Sometimes a Gundam is just a Gundam.

Rod, shaft, willy… There are so many nicknames for the male sex organ it seems like almost anything can be a stand-in for a penis.

So you can’t really blame this woman, who goes by Ella on Twitter, for being suspicious when a random guy on Instagram told her he was going to direct message her a picture of his “Gundam.

Luckily, in this case, Gundam actually meant Gundam, which for those who don’t know, is a giant fighting robot. The guy wasn’t a creep so much as a big ol’ adorable nerd who likes building models.

As fate would have it, Ella randomly ran into this very nerd.

And she will eventually, as she predicted, marry him.

There’s nothing Twitter loves more than a good love story, and Ella’s story has already been shared over 23,000 times and liked over 60,000 times. Gundam fans were particularly impressed.

It’s nice to know that being a guy who’s into building model robots doesn’t mean you can’t find a sweet girl, fall in love, and live happily ever after.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt if you look like you could fight a robot barehanded and come out on top.

Still, love is love. Anyone who can find it should cherish it and hold onto it with giant metal fists for as long as they can.
