Woman Donates Her Kidney to a Stranger. Now They’re Getting Married.

It’s the perfect pick-up opportunity! I wish that I had thought of this while I was single.

Step 1: Donate a major organ to woman.
Step 2: Ask her on a date.

It’s a foolproof plan!

At least it worked for Ashley McIntyre and Danny Robinson of Louisville, Kentucky. Robinson needed a kidney transplant. McIntyre heard about him on a local radio show and wanted to help, even though he was a complete stranger. She was tested for compatibility and they were a match. On April 17 of last year, doctors transplanted one of her kidneys into him. The surgery was completely successful.

It turned out that McIntyre and Robinson were a match in more ways than one. They grew closer and spent more time together. On Christmas Day of last year, Robinson proposed to McIntyre. The Courier-Journal describes the scene:

"On Christmas Day, we went to my mom's and started opening gifts," he said. "I told her I'd forgotten one and pulled out a small box" with an engagement ring. He got on his knees and asked her to marry him.

She said yes.
