My meet cute went viral — here’s what happened next
That evening, the 33-year-old went to bed with 80 followers on the social media platform – when she woke up, the video had been viewed 700,000 times.
The 10-second clip Ainee posted shows her dancing like nobody’s watching at a bar in Mykonos, when suddenly she bumps into a tall, dark and oh-so-handsome stranger.
Whether you believe in love at first sight or not, the chemistry is undeniable. It’s the sort of meet cute the average single girlie only dreams about: the pair lock eyes, it’s as though no one else is there, and you’re pretty much willing him to get down on one knee, there and then.
And of course, TikTok went wild for it. At the time of writing, it’s been viewed a staggering 17.2 million times.
Ainee told Metro.co.uk about that fateful night: ‘I live in Malaysia, and I’d been visiting friends in London, when we decided to book a last minute holiday to Greece.
‘We’d spent that evening bar hopping and we were heading back to our Airbnb when I heard ABBA’s Gimme Gimme playing in a nearby bar.
‘I ran straight in and just started dancing. I didn’t even realise my friend was filming me.
‘To be honest, when I bumped into the guy, I didn’t really think anything of it.’
It was only when the friends returned to London, that Ainee watched the video back. She says: ‘I remember thinking, “wow, that guy is actually quite good looking, maybe TikTok could find him for me.”
‘I also had no idea that he’d looked back at me after he’d walked away.’
‘But anyway, I posted it with zero expectations, at the most, I thought the few followers I had would just enjoy watching it. Damn, was I wrong about that!’
