Woman Asks Twitter If There’s A Man Who Wants To Be Her Wedding Date, 3 Years Later…

When you think of online dating, Tinder and OKCupid are usually the first things to pop into your mind – but what about Twitter? A Londoner named Llia Apostolou needed a date for her sister’s wedding back in 2014, so she put out an open call to the men of the Twittersphere, and one response she received ended up changing her life.

As Llia’s post was going viral with hundreds and hundreds of retweets and likes, a guy named Phil Gibson came across it and volunteered himself as tribute. “I can do this, I’ve got a suit and everything,” he enthusiastically commented, and so the awkward-slash-adorable banter ensued. Though Llia later admitted that she ended up going alone to the wedding for unknown reasons, she did meet up with Phil ‘IRL’ later that week, and the rest is history.

Read the full modern love story below, and let us know if you’ve ever unexpectedly met someone special online!

I can't help but picture him yelling I've got this! Then ripping off his shirt and there's a suit underneath.

That's nice and everything but can someone tell me why do you necessarily have to have a date for a wedding? Why can't it be enjoyed if you're on your own?

Perhaps it was a family wedding and she didn't want to deal with questions. Or maybe it was a wedding she just didn't want to attend alone.
