It was love at first sight for Barros while Hoshino thought he was annoying and had cheap pickup lines.

After speaking regularly online for two months, Paulo travelled more than 186 milies to Katyucia’s home city of Londrina to meet her. He said he was bowled over by Katyucia’s beauty, but she was shy and unimpressed with his dress sense

Barros works as a legal secretary and has a specially-adapted car to enable him to drive.

Despite Katyucia’s concerns about the long distance between them, five days later the pair started dating and after four years they moved in together.

The madly-in-love couple who have been dating for quite some time also say that marriage might be on the cards.

The couple told Barcroft they want to hold the Guinness record for World’s Shortest Couple, currently held by Douglas Maistre Breger da Silva and Claudia Pereira Rocha of Curitaba, Brazil, who are 35 inches and 36 inches respectively.
