Woman Live-Tweets Two Strangers Flirting On A Plane, But Doesn’t Expect It To Escalate So Quickly


Earlier this week, actress/writer/photographer Rosey Blair witnessed what she thinks might have been a spark of true love appear before her very eyes. On an airplane from New York to Dallas, Blair sat behind two people on an airplane who quickly went from being total strangers to seemingly having an instant connection.

So, Blair did something that has become somewhat common: she took out her phone, took some photos and posted her account of the meet-cute online for her Twitter and Instagram to see.
Rosey took to Twitter to explain what happened, opening the most romantic thread the micro-blogging website has ever seen by writing, “Last night on a flight home, my boyfriend and I asked a woman to switch seats with me so we could sit together. We made a joke that maybe her new seat partner would be the love of her life and well, now I present you with this thread.”

Cue the opening trumpets from ‘Love Is All You Need’…

The story’s virality was likely helped by the fact that Blair has sizable Instagram and Twitter followings (30,000 and 60,000 followers, respectively) but it’s likely the story’s wholesome relatable-ness and romcom-like nature that made it the super viral sensation that it’s become in the last few days.

“People Think This Story About A Guy Meeting A Girl On A Plane Is The Best Thing Ever,” wrote BuzzFeed. “After a midflight love connection went viral, a mystery couple gave everyone a glimmer of hope for a happy ending,” wrote ABC News.

Was Blair wrong to post about a cute couple she saw (and maybe even accidentally helped set up) on an airplane? Probably not.
