Happy Valentine Day :))

I’m a freak for ‘True Love’ and ‘ever after’. And whenever I meet a couple, my question is how did you meet? Or what keeps your marriage going after so many years?

In a world where divorce is the order of the day, it’s so nice to see two people committed to each despite the crazy obstacles...

True love is worth waiting for even if it takes a lifetime, then in return, a lifetime of love will be waiting for you. But true love is rare. Only some lucky people have been able to find true love in their life. 
“Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

If while reading these stories, some of your precious tears come out, this mean, you too are a true lover.
Been scouring the internet for lasting love stories and here are some of my faves (“These stories can also be found in many places online if you search effectively.”)
 Share your fave too...Can’t wait read yours.

1.    America’s Oldest Married Couple
John (101) and Ann Betar (97) of Fairfield, Connecticut, tied the knot on Nov. 25, 1932. They've been happily married for over 80 years now. Together they have five children, 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. They have been named the longest married couple in the U.S.
John and Ann grew up as neighbors in Bridgeport, Conn., but Ann's parents arranged for her to marry another man when she was in her teens. She and John were in love, so they eloped and married in Harrison, New York on Nov. 25, 1932.
"We didn't have any money to go any further," Ann said.
John and Ann Betar told ABC News that they considered themselves "blessed."
"We are very fortunate. It can be repeated and repeated," Ann said "It is unconditional love and understanding. We have had that. We consider it a blessing."
They said their secret to so many happy years together is simple: compromise and don't hold a grudge.

2.    True Love is not Found, True Love is Built.
Girl and a boy were on a motorcycle, speeding through the night.
They loved each other a lot…..
Girl:“slow down a little.. I’m scared..”
Boy: “No, it’s so fun..”
Girl: “’s so scary..”
Boy: “Then say that you love me..”
Girl: “Fine..I love you..can you slow down now?”
Boy: “Give me a big hug..”
The girl gave him a big hug.
Girl: “Now can you slow down?”
Boy: “Can you take off my helmet and put it on? It’s uncomfortable
and it’s bothering me while i ride.”
The next day, there was a story in the newspaper. A motorcycle had crashed into a building because its brakes were broken. There were two people on the motorcycle, of which one died, and the other had survived…The guy knew that the brakes were broken. He didn’t want to let the girl know, because he knew that the girl would have gotten scared. Instead, he was told the last time that she loved him,got a hug from her, put his helmet on her so that she can live, and die himself… 

3, True Love Never Ends. It Just Continues.
There was a husband who daily sent his wife a rose, whenever he was out. One day he died. Still his wife received a rose everyday. She was shocked. She asked the florist. He said that her husband had paid advance for her whole life.
4.    President Barack Obama met the former Michelle LaVaughn Robinson when she was 25 and he was 27 and they both worked at a Chicago law firm. Obama said he asked her out several times before she finally relented. I'm your adviser; it’s not appropriate, she said, according to Obama’s recollection in a 2007 Oprah Magazine article. “Finally, I offered to quit my job, and at last she relented. On our first date, I treated her to the finest ice cream Baskin-Robbins had to offer, our dinner table doubling as the curb. I kissed her, and it tasted like chocolate.” The B&R is gone, but a plaque with their photo marks where it once was.

5.    Humphrey Bogart met Lauren Bacall when he was 44 and she was 19. Weeks after their first meeting, he ran into her on the Warner Brothers lot. “I just saw your test,” he said of the audition for “To Have and Have Not.” “We’ll have a lot of fun together.” Did they ever. When you watch that film, “everyone could see their love right there on the celluloid,” their son, Steve, told People magazine in 1996. When they filmed the romantic scenes, Bacall was nervous. “I realized that one way to hold my trembling head still was to keep it down, chin low, almost to my chest, and eyes up at Bogart,” she wrote in her autobiography. That look became her trademark. The magazine reported that whenever they would talk on the phone for the next two years, his first words would be, “Hello, baby,” and Bacall wrote that her “heart would literally pound.” They married on a friend's Ohio farm in 1945 and remained by each other’s side until his death from esophageal cancer in 1957.

True love exists. But like ever other thing it takes a lot of hard work.

It goes beyond sex and physical appearances and a day (Click HERE to read my post on that).

It requires God and His Help because only Him truly understands and He demonstrated what Love is. It also requires living less of yourself so that someone else can be happy….

Wishing you lots of love this period. Every day is a ‘Love’ day. And don’t worry if you feel lonely this period. Be grateful you have God, your family, friends and me (at least). Soon and very Soon, the special ‘somebody’, will be with you, with God by your side.

“You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.”

Have a great day….


Thanks a lot for reading :)

PS: This video made me laugh so hard.
