Today I'm sharing some real love stories from makesmethink.com that made me believe hard in true love, enjoy it!
1- Today, it’s been exactly 25 years since that evening at the shop when I answered the phone on my way out the door for the night, with no way of knowing that the potential customer on the other end would someday be my wife. MMT
2- Today, after dealing with my parent’s divorce and all the insanity that went along with it when I was a teenager, and then dealing two failed marriages with cheating husbands, I realized, as my husband and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, that what they say is true – true love is out there and worth the wait. MMT
3- Today, after spending 29 years being self-conscious of being a 6’1 tall woman, and thus being taller than most of the guys I've dated, I fell in love and married a guy in a wheelchair. And I've never felt more like myself. MMT
4- Today, ten years after we had a silly one-night stand at a high school graduation party in San Francisco, and two years after we randomly ran into each other at a business conference in Miami (after not seeing each other since the graduation party), I asked her to marry me in Chicago.

9- Today, after a phone conversation with my wife about love, I felt compelled to use Google to find and read some short stories about love.

When I got home from work, as I started telling her about my discovery, she hugged me and told me she had randomly Googled “short love stories” this morning too and found read the same stories, all by herself.

Since then I took a fairly substantial pay cut, but have had way more free time to spend with my wife and kids. Our relationship has honestly never been better." MMT

I could be blind and see the woman I love.” MMT
16- Today, an 82-year-old man hired me as a computer consultant for a 4-four training on basic computer applications, email, and web browsing.

Not all military love stories are tragic. Our positive outlook keeps me strong and MMT.
28- Today, my 40-year-old cousin is getting married for the first time. Sometimes, the perfect person just takes a little longer to find. Knowing that it is possible to find love at any age makes me happy and MMT.
29- Today was our anniversary. The truth is after many abusive relationships where I was broken down, I am starting to feel good enough to look in the mirror for the first time in ages. You make me feel beautiful and happy and worthwhile. The fact that for the fist time I'm actually sincerely happy in a relationship MMT.
30- Today, my boyfriend and I were eating out when an older couple stopped us. The man asked, "Are you married?" My boyfriend said "Not yet! We're working on it!" the man replied "You passed!" the lady said to me "You've got a good one." I agreed. She said, "We just like to see happy young couples. You look good together!" It's nice to know there are still positive people in the world, and also that there are older couples who still believe in love. MMT

34- Today, my dad handed me a bottle of Windex and a roll of paper towel as we got in the car. He turned to me and said, “I just talked to your mom while she was on her lunch break. She mentioned her windshield got covered in bugs on the drive to work. Since we’re going to drive right by her work anyway, I figured we’d clean them off for her. It's the little things, kiddo, which keeps love going.” By chance, while my dad was cleaning the windshield, my mom came out with her kids for recess. Her smile and seeing how in love my parents are MMT.
35- Today, I received this text message from my finance’: “I want this too. I want all of it. I want the pointless bickering, the long walks, the late night phone calls, the good morning texts. I want cute pictures with you, to hold your hand, to make food for you, to call you baby. The joking, the wrestling, the fights, the long ‘how I feel’ text messages on the days we aren’t on the same page. I want to be one of those inseparable best friend couples that people are like ‘you’re still together?’ That’s what I want. With you.” MMT
36- Today, four years after I lost my hearing after making a full recovery from Meningitis, my boyfriend of seven years asked me the four-word question every girl wants to hear. But I never imagined how perfect it would look as it did when he signed it to me. MMT
37- Today, it’s been a couple weeks since I got unexpectedly laid off two days before Christmas. Unemployment only pays me about 20% of what I've been making for the last five years. I had to move from a 1,500 sq ft apartment into a 400 sq ft studio to make ends meet. I’ve been really stressed out for many reasons, but mainly because my fiancé comes from a pretty wealthy family. I sometimes worry I don’t financially live up to her expectations. Tonight, she came to see me when she got off work. We were sitting on the couch and I asked her if she was comfortable. She immediately snuggled her head into my chest and said, “This, right here, always feels like home.” MMT
38- Today, it’s been ten years since my controlling, abusive ex-fiancé sold my favorite guitar which cost me $900 and took me ages to save for. He sold it on the day I dumped him. When I went to claim my things, he was proud that he had sold it to a pawn shop. Luckily, I managed to track down the guy that bought it from the pawn shop. The guy was really sweet, and gave it back to me for free, on the condition that I accompany him on his front porch for an hour and play guitar with him. He grabbed a second guitar and we ended up sitting there on his porch for the rest of the afternoon playing music, talking, and smiling. He’s been my husband for nine years now. MMT
39- Today, like he has for as long as I can remember, my dad got up at 5 AM to make a fresh pot of tea and breakfast for my mom before she left for work at 6 AM. He works from home and really doesn’t need to get up that early. But he does it because he says, “Seeing your mom smile in the morning is always one of the best parts of my day.” MMT
40- Today, I have an elderly patient who is suffering from a severe case of Alzheimer’s. He can barely remember his own name, and he often forgets where he is and what he said just a few minutes beforehand. But by the stretch of some miracle (perhaps the miracle of love), he remembers who his wife is every morning when she shows up to spend a few hours with him. He usually greets her by saying, “Hello my beautiful Kate.” MMT
