How the internet helped two friends to confess their love for each other
Falling in love can be scary, but having a little reassurance that your crush feels the same is the biggest relief.
That’s exactly what happened for one couple-to-be on Sunday. Twitter user @KINGsham shared a heartwarming screenshot of two texts she’d received around the same time. The messages came from her friends Ari and Jay, and it turned out they were both confessing their love for one another. What are the odds?
After their supportive friend, posted about the happy coincidence, the reaction has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic. People just love love.
That’s when Sham figured it was time to tell them. “They actually don’t use Twitter but once the tweet got a lot of attention, I kinda rushed them into telling each other. Then I sent them the screenshot,” she told Mashable. “They freaked out…because they were together when I sent them the screenshot. But they were really happy.”
Ari and Jay seemed to also enjoy the positive attention from internet strangers, as their cupid explained in this followup tweet:
i just told jay and ari they got 70k likes and they said y’all are invited to the wedding
