He read a short story out loud in class. I heard his accent and I was hooked, and then his writing moved me to tears, and I was so embarrassed and even more hooked.
We met online and I was so nervous going to our date. When I sat down, the first thing she said to me was, ‘Oh, thank god, you’re not a dude.’ (Apparently, guys use lesbian dating apps to meet girls?) And I just laughed so hard at that. It really broke the ice. I don’t know, I think, looking back after 2 years together, I must have known I loved her then.
I saw him dancing at the bar, like rubbing his ass on one of my friends. We were all out together and he was laying it on thick to get my friends to like him. He looked so stupid.
We’d only been seeing each other for two weeks when she got into a really bad car accident. She was in the hospital for a whole weekend, she woke up and barely remembered who I was, so I gave her an envelope full of all our texts and the receipts for the first date we have printed out. It came back to her and I realized I could never lose her.
I knew I loved him when I asked him for a cigarette outside of a bar and he took out a pack of Marlboro reds, my brand.
I was dating his best friend and we were pretty unhappy, and I was going through my friend’s texts to see if she had been texting her ex when I saw texts from him, saying that he was in love with me and couldn’t help it. I know it’s messed up because I was with his friend, but in that moment I knew I was stupid, head over heels, off my ass in love with him too.
My boyfriend and I had been together about 3 months when I realized I loved him. It hit me out of nowhere, actually. I really wasn’t sure if he and I were going to get to that point. One night, we were driving back to his apartment and we got off the freeway and there was this young woman crying frantically on the side of the road and so he told me to pull over and he jumped out of the car and helped this woman, who had apparently lost her cat. He got back in the car after that and I looked at him like he was a completely different person. Yeah, that was 5 years ago. Still in love.
