It鈥檚 prom season, y鈥檃ll. While we鈥檙e all doing overtime at the gym in preparation for that upcoming summer vacay, the teenage generation is currently curating the perfect promposals and finding that one dress that鈥檒l set them apart from the crowd (like this DIYed Beyonc茅 prom masterpiece). The classic high school event was just as much a right of passage for Maryland-based seniors Myren (@myrenthapimp) and his boyfriend Ralph (@omgitsralph) as everyone else, except for one thing: Myren鈥檚 parents wouldn鈥檛 allow him to go. So, the couple went ahead and pulled a classic teenager move and went behind their parents鈥 backs. To amazing results.

The Internet鈥檚 support for Myren was sparked by the photo posted above of him and Ralph dressed to the nines and ready to hit the town 鈥 er, prom. Since he posted on Twitter on Saturday Myren鈥檚 photo has received 20,000+ retweets and over 45,000 favorites. He has received super encouraging messages like, 鈥淎s a dad, I can say that I hope my kids grow up to be as strong and true as you,鈥 and 鈥淟ook at that! Only in high school and already wiser and more mature than your parents.鈥

Because Myren and Ralph鈥檚 story has become such a viral sensation, you鈥檇 think he would have been caught by now. But apparently, he鈥檚 still in the clear. Yesterday he took to Twitter yet again to provide an update on the prom saga.

Myren also spoke to BuzzFeed News and explained, 鈥淢y dad said I knew better than to ask him. I knew I wouldn鈥檛 get a yes from them, but I thought maybe they would have a change of heart. They never did.鈥 He went on to say, 鈥淢y parents won鈥檛 let me see him [鈥 It鈥檚 like I鈥檓 already living on punishment, so what do I have to lose by going to prom?鈥

As a coincidental bonus, prom also happened to fall on the couple鈥檚 seven month anniversary. Myren and Ralph, you two keep being the inspiring ballers you are.
