Woman goes viral after playing matchmaker on plane

"We couldn't have picked a better romantic duo, they were both athletic and cute, and they struck up a conversation immediately", said Rosie Blair, the Twitter user whose feed had everyone following along - in real time - as she live-tweeted. However, two lucky strangers seem to have done both at the same time. She said she heard the man and woman say "they're both personal trainers", and later added that the man used to play professional soccer.

Rosey Blair, a 29-year-old comedian from Dallas, asked a woman to switch seats with her on a flight from NY and joked that the woman's new seat partner could be "the love of her life".

Blair didn't think much of her seat switch at first, but joked with her boyfriend that maybe the woman would meet the "love of her life".

Blair said she even bought Wi-Fi in order to keep people informed of the blossoming romance. The images were originally posted to her Instagram story.

Things really started to heat up when the woman came back from the bathroom with her hair down, after previously having it in a ponytail, and started asking the man for fitness tips. Being the health buffs they were, the pair chose to share a cheese protein board and were soon after sharing family photos.

Chris Brown arrested for felony assault in Florida
Singer Chris Brown played a concert outside West Palm Beach Thursday night - and was then booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. Police took Brown, 29, into custody after a show at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Fla ., reports said.

As the pair got more serious, so did Rosey.

"What if the love of her life pops in or something like that?"

And the theory that social media makes your relationships official was only perpetuated when the couple walked off together at the airport.

When the plane landed, the two went to baggage claim together, with Rosey snapping a picture of them looking very cosy.

"They're gonna fall in love, and get married, and have babies!"
