6 Love Stories So Cheesy You Won't Believe They're True

Valentine's Day is this Friday! So, I took to social media and asked my friends and followers to send me their most mushy, cheesy, and corny love stories. Here are six of the best romantic tales I heard!

The Prom Promise

“My parents met in high school. My dad kept hitting on my mom and she wasn’t interested, but when his prom date got sick she called him. At the end of the night, he kissed her against her garage door and they’ve been together ever since.”

Stay, Stay, Stay

“I met my current boyfriend right after the darkest time of my life. I had just moved after my father passed away from cancer and I was honestly feeling quite hopeless, thinking I wouldn't know anyone in the area at all. It got to the point where I joined Bumble and stated in my bio that I was just looking for friends. He popped up in my matches and I immediately made conversation with him about how we had the same taste in music. I remember the first night I went to meet him at his apartment, we immediately got along. It got late and we were sitting in his bed and I just kinda joked around like, 'Eh I'm not gonna go home... Imma stay.' He told me he never wanted me to leave anyway. He just wanted me to stay there forever. Flash forward to almost 7 months later and I've never loved anyone more. For the first time, I've been able to look at my past and feel like there's a reason why I survived it all.”

The Ole Instagram Hack

“The first day I met Adam, I was not even looking for a boyfriend. I had recently gotten out of an abusive relationship and completely hated the thought of being with anybody any time soon. Luckily, I changed my mind after realizing I had been looking for a guy like him from day one. I was at school with my friends making flashcards for an upcoming chemistry test using colorful markers when I noticed somebody looking at me from the corner of my eye. My first thought was “Ughhh, not now!” But then he asked me what the colorful markers were for. It was quite an unusual way to approach a girl but I fancied it. We ended up talking for a straight hour about music and our mutual love for cars. Not only did we have a lot in common, but I realized he wasn’t all pushy like most guys tend to be. He is a musician and I remember messaging him on Instagram to just compliment him which led to me giving him my number because 'Instagram drained my battery'. The next day he asked me if I would like to get coffee with him. I accepted the offer but ended up getting too nervous and saying that I couldn’t make it. Being the persistent man that he is, he asked if tomorrow would be better. I said yes and the next day he picked me up from my house and we went to his local coffee shop and had a two-hour conversation. That was the point when I realized that he is somebody that I would want to spend the rest of my life with, and to this day I still feel the same way.”

The Greatest Generation

“My Dee (my granddad) and Nana (my grandmother) knew each other their whole lives and started dating in high school. During that time, boys and girls were not allowed to walk up and down the same staircase. Dee wasn’t going to let that stop him from seeing my Nana during class change, so he decided to become a hall monitor just to be able to see her for a few extra minutes each day. They went on to go to the same college, the College of Charleston! They have been together for 65 years. Dee passed away almost a year and a half ago and Nana misses him very much. Their love story is pretty great and I just wanted to share that adorable story!”

“One time, I went to the store for a nice bag of chips. Instead, I saw chocolate candy corn that was on sale, and I wanted to know if it tasted the same as it did last year. I bought it instead of the chips and ate a couple of pieces. That day I remembered why I don’t like the chocolate candy corn but I also remembered why I loved normal candy corn. It still does taste the same every year.”

Spanish Class Sweethearts

“I was in Spanish with him when I was a junior in high school and he was a sophomore. We were partners on a test review sheet and later that day we went to Dave and Buster's on a school trip. We hung out with each other for the majority of that day. We became friends and slow-danced at winter formal together. On the last day of the semester, we started texting and never stopped. About three weeks later, we went on our first date. He promposed to me, and a week after that, we officially became a couple. Our 2nd anniversary is on February 22nd.”
