A chance online encounter playing video war games led to love for a couple who live 4,500 miles away on different continents but within 48 hours of meeting in person they were engaged.
Katt Morris and Prentice Gauthier met online playing the multi-player video war game Overwatch in late December.
To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating.'The person who met him at the door was Angela Wesselman, a middle-aged overweight mother who admitted to creating the profile for Megan - as well as orchestrating an entire network of friends and family members to make Megan seem more authentic.
Angela said she was lonely and enjoyed the personal connection that the scam provided her.
Within two weeks, Prentice confessed his love to Katt.'There was something special. Then, as Katt was coming out from a shower Prentice got down on one knee and proposed to the shocked student with his late mum's diamond ring.
Prentice said 'I know it might seem a bit rushed but it just feels right.'And Katt said that she knew that he was right.
'We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her.Schulman was shocked and humiliated, but he also described feeling sad for Wesselman.He spent several days with her and her family trying to understand what drove her to concoct the elaborate scheme.If any of my friends said they were marrying a guy they'd only spoken to online and just met I'd think they were crazy.But it just feels so right,' Katt, told The Mirror after the engagement.
