It’s a tale of modern love! After lots of cute flirting on Twitter and Instagram, the NBA and Nickelodeon stars finally met in real life. They look adorable together!
Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond, 20, and iCarly and Sam & Cat actress and singer Jennette McCurdy, 21, met after wooing her several times via social media — who ever said that you can’t meet anyone online?

Sometimes, a phone call just won’t do in this digital age, even if do you play for the NBA. Andre posted a picture of Jennette on Instagram on July 17, with the hashtag #WCW, standing for “Woman Crush Wednesday.” He posted two more #WCW pics of Jennette in the weeks after, and then she eventually followed him back on Twitter. “nice to meet you! ;)” she tweeted. He tweeted back “very nice meeting you as well.”
She then expressed that she wanted to go one of his games and Instagrammed a few pictures of birthday wishes for Andre and her wearing a Pistons sweatshirt.

On Aug. 30, the pair excitedly met for the first time, and documented their meeting on — where else? — Twitter and Instagram. They’ve also hung out since then looking happy and having fun — and even went to Disneyland together!
Lesson learned, Andre. To successfully get a girl interested in you, you might need to Instagram good photos of her — and writing a flattering hashtag never hurt. We hope these cute lovebirds keep hanging out!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? If you were Jenette, would you be flattered by being pursued via social media?
