SKOUT Success: Maria and Joe

“Thank you, Skout, because you’re the one that gave my fiancé, my future husband, and I a way to meet each other.” – Maria

Now THAT’S the kind of thing we love hearing here at Skout.

Joe and Maria

Maria (SkoutID: kerupin) and Joe (SkoutID: joeweng) live in different countries – she’s from the Philippines, and he lives in England – yet they were connected by chance through Shake-to-Chat on Skout.

“After chatting more and more,” Maria told us, “we realized there was a chemistry between us, with us both having very similar personalities.”

A few months of chatting on Skout led Joe to visit Maria in the Philippines – and their relationship flourished. The two continued to chat every day on Skout as well as visit each other and travel to places such as Vietnam and Thailand.

Now Maria is in Joe’s country, and they’re counting the days til their March wedding.

“I hope much more people will find their friends and partner-to-be on Skout!” Maria says.
