Schuler Benson finds true love on Facebook thanks to buying a 'Second-hand phone'. He took to Imgur to explain his story:

Exactly SIX years ago Schuler switched on a phone he just bought on find it was logged in to a female stranger's Facebook account.

"In 2009 while living in South Arkansas, I used a flip-phone to log into my Facebook account."

"I opened the browser, went to facebook.com, and wasn't even given a chance to enter any login information.

"I was already logged in. I had to make several posts in order to find out I wasn't logged into my own account.

"Turns out, I was in the account of a nice lady named Celeste, who lived in Boulder, Colorado.

"She and I had never met, never lived in the same state, had no mutual friends in real life or online, shared no Facebook interests."

Schuler says that after some "understandable confusion" he was able to log out - but then Celeste sent him a Facebook request.

And then they sort of clicked.

Later Celeste admitted that she intended to DELETE him after a few days.

But Schuler added: "It turns out we had a lot in common.

"Like, a LOT in common. We became close friends online, and finally met in person in June of 2013.

"In the fall of 2013, she relocated from Colorado to live with me in Arkansas."

A year later the couple got engaged and moved to South Carolina where they married on June 21, 2015.
