When Jasmine Grogan offered some money to a homeless man outside a supermarket a few years ago, little did she know her life would change forever.
The man named Macauley Murchie refused her kind offer. But when she finished shopping, he went over to help her with the heavy bags.
The two hit it off right away and are now happily married with two children Daily Star reports.
Jasmine has shared details of her offbeat love story on TikTok and recently revealed how they met.
“One day I met a homeless man who was shopping for my groceries. Offered him money but he didn’t take it,” she said.
“I went in [and] kept shopping and couldn’t stop thinking about him.
“I went outside and asked if I could help him anyway, he said no. He asked if I wanted help loading my groceries into a taxi, I said yes.
“I asked him if I should bring him something to eat. He was embarrassed but said yes and we went to dinner.
“We talked a lot about his life. I bought him a small phone so we could keep in touch, something was different about him.
“I got him a hotel and went home. We stayed in touch. I couldn’t stop thinking about him.”
The Canadians exchanged texts before going on a date.
Grateful for Jasmine showing such generosity, Macauley wrote: “You made my day thank you for everything you are amazing. Can’t stop thinking about you xx.”
She replied, “You don’t have to thank me, I can’t get you out of my head either.”
Not wanting this to be the only time they met, Jasmine then asked if she could take him to lunch.
After the pair had finished their beef dinner, Jasmine asked if he would like to go over to her house and “sort through” some clothes for him to wear.
“I got him some new clothes and told him he could stay the night, but he ended up staying a lot longer than one night,” she said.
“We fell in love instantly. I knew he was the one for me. He was so nice.”
She added: “We went on several dates, eventually he shaved his beard, got new teeth and got a really good job.
“We’ve never been apart since.”
Thanks to Jasmine’s kindness and Macauley’s willingness to help her with her shopping, the two are still together and “very happy”.
To really complete the modern love story, Macauley proposed to Jasmine — and they even have two kids together.
“We are so glad our paths crossed and believe everything happens for a reason, he has made my life so much better and I couldn’t imagine doing it without him now,” she added.
Since she posted the clips, they’ve racked up over 7 million total views and endless amounts of comments from heartwarming users.
