Before there was Tinder, there were Facebook login glitches.

Six years ago, a man named Schuyler Benson from South Arkansas logged in to his Facebook account using his flip-phone. Surprisingly, he found himself logged into the account of a woman by the name of Celeste Zendler.

"I opened the browser, went to, and wasn't even given a chance to enter any login information. I was already logged in. I had to make several posts in order to find out I wasn't logged into my own account," Benson said in a post.

Benson had never met nor heard of Zendler until that point. Zendler was living in Boulder, Colorado and was completely oblivious to the glitch. After her friends alerted her about it, she was as stumped as Benson was.

Both of them tried different methods to get past the glitch and fix the problem. However, neither of them had entered any login information and had no idea how to undo the error.

The answer came in one simple but significant action: friend request.

Zendler sent Benson a friend request. Through that, Benson was able to log out of her account.

"She's admitted that she intended to delete me a few days later, but it turns out we had a lot in common," he continued.

Whatever common ground they had, it was enough to last them years of exchanging messages. In June 2013, after four years, they decided to meet in person. In the fall of the same year Zendler moved from Colorado to be with Benson in Arkansas.

Around a year later, they were engaged and together moved to South Carolina.

The couple got married last June 21.

"I found my partner, my best friend, my great love via a simple glitch in social media. There are awful things in this world, but sometimes there's beauty, too. This is my beauty," Benson ended.

It won't be too surprising if a movie is made about this "match made in Facebook heaven."

Either way, this couple's story, admit it or not, has somehow gotten your faith in the Internet restored.
