Jesse Cottle and his wife Kelly recently posted what they believed to be an everyday photo of themselves to Facebook:

The San Diego residents were posing with family members for some beach-based pictures when Cottle took off off his prosthetic legs and jumped on Kelly's back so she could carry him in to the water.

Jesse, a former Marine, lost both his legs after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan in 2009 and this is a simply how he has to move around sometimes.

He and Kelly met while he was recovering and they got married last year.

And they thought little of the above image when putting it online... only to watch the hits and comments continue to climb on an hourly basis.

"Everything just kept skyrocketing," Jesse told 10 News of the social media reaction. "And we were just astounded."

Dating is hard, you guys! Just ask Taylor Swift! She could write a master class in how NOT to date by this point. And probably a song or 12, too! 

Hollywood relationships fall apart as quickly as they come together, and the truth is that real life isn't much different for many teens and twentysomethings.

So what are they "rules" of dating these days? Are there any rules anymore, unwritten or otherwise? Not that we can tell, but we've observed some definite trends.

We're not saying you should do these things - don't yell at us if your booty call doesn't progress to friends with benefits, okay? - but they are increasingly common.

To illustrate the modern romantic landscape, here are the nine stages of dating in this modern, technology-driven, endlessly confusing hook-up era:

The One Night Stand
So, you had a one night stand. You think it was great. Wasn't it great? Hey, you have a phone number. Maybe another encounter will answer your question.

Kyle Jones is a 31-year old resident of August, Georgia.

He has an active dating life, seeking out mates online and in bookstores and often taking them home to meet his mother.

Pretty typical, right? Except that his main girlfriend is 91 years old.

"Everyone's brain is wired differently," Jones explains to The Daily Mail. "Some guys prefer blondes, some brunettes, some like other guys - I like old ladies."

Does he ever!

Jones says he often dates five women at once, adding that the "average age I go for is between 60 and 80."

For the record, we don't know if Kourtney Kardashian is actually pregnant with her third child. It's just a rumor at the moment.

But we do almost definitely know how Kourtney and Scott Disick will present this news to the world, if it ends up being true:

Via a tabloid cover story for which they're paid a very handsome sum.

And to which we say: BOOOO! That's no fun at all.

What is fun if you're an expecting couple? Mocking your wife's morning sickness, of course. Or creating your own movie-style billboard.

Herewith, THG presents 11 creative couples who turned a miraculous moment into an LOL moment:

We're Pregnant!
This guy seems a little more excited about his impending baby than his wife does. We wonder why.

Let the following exchange be a lesson to all women out there: Never cheat on a guy with his best friend.

And definitely never cheat on a guy with his best friend and then try to reconcile with him online, especially not when he's an expert meme user.

He seems mighty proud of the way he shot down his ex-girlfriend via text... as well he should be!

A woman cries over Batman in the following video.

And, no, it's not because Ben Affleck has landed that role.

In one of the most elaborate (and, we'll admit it, head-scratching) proposals you'll ever see, a woman is led out of a coffee shop by someone dressed as Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

She then watches a flash mob perform to Bruno Mars’ “Treasure" before her costumed boyfriend emerges from group of superheroes (including Wolverine, Spider-Man and Captain America) and gets down on one knee.

Who knew Batman carried an engagement ring in his utility belt?!? Watch now:

Sorry, fiances and husbands around the world. Your proposal totally sucks when compared to that of Jack Hyer.

Yes, even yours, Kanye West.

In the following video, Hyer says he knew he would marry Becca Strellnauer after the couple’s first date in 2010.

So Hyer started to put together a proposal immediately, filming himself lip-syncing to The Proclaimer's "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" everywhere he traveled - and he traveled A LOT.

From Tanzania to Jerusalem to Thailand to Turkey, Hyer made his feelings known.

On the night of the couple's graduation from the University of Montana, Jack told Becca he was going to show her a graduation slideshow... but cued this up instead. Watch the footage and then watch her reaction at the end now:

Your move, future fiances.

It pays to be a movie critic.

Not necessarily in very big bucks, but in some rather awesome connections.

And Joe Michalczuk recently leveraged these connections in a pretty cool way, using a number of junkets to ask many A-Listers to send some best wishes his fiancee’s way.

In the following video, everyone from Hugh Jackman to Kate Upton offers up their congratulations to Joe and wife-to-be Jenny, with Anne Hathaway and Kate Winslet earning points by quoting a couple famous roles.

Also of note: Samuel L. Jackson joking that he’s Laurence Fishburne and Arnold Schwarzenegger botching his line like he's Kendall Jenner...

Sometimes, the worst laid plans turn out the best.

Earlier this month, Elan Spreiser planned to propose to Koren Lockwood on the observation deck at the top of Rockefeller Center. But rain nixed both that plan and his back-up: popping the question on a horse-and-buggy ride.

So while walking near Central Park, Spreiser simply dropped suddenly to a knee and asked for Lockwood's hand in marriage.

She said yes… and a stranger named Jeannae Zuloag just happened to be standing there to capture the moment on camera.

“I immediately was like, ‘They need pictures of this moment, they’re going to want pictures,’" Zuloaga told Today. "I think it was just a magical kind of happenstance."

Are you familiar with the growing trend of #TransformationTuesday?

It’s a growing trend on Instagram where users publish before-and-after shots of important events in their lives, depicting all the weight they’ve lost after a run of weeks at the gym, for instance.

Or, in the case of some schmo named "cjkarl11" online, it's a chance to dump your girlfriend in the most passive aggressive way known to man.

Seriously, if you think your breakup sucked, imagine being this girl:

#TransformationTuesday Breakup
Ouch. This is not the way you want #TransformationTuesday to go. Not at all.

Hang in there, syd_ross. There are MUCH better fish in the sea.
