Finding love can be a difficult endeavor.

Even with apps at our fingertips that can sort and organize everyone interested in a relationship, it can still feel as random as going to a bar to hit on someone.


Luckily, even in a situation as bleak as that, we can still find some great and wholesome stories. Last week, on Tinder, a woman named Tilly matched with a man named Andrew.

After some back and forth, Andrew went and made a new Twitter account (@tillytortellini) and shared a tweet.

Step by step instructions to make tortellini? It's a little odd, don't you think?

Luckily, Tilly quickly explained what was going on.

In the course of their conversation, Tilly told Andrew that she wants to become an amateur chef. Andrew, on the other hand, makes a mean tortellini.

Unfortunately, Tinder doesn't allow you to share photos with others in messages. This presented a problem if you want to show off your pasta making skills.

Andrew did the most sensible thing.

No, I don't mean 'ask to switch to text messages,' I mean make an account on a completely different service, Twitter, and share that with her.

In turn, the world gets to see the most important part of making pasta dough: betrayal.


Somehow all this trust and betrayal turns into a powerful tortellini army.

This must be pretty nice for Tilly. Normally when people are sharing Tinder stories, they're more along the lines of bad experiences.

All this effort and we gotta ask the question: Did it work?

YES!

That's a lot of work done by an account with only six tweets.

In an interview with Insider, Andrew said he learned how to make tortellini with his younger sister. He also revealed she's his secret for winning dates like this.

He said:

"I am only good at making tortellini. She's the real chef in the family. She trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, and my secret is that I go to her for date recommendations."

I mean, that sounds a little less than romantic now.

But it's nothing a few jokes can't fix.



Andrew actually has his own Twitter account; this isn't his first foray into the social media platform. He posts with the username @sociologybro.

He often jokes and posts about the going-ons at Columbia University.

Though if you read his tweets recently, he is mostly joking about the newfound fame.

And just in case this adorable tortellini plan hadn't worked, the rest of the internet had Andrew's back, like a hive-minded wingman.



With all this excitement said and done, it's probably best we let Andrew and Tilly enjoy their relationship in peace.

For us, we'll always have the betrayed dough.

Sometimes life just doesn't have our best interests at heart.

You've hurt yourself in the kitchen, you've hurt yourself in the garden, you've hurt yourself working around the house. But have you ever hurt yourself while drinking water? Have you ever injured yourself while looking at the microwave?

When we think of teenagers one of the first things that comes to mind is the idea that they have a total know-it-all thing going on. I'll be honest, as a teen I was convinced I had things at least mostly figured out. Oh god, so wrong. So very, very wrong.

So now that I'm an adult, there are tons of things I try to explain to the kids and teens in my life, but I know they just sit and stare at me blankly the way I did to my family members who tried to guide me. It's a cycle, I've just come to accept it.

We can all agree getting older is the worst decision we make as humans, right? Who thought this was the best way to live our lives? Being a kid was the best! Everything seemed to be easier, including playing sports, making friends, somehow learning foreign languages without taking four years of college courses. But then...you grow up, losing all those skills.
