The arrival of this refugee changed the life of this couple forever!
Sofia is a refugee who fled the city of Lviv in western Ukraine. The girl then declared that she had “flashed” on Tony as soon as she saw him! And this, despite being in a relationship. In addition, the latter is a security guard, who lives in Bradford, West Yorkshire. He also claims to have fallen in love with the 22-year-old and wants to spend the rest of his life with her.
Admitting the pain this will cause Lorna, Tony said he discovered a connection to Sofia. A link that the security guard deemed never to have known before. Moreover, the father of the family added that they “know that it is good”! Obviously, Lorna, his former companion had taken the news badly. But unfortunately, it seems that she can not do anything about the situation! And this despite the fact that she wanted to save her couple!
A thunderbolt !
The couple had hosted Sofia in the purpose of helping Ukrainians fleeing the Russian invasion. Tony told The Sun he “wanted to do the right thing”. And that she had been the first person to make contact on a Facebook page where he offered to host a refugee. That was the start of the story!
Sofia traveled to Manchester on May 4 after waiting for weeks in Berlin for her UK visa to be approved. On the professional side, the young woman works as an IT manager! The security guard then states that he and Sofia quickly developed a connection. Moreover, the father of the family added that his six and three-year-old daughters also took a liking to her. Which was not the case of the one with whom he has been in a relationship (Lorna) for ten years!
The new couple are living their best life
Tony, who speaks Slovak, was talking with his future lover while she was speaking Ukrainian. Moreover, the two languages being mutually intelligible. However, Lorna meanwhile, had not understood what they were talking about! It would also seem that they all got along very well. But some time later, Lorna started to be jealous and resent Tony! The future of the couple was already in danger!
However, the man didn’t want to try anything to save his relationship with Lorna. Conversely, he met in an off-the-cuff relationship with someone he had just met. Finally, it would seem that love at first sight really exists! As the days pass, Sofia joins Tony at the gym and they chat in his car. While at home, they get closer physically!
