This couple has grown a large following on social media. People saw and liked their photos all the time. However, when one of their photos went viral, they had no idea why. Until they took a closer look, that is.
Dan Hennessey and Wendy Joseph were just your ordinary couple before they became major social media stars. They met while they were in college back in 2006 and social media has a large part in their relationship.
When Dan was a sophomore in college studying exercise science, he signed up for Facebook. While it was still a new website, there weren’t too many people signed up yet. Wendy was still in high school and was 17 years old at the time and planned to study public health in college.
Dan wanted to make some new friends using his new account on Facebook. He discovered Daphne’s profile and sent her a message. Though she never replied, he saw that she was friends with a girl named Wendy. After checking out Wendy’s profile, he knew he wanted to get to know her.
Wendy spoke to Daphne about Dan’s message. She informed Wendy that he had messaged her too. Wendy never responded, but Dan was persistent. Finally she messaged him back. After talking for a little while, he invited her and some friends to a party.
Thinking that Wendy would refuse his invitation, Dan never actually planned a party. When she accepted, he had to throw together a party. Dan and Wendy met for the first time at the party and hit it off instantly. She even stayed after all the guests left.
The two decided to just be friends at first since Wendy had just broken up with a longtime boyfriend and Dan was enjoying college life. After six months of being friends, they decided to date and were together for seven years.
Wendy decided that she had to break up with Dan. She felt like they had lost themselves in each other because they got together so young. Wendy started her own YouTube channel where she filmed beauty and hair tutorials. This hobby brought her back to Dan and they started their relationship again.
Wendy featured Dan in her videos and her followers just loved him! They both started Instagram accounts and would give relationship advice and talk about their lives with their followers.
For the couple’s 10 year anniversary, Wendy posted a side-by-side picture of the two of them. The picture received over 60,000 likes and was featured in news articles such in The Sun and Daily Mail. The couple couldn’t figure out why the photo went viral.
If you take a closer look at the photo, the couple looks younger in the latest picture compared to the older picture. “Do you both age in reverse?” one commenter wrote. “What fountain of youth are you drinking from?” asked another.
Wendy and Dan both love health and fitness. Soon, Wendy switched her YouTube channel from beauty to health, fitness, and nutrition.
Their channel, True4You, on YouTube offers nutrition advice and fitness videos to their followers. They still make sure to keep followers updated on their relationship.
While Wendy and Dan were in Paris in September 2016, they had a major announcement. Dan romantically proposed to Wendy at the Eiffel Tower. Could you love them anymore?
The couple realized they also had a love for traveling. They decided to travel for months at a time and have visited Columbia, Thailand, Panama, and Costa Rica.
