23 Men And Women Share Their Most Inspirational Love Story (That Really Happened)

17. Fleeting, But A Very Happy Period In My Life

She was a close friend for years but nothing romantic had ever really happened. I hadn’t seen her in a while and caught up with her at a friend’s birthday. I’m not sure what it was, but something was different about her and I just couldn’t help but smile the whole time I was around her. Skip ahead a month or so and we ended up going out with a few friends and at about 2am everyone came back to mine to crash. I stayed up talking to her for the entire night and we eventually kissed. She left the country to study and I waited for the better part of a year for her to get back. For a very happy period of my life I got to call her my girlfriend.

This was a few years ago and unfortunately, since last year, we don’t speak to each other any more because of how it ended. Not exactly a happy ending but that’s my love story.


18. Ain’t Love Grand

I was drunkenly pushed into a spa and landed on his head, knocking him out cold. I was probably more concerned about my vodka cruiser getting spa water in it than his head at the time. For some reason he apologized to me for the incident (possibly concussed) which set off a chain of events that he probably has regretted every day for the last 10 years he has been stuck with me. Ain’t love grand.


19. It Took Time But I Love Him More Than I Could Ever Imagine

I had just lost my job, broke up with my ex and was in debt up to my eyeballs. For about 3 months I was convinced I would never find anyone to love and cherish. Then one night my friend (kind of a weird really close friendship/fuck buddy deal) insisted that I get out of my apartment and come with him to his best friend’s boat. His best friend and I hit it off perfectly, and we started working on his boat together. There were many days where him and I were covered in grease and paint with beers in our hands, working on getting the boat ready for the season. After about three weeks of palling around together, he asked if I was willing to consider more…. After explaining how much of a basket case I am, he shut me up by leaning in and kissing me(the whole nine yards- dipping me and everything). It took a month to realize I love him more than I could ever imagine. He proposed to me Saturday night, surrounded by our friends and family at sunset… Of course on the boat, where it all started. I couldn’t be happier and more excited about the future. I’m going to spend the rest of my life with my best friend.
