15 True Love Stories That Will Melt Even The Coldest Of Hearts

I Asked 15 Couples Of All Ages To Share How They Met, And Their Stories Will Melt Even The Coldest Hearts

The rest is history.


Beware: If you hate the love and happiness, you are going to freak out when you read ahead. I had the opportunity to talk to some cutie pies of all ages and find out how they found true love.

1. These soulmates who prove that fate is real.


"It was Spring break March 20, 1984. Went to Fort Lauderdale with my friends. We were all getting ready to go out when our hotel door opened. ( doors were left partially opened because the floors were full of kids and we would all hang). Three guys came barging in 1 yelling that he had to use the bathroom ( he was a bit intoxicated ). It ended up that I knew he was best friends with my roommate. There were two others that were with him, Doug and Scott. Scott and I started talking and hanging out the rest of vacation. When we went back to school I asked him to a sorority dance and we started dating." — Nancy

2. This pair who shares a bit of a common interest.

"So my boyfriend and I met through rugby here at school. He was captain and president of the men's team and I was an officer for the women's team. Anytime we'd see each other we'd hug and chit chat for a bit. I realized that we played the exact same position, tighthead prop, and my heart began to flutter. Only props understand each other's pain so it was awesome to find someone that truly understood the true physical pain that came when playing that position. I finally built up the nerves to ask (aka force) him to dance with me and the rest is history." — Katie

3. These sweethearts who had an instant connection.


"So freshman year, I made some friends on the UA class of 2019 Facebook page; a lot of them lived in the same dorm as me and a few were on the same floor! I spent all summer talking with these guys (and gals) and had really gotten close to them. Move in comes around and I've met all my new internet friends and we are all having a blast.

When classes started I started seeing less of my new friends, so a week in I messaged one of my new guy friends Jim, who lived down the hall, to see if he wanted to hang out. He said yes and I went over just to chat because I had only seen him once since move in. I get there and he's showing me around, and he shows me his roommates rooms because they all had their doors open and really that's all I can figure about his motives, haha! There was only one other roommate there, so i felt a little bad about peeking in the other guys' rooms. Anyways, We come to the last room and he says 'This is my roommate, Alex's, room. I think you two will get along.' The first thing I notice is a HUGE tapestry of a big beautiful wave and a sunset... this tapestry matches the tattoo on my ankle perfectly. Immediately I was like oh my gosh I want to be this guy's best friend. So I go in his room and write a cute message on his whiteboard saying that I can't wait to meet him, yadda yadda.

Then, for some reason beyond me now, I SAT DOWN ON HIS BED. I just plopped right down. So I sat there and talked with Jim for a while about whatever, and then alex came home. He comes home and walks right to his room to find me laying on his bed and Jim leaned against the door frame! He was super polite and I was ridiculously embarrassed and taken aback because I thought he was so cute." — Harlyn

4. These sweethearts who found love when they least expected it.


"I had just gone through a heart-wrenching long distance break-up two months prior. That night, my Mom encouraged me to go hang out in the common room of my dorm instead of just sitting in my room. So, I baked some gluten free banana cookies. I read while they baked (... '50 Shades Freed') and, while I was reading, a flash of red skated by. That flash of red ended up being a tall ginger boy. For a few hours, I chatted with him and his roommates and played 'Mario Kart.' It turns out that he skated by because he got locked out of his room while doing laundry. Later that week, he texted me to ask me on a date. I was nervous to open myself up again, but my Mom encouraged me to say yes. We walked in a light snowfall to dinner and ended up chatting for, like, six hours afterward. Two and a half years later and here we are, deeply in love. He is my nugget. — Amanda

5. These two who showed that if it is meant to be, it will be.

"Once upon a time two teenagers fell in love. Saving herself for the marriage that she anticipated, she became pregnant. He didn't know, her mother lied. She was sent away. He moved on with his life because he couldn't find her. She had their daughter and gave her up for adoption. He went to Vietnam. She moved on. He moved on. Fast forward 15 years they found each other again. They reconnected, had blended families, and are living happily ever after." — Lorianne

6. These lovers who showed that last minute plans can be a good thing.


"Mike and I met at our friend Jeremy's party sophomore year. I did not plan on going to that party, but Andrew invited Abby and I last minute. I met Mike there. We hung out all night and exchanged numbers." — Megan

