After a decade, OP and Shovel have one cat and a combined yakarma score of 15, Photo courtesy of ChrisGampat via Flickr creative commons. It has been well noted that this Tuesday is the 10 year anniversary of a couple who began with a hookup on Yik Yak. Shovel and OP, two lovely young adults from Charleston, met on the anonymous social media app, or should we call it a dating app now?

It all started when OP was lonely and wanted someone to cuddle. The story goes that OP ventured into the Yak during a boring time in her life when she wanted a little more to think about other than school and how lonely she was.
