There's no doubt that Twitter has a history of helping people find the love of their lives.

Just take it from this guy who made a deal with Wendy's for a year of free chicken nuggets.

For Llia Apostolou, what started as a date request via the social media platform has now turned into real-life wedding bells.

In July of 2014, Apostolou ironically used Twitter to find a date to her sister's wedding, offering "bonus points" to any guy that could also secure a temporary baby. Of the thousands of likes the tweet received, the post caught the attention of Phil Gibson, a stranger who enthusiastically agreed to Apostolou's request.

 

Following the initial tweet, Apostolou and Gibson discussed details of the date, with Gibson already making plans to meet the parents.

 

 

While the pair's plans to meet at the altar ultimately fell through, the two actually set a time to meet that same week. Three years later, Apostolou tweeted that she and Gibson had indeed tied the not, later assuring that it was not a part of a Twitter prank. Both Apostolou and Gibson received support from fellow Twitter users, some going so far as to call it "romantic." Maybe we've just been looking for love in all the wrong places.
