Single Woman Kisses Strangers In Front Of Iconic Monuments
When you're on holiday, there's often pressure to get the perfect photograph to show off all the amazing places you've visited. We've all seen countless snaps of couples snogging in front of places like the Colosseum and on top of the Empire State Building.
But what if you're single? Well, Kristiana Kuqi, from Kosovo, didn't let it stop her from getting a loved-up pic.
However, rather than taking a boyfriend, she posed for pics with a bunch of random guys and shared her 'romantic' encounters on social media.
The 24-year-old posted a series of photos on Twitter, the first of her in front of the Eiffel Tower, Paris, with the caption: "I hope this guy I met at the Eiffel Tower and asked for a pic of us kissing so I could pretend I had a romantic time in Paris is doing good."
She also posted a couple of other pictures, including one from her trip to Rome, with the caption: "I hope this one from Rome is good too <3."
But it wasn't just holidays, she also posted one of a smooch with a firefighter, which read: "And the fireman who responded to a fire at a wedding I was at in Kentucky. Hope he's good too <3."
Her opportunism is quite something.
And while it might seem a little strange to most - you probably shouldn't proposition strangers - the university graduate who lives in Virginia, the United States, says there's a much deeper reason why she felt compelled to capture the moments.
Speaking to LADbible, Kristiana said: "Well I'm very big on pictures. I lived through a genocide in Kosovo, so I never got to have pictures of myself as a kid and the ones we did have were burned in the war.
"I also always wanted romantic pictures in the places I went to."
She added: "It's kind of a spur of the moment thing, and I make sure it looks like someone safe. I obviously try to find someone that looks like my type and someone my age."
And according to the keen traveller, she has yet to be rejected.
"I've always gotten a yes," she said. "And a very happy yes. No one has [ever said no]."
Kristiana has been doing this for a few years now, and says although some people haven't taken her photos in the spirit they were meant, she's received some nice messages from women who have done it too.
She said: "I started doing this during my study abroad in England in 2016. Though there's been a little negative feedback, everyone is loving it. Women are feeling empowered by it and actually a few women started doing it themselves and sending me pictures."
