Don’t we all live for such cute stories? The thread did not disappoint us and just made us go awwww!

These little little incidents are so relatable and make one believe how it is actually the little things that matter and make life so special.
We hope they lead their life holding each-others hand.
On our first date when he asked for permission to hold my hand. We had just been to Costa for hot chocolate and were just walking around and he said “what would you do if someone was to tell you they’d really like to hold your hand” and my heart just melted. I just knew. ❤️ https://t.co/pyWaZmu3mn

Always heard, “it’s the company that matters.” Seems like same thing happened with this one here, the surrounding was irrelevant as the person next to her was all that mattered.
When he took me camping in a leaky old tent and I didn’t want to be anywhere else 💛 https://t.co/7FlJVvSCzN

Omg omg where’s that tissue at? It’s always the simple things, this proves it. Foolish are those who run after extravagant things.
Shortly after we got mugged and he was sitting in the hospital bed with a fractured jaw and a ‘exploded’ thumb I thought to myself ‘that’s it, he’s the one’ and here we are 10 years later 🙂 https://t.co/PDRjdhMTs8

Imagine, waking up one morning and realizing your entire life has changed and the man who was just a man the night before is THE man for you.

How considerate, are there desi men like this out there? The men here won’t even budge to clean their glasses lens.

Cuteness overload. He may not have catch ’em all but he caught the one. The one that actually held significance with her presence in his life.
He fell asleep on me whilst watching the Pokémon movie and never let go of my hand. https://t.co/0f7BIdKcjT

1st love is great but the 2nd one is greater; First one breaks your heart whereas the 2nd one mends your heart when you thought you’ll never be able to love again. Life surely is unpredictable.

Ah, sweet innocent love.
The first weekend I stayed at his. We were sat on opposite ends of the sofa and he was reading the sports section of the paper. Right then I knew it was forever. https://t.co/cs4yT5JYNl

Love exists! Want to slap everyone of those who say the romance dies after being doing for a couple of years.

one day while we were sitting in the back room of this tiny house of mine, super late at night (read early am). we were listening to some of our oldest punk records, chain smoking camels, and refusing to go to sleep just to be in each other's presence. that was 20 years ago now. https://t.co/qBGy3mEGZl

Laugh till your stomach hurts. How beautiful.
The way he looked at me and smiled, and always was doing something to make me laugh.. not just giggle but full on laugh til my sides hurt. https://t.co/0qOzE5rvoz

Drives are contagious.
We was driving, we had talked for ages and then we had a good sing song. And I just looked over and all I felt was love. https://t.co/A8BzYzPA15

Maybe the feeling is there it just takes time to surface it. It is so beautiful to read how it hit people that they’re in love at the most random-est situation.
We were standing in the kitchen getting food and it just kinda hit me. https://t.co/0elBn7bG0w

Lately, toxic relationship stories have been on the rise. This thread makes us so happy that there are people together who are happy together, for real. Faith in love, restored.
When we’d been seeing each other for about 6 months and I realised that every time I’d seen him had made me happier than the last ❤️ https://t.co/C5ZenllEXc

The definition hits the bull-eye.
We'd been dating 41 days. He told me he'd been Googling the word "love" and reading its definition, "a thing I already definitely know, just because these chemicals make me feel uncertain about a lot of things 'cause everything feels new and scary." I realized I loved him too. https://t.co/D1vPJS0fEy

When one knows it’s worth it then there are no excuses left to not go an extra mile for the other person.
When he drove 47 miles to get me the chocolate I wanted 😍 https://t.co/LY1C9wg4qk

Some nasty love right there.
When I farted in bed and she didn't complain https://t.co/VC0Zr4mxIn

This person is lucky. It is difficult to find someone who’d actually be there in your sickness and health, over here the vows are being fulfilled even before being said out loud.
I was admitted to hospital for depression and a nervous breakdown of sorts. He'd been pursuing me for a few weeks despite my protests but I knew I was in love when he alone fetched me, helped me dispose of meds and held me close and hasn't let me go when I have anxiety attacks https://t.co/ewHEVnsc6g

Long days automatically become better.
He always spends at least 5mins before we go to sleep tickling my back no matter how tired he is because he knows i enjoy it so much❤️ https://t.co/j1AFzLB1NN

Do you believe in love at first sight? Cause seems like that is an actual thing! I remember my love at first sight (at-least that’s what I thought back then) sadly, never saw him again.
The day we met. 💜 https://t.co/OwqcxTOTCQ

Oh, the bittersweet first love.
we met on a New Year’s Eve && clicked immediately. i knew that night itself that he was going to be Somebody. we spoke over the phone every night, sometimes until sunrise. a year later, we were each other’s First Kiss. we never made it through, but it was a mad, burning innocence https://t.co/jG6J3LsH9z

In a world where there are so many sob stories being shared on daily basis, a thread like this was much needed. Love does not have to lead to heartbreak, every relation does not turn sour, people are out there making it work and appreciating each other. All these stories give hope.
