A 23-year-old woman whose boyfriend is 46 years her senior has claimed it was ‘destiny’ that they met on Tinder.
Business owner, Najee Martin, 23, and real estate owner, Charles Sciberras, 69, who both live in New York, fell in love after swiping right for each other on Tinder last year.
Charles, originally from Valletta, Malta, whisked Najee, originally from Kingston, Jamaica, away to the Hamptons for their first date and they’ve been inseparable ever since.
Despite their families being sceptical about their relationship at first, the New York- based couple insist that it was destiny they found each other.
While they are excited for their future together, Najee insists they will not have children because they are both ‘allergic to being broke’.

The business woman claimed that it was ‘destiny’ that they met on tinder, and says she’s ‘allergic to being broke’
‘Two beautiful souls swiped right; a vibrant Piscean, and a beautiful bold Virgoan. Both originating from diverse nations, our love was destined,’ Najee said.
‘Charles and I connected immediately upon swiping right on Tinder. For our first date Charles took me to the Hamptons for a romantic getaway.
‘Charles’ sense of humour and charm along with my good looks and ambition made the attraction between us even more undeniable.
‘We both come from humble backgrounds; Charles has worked his way up the ladder, and now owns a very successful real estate firm as well has other business ventures.

After connecting on the dating app, Charles then whisked Najee away to the Hamptons for their first date and they’ve been inseparable ever since
‘I work with special needs adolescents, and also own a small e-commerce business Foreign Dolls Global which specialises in fashion beauty and skincare.
‘We both enjoy the finer things life has to offer, as well share an exciting romantic connection. One year and six months later, our love has flourished beautifully, and we are inseparable.
‘We were very attracted to one another from day one and now can’t stay away from each other. Even though there is a forty-six-year age difference, we can’t tell at all.’
The pair say their families were ‘sceptical at first’ but soon released that they were head over heels with each other
While they have discussed the possibility of children in the future and have kept the doors open
Najee says that their matching intellectual personalities boosted their mutual attraction and they have learned to ignore the awkward stares from strangers.
While they have discussed the possibility of children in the future and have kept the doors open, they are currently focussing on their own relationship for now.
‘I would say the fact we clicked intellectually that was a plus. As well my good looks, Charles didn’t have a choice but to make me his girl,’ she said.
Najee says it was her good looks, and the fact the couple ‘clicked intellectually’ that sparked the romance
She says that people ‘know to keep their comments cute and respectful’ due to her ‘look’
‘Our families were sceptical at first, but Charles and I don’t care about the opinions of others. We care about our concerns and thoughts of each other. When we are together it’s honestly like we are the only two people on this earth.
‘We’ve spoken about marriage and children and those things are definitely a possibility. But for now, we want to focus on our love and ever-growing bond between us.
‘As Charles would say ‘we’re allergic to being broke’, the opinions of others don’t affect our relationship whatsoever.
‘People smile, people stare, some look amazed, but to be honest no one has ever approached us. I think it’s this look that I have that they know to keep their comments cute and respectful.’
