This Modern Couple's Love Story Began on 23andMe

By Pippa Raga

In these days of modern love, where everyone is meeting their significant others on Tinder or Bumble or through swiping right and left, it's easy to forget that there was a time, not too long ago, when online dating was a foreign practice that was somewhat looked down upon by people who found love the old-fashioned way.

This became increasingly clear to me when I stumbled upon one young man's internet love story, which stopped me in my tracks. In a now-deleted reddit post, a 29-year-old man penned his story of how he found love in probably the most unsuspecting of places: the DNA and genetics testing kit known as 23andMe.
