If you think that love or chivalry are dead, you are sorely mistaken.
But you gotta remember to personalize that shit! Bringing home flowers? Passé. A box of chocolates? Whitman’s can keep their money. Take a page from this guy’s romance book, and learn how it’s really done.
Ana Stanowick posted a photo to Twitter of her mom’s new boyfriend finishing a wall display to show off her mother’s mug collection, which, just from what we can see, consists of at least 51 glorious mugs!
my dad used to get so mad every time my mom would come home w a new coffee mug (she likes to collect them) and her new bf literally built her a wall to display her collection. this is why we don’t settle for loser boys, ladies!!!!! pic.twitter.com/BZQmfcVHuC

Stanowick tells Mashable that her mom started the collection when she received a frog mug for Christmas, but it broke under the tree before she could open it.
“Since then she just started collecting them. My dad has a very specific way he wanted things, and allll those mugs just didn’t really fit in his ideals I guess.”
“My dad used to get so mad every time my mom would come home w a new coffee mug,” Stanowick wrote on Twitter.
But according to Stanowick, her mom has been dating her boyfriend for three years, and they recently moved in together. “He had the idea to build the shelf as a surprise for her. She doesn’t have a favorite [mug], but each of them have sentimental value and she can name the time, place, and who gave her each mug.”
Twitter’s heart was filled with the hope that love, is in fact, real, and that you shouldn’t settle for anything less than a partner who will support your passions.

Given how often I see people get mocked for harmless little individual quirks and hobbies, it’s so nice to see someone getting supported in theirs

But everyone took a step back from all the lovey-dovey stuff for a second to talk about the real stars of this story — the novelty mugs. Especially the abundance of delightfully weird and wacky frogs in the collection. I mean, just look at all those absolute units!
This goes to show that you should always strive to be with someone who makes you hoppy.
