Don't you just love a happy ending?

Just when a 53-year-old woman had accepted that she may never find true love again, Cupid fired a hell of an arrow in her direction.

Kasey Bergh from Missouri in the US was six years on from a painful divorce when she accidentally sent a text to a complete stranger.

Her text was supposed to be to a work colleague asking her if she wanted to meet up and kill time during a business trip to Denver.

However fate intervened and the text arrived on 23-year-old Henry Glenderling's mobile phone.

While some people would choose to ignore an errant text Henry was polite enough to reply, explaining that if he wasn't working and was free he would we 'happy to hang.'

Kasey followed up her accidental text with an apology, which lead to the duo chatting and culminated in them meeting up for a date a week later.

They both agreed that their 30-year age gap was not an issue.

Henry told the St. Louis Dispatch newspaper that he was inspired by award wining book ‘The Secret’.

"From the very, very beginning it felt like we were on the same wavelength," he said.

Kasey agreed: "I had totally embraced I was single and that I never needed a guy. Then I met Henry."

This summer, three years after their remarkable meeting the couple married in front of delighted family and friends.
