Over a year’s time, my boss kept asking me for a date. I kept telling him that I would never date anyone who had power over my job. I heard through the grapevine that he had asked for a transfer to another department. When his boss asked him why he wanted to move, he said it was so I would go on a date with him.
Postscript: He transferred, I dated him then married him. Now, I’m his boss.

Me and my boyfriend of 1 year and 6 months were driving to pick up our friend. On the way there, someone almost ran into us—after which my boyfriend stuck his head out the window and started to yell and scream and cuss at the driver. I told him to calm down, that it was OK, his car was fine. But that’s not why he was worried. He told he he couldn’t live without me and he was mad because I could have died. I fell in love with him a billion times more because of it.
Postscript: He told me he loved me a long time before that, and I love him too…It’s been over 2 years now and I know we will be together forever and always.

We met while working together at a pizza place. I was working through college and he was working part-time to supplement his income. He told a friend that he liked me and so we began talking more and more. Finally, we went on a date and during the date he had mentioned how much he liked to read and some books that he enjoyed. I, an avid reader as well, had some books by that same author so I told him I would let him borrow them. After a few weeks, we continued talking and dating, he came to work (on a day he had off) and said he wanted to return the books and would just put them in my car. I handed him my keys and when I finished my shift I found the most beautiful rose and note.
Postscript: That was just the beginning of our story. We were married 4 years after this.

It was within the first couple weeks of knowing each other. He had a late, late night job. I woke up at 2:30 in the morning from a nightmare. I knew he’d be at work. I send him a text message telling him I just had a horrible nightmare. Expecting a text back, I was surprised when he actually called me to calm me down so I could go back to sleep. I felt protected and safe by the sound of his voice. I knew I loved him when he went the extra step and called me rather than just texting back and forth.
Postscript: He no longer works late nights and whenever I have a nightmare I just have to turn over and wake him up. I married that boy.

I was at the beginning of what felt to be the longest shift of my life. On my break, I called him to complain about how bad my day was going and that I could really go for a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. A few hours later, I went to the staff room for my lunch break and about 50 packs of Reese’s Pieces overflowed out of my locker. All the other employees were awkwardly staring, but I was glowing ear to ear.
Postscript: Turns out, all the sweet things he did for me were just to cover up years of his cheating ways. I’ve moved on now, couldn’t be happier.

After being friends for two years, he was there for me through a ridiculous break-up. I stayed with him for a couple days after that. One night not long afterward, we were listening to Nirvana, singing along and drinking red wine. Mid-song, he leaned down and kissed me.
Postscript: It’s been almost a year since then, we’re living together, just bought a car together and I’ve never been happier!

I was on MySpace looking for a friend of mine. I typed in his name and a bunch of people with the same name came up…of course. The picture on his MySpace looked a lot like it could possibly be my friend so I messaged him. Later that evening I received an email from him letting me know that he wasn’t the guy I was looking for. I replied back with an apology. So he messaged back asking me questions about myself and thought I was beautiful. So we wrote back and forth for a few days then we decided to exchange numbers. After 4 long months of texting and hours of talking on the phone we decided to meet. He came over to my place to watch a movie. Things went perfect! He was so respectful! We were sitting close and as I looked over at him to make a silly face… he leaned in to kissed me… we couldn’t stop. He held me so tight… I could feel his heart beat. I pulled myself away because I knew he was leaving for a few months and I didn’t want to get hurt.
I met another man while he was gone and I messed up. Married him 1.5 days after we met. Not the smartest thing. Even though I was married, the name I met on MySpace kept in touch as friends… emailing or texting secretly. Just to see if all was well. We always had this amazing connection and no matter if I deleted him off my MySpace or changed my number… some how we always found each other. My husband and I split and the moment he heard that we both wanted back into each other lives. 3.5 yrs later we remain great friends.
Just a few days ago I got a text from him saying “The stars are finally on our side baby!” I can honestly say I stopped breathing for a minute and had to reread the text 100 times. I knew I loved him when I read it for the 100th time and I felt the same as I did reading it the 1st time. I went to see him that night . . . things changed for us. We still aren’t ready… but things are amazing how they are! It’s been the best 3.5 yrs of my life getting to know this man! If this is what True Love feels like… im the luckiest girl in the world!
Postscript: We’ve never made love… but when we do… it will be amazing!
