The Story of How the World’s Shortest Couple Fell in Love Will Touch Your Heart

Love is something that anyone can experience and indeed everyone should. When it comes to true love, there is no barrier of race, religion, creed or even size. This is the story of two little people who are deeply in love.

His name is Paulo Gabriel de Silva Barros and her name is Katyucia Hoshino. They are 30 and 26 years old, respectively, and live in Brazil.

Paulo measures 34.8 inches while Katyucia is 35.2 inches.

The couple first met on social media in 2006. The two chatted regularly on MSN messenger, which is how they got to know each other.

When Paulo started talking to Katyucia, he knew he had found The One. He immediately fell in love with her. However, much to his dismay, Katyucia blocked him on the messenger service. She thought he was boring and got tired of his “pick-up lines.”

But after blocking him on the messenger service for a whole 18 months, Katyucia finally unblocked him – and the two started to talk again.

Katyucia herself does not know what made her unblock him. She only knows that she did it impulsively – and is glad that she did so.

Once unblocked, Paulo immediately messaged her and the two hit it off. Katyucia realized that Paulo was someone she could really talk to. Two months later, Paulo made the trip to Katyucia’s home in Londrina. He loved the way she looked and he loved her personality even more.
