In this generation of digital love, quick connections, and even quicker break ups, it is not often that we come across relationships that hold real love and last. And when we do, it usually awes and shocks us at the same time because people sticking with each other and putting in efforts has become a novelty.
Twitterati happened to stumble upon one such love story and of course, it went viral! It was refreshing to see something positive going viral after a long time. A thread was started by Adi (the hero of our story!) when he was going on a date with a girl. He followed that first tweet with regular updates about how their story progressed from a nervous first date to a heart-warming engagement! Cute, right? Wait till you see this adorable couple and their journey!
Isn’t it cute when guys act all nervous before a date? It surely turned out to be different though!
I am going on a real real date this weekend. Butterflies also, excited also.

(it's not like I haven't been on a date before guys it's just that, this one feels….. different)

Hiking? YES! Staying in bed instead? SUPER YES!
It rained and we didn't wake up so now we are sending burrito pics of us in bed to each other.
Also, this is the last update for a bit because, I think I want to keep some stuff for just the two of us.
You guys have been super sweet and supportive. I love you all dumdums

Well, why wouldn’t you get them? It’s the sweetest thing ever .
Update: She gave me extra brownie points for telling her this thread exists.
Will collect them on Thursday pic.twitter.com/6OnANJDhYn

Is it just me or does your heart melt too when you get, ‘Text me when you reach’ or ‘Did you eat?’ messages?

In girl terms, this means you’ve crossed a major and one of the most difficult milestones.
Update: it gives me pleasure to announce I have been officially approved by the closest friend of the girl. Now awaiting approval from best friend. pic.twitter.com/012KlJRYD6

How cute is it when you awkwardly come out of the dressing room and they smile at you and it instantly makes you blush?
Update: Random post lunch stroll turned into window shopping and I urged her to try out dresses and when she walked out of the changing room…..
(PS: we bought that dress for our date on Sunday.) pic.twitter.com/h40xumxm67

The first movie date is always very important because you observe a LOT of things even though you think you’re just going to watch a movie.

You know what’s sexy? Not partying or PDA all the time, but putting in efforts even when you’re apart.
Update: In different towns travelling for work at the same time, so the goofing off continues on video calls. pic.twitter.com/H62xJjeUHa

If you can manage not ruining each other’s mood at least once in the entire duration of a holiday, you’re there.
Update: the ultimate test, we are on a 4 day vacay in Goa. pic.twitter.com/P7rCRilEPd

Honestly, even if my partner comes over and we sleep the entire day off –that’s a wholesome date.
Update: We geeks have simple ideas for dates.

It seems so amazing when people say they learnt something new from their partners. It’s like you’re growing together.
She as it is amazing at water painting and I wanted to learn, so we decided to make a date of it. pic.twitter.com/6sSHrwLiak

It’s just weird how a little change in men’s beards makes them look completely different and I totally stand with her!
Update: I am sad to announce that we have taken a break for 4-5 days.
Reason being I shaved my beard a little more (accidentally) than I should have.
We would appreciate your support and in these trying times ahead (till my beard grows back) pic.twitter.com/TkizqIEaU8

I’m not crying, you’re crying!
There is this one moment that happens which you want to pause and live it and just be in it and soak it up. For me it happened today. pic.twitter.com/cGzGPhIybP

Doesn’t this thread make you smile wide? It’s stories like these that give us millennials hope that maybe it’s not only two-timing and cheating out there. Maybe we can still find real connections in our world. And that putting in efforts pays off. BIG TIME!
