Did you suffer yet another lonely Valentine's Day? It may be because of that direct message you opted not to send.
If you want your love life to be more fulfilling this year, I have the ultimate solution. Sliding into your crush's DMs actually works, and the trending hashtag #WeMetOnTwitter proves it.
People are spreading the love by posting pictures with their significant other, and uploading screenshots of where their first exchanges went down: in the DMs.
The captions are what make these tweets total tearjerkers.
The real winners of the love stories show couples with their engagement rings.
There are even a few people celebrating wedding anniversaries.
Finding love through the DMs actually happens, people.
Some Twitter users are even posting pictures with their kids.
Naturally, pretty much everyone else who didn't experience these types of success stories has been posting about #WeMetOnTwitter in complete and utter disbelief.
Users are hilariously wondering if they've been using Twitter incorrectly this whole time.
I get it, the concept of finding a soulmate by sliding into his or her DMs can be pretty hard to believe.
People consider sending a DM to be difficult. This probably explains why there are models writing articles advising how to successfully pull it off.

Do a little research on her and figure out what she's passionate about, then strike up conversation about that topic. This will show that you are genuinely interested in her.
But, that approach assumes sliding into the DMs involves one-way traffic (for example, a guy going for a girl).
Clearly, #WeMetOnTwitter proves otherwise.
This woman decided to take that chance and slid into a man's DMs. The rest is history.
The bottom line is everyone can go and shoot their shot. Building up the courage to send that one message can really be worth it.
