For his six month anniversary with his girlfriend Kristen, 26-year-old student and New Yorker Danny made a huge collage of photos of the two of them (they've known each other since middle school). The only problem, he told the Huffington Post in an email, was that he didn't know how he was ever going to top it.
Well, let's just say he did. The day before the couple's one-year anniversary, Danny and a group of friends plastered flyer below all over New York City. On it, Danny declared, "I LOVE HER" and told the story of how he and Kristen met and fell in love (she friend zoned him for years). Then he asked anyone reading to take a picture with or of the flyer and post it to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #EYJDK (Enjoy Your Journey Danny and Kristen.)
I know. Awwwwwwwwww.
The flyer very quickly went viral -- we stumbled upon it on Reddit -- and Danny said that they've received over 1,000 photos since. He called the response "mind blowing" and said that he and Kristen have experienced a "roller coaster of feelings" in the aftermath. At first Kristen laughed at the photos people took making fun of Danny, but she was pretty psyched the evening of their anniversary when Matt Lauer (Kristen's celebrity crush mentioned in the flyer) tweeted the photo.
Kristen's response, according to Danny? "OMG!"
