Are you ready for a wholesome love story? I know I am!

So here’s the story: two best friends in San Jose, California, named Catherine and Allison had single parents so they decided it would be a good idea to “Parent Trap” them, or set them up on a date.

The two friends didn’t know how it would work out, but their parents ended up having a great connection.

Here’s a short version of Allison telling the story on TikTok.

Allison went into more depth about the love connection when she talked to Buzzfeed.

She said,

“We’d often discuss our mutual desire to help them each find love. We hadn’t even thought about introducing them.

Her mom had always had bad luck with men, and my dad was so hesitant to even put himself out there. I think they had both been single for 10+ years.”

Allison continued,

“The more we talked about it, the more we realized they had a lot of very random things in common (their mutual obsession with Mamma Mia, their favorite jazz artist Diana Krall, and their deep love and connection to their favorite local restaurant, The Pastaria & Market).”

Look at how cute these two are today!

Allison went on,

“We knew they would be reluctant to go on a blind date, so it took us a while to figure out how to make it happen.

We decided to stage an impromptu run-in at a local park concert to relieve any pressure.

Plans fell through, so we decided to postpone the idea until further notice.”

And last, but certainly not least…

“The day the original plan was supposed to happen (Father’s Day), we ran into them completely coincidentally at a local winery!

We were shook!

We knew it was meant to be somehow.

Catherine’s mom (Terry) agreed to let her give my dad her number, and the rest was history!”

How’s that for fate?!?!

The couple is still together and loving life together.

What a great story! Remember folks, there are a ton of fish in the sea and you’re never too old to find love.
