If you saw a bunch of women marching around downtown Charleston today searching intently as if Ryan Gosling had been spotted well, it’s because Ryan Gosling was reportedly seen downtown.
RYAN GOSLING IS IN DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON. ME AND KATIE LITERALLY JUST CHANGED INTO DRESSES TO GO FIND HIM.

The rumor first hit about 8 p.m. Thursday night after two or three people tweeted that they saw him at Hall’s Chophouse. Since then, even without any photographic proof, seemingly every young woman in Charleston is determined to live her ‘The Notebook’ fantasy.
I told my boyfriend that I was going to hunt Ryan Gosling down and marry him and he didn't take it very well

I used Storify to document how the whole thing played out and, well, also because I think these tweets are hilarious. You can also see it below. By the way, if you do get a photo send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
