How often people do blame social media for a relationship gone wrong? How often have we heard of breakups because of Facebook posts and messages and blue ticks of WhatsApp? But here is a love story that started brewing on Twitter and reached its conclusion with a Twitter-themed proposal.

Anuj Patel and Sumita Dalmia, a newly engaged Indian couple living in Georgia, Atlanta, took the Internet by storm when they posted the news about their la romance sur Twitter on the microblogging site. Both, social media buffs interacted for the first time via Twitter in September 2013 when Patel tweeted if anyone would like to go to the annual Jazoo music festival with him because he had an extra ticket. To his surprise, one person was actually interested.

Sumita Dalmia replied the next day asking him if he still had that extra ticket

Tweets turned into Direct Messages (DM) and DMs to text messages and phone calls. Meeting was inevitable, and thus followed the love story.

Patel decided to take the leap and propose Dalmia in the most romantic way possible on December 20, 2015. He decided to put her on a treasure hunt giving her clues to finally find him. She was treated with a horse carriage ride, taken to a hotel, was asked to change into another dress that was waiting for her and then headed to the hotel’s helipad. He even live tweeted all his clues with the hashtag #SumitaFindAnuj.

And there he was waiting for her with his final ‘tweet’ asking: “Will you marry me?”

And guess what, she said ‘Yes’.

They plan to incorporate Twitter in their wedding celebrations as well and have even decided the hashtag for the big day: #Tweethearts2016, they told Mashable.

Well, after the Elizabeth Gallaghar affair ended in naught in 2014 (a man had posted on Reddit, inviting any woman by the name of his ex-girlfriend to go on a world trip with him, but despite good vibes from across the world, the two did not hit it off at all), this story sure gives some hope to romancers of the Digital Age.

Serendipity 2.0, you think?
