Stories of crossed paths as submitted by users of CrossedPaths

Tia and Kathy both work in fashion
Tia (from Springfield, IL) and Kathy (from Melbourne, FL) both work in the fashion industry. Tia is a catwalk model and Kathy is a hair stylist. They crossed paths numerous times in the world's fashion capitals - NYC, Paris, Milan and Tokyo - but they never really had the time while working to make a connection. That is until they were matched on CrossedPaths. That gave them the opportunity to strike up a friendship and now Tia and Kathy get together whenever they are in the same city - wherever that may be around the world.
Ciara and Gabriella are Erasmus students in London
Ciara (from Dublin) and Gabriella (from Barcelona) are both studying in London under Europe's Erasmus Student Exchange Program. London can be a pretty daunting place for new comers. But using CrossedPaths the girls were able to connect with a bunch of other Erasmus students and soon had a network of friends from all over Europe with whom they could discover the delights of London together.
Mia and Max are both from Germany
Mia (from Berlin) and Max (from Frankfurt) are both German. But they crossed paths on the other side of the globe - in Australia. Both were taking a year off travelling around Australia with their respective partners. They all met while working picking fruit for a couple of weeks in Tasmania and again while taking surfing lessons on the Central Coast of New South Wales. After they returned home, Mia and Max come up as CrossedPaths matches, based on their shared experiences in Australia. They started chatting and now that they are both single, well, let's see where it goes from here...
Phil and Jennifer from Austin Texas
Phil and Jennifer are both from Austin, Texas. They have been friends for just a couple of months. Phil and Jennifer are also neighbours. They have been neighbours for a couple of years. In fact they live on the same floor of their condo on Shoal Creek. But it wasn’t until they were matched by CrossedPaths that they really met. Phil sent Jennifer a ‘like’. And then they got chatting. Now they are the best of friends. And the best of neighbours too.
Maria Boston and Maria Newark
Maria (from Boston) and Maria (from Newark) are actually third or fourth cousins (could be sisters - check out their eyes!). They'd never met until CrossedPaths matched them based on photos they had both taken while visiting the ancestral village near Naples in the "old country" (Italy). Turns out that their common great great grandfather had migrated to America via Ellis Island in the 1890s. Maria and Maria are talking about organising as huge family get together in August this year.
Jason and Yuki
Jason (from Sydney, Australia) and Yuki (from Osaka, Japan) went to the Stanford Graduate School of Business at the same time. They kind of knew of each other - admiring from a distance - but they never actually met, even though it turns out that they were both members of a couple of the same clubs. It wasn't until both had graduated and returned to their respective home countries that CrossedPaths offered them a second chance. They were matched, they sent each other likes and then soon started chatting. Last summer Jason traveled to Japan and he and Yuki walked the Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Trail together. Yuki plans to visit Jason in Sydney very soon. Stay tuned...
Jonathan and Stuart
Jonathan (from London) and Stuart (also from London) crossed paths at an MG owners car rally in Oxfordshire last August. Stuart's car (a 1955 MG Magnette) broke down and Jonathan towed him home. They were reconnected using CrossedPaths and recently relived all the drama of rescue over a beer in London.
