    The Germination Of True Love, Part 2

    | USA | Dating

    (My girlfriend is a germaphobe. She pins me on the couch and makes kissy faces at me, so I pull her in and kiss her. She kisses me, smiles, then a look of horror comes over her. She tries to squirm away as she shouts:)

    Girlfriend: “Noooo! Ew! Germies!”

    Me: *laughing* “Too late now. You started it. You got my germs now.”

    Girlfriend: “Take them back!” *kisses me again*

    The Germination Of True Love

    As Seen On All The TVs

    | Tampa, FL, USA | Engaged

    (My fiancé and I are registering for wedding gifts when the registering gun goes dead. My fiancé takes it back up to the front counter, gets a new one, and then literally RUNS away from me. I find him in the electronics section registering TVs.)

    Me: “Uh, how many TVs did you just register us for?”

    Fiancé: *startled that I found him* “I’ll never tell you!” *runs away*

    (He’s a keeper, but now I have to log in to the registry to delete a bunch of TVs.)

    A Scrap Of Meaning

    | Winnipeg, MB, Canada | Marriage & Partners

    (I am sitting on the couch eating chocolate, when I realize that the expiration date on the chocolate is my and my husband’s first wedding anniversary.)

    Me: *waving chocolate around excitedly* “Hey! Hey, guess what?!”

    Husband: “What?”

    Me: “Guess what day this chocolate expires?”

    Husband: “I don’t know?”

    Me: “Our first wedding anniversary! I looked at the date and realized it actually means something to me!”

    Husband: “… Are you going to keep that wrapper and put it in some sort of scrapbook now?”

    Me: “Maybe…”

    Overflowing Sentiment, Part 2

    | Salt Lake City, UT, USA | Engaged, Themed Giveaway

    (I’m texting my fiancé while we are both at work, letting him know what a good mood I am in.)

    Me: “I feel like if I were any happier, happiness would explode out my ears.”

    Fiancé: “That’s great, babe.”

    Me: “Can I ooze happiness on you later?”

    Fiancé: “Sure.”

    Me: “Yay!”

    Overflowing Sentiment

    A Single Dream Is More Powerful Than A Thousand Realities

    , | Blacksburg, VA, USA | Dating, Engaged, Themed Giveaway

    (My boyfriend has left for an internship four hours away from where we live. While he is gone I have a creepy individual follow me around the grocery store. It unnerves me to the point that I ask friends about how to keep people like that away. One of my close friends mentions she always wears her wedding ring and it works. I make plans to buy a fake one to wear around and tell my boyfriend via messenger.)

    Me: “Hey, my friend mentioned she uses a wedding ring to keep the creepers at bay. I’m going to go out and buy a fake one to wear tomorrow.”

    Boyfriend: “Oh? Sounds like a plan then. Just going to go get one?”

    Me: “Yeah, just going to buy a cheap costume ring to wear to ward off unwanted attention.”

    Boyfriend: “Yeah, it worries me when you tell me about these things, since I’m not there. I need to rest for work now, though.”

    Me: “Wish you were here. Bedtime, though. Night, night!”

    (I head to bed and imagine how romantic it would be if he offered to help me find a real ring. I brush it off as being childish fantasy since he has made it clear he doesn’t like marriage. The next morning I wake up and get ready to head out and get a fake ring.)

    Me: “About to head out and get a fake ring. Hopefully it won’t take too long!”

    Boyfriend: “Actually, I was thinking a lot about this last night, and I couldn’t figure out why I was so against marriage since we already are pretty much like a married couple. So, I was hoping I could pick out a ring?”

    Me: “Are you f****** kidding me?”

    Boyfriend: “What?”

    Me: “Am I still dreaming?”

    Boyfriend: “Umm… No?”

    Me: “I thought about how romantic it would be if you offered to help me pick out a ring. I told myself I was being stupid and childish and now it’s happening!”

    Boyfriend: “Not so stupid and childish now, huh?”

    (He did help me pick out a temporary ring until he could afford a real engagement ring and even got down on one knee and asked if I would agree to be his fiancée at a later date! We’re not very romantic, but this most certainly was!)
