When a Texas woman asked a fellow passenger to switch seats so she could sit next to her boyfriend on a flight home to Dallas, she had no idea she’d be setting an epic love story into motion.

The woman, an actress and photographer who on Twitter goes by Rosey Blair, joked as she switched places with the other woman that her new seat mate might be the “love of her life.” But Blair and her boyfriend received quite the in-flight entertainment when the two strangers, sitting in front of them, actually sparked up a romance.

Blair chronicled their interactions on social media, gaining a captive audience along for the ride. The story began with Blair sharing videos and photos from her Instagram of the pair getting to know each other on the plane—and it quickly escalated from there.

The new acquaintances even received the stamp of approval from a baby on board.

Young, fit, white couple? Margot Robbie and Chris Hemsworth for the film adaptation, perhaps?

A cheese plate! Meg Ryan WHO?

Lowkey, was she trying to get with his mom instead?

In an act of true journalism, Blair paid for Wi-Fi to keep her followers updated.

Facts are facts, America. Anyone who’s been on an airplane without air conditioning can agree that this is a love story for the ages.

What’s a Twitter thread without a dying phone battery?


Ouch, a bump in the road. Will he make an exception for her or will he leave her Up in the Air (2009)?

A big step in millennial culture.

Blair and her boyfriend were literally all of us reading that thread.

*Jonathan Van Ness voice* yes, Thor!

Happily ever after? Hopefully, Blair will keep us updated.

As for her in-flight Wi-Fi, that got a happy ending too.
