People Share How Their Relationships Started Vs. How It’s Going Now, And It’s Not As Wholesome As You’d Think

In romantic comedies, we see the couple meet each other for the first time in a coffee shop before going through a series of funny situations and falling madly in love. It’s all fun and games on the screen, but it doesn’t tend to go down like that in real life.

These people on Twitter shared how their relationships started vs. how things are going now and the results range from happy to hilarious.

Nothing Like A Vacay Hookup, Am I Right?

Hooking up with a hot stranger while on vacation is normally a short-lived fling involving a little too much tequila, but this duo turned it into a lifetime together. Impressive.

It’s crazy how sweet and wholesome everything will be in the honeymoon phase of a relationship and then how bitter and angry things get at the ending. She really said “I hate you with my whole heart.”

Slow And Steady Wins The Race

I love that this man said he was willing to wait and they fell in love, whereas, in my life, I tell a guy that I have feelings for him and he instead asks if my friend is single.

It Went From Part One To Part Two In Less Than An Hour

text exchange #1: guy messages a girl after she clearly gave him a fake name and number and he internet stalked her to find her. Text exchange #2: she's upset that he's asked her for her

This is a PSA to any guy: if a girl clearly has gone out of her way to give you a fake name, she does not want you to stalk her, find out her real name, and then message her rudely.

The Brits Are At It Again

First of all, this is the most British DM interaction that has ever graced my eyes. Second of all, how did they go from asking about track pants to buying a home together?

Shooters Keep Shooting

Is there anything more devastating than, after spending minutes working up the courage to reach out to someone you like, having them read your message and just say nothing in response?

Just Two Kids At The Beginning

This couple started dating when they were just two kids in high school. Years later, in adulthood, things are still going strong between them. I didn’t even think high school sweethearts were still a thing.

It Really Does Happen Like That…

If you were to ask me what the main causes of pregnancy were, I’d say the answers are tequila, vodka, wine, and the type of reckless mindset that lets you think the pull-out method works.

It Started With A Water Balloon Toss

The next time one of my friends asks me what is the best place to meet a guy is, I’m going to tell them that they need to find a water balloon toss.

I Lost It At “A Little Interior Design”

I have to say, I love how real this is. I can’t wait to one day have to explain to my future kids that I met their father at a bar where I told him he had a cute butt.

Maybe I Should Give The Zombies In My DMs A Chance

Normally, when a guy cancels on me and then disappears for several months only to reappear in my DMs like it was nothing, I would leave them on read, but maybe I have been going about it all wrong.

Golden Retriever > Boyfriend

My ideal man has a lot of energy, loves going on outdoor adventures, loves to cuddle in bed, has soft, touchable hair, and is incredibly loyal. So yeah, basically a golden retriever.

This Is The First Time A Snapchat Add Went Well

Ladies, before you start thinking that every man who asks to add you on Snapchat might actually end up being the one, I want to remind you that this couple is the exception, not the rule.

She Said, “10:16”

How it started: She DMs: okay so like I got a crush on you. Him: you're lyin chef. Her: why would I pick now of all times to lie. It's 10:16. him: because you play around a lot. Her: bruh, will call you. vs. how it's going: couple picture

This is quite possibly the funniest exchange that I have ever read. He calls her “chef?” When saying she wouldn’t pick this time to lie, she literally gives him a reading of the clock? They’re perfect for each other.

Okay, But Same

While looking through all of these cute (or even not cute) relationship stories, all I can think about is that I haven’t even been close to having a relationship to talk about in years.

He Really Said “Get That Bread”

When people say “get that bread,” they’re normally referring to money, but this guy went in for the literal bread and ended up getting a whole wife in the process. King energy.

She Is An Inspiration

If someone had walked up to young Meghan Markle as she posed in front of Buckingham Palace and told her she would be a future princess, do you think she would have believed them?

This Is The Most Iconic Comparison

It wasn’t until I watched Jersey Shore in my adolescence that I first heard of a toxic relationship—the one between Ronnie and Sammie. The infamy of their relationship and their cultural impact is unparalleled.

I’m Coming Out Of My Cage, And I’ve Been Doing Just Fine

Is there ever a time in life where a “Mr. Brightside” reference will not be hilarious? In my extensive research, the answer is “no.” Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

In Summary, This Is Me

I wonder what my parents thought my life would be like when they found out they were expecting a child. Whatever they thought, I doubt they would have guessed they’d create a depressed idiot with two brain cells and an obsession with astrology.
