‘I was enchanted to meet you’ — Taylor Swift-inspired trend shows Gen Z couples then vs. now

This Taylor Swift sound bite is giving Gen Zers a new reason to share their adorable love stories.

Many Gen Zers are hopping on the “I was enchanted to meet you” trend. As Swift’s song “Enchanted,” from her third studio album “Speak Now” begins to play, viewers see an image or a video clip of the TikTok user before their relationship. Afterward, a romantic recent video shows them and their partner happy in love.

TikToker Kylie (@jamesmendezfiancee) posted her response to the trend. Kylie’s video has received more than 1.8 million views.

We see a photo of Kylie and her eventual fiancé when they were kids, followed by their ultra-romantic engagement at The Rockefeller Center in New York City.
