Childhood sweethearts track each other down on Facebook after 15 years apart

Two childhood sweethearts, who were reunited after spending 15 years apart, are now happily married with a son.

Olivia Mai first fell for Tam Mai when they were aged 14 and 16, respectively, during a chemistry club party in 1995.

They were together for three years before Tam moved away to study at The University of Georgia.

The pair both started dating other people but, as time went by, they both continued to think of one another.

When Olivia’s marriage ended in June 2014, she knew she wanted to reach out to Tam.

After contacting him on Facebook, the pair got chatting – just like old times.

Then just three months later, Tam decided to move from Atlanta to California to be with Olivia.

Knowing it was true love, things then moved very quickly for the couple – as they got engaged in April 2015, married in October 2015 and welcomed a son together, Alex, in January 2016.

Olivia, a 40-year-old private tutor, says: ‘We had a wonderful relationship at the time, but it was just the right person at the wrong time.

‘I thought about him a lot but we both had different lives for 10 years. I never thought it would be possible to get back together.

‘But as soon as my marriage ended, I reached out to him, and we chatted for ages about everything.

‘I asked if he wanted to give us another shot and he didn’t even hesitate when he said “yes.”‘

Olivia adds that she never considered it a possibility they might get back together when she messaged Tam on Facebook, after creating a new account.

She said: ‘I thought he wouldn’t want me back.

‘I thought it would be impossible.

‘Tam popped up as a suggestion on my Facebook as we still had lots of mutual friends.

‘He didn’t see my message for a while but as soon as he did, we ended up chatting for five hours.

‘I dreamt about him and the next day I asked if wanted to give us another try, and he said “yes.”

‘He didn’t even hesitate.’

Olivia stresses that the pair have been inseparable ever since.

She adds: ‘It was meant to be. We haven’t looked back.’
