Sometimes when your significant other is not around and you miss them, you may put on something of theirs to remind you of them. Like a favorite shirt, or hat, or, you know, their used fake eyelashes.

Dallas-based Youtuber Nathan Ontiveros accidentally started a trend on May 2, when he tweeted a picture of himself wearing his girlfriend's fake eyelashes. (His girlfriend, coincidentally, is professional makeup YouTuber Brittney Kay Graza.) He didn't put them on over his eyes where they'd normally be worn, because, honestly, getting those things in place can be really difficult. He just put them on his cheeks, like little furry smiles.

Ontiveros accompanied the picture with the words, "When you miss your girl and her lashes are the only thing you have to remind you of her." Awwwww! That's so sweet…and weird. But okay!

Anyway, clearly Ontiveros wasn't the only one who felt this way, because soon other people on Twitter started tweeting pictures of themselves also wearing their partners' fake eyelashes.

Emailing with Daily Dot, Nathan Ontiveros explained that he took the picture after Garza asked if he'd seen her lashes around the house. He explained:

When I found them I took these pics thinking it would be funny to post. When I saw that people were tweeting pics with their partners’ lashes on their face, I was more happy than anything! It’s nice to see people having fun on Twitter and not being so serious all the time!

For her part, Garza told Daily Dot over email:

We have been together for a year, and yes, our relationship is extremely goofy and full of pranks and jokes. My boyfriend makes tons of parody videos, so every day it’s something new.

This is one joke that definitely resonated for a lot of folks.

This person apparently keeps a pair around for when the missing starts to set in. Nice and handy.

And then there's this guy, who's got other ideas about what to do with all his lady's eyelashes. Not as sentimental, but not a bad idea.
