Man flies 650 miles for first date after reading her comment on his viral TikTok

Taylor Bier, 25, thought little of her flirty comment on Matt Bannon’s video – but weeks later he flew 650 miles to visit her for a first date

It didn’t take long for the couple to commit to a very long-distance relationship

Two TikTok users living 650 miles apart have started an unlikely relationship after one message set off a whirlwind romance.

Taylor Bier, 25, swooned when she saw a video of Matt Bannon, 26, swimming on the social media app.

Several users had seen the video and posted admiring comments – including an Olympic athlete.

CT scan technologist Taylor then decided to join in, writing: “Ooo, 25, single, saw there was an Olympic athlete on board – I might not beat that.”

She thought little else of it but Matt replied to the comment and the pair soon began chatting over Facetime and started to discuss meeting.

However, there was a snag: Matt lives in sunny Dallas, Texas, in the southern US – while Taylor is in snowy Omaha, Nebraska, in the far north.

But after just two weeks of chatting, Matt booked flights and flew 650 miles for their first date, with the pair meeting in person for the first time at the airport.

Now they’ve started a relationship and have visited each other every month since.

Taylor said: “Meeting in person was so much better than I could’ve ever expected. It’s super crazy how things work out.”

Event manager and consultant Matt added: “Thank God for TikTok right?”

The TikTok video of Matt and his brother racing against each other in the pool, with each representing blue and pink in a baby gender reveal stunt for their sister’s baby, gained him a following online.

Worried he was a catfish, Taylor asked him to Facetime her and pulled into a supermarket car park for what she thought would be a 10 minute chat.

Taylor recalled: “I sat in the Target parking lot for two hours and didn’t even ever go in.

“He was way more handsome than I ever thought he was going to be.”

Just two weeks later, Matt booked tickets to Nebraska for a month in advance. At the airport, he shouted: “Oh my god, you’re real and not a catfish.”

Taylor added: “He would pinch me and be like, ‘sorry, never thought I would see you.’ It really didn’t feel real.”

The happy couple have seen each other three times since their first meeting in May.

They have already scheduled monthly visits for the remainder of this year in different holiday spots.

Taylor said: “This was indeed a chance encounter, but because of the way things are panning out, I now more than ever, have full faith in the fact that everything does happen for a reason.

“I am so grateful for this darn app and for [Matt’s sister] and her sweet quarantine baby, because without any of that, Matt and I would still not know the other existed.”