7. These two who are on different teams, except when it comes to loving each other.

"I was born and raised an Army brat, and I work on a Navy base in Texas. I made friends with some Navy pilots, who went to the Naval Academy (their rival is United States Military Academy aka Army, and I used to live there!). Well, they invited me to a bar to watch the Army/Navy football game. I was nervous, so I drank, a lot lol. Was crazy drunk but making friends with everyone. I don't remember meeting anyone, but this guy Alex! Later that week, I'm on tinder and realized Alex and I had been matched, for who knows how long. I messaged him asking if he remembered me and he invited me to a party at his house, I went, and hit it off with his roommate, Ben, who knew who I was. Apparently, I met him at the bar watching the game but did not remember. We talked every single day over winter break and have been dating since January 7th! We will be doing long distance for the next 2 years while I'm at Alabama. So worth it. And we have the best Army/Navy & Alabama/Tennessee rivalry going on!" — Kayla

8. This couple who loves spontaneous adventures.

"I was in New Hampshire visiting a friend. When we were leaving brunch, her coworker was crossing the street at the red Light we were stopped at, so I asked him if he wanted to go on a hike with us. We spent the whole day together and the rest is history." — Gabi

9. These lovebirds who have been connected for a long time.


"IDK if this is cute, lol, but Nate's grandparents and my grandparents have been friends since the '70s and lived in the same neighborhood up north. We separately have memories with each other's grandparents like his would come to our Christmases if his family wasn't in state and he went snowmobiling with my grandma when we were little. We met in seventh grade at our grandparents' church and then met again in ninth grade and had study hall and classes together but in 10th grade he randomly texted me and we started to talk. He is the first person that let me drive them around when I got my license lol." — Rachel

10. This couple who proved that sometime the long route is the best route to take.

"My roommate Sue was walking the long walk back to our apartment after buying her books a few days before our senior year of college started. A cute guy walked up to her and asked her to come have a beer with him and his friends, who were hanging outside of one of their houses. She said sure and joined them. Well, turns out that one of the guys dared him that he couldn't get the next girl to walk by to come have a beer with them. The only reason she said yes was that they were all lacrosse players and she actually knew several of them. They started going out right after that. They have been married 25 years and have two kids in college now. Both played lacrosse." — Debbie

11. These babes who found love on a "lame dating app."

"My coworker made me a dating profile on this app called "OkCupid" and I told her that's the lamest thing ever and I will never find someone on an app like that.... well three days later this guy messaged me and asked to go on a date and I was bored so I figured 'why not.' Well, we went out and actually had a great time and ended up going go-karting. While on the date he mentioned to me how he can't believe he met a girl like me on a stupid app called 'OkCupid" and I laughed so hard my drink came out of my nose.... and just like that a year and a half later, I am still with him. But the catch to this story is not many people know that we met on a "lame dating app" so we decided to make up a bunch of crazy funny stories about how we met and that is what we tell people instead of the app story and to this day we continue to keep the app story our little secret." — Lexi

12. This pair who literally walked into each other's lives.


"My SO was a pledge in my roommate's boyfriends fraternity. One day my roommate's BF came over and my SO was with him. He literally walked right into my life through my front door." — Bailey

13. These lovers who love the Crimson Tide.

"I went to an all-girls high school, my now husband went to our brother school, the all-boys school in town. His father taught my 11th grade English class. We knew each other, but not really. He graduated a year before me and came to Alabama. I wanted to go to Bama, but couldn't afford the out of state tuition. After failed first years at college, we both ended up moving back home. One day I got a Facebook message from him that said 'I'm sorry if this is weird, but you are the most beautiful girl I've ever seen' — and the rest is history. We ended up moving back to Tuscaloosa together, I graduated from UA a couple of years ago, he is graduating this December. It's been eight years, married for four." — Lacy

14. This couple who really has been through the good times and the difficult times together.

"I met my girlfriend on Bumble when she was in my area for Thanksgiving with family. She was so beautiful in my eyes, I even purchased the pass for $7.99 that allows you to message the girl first. I had to get to know her. We went on our first date on my birthday. Decided it was a go. We've been together eight months, and she's battling cancer right now. If she makes it to next summer, I will propose and marry her. I've already bought the ring and all." — Tyler

15. These gals who proved that distance is worth it.


"I went to Army basic training and got injured. Because of my injury, I got held back a class when I graduated and went to AIT (my job school). My wife just so happened to be in my class and we were by chance placed in the same platoon, which meant we would see each other 24/7. Her barracks room was right down the hall from mine and we quickly became best friends. We did everything together and sat beside each other in our classes. We eventually caught feelings for each other and started dating. She lived in Boston and I lived in Alabama so it was tough doing long distance for a while. She eventually decided that the south was for her and she moved down where and we got married. She's still a New Englander at heart with her Bruins hockey and Dunkin' Donuts but we are living a happy life in Tuscaloosa." — Courtney

23 Times We Fell In Love With Nathan Scott From 'One Tree Hill'

Always and forever everyone's favorite basketball player.

