Jenn Chia was stunned to discover her partner in the picture taken in October 2012, about 11 years before the two married and two years before they first hooked up, reports Jam Press, cited by Yahoo News.

I still shudder when I look at it”Chia, 32, wrote on Instagram in December as the caption to the 2012 photo, which showed her at a cafe inside the theater, holding a drink.

In the background is her husband Jon Liddell, 33, a Malaysian-raised singer-songwriter, who appears to be waiting in line at the box office.

We were in the same place, but we didn't know about each other's existenceChia explained.

She stated that the two officially met in December 2014 and married in August 2023.

We met at the right timeChia wrote in the post, which had attracted 452,000 likes by Sunday.

If it had been before, I don't think the relationship would have lasted.” Chia continued. “I was a narcissistic monster, unconscious and naive“.

She added: “It took me a year of travel and solitude to reflect and realize my own mistakes. That's when we met“.

“Invisible String Theory!”

Chia is a YouTuber who boasts over 90,000 subscribers. Before teaching herself videography, Chia composed music and performed professionally at festivals, weddings and corporate events.

British-born Liddell is known for his YouTube covers and original music, including “Here For You” and “The One I'm Thinking Of”.

Chia's Instagram fans couldn't believe that she had a chance encounter on the border.

Invisible String Theory!exclaimed one follower, referring to the folklore that two soul mates who are destined to meet are connected by an invisible thread.

On TikTok, the term is used to describe people who have met their soulmate long before they know it.

Taylor Swift's 2020 song “Invisible String” is an anthem for this theory.

Isn't it so nice to think that there was an invisible string all along?”another netizen commented on Chia's post, quoting Swift's lyrics.

“Goosebumps!” said another.
