Sliding into his DMs might be more fruitful than you think.
On this Valentine’s Day couples are celebrating their relationships by toasting to the social networking platform that started it all: Twitter. With the straightforward hashtag #WeMetOnTwitter, couples are posting appropriately mushy selfies and professionally taken pics chronicling their love stories on the website that started it all.
Some couples have been together for years, and have even gotten married—milestones that show how online dating has truly changed the game.
Other couples are celebrating the lives that have joined them along the way.
And some are completely unembarrassed of how following the cliché of “sliding into their direct messages” has gotten them a partner in life.
Though this couple may have just met last month, it hasn’t stopped them from showing the internet what’s possible when you take a chance.
Some bitter folks, however, are rolling with the punches of being single, joking about the absence of their own Twitter bae.
Let this be a lesson folks—the worst thing that could happen after sliding into someone’s DMs is rejection.
And the best thing? It could be a shot at love, no Cupid’s arrow necessary.
