Dan didn't actually plan a party because he didn't think Wendy would accept his invitation. As soon as she did, Dan began to talk to his friends and pulled a party together at the last minute. Luckily, he did it. It was the night of the party and the pair instantly hit it off. They drank, danced, and chatted with each other all night. Even when all of the guests left, Wendy stayed behind to hang out with Dan. They had obvious chemistry, but that doesn't mean things worked out for them right away.

Wendy had just gotten out of a long-term relationship and Dan was enjoying the college partying, so they chose to just be friends. They had gotten extremely close, and after six months, they decided they were ready to try things out as a couple. Seven years later, the couple was still together and still in love. Unfortunately, at this point Wendy realized something: they had changed so much in those years, and they had no idea who they were without each other. So she had to make a painful decision.

Wendy realized she needed to break up with Dan so they could find themselves and search for who they were as individuals. Even though it was extremely difficult, Dan knew she was right. During their breakup, Wendy started her YouTube channel called Wendy's Curls. Wendy gave hairstyling advice and posted beauty tutorials. She realized her calling, and soon enough, she was brought back together with Dan. Their relationship was just as strong as ever and they were about to enter a new, exciting phase.

Dan began to appear in Wendy's videos and they soon realized that fans loved seeing them together. They began making videos together. They gave relationship advice and spoke about their life as a couple. Dan created an Instagram account, which quickly gained over 25,000 followers, but not nearly as much as Wendy's 105,000 followers. In December of 2017, the couple celebrated their 10-year anniversary, but they had no idea what the milestone would mean for them.

To mark their 10th anniversary, Wendy decided to post a side-by-side picture on her Instagram page. The picture on the left was of the couple when they first began to date, and on the right was a current photo. Even though it was a pretty normal thing to do, the post blew up. It only took a few weeks for it to gain over 60,000 likes. Major news outlets, such as The Independent, The Daily Mail, and The Sun, began to pick it up. But why was this photo so popular?
