Skeptics say that “Love is a myth.” But all of their arguments are worth nothing compared to the love stories of real people that we’ve collected for you to read here.
Today, smartzune.com will try to restore your faith in love with these 11 moving stories.
- Since hearing my parents story, I think now I know that true love is real. Long ago, my mom was going to go to another city to study and was packing. My dad was so sad all he could do was follow her everywhere. Mom asked: “When I die, how will you live?” My dad said, “I won’t, I will lie beside you”.
- For as long as I can remember, my grandmother always had salami in the fridge. When she and my grandfather celebrated their 40th anniversary, she finally told him that she hated salami and only bought it because he likes it. At that moment my grandfather confessed that he had hated it his entire life and only eaten it because he had been afraid of offending her.
- I was exhausted. It was after midnight. I changed my clothes, washed my face, and went to bed right away. In the morning, my husband was laughing and telling me that he was hitting on me and in my sleep I told him, “Do you love me or are you just hitting on me?” He said, “I love you”. And then, my sleeping mind cooled him down: “To love someone is to let them sleep”.
- I love different things that are made with patchwork, like quilts and hand-made toys. Recently, I noticed that my boyfriend’s fingers were covered with small cuts. When I asked him what caused them, he avoided answering me and said it was nothing. When I came home yesterday, I saw a huge heart, made of hundreds of pieces of different colored cloth. It wasn’t perfect but when I imagined how he spent hours making this thing for me, hand sewing (which he doesn’t even know how to do), I realized that this was the best present I’ve ever gotten in my life.
- I live in a dorm. A while ago in the middle of winter, a heater in my room broke and it was freezing. I called my boyfriend and told him what happened. After talking to him, I wrapped myself in the warmest blanket I had and started studying. An hour later, he called me: “Come outside. I bought you a heater. Your place must be freezing right now.” This was when I realized that love was not about calling eachother “baby,” “honey,” or other stuff like that. True love is buying a heater for the person you love and not letting them freeze.
- A few years ago, my husband and I went through a really rough time. We both lost our jobs and we only had enough money for the simplest and cheapest food. And, of course, the only pair of shoes I had were damaged. I cried and was ready to spend the entire winter in broken shoes. The next day, my husband came home with a pair of brand new leather shoes for me. A few weeks later, I realized that he had to sell the only thing he had left from his father — his watch. Now we are doing fine financially, and a short while ago, I managed to find his watch through a special website. Now I have it hidden in a drawer and plan to give it to him for his birthday.
