'The Way We Met' Documents Love Stories On Instagram (And It's The Cutest Thing Ever)

Romance isn't dead. And this Instagram account sets out to prove just that.

'The Way We Met' tells the stories of how couples first met. From the avid YouTubers who met at an event, to the couple who first clapped eyes on one another when they were covered in mud at their local harvest festival, their tales are truly wonderful.

Brooklyn Sherman, who founded the account, tells HuffPost UK Lifestyle that she was always fascinated by love and relationships.

"I had my heart broken at an early age and a couple of times since. I also broke a few hearts myself along the way. What I've realised personally is that through all of it, I've never given up on love.

"I guess you could say I'm a hopeless romantic."

Sherman noticed that marriage rates had dropped significantly since the 1960s and was fed up of her social media feeds being jam-packed with "glamourised" images of people's lives. So she decided to do something about it.

"One of my missions is to motivate people to get back into the world and start experiencing real life again, not just going out for their next best social media post," she reveals.

"The insecurities bred from social media are hindering peoples' belief that they are worthy of love. The truth is, love is out there, and The Way We Met is putting those stories on display.

"Maybe if they see all these wonderful stories of how people found true love in the most random of places at the most random times, they will stop feeling hopeless and hiding at home."
