There is someone out there for everyone!
A Brazilian man who’s 7 feet 8 inches fell in love with a woman who is 3 feet shorter than him.
Joelison Fernandes de Silva, 28, developed his disease gigantism as a child. After being bullied for his gigantism, he dropped out of school as a kid and was home bound due to it all.
After numerous surgeries, his condition improved when they removed benign tumors on his pituitary gland.
With all that, Silva found someone he’s falling in love with, a 5 foot Evem Medeiros.
“The first time I saw her it was love at first sight. I was charmed by her. I wanted to be with her all the time. It didn’t matter about her size,” he said.

“Some people like to talk about my shoe size and then image how big my member might be. I think the size of my feet is false advertising. Our love life is normal. We Adapt. Lying down, everyone is my size.”
He ends it with saying this about his wife, “She was basically my first woman. The first woman of my life.”
