When Elle received a message on social media from a stranger offering to send her a picture of his "Gundam", she may not have known what she was going to see. Report the post? Block the sender? No, she decided to take a chance, see his Gundam, and meet the man in question. That first meeting took place in April and shortly afterwards Elle tweeted: "Today I met the Gundam guy in person by chance and I don't know, I might marry him. The couple's mutual love of Gundam - several Japanese TV series about robots, plus the model kits and merchandise - was the start of their love story.
The "Gundam man" was John Grasso, and after months of direct messaging and texting, the pair finally met. He genuinely wanted to connect on levels so real, deep, and human. Elle adds: "When we met, I knew instantly my search for a partner in life was over. Although the wedding did not have a Gundam theme, the couple are planning a ceremony and reception next year for friends and family where Elle's hope is to have Gundam elements "sprinkled" throughout. And the honeymoon? If money allows, says Elle, "it would be our dream come true to go to Japan," of course. The couple are not the only ones to have met through an appreciation of Gundam.
