One Twitter user’s question about whether “meet cutes” occur in real life was given a resounding response by other users.
Do meet cutes actually happen in real life? I wonder if theres sb here who bumped into their future wife on the street, spilled coffee over a cute stranger, dated their delivery man 🤔— jen ✌🏽♿🌈 (@bookavid) December 5, 2017
Writer @bookavid said that where she’s from, people don’t really talk to random people in public, and she wanted to know if these stories actually happened to real people.
It's prolly a regional thing but strangers in public/public transport/cafés etc dont talk in my country unless sb introduces u. If u do, you're considered weird.— jen ✌🏽♿🌈 (@bookavid) December 5, 2017
Well, if these replies to her tweet are anything to go by, it seems they really do.
This person has their grandma to thank for their marriage.
Met my partner b/c grandma forced me to 'socialize' with kids in the park (I'm an introvert). We were 4. 24 years later, we're married.— K. Roy (@Roy_Writes) December 5, 2017

I met my husband b/c he dropped a bunch of boxes while moving into his college dorm— Bethany Robison (@BethanyRobison) December 5, 2017
Airports may seem like boring places, but the boredom and heavy suitcases can make for a good romantic proposition.
Airport, 3am. Stranger offered to carry my luggage.
Me: NO THANKS SCARY GIANT
Turns out he was my friend’s brother and now he’s my husband.— One Last Petal (@Belledenne) December 5, 2017
When your friend’s faith in you pays off and you have to pay up.
At a bar full of self-pity, told my BFF no one wld date me. She bet me $20 anyone I asked out wld say yes. I let her pick the guy.
So I walked up to the stranger & said "Do you want to go out w/me?"
He said "I don't know u but I guess".

Some stories are just plain odd, but at least they ended in love.
I met my future wife because a goat peed on a friend of mine at a party.— Shaun Harris (@TheShaunHarris) December 5, 2017
Don’t worry, he elaborated.
There are rows of fenced-in backyards you have to walk by. One of the houses was having a birthday party and they rented a goat.— Shaun Harris (@TheShaunHarris) December 5, 2017
The goat was terrified and they had built a little stockade of bicycles around it to protect it. The guys who rented were openly admitting it was a mistake and they were trying to keep the poor thing calm.— Shaun Harris (@TheShaunHarris) December 5, 2017
As we were walking past this backyard the goat peed against the fence and because it was a slat fence a good amount splashed through and onto my friend's legs.— Shaun Harris (@TheShaunHarris) December 5, 2017
Love can bloom in unusual places, it seems.
