Weird Or Awesome? This Couple's Relationship Has Over 8,000 Likes

Relationships are hard...even when you live in the same time zone. When you're a continent apart, things become infinitely more complicated. Which is why we so enjoy a good story of love conquering all, especially in a long-distance relationship. Such is the case with Oxford-based Lucy and Michigan-based Kaelyn — they're not only making it work but are also documenting the entire process on social media.
The couple met through a Taylor Swift Tumblr site Kaelyn was running at the time. Their YouTube videos as well as their Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr accounts document the times when they actually get to be together, in person. In less adept hands, this could be a self-indulgent exercise of the highest order, but instead — as demonstrated by the YouTube and Facebook stats — it’s a humorous and often thought-provoking experience. The couple has such a huge fan base that they even have a merch section on their site, as well as a donate button where contributions can be made toward their next plane ticket (apparently, it was a request from their fans, but yes, these women are essentially crowdsourcing the funding it takes for a long-distance relationship).
These two individuals have harnessed the power of social media not only to communicate the trials and tribulations of long-distance love but also to strengthen their relationship. We wish them all the best and look forward to the next installment in their love affair. But you tell us: Is this oversharing, or are you as intrigued by them as we are? (The Hairpin)
