Inspired by a viral post, girls (and boys!) are sharing their coming-out 'glo ups'

This is the BEST.

In the below tweet, 17-year-old Caitlin Crowley appears on the left with a boy Dylan at a Freshman year dance, and then on the right with her current girlfriend Kirrin Chew, in a senior year photo.

She posted the pics to Twitter with the caption, "Freshman to senior year, does this count as a glo up???" and it quickly went viral, with almost 35,000 retweets and over 130,000 likes.

Caitlin told BuzzFeed she and Kirrin have only been "completely out of the closet" for six months, but they've been dating for a year now.

She said they've received an overwhelming "outpour of love" from friends and family (including Dylan; Caitlin is still friends with him! Aww!), and also from the internet.

Because of that, her post inspired a bunch of adorable copycats and I love the internet sometimes.

Yay love! Yay life! Yay to love and life and this is corny, but I might be crying?! OK, I'm definitely crying and I HAVE ZERO APOLOGIES TO GIVE.
