Wasn't yesterday just fanfuckintastic? A ton of lovedrunk, pie-eyed couples aspiring to realize their dreams of finally living out the rom-com movie they loved, and you loathed...madly running around for overpriced dinners, and budget-obliterating bottles of wine at tastefully overcrowded candlelit ristorantes (cause that's how you fancy spell restaurants, right) staffed by polished and meticulously groomed waiters that expect nothing less than the hefty kind of tip that'll send a man into a brothy sea of Top Ramen till next paycheck. Yeah, all rants aside. The 'holiday' is over, and these people brought their A game on Twitter when it came to expressing their 'Valentines Remorse' or lack thereof.
Harvey's Supermarket in Albany, Ga. ended up being the unexpected, though perfect setting for two lovebirds to tie the knot. Mary and Larry Tinson reunited at Harvey's Supermarket where they originally met four years ago on Thanksgiving when they were looking for last-minute recipe additions, to get married. Congrats to these two!
Every now and then we witness something or hear a story that crushes our pessimism and makes us believe that true love is real. Rosey Blair was on a flight home with her partner when she bore witness to one of these exact situations. And lucky for everyone at home, she live-tweeted the entire, nauseatingly cute experiences.
In what is hopefully the last bit of Bee Movie meme-ing this year, a freshman at Baylor University wrote the script to Bee Movie by hand for his girlfriend as some sort of Christmas gift. Who says romance isn’t dead ironic?
Conner Fastenau spent three hours, three human hours, 180-EARTH MINUTES, transcribing the 2007 script to Bee Movie, the film about a talking bee that Jerry Seinfeld made for some reason, as sign of his romantic attraction for an adult human woman. She reportedly “got a good laugh,” so it was “worth it,” Fastenau told Buzzfeed.
Bee Movie has been the subject of a strange resurgence of late. Earlier this year, someone put the script to Bee Movie on a shirt in really small print, and just last month, a video that featured all of Bee Movie except every time someone said “bee” the playback sped up went viral. The world continues to be in awe not only of Bee Movie’s very existence, but also ongoing cultural relevance.
Russell Wilson wanted to shout his love from the Twitter tops with (more than one) #WomanCrushWednesday posts about Ciara. He searched desperately for the words to describe her beauty and settled on a mash-up of corny, poetic words from the first creative writing website he found.
Since the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, people have been hoping their siblings, Harry and Pippa respectively, would get together as well. There was even a rumor that the two were caught kissing at the wedding in 2011.
Now, according to an insider in an interview with OK! Magazine, they finally got together like everyone predicted. The insider said, "They're trying to play it coy but there's no doubt that this is developing into something serious."
And indeed, it must be serious because other reports according to magic.co.uk are saying that the two had a romantic dinner with pasta and the music of Adele. If that's not serious, I don't know what is.
When Michael John Kent proposed to his girlfriend in Reykjavik, Iceland they probably thought they had the street all to themselves. They discovered later that a bystander had captured the perfect photo of the proposal just at the right time. When he didn't hear back from her after giving out the wrong email the search was on and he took to the internet to find this mystery photographer.

Much to the couple's delight, they found her thanks to the powers of social media.
The woman who took the photo, Jessica Bowe, had already posted it to her Instagram. Later the happy couple went back to Iceland to meet their photographer and thank her for the image. They even did a quick interview with a local news outlet in the video above.
Jennifer Lawrence mentioned in her December Vogue interview that she couldn't get a date. This is what she confessed to the magazine, which Travis Fishburn of Boise, Idaho heard loud and clear:
“I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me I feel like I need to meet a guy, with all due respect, who has been living in Baghdad for five years who has no idea who I am.”
Now Fishburn has graciously offered to fix her problem by taking her out on a date. The video is growing in popularity, maybe Jennifer Lawrence will see it and let him help her out with her "boy troubles".
While strolling along the beach in surely a very romantic setting, a German couple spied what is believed to be the oldest message in a bottle in the world.
As it says in The Telegraph:
Marianne Winkler, a retired post office worker, found the message from the past while on holiday with her husband on the North Sea island of Amrum.
Mrs Winkler found the bottle in April, but was shy of publicity and the full story has only now emerged.
"It's always a joy when some one finds a message-in-a-bottle on the beach," she told the Amrum News, a local website.
But the 108-year-old message was not the passionate last gasp of a tortured soul or even the cry for help from a long lost castaway. Rather all that was inside was a postcard written in English, German and Dutch promising a shilling to the person who returned it with information on where and how it was found.
Love wasn't the culprit here. It was science.
The return address pointed Winkler to the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth, England.
It turned out the bottle was one of 1,020 released into the North Sea between 1904 and 1906 by George Parker Bidder, a former president of the association.
Bidder released the bottles as part of a project to find out about deep sea currents.
The bottles were specially designed to float just above the sea bed, so they would be carried by the currents deep below the surface.
The association was very happy to receive the bottle and even gave Winkler an antique shilling for her trouble.
While the Guinness World Records has yet to officially award the bottle the 'oldest in the world', it makes for a great story.
Look at this romantic couple:
For some, being one of the best football players in the country just isn't enough.
New England Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski just wants a little love in his life, so the good people at Funny or Die decided to immortalize his longing for romance in the film A Gronking to Remember, opposite model Charlotte McKinney.
For Gronk, that romance involves spiking the most thoughtful of things on his lady's backside. From roses, a box of chocolates up to an eventual engagement ring, it's a tale that will surely inspire you to appreciate the sentimental things in life.
Image this is a butt:
At least it showcases him wanting some mature love as opposed to the video released in May of him motorboating a stripper.
