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.

I met him while I was still dating someone else (a loser). Within a week he had already told me he loved me and if I gave him a chance he’d do everything he could to make me happy. Of course I thought he was full of crap. Nobody falls in love within a week, right? Wrong. He meant it.
At the time, I was tired of men and wanted to dump the other guy and just be single. But there was just something about him. I didn’t make it easy for him, but he was very patient and didn’t press me to do or say anything I wasn’t ready for. It took awhile for me to let my guard down but I’m so happy I did. He completely has my heart.
Postscript: When my father died, he quit his job to move across the country with me to help take care of my Mom. I think God sent me an angel. We’ve been together for 3 years.

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.

He told me he would move to be with me when I couldn’t cope on my own anymore.
Postscript: One year, two months we’re going strong

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!
