Love is in the air err… Internet. A 21st century love story has been brewing up a storm in the popular video sharing app, Vine!
Meet Curtis Lepore and Jessi Smiles:
According to our research: a month ago, they were strangers. Both of them had their own Vine accounts and were posting daily 6-second vlogs. They were gaining more followers and before you know it, sparks flew between the two (much to the delight from their respective fans).
It all started with two simple tweets.
Soon enough, the pair took to sending each other short little love notes through Vine. See for yourself!
Even Nev from MTV’s Catfish took notice:
Fast forward a week or two, and fans were ecstatic to find out that the lovebirds were planning to meet in person for the first time in New York City. On August 4, hundreds of fans eagerly waited at the Washington Square at 3 PM to witness the precious moment. But Nev had something else to say before the two met:
Today marks the third day into their virtual-turned-real relationship. Being the cyber-couple that they are, every step of their story is for all to see. Be on the lookout on their Twitter accounts (@curtislepore & @JessiSmiles__) and Vine to see for yourself!
On a sidenote: Jessi’s already met Curtis’s family!
Oh, young love.
There’s now a video about the whole story from Curtis. #swoon
