They first started speaking on MSN messenger 10 years ago, but things did not originally go to plan for Paulo as Katyucia blocked him for being annoying.

But luckily enough for Paulo, Katyucia randomly decided to press the unblock button a year and a half later, allowing him to start again in his pursuit.When she unblocked me, it didn’t take me more than a minute to say hello. We started speaking and she said I was more civilised.

The couple released a statement via Guinness World Records: “We are so happy to be a part of Guinness World Records Day and to have our unique record celebrated. We hope our new record will encourage the world to look past the physical differences in others and understand all people should be treated equally.”
