Everyone loves a good meet cute, but we usually see them in the movies — you know, like the two lovers who meet by accidentally running into each other in a crowded airport and apologize profusely when the impact knocks everything out of their hands. Things like that can’t happen in real life, right?
Do meet cutes actually happen in real life? I wonder if theres sb here who bumped into their future wife on the street, spilled coffee over a cute stranger, dated their delivery man 🤔
Wrong. Apparently meet cutes are a real thing, and they’re just as cute irl as they are in movies and TV shows. Twitter user @bookavid asked her followers for their meet cute stories and honestly, they’re all so surreal they’ll make you believe in fate.
I mentioned to a friend that I thought the guy in the cubicle next to her was cute. Two nights later, she woke me up by throwing rocks at my window. He was with her when I opened the door. They made me get dressed and go to a Halloween party. We've been married since 2009.
4. She took their wedding photos the day after they met
I fell in love at first sight with a boy in my HS freshman class. The next day i came back to school with a disposable camera and asked him for a picture. I still have it. He's giving me a look like, "Why do you want my picture?" I displayed it at our wedding. https://t.co/ytsIIOa2sl
We got paired up for an orientation icebreaker first week of college and hopped on one foot together for like, a minute. Started dating three weeks later, and now it's been… two years? https://t.co/N9oZT4dPga
My parents met in a ballroom dancing class in the 80s. They were practice partners and my dad drove my mom to and from class bc she lived a little far. 😂 https://t.co/9v1VjCvqlm

8. She yelled at her husband the first time she met him
Apparently my first interaction with my husband was yelling at him about a band room door and he decided “yes this is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with” 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ https://t.co/afhb6CMXgd
saw him across the gym. i was a freshmen, he was a sophomore. a few weeks later, his friend asked me for my number "for a friend." i requested he give me a dollar so i could get a cookie. he called and we started eating lunch together and now we've been together 12 years https://t.co/eBqg0iOjQ8
For my first skydive, I requested to jump with "anyone but That Guy" – the wild guy who seemed more like a Mountain Dew ad than a person. I was paired with him anyway. Still leaping into things 14 years later. https://t.co/Ki8cLvz34n
14. They sat next to each other on a Christmas Eve flight
I met a guy on a late night Christmas Eve flight. We were seated next to each other. We got dinner during our layover, and I gave him my number before we parted ways on different 2nd flights. We dated for 2 years, but it’s still a hell of a story. https://t.co/sLItR947mL
I signed up to be a subject for a sleep study in grad school. This very nice guy was assigned the same night; we spent three consecutive Sat nights having our sleep studied. (No, we didn't sleep in the same bed, jeez.) Netted $200, a free mattress, and a husband. https://t.co/VdrAODB78O
I LOVE MY PARENTS MEET CUTE AHHHH They were both attending a ball at this country club, and my dad got my mum confused with someone he knew that had the same name as my mum. They started chatting bc my dad had approached her and ended up dancing together until the place closed 😭 https://t.co/xdhENK5lzw
1/2 I've had several! One bf was a pax I flirted w just to make him less unhappy abt getting an extra body search before a flight (after 9/11). One was a waiter in Mexico who put flowers on my plate to tell me he liked me. https://t.co/atHw0QPA6p
My husband and I made eye contact in a crowd of people at college orientation. I smiled at him, he held the door open for me a few minutes later. Our first conversation was comparing AP test scores. It's been 11.5 years since then, and we've been married for six!
Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.
“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla
