London: Long-lost brother and sister have been reunited after 15 years because they matched each other on dating app Tinder.
After Erik de Vries and Josephine Egberts' parents split up in 1999, Erik moved to Belgium with their father and Egberts stayed in Holland with their mother and the two sides of the family completely lost touch, the Mirror reported. However, when Erik decided to move back to Holland, he had unintentionally moved to within a few miles radius of his long-lost sister, close enough to bring up her profile on the dating app.
He swiped right, having absolutely no idea that it was his sister, and after getting a notification on his phone, the pair had matched each other, so they started chatting. Erik said that in their next conversation, he started to get some clues and figured she might actually be my sister, which kind of shocked him, so he decided not to contact her for a few days.
He added that the fact that he had a lost sister and she had lost her twin brothers did give her suspicion as well....
