Sophomores at Texas State University Hailey Thomas, 19, and Westin McMakin, 20, have been dating for four years. Here's one of their earliest photos together, which was taken in high school. Hailey told BuzzFeed News that the pair have "a lot of fun together."

For their four-year anniversary, the two of them went out to dinner, Hailey said. The college student also posted a photo on Instagram to celebrate. She captioned the photo: "I guess you could say weโ€™ve been dating FOURever๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’• #happyanniversary."

"You miss every shot you don't take," @BothEyesO_Open tweeted.

"At this dudes rate he's going to miss every shot he does take," @ItsDestello responded.

"Shooters shoot," @kvmvrv512 said.

As did many others...

Hailey called the pun in the response to her photo "funny." She also said that she was a tad stunned by it. "I was a little bit shocked that someone would be so bold. I was like, 'Am I reading this right?'" she said.

The teen explained that she alerted her boyfriend, who "doesnโ€™t really use a lot of social media," to the comment in person. She said that the two of them laughed about it.

Westin told BuzzFeed News that, like Hailey, he found the comment hilarious. โ€œI honestly thought it was pretty funny," the college student said.

He added that the strategy was unlikely to prove successful. โ€œOdds are you're not going to get anywhere with it, especially not on an Instagram anniversary post," Westin said of the comment.

So, does Hailey agree that "it's time FOUR a change"? "No. Iโ€™m not planning on going for a change anytime soon," Hailey said.

"Iโ€™m glad she said that," Westin said in response to Hailey's answer to the question. "Iโ€™d be a little upset if she said something else."
