Couples' Real-Life Love Stories Will Make You Believe In Fairytales (Photos)

by Gillian Fuller

Everybody loves a good meet-cute story, and new Instagram account thewaywemet is seeking to cash in on that obsession.

The account, launched two weeks ago by Los Angeles-based Brooklyn Sherman, accepts submissions from couples hoping to tell their “how we met” stories.

Sherman, who is currently single, told she's always been a hopeless romantic. She started the account, in part, to prove true love isn't just for fairytales.

She explained,

I realized there were too many great stories and I didn't wanna keep them to myself. So I started the Instagram as a way to put these stories back into the world and give people hope that there is someone for everyone and you will find them!

Judging by the account's popularity -- it has over 7,000 followers, up 5,000 from just yesterday -- Sherman isn't the only social media maven to believe in the power of love.

As of this morning, 28 happy couples have shared their love stories on thewaywemet.
