Finding a relationship on social media isn’t a myth anymore in this day and age. Recently, a basketball player, and a former iCarly actress met through Instagram and Twitter.
Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons and Jennette McCurdy have struck up a relationship recently, which all started when Drummond posted 3 pictures of McCurdy on Instagram tagged under #WCW (Women Crush Wednesday).
McCurdy soon took notice and responded with “nice to meet you! ;)” on Twitter, and tweeted she wanted to see him play, not too long after, they tweeted out a picture together, at their first meeting.
Closely following that encounter, they were spotted holding hands at Disneyland.
In the end, not everyone can meet via pictures, but it sure looks like it looked like it worked for this star couple.
