Reddit has a sub-community (or, um, sub-Reddit) for just about everything, and two of the most touching are r/wemetonline and r/longdistance — support groups for people whose SO's are geographically unavailable. They're incredibly sincere support groups for people in difficult situations, and proof that not everyone on the internet is there to insult your band. Here are eight heartwarming pictures of devotion from the members of those groups. Your heart will grow three sizes this day — click the next image to advance.
