    This Tweet About A Mom's Amazing New Boyfriend Is Giving Everyone Hope For A Second Shot At Love

    All hail mug man.

    If you're wondering whether the guy you're dating is good enough, I'd advise you to read this tweet by 19-year-old University of Arkansas student Ana Stanowick:

    my dad used to get so mad every time my mom would come home w a new coffee mug (she likes to collect them) and her new bf literally built her a wall to display her collection. this is why we don’t settle for loser boys, ladies!!!!!

    An icon.

    Let me guess, your man hasn't built you a wall with his bare hands, stood on a ladder, and filled it with your mug collection? So what are you still doing here?!

    Anywho, Twitter was so touched by the story of Stanowick's mom's relationship redemption that they started sharing their own mothers' stories.

    @AnaStanowick_ @brewrites I LOVE this. My dad used to literally never move from the couch and make my mom do everything for him. Her new boyfriend is constantly trying to help her and do things for her and she has no idea what to with herself! It's so sweet to watch.

    @AnaStanowick_ my dad was an addict and emotionally abusive. and would call my mom fat and make fun of her for trying to lose weight. my stepdad bought them paddleboards so they can go together, paid for a personal trainer and goes on hikes with her daily bc he knew it was important to her.

    @LDice1019 @KingWomp @AnaStanowick_ @brewrites same thing w/ my mom! my dad is lazy, &she finally had enough & her boyfriend now does so much for her & me! I went on a 16+ hour car trip &her bf let me borrow his car! one time i asked to drive me bc i was scared to uber alone & he said he only would if I’d return the favor🙄

    People have also picked up on the second-best part of the photo...her mom's apparent love of frogs.

    Stanowick gave us some background on all the frog stuff: "Her mom got her a frog mug when she was little and it broke, so since then she has just been trying to replace the original one and it quickly became an obsession."

    @raychillenn @Aminxq @AnaStanowick_ b e w a r e

    Now we're all waiting to see if her loving boyfriend (aka mug man) will be making a shrine for the frogs, too.

    In conclusion, if you are a shitty boyfriend or husband, you can and you will be replaced. Ladies, go get your man!
