Ladies and gentlemen, prepare for your faith in true love to be wholly restored. An Imgur user posted the photo above showing his girlfriend asleep on her bed next to a pile of textbooks. At first glance, it may seem like a random snapshot that's not worth a click, but it piqued the interest of so many people on the internet that it went utterly viral for all the right reasons.
The heartwarming caption reads, "My 38 year old girlfriend just started her second quarter of college. She's raised two kids, 15 and 10, on her own, has piss all parents and was the victim in not one but two domestic violence cases. This is how I found her tonight. I'm so proud of this woman I could burst. We went wedding ring shopping earlier today and I think I'm ready to make the best decision of my life."
Imgur users collectively swooned over his kind words, so much so that the photo has been viewed more than 2 million times and received over 13,000 upvotes on the site. Plus, people couldn't resist weighing in and offering their approval of his desire to marry her. One user commented "Marry the sh*t out of her" while another said "Wife her. And treat her like your very own princess." We couldn't agree more!
The icing on the cake of this sweet story? The boyfriend followed up to his original post by sharing a photo of him and his girlfriend, aka the cutest darn couple selfie we've ever seen.
Yep, we'll be checking back for engagement photos on Imgur soon. In the meantime, we'll be cleaning up our melted hearts from the floor.
