There are a lot of love songs out there that I’ve never quite understood.
Some of the lyrics to these romantic melodies just baffle me. Like, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore.” First of all, how often are you getting hit with pizza to the face? Second, as Iron Man once said, “If you throw one more moon at me, I’m gonna lose it.” Nothing about this situation seems alluring. It’s all terribly dangerous and would leave our planet’s tides horrible askew.
But maybe I don’t get it because I’m simply not a hopeless romantic. The people of Twitter certainly seem to be, though. Especially these 10 wide-eyed wanderers.
10. The gem
My story will go on and on.
Scientist: Where’s the diamond?

8. At a crossroads
I’m only upset because I’m waiting for my turn. Gotta get them bells.
i wonder how all the boyfriends that ignore their girlfriends to play cod feels now that their girlfriend is ignoring them to play animal crossing

7. Don’t go there
Nothing belongs anywhere in the perfect home.
ME: *walks by to put anything away*
WIFE: [not even looking up from her phone] that doesn’t go there

6. A little spark
Obsession never felt so compulsory.

4. Setting it up
This is absolutely devious and I love it.
My brothers ex had been stealing our Netflix for the past two months now by disguising her account as “settings” and honestly I ain’t even mad. I’m just really disappointed in myself for actually believing that an account named “settings” would legitimately be Netflix settings pic.twitter.com/fSn3BSCcZh

3. Get a load of this
My works must be known.
Any time I unload the dishwasher I “accidentally” leave it open just so my wife knows what I did.

2. Long distance relationship
We’re all discovering new and innovative ways to almost be together.

1. Matrimonial intrigue
You’re probably wondering why I’ve gathered you all here today…

I may not be the biggest romantic softy, but after a list like that, I can’t help but root for love in the world. Thank you, Twitter. You’ve restored my capacity to care yet again.
