These Bookworms Found Love On Twitter And Now They’re Married And It’s The Best Thing Ever

They found love in a Waterstones.

Posted on

Everyone was pretty much loving the Waterstones Oxford Street Twitter account at the time.

Life goals: to be as funny as whoever runs that Waterstones oxford street twitter account

Which is now gone because the branch closed down. 💔

What happened to the waterstones oxford street twitter account? That account was the best, where'd it go?


The love affair almost didn't happen, as Jonathan said he actually ignored a previous tweet Victoria had sent.

He said: "I'd seen Victoria's first tweet but I ignored it. Then, for reasons I don't really know why, replied to her second one a few months' later."

And here is the first response he sent to her:

@ameliesoleil Pff, he's not that dreamy in real life.


Victoria shared their love story on Twitter and has received more than 7,000 retweets and 24,000 likes.

Dear reader, I married him #noreally #yeahidunnohoweither

Victoria said the response has been lovely. She added: "I'm still amazed by how quickly it took off."

@georgiaface @JonathanOB_ maaaaate it's gone so mental. It was briefly trending. I'm like what????

Jonathan, who now works as part of Innocent smoothie's social media team, added: "It feels great. Really nice seeing how many people are happy for a pair of strangers."

@VictoriaOB_ @wstonesoxfordst @jeremyduns I need to know THIS WHOLE STORY. How amazing and wonderful - congratulations!

People are loving their story.
