This Girl’s Story About Her Mom’s New Boyfriend Taught Us What Love Really Means

University of Arkansas student Ana Stanowick posted a photo to Twitter of her mom’s boyfriend who built Ana’s mom a display wall for her mug collection, and we could all take notes.

The tweet has over 200K retweets, and nearly 1 million likes, so clearly Ana isn’t the only one who thinks this gesture was worthy of some appreciation. What could be perceived as a woman who simply has too many mugs has been turned into a lesson for all of us on how to value our partners.

Ana shared the photo to her account on June 12 saying, “my dad used to get so mad every time my mom would come home with a new coffee mug (she likes to collect them) and her new bf literally built her a wall to display collection. this is why we don’t settle for loser boys, ladies!!!!!”

This tweet sparked a thread of other users sharing stories about their own parents who have moved on to better relationships than their previous ones.
