Instalove: Here’s the couple that fell in love on Instagram
It’s almost Valentine’s Day and love is in the air, folks, it’s everywhere.
One happy couple opened up to Mashable on how they found love on Instagram.
Mashable introduced the world to Santiago Perez Grovas and Taylor Dee, both of which are Instagram sensations with more than 70,000 and 18,000 followers respectively.
Grovas owns his own architecture firm in Mexico City, and Dee is a waitress in Colorado. With so many followers, both Grovas, 26, and Dee, 22, frequently had photos featured on the ‘most popular’ page of Instagram. That’s how Dee found Grovas. Mashable calls them the “Jay-Z and Beyonce of the social photo-sharing site.”
The funny thing is, though, when Dee first saw Grovas’ photos, she thought he was a girl. Many of his photos features other females, so she assumed the user was a girl.
“Wow, this girl’s amazing! I love her pictures,” Dee told Mashable. “And then he posted a picture of himself and I realized he was a guy.”
The two finally met in person after Dee won a photo competition Grovas posted on Instagram. Many instant messages and FaceTime sessions later, Grovas visited Dee in Denver.
They spent a week together, but then reality kicked in and Grovas flew back to Mexico.
The couple told Mashable they have been dating for about eight months now and Dee plans to take flight attendant lessons so they can save money on airfare.
