Imagine talking to someone halfway across the world for six months and then finally booking your plane ticket to meet each other. One man from the U.K. knows exactly what this feels like. Unfortunately for him, though, there wasn’t a fairytale ending to his love story.
A man from Wales has become somewhat of an internet sensation after his long-distance relationship crashed and burned in the most public of ways. It all started at the end of 2017, when Glyn Thomas Bailey boarded a flight to the Dominican Republic.
For six months Bailey had been communicating with a woman living in the Caribbean country. With the help of Google Translate, he had forged a friendship with a mother-of-four named Wilfa Peguero. And before long, they decided to take the relationship to the next level.
