lavish gifts, sex chat, sexting or explicit video calls.

"Our relationship has gone deeper than that.

“In the past, I have met other younger women in the UK but what makes Jo special is how funny, caring and affectionate she is, how mature beyond her years compared to a lot of girls her age."

David says he understands that a 57 year age gap comes with its problems.

“I love David in such a unique way because he is so much older. If I wanted to have sex with a guy here I could as David is fine with it, but there is no one that gives me the love, the chats, and laughter that David does.

“If David wanted me to be physically intimate with him, then I would be happy to give him that.

"I know David is happy with me seeking other sexual partners for fun but I also love him enough to give him the physical intimacy he wants.”

While the two have no concrete plans, the two hope to join soon so they can marry.

“Either for a visit or maybe even permanently so she can study here.

"As Myanmar was taken over by the military a year ago, the future is uncertain.

"I would want to marry her just because it would give her some security. As for kids, I have never wanted any, but if Jo wants them, who knows?"
