After a few direct chats and two years, a woman got engaged to a man who reacted to her tweet.
Madison O’Neill used Twitter to find a replacement after a split left her without a wedding date. Two years later, she became engaged to the man who volunteered to be her plus one.
The call to action
A woman went on Twitter and asked if anyone wanted to be her date to a wedding the next day, not expecting anyone to respond.
Love at first sight for DM
Charlie Dohrmann, Madison’s high school friend, saw this as an opportunity.
“In high school, he thought I was cute, but he never had the nerve to approach me. He saw that tweet as an opportunity, and he thought, ‘hey, why not?'”‘” she explained.
Madison received a direct message from Charlie asking whether he would be her plus one, and despite her reservations, she decided to give him a chance.
Admirers to devotees
Their date was not uncomfortable at all; both of them had a good time. Soon after the wedding, they began dating seriously.
Two and a half years later, Charlie proposed to Madison in San Diego, where he served in the Navy.
“At first, I thought he was joking, but then I freaked out when I realized he wasn’t,” she explained. “I had no idea this would happen.”
We have come full circle.
Madison chose to tell her story on Twitter, where she first met Charlie. Users applauded Charlie’s courage and the couple’s meet-cute when she tweeted about how she and Charlie met.
“It’s incredible to see so many people wishing us success and complementing our narrative,” Madison said. “It’s definitely adding to the excitement.
Aiming at his target
Thanks to Charlie’s willingness to respond to Madison’s tweet, what began as an appeal for a date ended in a marriage.
Madison has a ring on her finger, a popular social media image, and a prospective wedding date, thanks to his bravery.
