“OK, tell me why I'm at Starbucks right now, and I'm working,” Megan whispered in the now-viral video, “and like I'm super focused, concentrated, because today's big day for me and I have a lot of work to get done, and I saw that there was this guy sitting next to me. But he's been so focused on his work too, and I was like, hey, he looks pretty cute from my peripheral, but I'm like, whatever, I'm done trying to find hot men."

She says the mysterious man then got up to go to the bathroom.

“He was like, ‘Are you gonna be here for the next like, three or four minutes?’ I was like, ‘Yeah,’” she recalled. “He was like, 'Oh, can you watch over my stuff?’”

Megan gushed: “Tell me why this man is actually like, really cute.”

She expressed her hopes that her could-be boo would be “so impressed” by her surveillance skills that he might actually shoot his shot.

And she was right! In fact, he was so blown away, that he trusted her with his stuff while he took a quick trip to the grocery store.

The 25-year-old was devastated to learn that the man she met in Starbucks was four years her junior.

But not all hope was lost. After a surprise turn of events, it looks like our boy might just have a shot after all!

After the two parted ways at the coffee shop, Mr. Macchiatto slid into her DMs with a charming message. “OK, I got a DM,” she said, showing a screenshot of their interaction.

“Hey Megan, it was nice meeting you earlier. I missed you as I couldn’t trust anyone to watch my Mac whilst I went to Lulu Lemon,” he wrote with a sad face. The rest, we guess, is history!

It’s unclear exactly how far things will go between Megan and her mystery man, but most of us were happy to be along for the ride!
