Two 90-year-olds went on a blind date to a book store and the internet can't handle it.

Miriam Steiner, 93, and Harold Sharlin, 90, met up at Politics & Prose bookstore in Washington D.C after Harold's granddaughter Jenny set them up.

The adorable pair had lunch, chatted and ended up spending the whole afternoon together.

A member of staff at the bookstore snapped a photo of them together on their date and posted it to Facebook, where it has since been shared 2,800 times.

Just look how happy they are. 

The pair were set up by Harold's granddaughter Jenny, who works in a restaurant and was waiting on Miriam when she realised that her customer would actually make a super cute match for her single grandfather.

Miriam, whose husband died in 1999, said she hadn't dated since becoming a widow. 

"I loved him, and I didn't look for anyone else after that," she told

But after Jenny asked if she'd be interested in meeting up with her grandfather, Miriam thought: "What have I got to lose?"

Harold, who lost his spouse in 1998, said he has dated on and off ever since.

When the pair met at the bookstore, they instantly hit it off and had a good chat.

While they're not sure where their relationship may take them, the important thing is they had a great time. 

Miriam said their story was very "unusual" which is why she wasn't surprised it had been shared so many times. 

She added: "We're both in our 90s. We're both handicapped. Neither of us drive.

"It's not easy, making connections as a senior. But we need it. It's up there with Medicare and Social Security. I hope people remember that."
