We all deserve better than this, folks.
Tinder is the black hole of unadulterated, shamelessly thirsty modern day 'romance', and these moments capture the inevitable cringe that almost inevitably pops up every time you swipe right in synch with someone else on Tinder. If you ever find yourself stuck in a solidly shitty Tinder conversation headed fast for nowhere, break out this particularly stellar pick-up line: "C'mon, yolo and stuff". Riiight?
Almeda Errell (71) and Gary Hardwick (now 18) were married just three weeks after meeting at Almeda's son's funeral.
Gary, who's previous girlfriend was 77, tied the not to his "dream woman" in a ceremony he arranged for just £137 in six days.
The romance was first really recognized when both sat next to each other at a Chuck E Cheese's for his aunt's daughter's birthday. From then on, they started seeing each other every night and got the blessing of most friends and family.
In what weird convoluted version of their universe did these two newly heartbroken individuals anticipate such a prime and uncomfortable photoshoot not being met with open ridiculing? Suffice to say, people on Twitter couldn't pass up the chance to give 'em a proper mocking.
In some countries, PDAs (or "Public Displays of Affection") are quite normal. For example, in Argentina, it's quite acceptable for two people to practically suck each other's faces off in public places. This isn't the case in the United States, where PDAs are largely frowned upon as being awkward or unnecessary (this country was founded by Puritans after all). Drew Phillips and Scott Cleveland set out to find those who insist on making it weird for all of us... and make it a little weirder...
Well well, this didn't fail to capture the endearing awkwardness of a couple of life's milestones. What better time to rehash on the cringe-inducing times of old than Valentine's Day or (Happy Alone Day)?
