Man seeks woman with ex’s name so round-the world ticket isn’t a waste

What’s in a name?

Well, that depends. If your name is Elizabeth Gallagher and you hold a Canadian passport, it could be a three-week trip around the world.

Canadian 27-year-old Jordan Axani booked tickets for the Christmas vacation earlier this year for himself and his then-girlfriend.

Then-girlfriend. See the problem?

Axani still plans to make the trip, and he doesn’t want to see the second ticket wasted, according to The Independent.

“In March I booked a fairly wicked trip around the world for this Christmas for my ex and I. While our relationship has come to a close, I am still planning on going on the trip and she is not (naturally),” Axani wrote on Reddit.

“And because I hate the idea of a ticket around the world going to waste, I am looking for a Canadian named Elizabeth Gallagher who could use the ticket.”

Axani claims not to be looking for a new girlfriend or a, ahem, traveling companion with benefits.

“I am not looking for anything in return, I am not looking for companionship, romance, drugs, a trade, or to take selfies with you in front the Christmas Market in Prague,” he wrote. “If you feel compelled to toss me a couple hundred bucks, great. Really the only thing I ask for is that you enjoy this trip and that it bring you happiness.”

At least one Elizabeth Gallagher has shown some interest in accompanying Axani:

“Hi, My name is Liz ( ELizabeth) Gallagher. I’m Canadian … But I’m old enough to be his Mom. If there’s no younger person to step up I’d have to say it would be interesting. My girls ( 25 and 23 ) tell me DO IT MOM! they wish now that they had my name. LOL”Jordan Axani 2

Axani called this response “awesome” and asked Gallagher 2.0 to contact him.

There seems to be no mention made of a Mr. Gallagher in her response, so who knows where this could lead? Surely, May-December romances have started in stranger ways.

None come to mind, but still.
