What Happened to the UW Madison Students Who Fell in Love on Snapchat?

If you don’t believe in love at first sight, just take a look at this Snapchat love story that recently went viral.

Once upon a time, a young lady known as “Mystery Girl” professed her love for a potential bae named “Vikings Fan” after she came across him in the University of Wisconsin-Madision library. “Mystery Girl,” whose real name is Abby, spotted a guy wearing a Minnesota Vikings jersey and posted a Snapchat to the campus story that said “I’m seriously in love with you. Find me.” Naturally when “Vikings Fan”—real name Reed—responded to the snap with a time and a place to meet, the entire campus jumped on board and made it their mission to make sure Abby and Reed miraculously found each other.

Since then, New York magazine managed to get ahold of the “couple” to get the lowdown on their viral love story and how they’ve been dealing with the fame. According to Abby, she didn’t even think her snap would get posted. 

“I hadn’t found the right lighting, or taken my hair down, or taken my glasses off,” she said. “I just opened my phone and recorded my snap in one try.”

The 22-year-old seniors admit that their meetup was “emotional,” and that they have spent almost every day together since they met.  

Despite the time they’ve spent together, they definitely haven’t defined themselves as a couple. Abby, a zoology major, is graduating soon and has plans to move to Florida shortly after. Meanwhile, Reed, who is a biochemical-engineering student, has plans to go to medical school. Wherever these two end up, they’ll be living happily-ever-after in our Snapchat dreams.

Danielle is a senior at the University of Georgia majoring in English and minoring in Sociology. You can usually find her dividing her time between being Campus Correspondent of Her Campus UGA, binge-watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix and daydreaming about being one of Beyonce's backup dancers.
