An American woman who fell in love with a British man flew 3,500 miles from New York to Manchester for him to take her to Wetherspoons for their first date. Felicia DiSalvo, 21, met Zak Broadhurst, 22, while playing online chess together and began an online romance. But Felicia decided to take the leap and fly to the UK to meet her dream man.

The young photographer forked out £1,300 on flights to jet 3,500 miles to see Zak in the budget chain pub.

Zak, 22, persuaded her to jump on a plane and said he’d treat her to a meal at the Moon Under the Water in the city centre.

They then fell for each other after dining on fish, chips and curry sauce and drinking jugs of cocktails.

Keen to immerse herself in British culture, Felicia took part in a Wetherspoons online game where you have to count how many chips you get with your meal.

Felicia said: “When you spontaneously meet a British person on the internet and learn all the Spoons lore.

“So you fly all the way to count 22 chips and play chess over curry sauce instead of chess.com.”

But she gushed: “Zak thank you for changing the trajectory of my life decisions this rapidly.”

The American ended up going back to the pub five times because she loved it so much.

The pair enjoyed their time at Wetherspoons so much that they made sure to sit at the same table – number 38 – during each of their dates.

Felicia said she wished there were Wetherspoons pubs in the US, adding: “Spoons is just so enchanting.”

Zak said he knew she’d love the boozer – where he goes for breakfast and on his work breaks.

The pair are planning their next meet-up – in another one of the pubs – in York where Zak is going to study psychology.
