ince the creation of smartphones, many women have had the experience of receiving a creepy and unwanted photo of a certain part of a man's body. So it's understandable that this New Jersey woman was a bit suspicious when an unknown man sent her a private photo on Twitter.
But, it turned out to be the best thing to ever happen to her, and the amazing story that would unfold because of it will make you believe in true love.
Meet Elle Howley.
She’s an aspiring beauty guru from New Jersey with a slight addiction to the game Animal Crossing and a hilarious social media presence.
In March of 2016, Howley received a message on Twitter that would change everything.
It was from a guy she had never met before, and the message was a bit .. .shall we say ... off-putting.
“I’m gonna send you a pic of my Gundam,” it said.
For those of you unfamiliar, “Gundam,” refers to the “Gundam series,” a Japanese TV series featuring robots who wear suits known as Gundams, hence the name.
Building plastic models of said Gundams is a popular hobby among fans of the series.
However, when Howley first received the message, her mind instantly went somewhere else.
She seemed to think that the “Gundam” the young man was referring to was something else entirely, and she prepared herself for a photo that she would in no way want to look at.
But, in a shocking twist, he was indeed talking about an actual plastic model.
Howley posted this update after her initial comment.
This “Gundam guy” simply wanted to show off his handiwork.
And yes, it was totally adorable.
Howley reiterated her surprise and clarified what she was actually expecting.
We totally get it.
When a guy you don’t know sends you a message proclaiming his intent to show you his Gundam, it’s hard not to expect the worst.
But the surprises didn’t end there…
