Ebaby! Love Story: Doni and Nelly

People often act like the only way to meet someone online is through a dating site. But in a lot of ways, the Internet is just like real life–if you do the things that interest you, you’re likely to meet people while doing them.

I bring this up not only because Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, but because we just learned that another international couple met on English, baby! and is going to be married. Last year around this time we brought you the story of a Turkish man and Ukranian woman who met while learning English on our site and decided to get married. They welcomed me at their wedding to make a video. I checked in with them on their first anniversary and I’m happy to say things are going quite well.

But now I’d like to introduce you to Doni (real name: Donato), an economics teacher who lives in Switzerland and Nelly (real name: Lamia), a travel agent who lives in Algeria. They first met while practicing their language skills in the English, baby! chat rooms in 2007 and plan to be married this November.

They got together in person for the first time last summer. Nelly tells the story:

We first met in Serbia when I went to spend my holidays on Jun 2008. It was the last three days of my vacation that he came. I was waiting him with my uncle in Belgrade airport. My heart was beating quickly because I was so impatient to see him. When he arrived and I saw him. I was too too happy. We spend an unforgettable three days in Dolovo countryside. There he saw my parents and I introduced him my relatives…we spend all the moments we have together.

Since then, she has visited him in Switzerland and he her in Algeria. They actually hadn’t heard about our Turkrainian couple and didn’t think they’d ever fall in love online. “I have never imagined that something like that can happen via the net,” says Lamia.

Aren’t they so cute? They’re both 26 years old. The above photo was taken in Switzerland. Here’s one from Algeria:

And one from Serbia:
