So, everyone knows the way to a woman’s heart is through her Pinterest boards, right? They basically act as a window into our innermost wants and desires – even if they are just full of quirky cushions and expensive kitchenware. If anyone is ever looking to buy us a gift (hint, hint), all they really have to do is take a quick scroll and pick the first scented candle that crosses their screen – simples!
Well, one man who figured out this genius hack years ago has been dubbed the “smartest man alive” by thousands of people who are only raging they didn’t think of it first. Meet Jordan and TyAnna.The couple have been happily married since March this year, but Jordan admitted he’d been chasing his now-wife for three years before they actually got together.”I had been trying to convince TyAnna to let me take her on a proper date,” he told BuzzFeed News.
“She finally said yes for Valentine’s Day our senior year.” When TyAnna finally agreed to a date with Jordan, he began searching for the perfect gift to win her over with.
After becoming frustrated with his lack of suitable ideas, a mutual friend suggested that he take a look at her Pinterest page for inspiration. Deciding it was worth a sh-ot, Jordan created an account and began quietly following TyAnna’s account for gift ideas throughout their relationship. “She’s picky and she likes things that tend to be small or handmade … so I like to get things right the first time,” he said.
Over the years, he said he’s gifted her “a sapphire nose ring, lip glosses, and earrings” inspired by her Pinterest pins. Until recently, he had managed to keep this clever little hack to himself, but when Deray McKesson recently tweeted to ask if anyone still used the site, Jordan just had to share this nugget of information with the world. Of course, TyAnna now knows about Jordan’s secret account, but she says she actually wasn’t surprised at all. “I thought it was really really sweet but I wasn’t surprised because Jordan really goes the extra mile to make me happy,” she said.
This is how people reacted to this post:
Greg – Ours isn’t so secret. I have a board specifically titled, “Patrick, these are hints.” He buys me gifts from it all the time and it’s awesome!
Hayley – My husband and I set up private wish list boards on Pinterest that only we can see and then we have plenty of ideas for what to get each other.
Rianne – This is love too. Love that he/she goes to great lengths to put a smile on her face. True love…it really does mean sacrifice. There is a person in my life, that i would do just abt anything to see them happy. And not in the weird enabling way. There is NOTHING like truly loving someone that ur willing (because it brings u joy), to do whatever it takes to just love them unconditionally. It’s not easy…but when ur doing it…you can sense it’s honest and real. True intimacy.
Lynn – At the age of 40, I stopped accepting gifts….just time spent with the person. I am now 63 and have many memories and less stuff. I could not be happier!
Delphine – I created a board named “Stuff I want” so my bf would have ideas to buy me stuff online for Christmas hahaha.
Told him to check the said board if ever he needed to.
