For a date, we went shooting at a range. I knew he was special because I worried about looking silly with a gun.

“Runaway Train”

best of sweet

On our second date we took in a Soul Asylum show at First Avenue in Minneapolis. He bought us beer with his fake ID. As we stood there immersed in the music, mouthing the words to every song and doing that weird head-bob thing, we’d look at one another, lock eyes and smile. I knew it was a life-defining relationship.

—Kay

Postscript: I surprised him by planting a good, hard kiss on him after the show. We dated long-distance for a little more than three years. At 22, our lives went different directions. My heart still melts when I hear 90s alternative rock.

“The fight”

best of super

It had been a long 3 hours and the fight seemed as though it were going to never end. I was convinced this relationship was ending and that he was just going to break up with me. As he grew angrier, he told me that he was going to leave. Before he stormed, out he came up to me, kissed me hard and told me he loved me. Even at my worst, he never gave up on me.

—D

Postscript: We are now over a year into our relationship, and I am falling harder and harder with each passing moment.

He told me his favorite pizza was thin crust sausage with mushrooms. That’s my favorite too.

“Love in a Crockpot”

best of sweet

We were opening Christmas presents. Knowing how much I love to cook, he thoughtfully got me a crock pot I had been eyeing for a couple months. Although it was a very sweet sentiment, I found it a little odd that he would get me a crock pot for Christmas, until he suggested we open it to make sure it was the size I had wanted, and I discovered the necklace he had hidden inside.

Postscript: A year and half and going strong, he is my match in every way and I haven’t taken my necklace off since! I even make him a nice meal in my crock pot every once in a while!

“Best friend”

sweet

My best guy friend was in “love” with my best girlfriend, who treated him like sh*t. I was always telling him he deserved better. Eventually she pissed off, and me and him got closer. But I was still dating other people because I wasn’t sure how he felt, so I went on vacation to see my then-boyfriend. I spent the entire time talking to my best guy friend online while my boyfriend worked graveyard shifts and snorted cocaine. Needless to say, we broke up. I came back home and boom! Me and my best friend became completely inseparable. It took us a month to fall completely head over heels in love. We moved in together after three months and that’s how its been ever since.

—Ashley

Postscript: He’s my best friend, my lover and my soul mate. After 5 years of dating a**holes, I found my other half.

“Bar Hopping”

surprising

While at a popular bar, my friend ran into two guys she knew in high school. One of them started talking to me and offered to buy me a drink. Both his group of friends and my friends spent the rest of the night bar hopping. We had so much fun, laughing, drinking, making fun of our drunk friends, dancing, and simply hanging out. The next day we texted each other all day and I ended up meeting up with him at his place to celebrate his friend’s birthday. When we finally had a formal first date, he took me to a nice restaurant and we walked along the coast just talking about random stuff. I knew then I would marry him.

—Mary

Postscript: Two months after we met, we were engaged and two years after that, we were married. We have been married for about a year and half and I can’t see myself with anyone else.
