The moment Chloe Smith,23, saw Daniele Marisco,25, in a nightclub at Ibiza two years ago, she can’t get her eyes off him and fell in love at first sight.
But there’s only one problem—they don’t speak the same language. Smith is from Wolverhampton, West Midlands and Marisco is from Naples, Italy. But realizing that love has no language, they put the language barrier behind them and start communicating through Google Translate!
The couple met the first time in a nightclub at Ibiza, Spain.
And Smith found Marisco so attractive—she asked for his number.
“There was something exciting about Daniele. The fact that we couldn’t understand each other wasn’t a problem. We just clicked,” recalled Smith on her first encounter with Marisco.
“I made the first move and asked him for his number because I just found him so attractive. Despite never having a foreign boyfriend before, I knew I liked him and I knew he would learn one day. Sometimes you must do these things for love.”

“We just clicked.”
The couple who’s now inseparable credited Google’s online translator for bringing them together after they fell in love despite not speaking a word of the same language. Now living together in Streatham in South London, the couple improved their language proficiency simply by speaking to each other.
“Some people thought that I was crazy when I went to Barcelona with him after only knowing him for one week but I just knew it would be the best decision I could ever make.”
They took their first holiday together in Barcelona just one week after meeting.
The couple continued to travel around Europe shortly after meeting.
“From there we went to Tenerife and Madrid. Within six months, we had probably been on more city breaks than some couples have in years. He is spontaneous and that’s what I love.”
“I went to live with him and his family in Naples in 2016 and it was a dream come true. It is one of the most authentic and beautiful cities I have visited in Europe. The more time we spent together the less we used the Google translator, and now it is once in a blue moon when Daniele doesn’t know the name of something in English.”
Smith has even spent time living with Marisco’s family in Naples.

Smith is a makeup artist and Marisco is a bartender in an Italian restaurant. When the couple’s friends didn’t believe the relationship would last and thought it was just a ‘holiday fling’, Smith and Marisco currently slowly but surely learning to speak both Italian and English by conversing to ensure their relationship lasts.
Two years on, the couple insisted that they have proved all doubters wrong and now love to communicate in both of their mother tongues. Marisco also shared how he felt about the relationship with Smith.
They proved that they’re more than just a ‘holiday fling’.
Marisco’s first time at the Big Ben!
“Chloe talked and laughed a lot, but I didn’t understand. The only thing I understood was that she was special. We wanted to be together from the moment we met and that is why we worked. She helped me learn English and I have helped her learn how to cook Italian food.”
“We have proved any doubters that we’re meant to be. From the very start, I had a good feeling about Chloe. She is my soulmate.”
Love has no language indeed!
