Coincidence is also a wonderful thing, sometimes it brings two people together only for a few moments but in such a way, which cannot be trusted for all ages. A similar coincidence happened to Andye and Steven, of African descent, who met on a metro train in Paris in such a way that it seemed less likely to be together for the rest of their lives.
However, like normal love stories, their love story also had its ups and downs. Still, both did not leave each other’s side. First engaged and then married. Today both are very happy together and every single day of life is being lived with fun.
How did everything start?
The story started in the year 2016 from a common day in the month of September. On this day, 25-year-old Andye, a US resident, had reached Paris for three days to visit. Actually, Andye had to meet a friend in Paris. To whose house she took the metro train, it was there that she accidentally met her life partner, Steven, whom she neither knew nor did not recognize.
Steven, 26, a resident of the Central African Republic, was working part-time at a school while studying in Paris. When Steven got on the subway, by that time there were many passengers in the train and he was one of those people who were traveling standing there. While Andye was sitting on her seat holding the bag at that time.
When some stations passed, the crowd in the train decreased a bit and on getting the seat, Steven went and sat right in front of Andye. Sitting face to face, both of them kept their eyes on each other. At this time both wanted to talk to each other but could not speak.
As the journey progressed, Andye began to fear that if Steven suddenly got off the train and could not even talk, he would never know Steven’s name. Just then, Steven tried to say something.
Andye, who was sitting with the headphones on, took them off and saw that Steven was asking her to sit on the seat next to him. After this, there was a strange few minutes between the two and finally the conversation started.
Shortly after Andye’s station arrived, Steven dared to ask him if he could get down at the same station with him. Andye immediately accepted this point of Steven. After which both got off the train.
After getting off the train, Andye had to catch another train, waiting for which both sat at the station. When the train came, both of them climbed together and sat together. The two, who met a while back, started talking in such a way, as if they had known each other for years.
When the train reached Andye’s last station, the two got down together and exchanged phone numbers with each other. During this, Steven asked May if he could give her a goodbye hug. Andye immediately agreed to this.
the two hugged and parted
In the evening, Steven messaged Andye and waited for the reply. When the reply came, Steven had a level of happiness he could only feel. After this, the two talked fiercely in the evening and planned when the two would meet before Andye returned to Amsterdam.
On the day Andye was to return, the two held a small meeting. During the meeting, both sat together in a restaurant and while talking a lot, tried to know more and more about each other.
During this, Steven directly said that he is looking for a good person to get into the relationship. After a good meeting, Steven drops Andye to his friend’s house and kisses outside the apartment. The next day Andye returned to Amsterdam. There both used to talk to each other often.
After graduation, the two met again in Paris
After graduating in Amsterdam, Andye briefly went to Paris and met Steven before returning to America. For all the days Andye Paris lived, she and Steven were lost in each other. Meanwhile, one day Steven told Andye that ‘I do not want you to return to the US’, when Andye asked why, Steven expressed his love to her.
When Steven said I love you, Andye said how can you love me, you don’t even know me properly. After a few days of this conversation, Andye returned to her home in the US without any plan in mind.
Andye says about this that we did not make any plans to meet at that time. There was only hope in my mind that at some point in the future, both of us would definitely meet. Steven says about this that during that time both of us had decided that we would stay in touch with each other and keep talking.
About three months later, Andye started working with an international organization in Washington. Andye’s work was such that he had to travel a lot in different countries. There were also many flights that used to go through Paris.
When Andye’s flight halted for 24 hours in Paris in March 2017, he met up with Steven. During this too, both of them had a lot of meetings and spent time together, but no one knew anything about what would happen next.
The two did not talk for months
Months passed after the meeting in Paris. Now both of them did not talk much, but both of them used to think about each other. Meanwhile, Andye plans a trip to Paris to meet his friend. After coming on this trip, Andye and Steven met once again. Once again both of them met, talked a lot and also had fun.
The relationship of both was such that they were just meeting, having fun but were not able to promise. Finally, in a stern tone, Andye told Steven that if you are really serious about this relationship, then talk to my mother and tell that you are serious for me. About a week later, Steven sent a long message to Andye’s mother. This was the one message that took the relationship of both of them forward.
In November 2017, both of them met again in France. During this, Steven strengthened his heart and proposed Andye for marriage. Andye happily accepted Steven’s proposal. Shortly after which both of them got engaged.
After this, both of them started wanting to work together to live together. The search was on and in July 2019, Andye also got a work visa to France.

Andye says about marriage that I got married to a stranger I met on a train in Paris. At the same time, Steven says that what would have happened if she missed the train due to being late that day. It is luck that has united us.
