As I came through the international gate, there he was standing looking as sexy and fabulous as ever. He picked me up, held me tight, and kissed me with such passion and love for the next 10 minutes. It felt like an eternity of love in that 10 minutes. Its a moment I will never forget - it was the moment I knew our love was real. It was romantic, invigorating and the best kiss a girl could ever dream of." - kittykatz1977 " Not any one occasion stands out but many. He was always doing things for me. A flower for no reason , or a chocolate bar or any number of small unexpectedly welcome things." - cookie3 " He knew I loved chocolate chip cookies so he baked me some. It took him 3 batches to get them right!" - Lee " I knew my girlfriend was the one for me after we got put together in a group for our university marketing course. After working together for months on one giant project, you really get to know someone, especially when that someone happens to be beautiful and shares a ton of the same interests as you. It was in that time that I built up the courage to ask her out on our first date. Four years have passed since then and it is not an exaggeration to say that I love her more with each passing day." - Michael "Michael and I met online June 2010. We have been together ever since. He is gentle and understanding. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder several years ago. He has helped me achieve goals that I thought were unattainable. He lost his Mother a few months before we met. On our first date, he brought me wildflowers from his Mother's garden and asked if he could kiss me. His first email to me was as poetic as Mr. Wentworth's letter to Anne in 'Persuasion'. He really did have me at 'Hello'." - Teresa " After being in labor for nearly 30 hours, feeling exhausted, gross from not showering for over a day nor being able to brush my teeth, etc... My husband told me I was the most beautiful vision he'd ever seen. That's love!!" - Christine " During my second year of university, the stress took over and I came down with a very nasty cold during midterms that left me exhausted and without a voice. My boyfriend bought me tulips from the grocery store that were a beautiful and cheery red and yellow. It's the little things that mean the most. PS I saved the bulbs and planted them in the garden so I can be reminded of our love every spring." - Carlene "My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 9 years. January 17th of this year our adopted son was born and we were able to watch the delivery that morning. That night we went to our favorite restaurant and talked about how our lives had changed forever and how lucky we were. I don't think you could imagine how something like this could make even more in love at that moment." - Sharon
