A guy named Mark Kowalczyk was casually browsing through the dating app Tinder when he spotted a girl that caught his eye – for more reason than one. The photo she had featured on her profile showed her taking a selfie in a bathroom, but not just any bathroom. Mark’s bathroom.
It’s like something from the Twilight Zone.
“I was like, ‘Oh my god, that’s my bathroom!” Mark told Buzzfeed, and when he shared the image to social media, it rapidly went viral with other people reacting in much the same manner, as well as a few hoping that he had swiped right to try and solve the mystery.

@m_d_k_34 I’m hoping you swiped right and figured this out?

The mystery has in fact been solved, and the explanation is pretty logical, although still an incredible coincidence. Despite the two never having met, they do have a bunch of mutual friends, and Jenna – the girl in the photo – had been to a party at Mark’s. Their paths just never crossed.
“I assumed that since we had a couple parties before, it must have been from one of those nights,” said Mark.
Jenna confirmed this:
“When I went into the bathroom, I felt the need to take a mirror picture and posted it later.”
In response to Mark’s tweet regarding the mystery scenario which has received a staggering 52,000 likes and over 14,000 retweets, Jenna posted another photo of her in his house that very same night.

And after all that, do the pair plan on hooking up? Apparently so.
This could be the greatest modern love story of all time.
