Here's an Epic Real-Life Love Story One Passenger Live-Tweeted on an Airplane

This is definitely the best romance since "When Harry Met Sally"

Buckle your seat belts, because you're about to hear a pretty incredible story, courtesy of a thread posted by Twitter user Rosey Blair.

"Last night on a flight home, my boyfriend and I asked a woman to switch seats with me so we could sit together. We made a joke that maybe her new seat partner would be the love of her life and well, now I present you with this thread," she wrote in the intro tweet for this titillating tale.

The new seat partners, who, in the absence of their real names we'll call Martha and Jim, immediately hit it off.

Rosey remarked that both of them looked very fit, and it turns out there's a good reason for that: they're both personal trainers. This is the best image we've got of them:

Plus, they're both vegetarians. Already, they're off to a better start than most Tinder dates.

While the only visuals that Rosey could provide us were the ones you get from behind their seats, she was able to scope out some adorable, classic signs of subtle flirting, such as touching each other's arms and using the limited space of their armrest to allow their elbows to kiss. Plus, Martha told Jim she'd send him a Ted Talk once they land, a sure sign of an intellectual union of souls.

Every great romance has a baby and this one is no exception. A baby kept turning around to wave at the new couple, clearly blessing them with her baby instincts for love. "There is no TV on this flight but there is WiFi and romance!" Rosey wrote. The chatting continued.

The elbows got closer.

They didn't order drinks, probably because they are both fitness-conscious, but they did decide to share a cheese board so this is officially the best first date ever.

He basically introduced her to his mother. And she reciprocated!

At some point, she took over his phone, so they're essentially in a relationship now.

Their bodies got closer and closer even though, according to Rosey, the plane had no A/C.

Rosey bought extra hours of wifi because at this point there were plenty of people all over the world committed to seeing how all of this turned out. Who needs cable when you've got Twitter?

And then it happened: they went to the bathroom at the same time. Just leaving this here: Here's How Many People Have Had Sex on an Airplane.

Following the bathroom episode, Martha put her head on Jim's shoulder for the second, which everyone was very excited about.

Then they started to talk about what they want out of life as far as marriage and kids. Forget dating, these two are getting married once they are off the plane.

Once the plane finally landed, Rosey got a final snapshot of them walking off together, looking as though they are about to hold hands. After stalking them on Instagram, she confirmed that both of them are single (or rather, were single). It's unclear as of yet whether or not the couple was aware that their romance was being broadcast around the world, and now has over 38,000 likes, but we'll give you an update if they catch wind of the story and end up sending a comment.

For now, it's a happy ending.
