When you reach out to somebody on a dating app or a website, there's no guarantee that they will be a match or even respond. But that wasn't the case for and who first met on Twitter just over three years ago, and announced their engagement on Saturday.
The relationship started in December 2014, when Stachowicz posted a public tweet expressing her desire to go on a date with Axelrod. He instantly responded to her with a playful message that would mark the start of an endearing internet love story just in time for Valentine's Day.
It all started with a straightforward message from Stachowicz, a personal trainer.
Axelrod, who works as a digital producer and sports writer for WKYC, responded with a witty tweet that same day, asking if she would be buying.
Stachowicz reassured him that she would pay for the date, and that she would even take him to his favorite place.
But he agreed to go anywhere, as long as he could order chicken fingers.
She replied, "done and done."
But that wasn't the end of the heartwarming conversation.
On Saturday, Axelrod returned to the original thread of tweets, quoting Stachowicz's very first message to him. Mimicking her first message from 2014, he wrote: "I want to marry @torydanae."
He then added a photo, captioned: "I bent the knee. She said yes!"
At the time of this post, Axelrod's tweet has over 13,000 likes and 1,000 retweets, and people are loving the couple's story.
It's giving some people hope that they can find their soul mate over social media, too.
Axelrod and Stachowicz did not immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.
