Twitter responds to New York Times' Modern Love with cringe-worthy, heartbreaking and heartwarming tales

AOL.com editors

The good, the bad, the ugly, the heartbreaking: The New York Times' Modern Love column has seen it all.

Running every week in the Style section, the column is filled with all kinds of love stories, sharing the romantic sagas of people across different decades, continents and backgrounds. Of course, you can only imagine how these stories have evolved over the column's 13 year history. Yesterday, adorable high school sweethearts flooded the narratives. Today, we hear less of those kinds of tales and more about Tinder nightmares. 

To celebrate the milestone, the publisher is seeking more and more stories from its readers. But, there's one catch: The love story has to be told in 13 words or less. 

And so, The New York Times asked and Twitter responded. From drunk hookups-turned-engagements to journeys of self-love, these are the stories that have caught our attention and resonated with us in more ways than one.
