We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to show us their coming out couple glow-up. Here are just some of the heartwarming submissions:



"I dated guys for my entire 26 years of existence. I thought mediocre happiness was my reality — until I met this one girl, about seven months ago, who completely swept me off of my feet, and my world will never be the same! ❤️" —jennifert46d2833b6



"The left image is me in 2009 attending high school prom with my then-boyfriend. The right is me in 2015 attending my wedding with my wife. I'd say the glow-up is pretty real and very strong since I went from small fem to big butch." —britneyw47152e52c



"Left: my senior prom, in 2014, with my best friend from high school, pre-coming out. I'm smiling but was miserable in that dress and makeup. Right: my girlfriend's semi-formal, in 2017, post-coming out. We've been dating for almost 10 months, and it's the happiest I've ever been!" —ebank14


"High school freshman me vs. college freshman me. I decided to be just friends with this guy — and fell madly in love with this girl! She taught me that it is more than okay to own my sexuality, and she held my hand through my journey of self-acceptance. We are in our second year of dating and couldn’t be happier!" —sophiekibi



"I deleted most of the pics of my ex-boyfriends, but this sums up my relationships with them: awkward where neither of us are super happy. And then there’s me and my girlfriend of nearly two years, so much in love and always ecstatic to be together!" —victoriaz4a8b03a00
