From the wild to the beautifully ordinary, the Humans of New York Facebook page, run by Brandon Stanton, is known for highlighting characters on the streets of New York City. But a recent post stood out to us for the right reasons.

The photo features a couple who met on a dating site. The woman on the left told Stanton she sent her partner a message before they met saying: “I want to let you know up front that I’m in a wheelchair, because I can’t hide it.”

The woman’s response?

“Why? Is it bright yellow?”

We’re so happy they found each other.
