Woman Marries Her Twitter Crush In Modern-Day Love Story

This will make your heart melt

Just when you’ve had about all you can handle of Kim, Kanye and Taylor and you’re ready to swear off the internet altogether (yeah, well tonight anyway) comes a story that proves the world wide web is also capable of being pretty awesome.

Victoria and Jonathan O’Brien got together three years ago after Victoria took a shine to the tweets coming from a Waterstones bookshop account and decided to do something about it.

After a dare from a friend, the book-loving Brit sent a tweet, which read: “well I’m in love with whoever is manning the @WStonesOxfordSt account. Be still my actual beating heart.”

However  it took another tweet, and a typo, to finally get Jonathan’s attention.

“It took a couple of months – Jonathan ignored my first tweet but the second had a typo and he picked up on that,” she said.

Fast-forward three years and the newlywed bride tweeted a photo of the happy couple on their big day alongside her first Tweet.

“Dear reader, I married him #noreally #yeahidunnohoweither”” she captioned the photo, a famous quote from Jane Eyre.

Victoria’s latest Tweet has since gone viral, with 9,507 retweets and counting. 

If that doesn’t make you believe in love again, well modern-day love that is, we don’t know what will.
