Everyone loves a good glo up.
If you're not familiar with the slang, a glo up is when someone grows up and grows out of their awkward phase. People often post photos of their personal glo ups to show how much cuter they look post-puberty. But earlier this week, the meaning of the phrase got an upgrade.
On Sunday, Twitter user Caitlin Crowley tweeted a pair of photos. On the left is Crowley with a former boyfriend or date, and on the right is her kissing her current girlfriend. "Freshman to senior year, does this count as a glo up???" she captioned the shots.
As one Twitterer pointed out, Crowley looks so much more comfortable with her current significant other.
I mean, can we talk about the awkward distance between Crowley and that boy?
And the clenched fist?
Not to mention, a ton of people responded to Crowley's original tweet to tell her how much they loved her glo up.
Her tweet promptly went viral, and a bunch of other queer women responded with equally adorable relationship glo ups of their own.
Some single women who have come out found creative ways to join in on the fun, sans a bae.
And some women who either don't have ex-boyfriends or don't have photos with their ex-boyfriends didn't let that stop them from posting single-to-taken glo ups.
Goddamn, that was all so cute.
