He”s got a high score in the game of love! Moment couple who met in Halo game and courted online for FIVE YEARS see each other for the first time… and now they”re engaged
The emotional moment when a long-distance couple took their relationship up to a new level by finally meeting after five years online communication is finding sentimental fans on the internet.
The short video shows the young man running into the arms of his long-time girlfriend and spinning her around in the airport before they share their first kiss.
The couple met five years ago in a Halo 3 game lobby, became virtual best friends, and began a romantic relationship two years ago, and met for the first time in March.

They long-time couple are now engaged.
In the caption of the YouTube video, the young woman- who only identifies herself by her username of Cadynow- explains that she lives in Texas and her new fianc lives in Tennessee, making their relationship largely dependent on internet services like Skype, MySpace and Facebook.
As she explains it, sparks flew electronically for the couple.
“We built a relationship as best friends for 3 years,” she writes.
“Once we talked “face to face” we hit it off as a couple from then on.”
She noted that they have only met one other time since their formal- and touching- introduction in March, though they apparently have plans to reunite in August.

Touching: The video has become very popular online, warming the hearts of even the most cynical viewers
Their emotional meeting caught the attention of many on the internet and had been viewed over 330,000 times by early Tuesday morning.
It may gain an even larger audience, however, as a producer from the soon-to-be-launched Jeff Probst talk show reached out to the young woman in the comments asking her if the couple wanted to take their love onto national television.

While the couple seems to be mulling over their options, their new engagement must have them busy planning their wedding.
If they chose to go full-circle with their relationship, they would not be the first ones to have a Halo-themed wedding as the Orlando Senitel ran a story about a Florida couple did just that in 2009.
