how we met

The internet might be overflowing with websites and apps dedicated to helping you find love online, but it looks like some of the more traditional forms of social media have also found success when it comes to playing match-maker.

Thousands of couples are celebrating online love stories using the hashtag #WeMetOnTwitter – and one particular tale of two of cities really pulled on our heart strings.

When Lili met Johnny for the first time on Twitter, she lived in Paris and he lived in Belfast, however the pair formed an immediate bond thanks to their shared love for football and Paris Saint Germain.

When Johnny’s favourite footballer Yohan Cabaye left Newcastle, the club Johnny supports, for PSG he began to search for PSG related accounts tweeting in English to be able to follow his favourite player. Parisian Lili is passionate about PSG and after finding her account the two began chatting.

The focus of their conversations soon moved beyond the realms of football teams and player politics and before long, a little romance had started to blossom.

The couple chatted on Twitter for six months before they finally made arrangements to meet in Paris – an experience which Lili admitted was a bit strange for the first 10 minutes because she didn't know if she should hug or kiss him.

After the awkward first meeting was out of the way, the pair embarked on a two-year long-distance relationship, before Lili finally took the plunge and moved to Belfast in January 2016.

They have no exact plans for the future but do want to start a family. “We’ll just take things as they come but we’re in it for the long haul,” they said.

Now, if that doesn't warm the cockles of your cynical little hearts, we don't know what will.


On the back of accidentally exposing his newborn’s gender to the world, Ryan Reynolds has revealed the moment he knew Blake Lively was the one.

Speaking to GQ magazine, the Deadpool star suggested his relationship with the Gossip Girl actress reached new heights following their first shared sexual experience.

When asked to pinpoint the moment he “knew it was going to happen” with Blake, the 40-year-old Canadian quipped: “Probably after the sex.”

Following his joke, the father of two recounted the real moment he fell for his second wife and, in true Ryan Reynolds style, the story has placed him and Blake right at the pinnacle of the #CoupleGoals ladder.

“We were hanging out at this little restaurant in Tribeca that's open really late, and this song came on and I was just like, ‘Want to dance?’” he recalled.

“No one was in there, so it was just totally empty.  And it was just one of those moments where halfway through the dance, it was like, ‘Oh, I think I just crossed a line.’”

Ryan finished his tale by confessing that he escorted Blake home, before cutting just short of exposing the memory’s final details.

“And then I walked her home…And, uh, you know, I don't really need to go into what happened after that.”
