Modern love has never been so modern. It all began with a snapchat on the University of Wisconsin account by a girl looking for the "guy in the Vikings shirt on the UW snap story." Why? "I'm seriously in love with you." Bold. Straight to the point. Would it work? Would they find each other? Would she get her happy ending??

He responds. She responds. They miss each other. Rallying cries. Heartfelt pleas. It's all so enthralling—and man, the romantic in us really hopes this works out. The cynic? Well, social media doesn't always work with matches, now does it? *Swipes left on Bumble*

I'm pretty much always looking for the perfect GIF for any situation. When I'm not trolling the internet, I can be found dancing like a weirdo or napping like it's my job. Right now, I'm probably eating or drinking something filled with sugar or booze. (Sorry, mom.)