Throughout "One Tree Hill," everyone has their favorites, but there is no character like Nathan Scott. Right from the start he makes his way into our hearts, but throughout the nine incredible seasons his character never disappoints. Here are a few of the times where #23 made our hearts stop.

1. "Pilot"

Well obviously, the first moment you see the tall, handsome man with dark features... you're hooked. Although this is Nathan's egotistical self, he's still pretty to look at.

2. "Are You There?"

It was only episode three where Nathan set the bar on pickup lines with his, "Don't say I never gave you anything," speech to Haley. He gave her a bracelet I'm sure only a five-year-old would wear regularly. But if it was a gift from him, I'd never take it off either.

3. "Every Night Is Another Story"

Love at first sight! Nathan Scott is shirtless. Need I say more? He's also kinda cute when he's embarrassed. (Don't worry. You are too, Lucas).

4. "The Search For Something More"

"You shouldn't have done that Nathan."

"I wanted to."

"Dare You to Move" blasts in the background as we see Naley in the making. Yes.

5. "I Shall Believe"

Nathan swallows his pride and visits his brother (whom he still hates at the time) at the hospital after his accident. He just happens to be there when Lucas opens his eyes for the first time.

6. "To Wish Impossible Things"

The boy-toy auction. I'm not OK.

7. "The Games That Play Us"

"But my heart says, 'Just forget about your pride, you idiot. You love this girl, and even if you're going to catch pneumonia, your ass is going to stand out here in the rain until you convince her to forgive you.'"

OK Nathan, be more perfect. I dare you.

8. "The Desperate Kingdoms Of Love"

I have no words. I'd marry him at 17, too.

9. "The Hero Dies In This One"

When our nightmare becomes reality and Haley leaves with Chris Keller to work on her music. Our hearts both grow and break for Nathan.

10. "Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows"

My heart.

11. "An Attempt To Tip The Scales"

Haley's back, Nathan's still mad. But, he does come to her rescue as just about the hottest Batman ever.

12. "How Resurrection Really Feels"

Nathan travels with Chris to win back Haley's demo that Chris lost in a poker game. Working with the person he hates most to get back the reason Haley left him in the first place... That's love.

13. "The Wind That Blew My Heart Away"

Nathan admits to Haley that he's been keeping track of her musical journey the whole time she was away because he was low-key proud of her. He deserves that rain kiss for being so perfect.

And in the same episode...

14. "With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept"

During the most devastating episode (in my opinion), Nathan runs back into the school to make sure Haley is safe from the shooter.

15. "Everyday Is A Sunday Evening"

"You got nothin', Scott!"

Not breathing.

16. "Everyday Is A Sunday Evening"

And just when we thought this episode couldn't get any better...

Yes, Nathan, you are sexy.

17. "The Show Must Go On"

We fall more in love with Nathan when he risks his own life on his wedding day to save crazy Rachel and his uncle, Cooper. So heroic. So amazing.

18. "I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness"

Nathan gets a full ride to Duke University, his dream school, but later learns Haley is pregnant. He doesn't run off, in fact he says he couldn't be happier.

19. "Resolve"

Desperate times call for desperate measures, but our man knew that. He needed money, so why not put on the best show there is? Although he wasn't the best dancer, I'm not complaining.

20. "For Tonight You're Only Here To Know"

After Quentin Fields's death, Nathan realizes how hard it must be for his son, Jamie. He does his best to be a good father and comfort him. Their father / son relationship makes our hearts melt throughout the series.

21. "Remember Me As A Time Of Day"

Nathan finally makes it to the NBA with the Charlotte Bobcats and we all couldn't be more proud (and in love with him).

22. "One Tree Hill"

It's the oldest story in the world, one day you're planning a future with your significant other, and then you realize Nathan Scott exists, and this is your life. You're lying if you say you aren't in love with him.

23. "Danny Boy"

And let us never forget when Nathan comes home just in time for the series finale. Literally one of the best moments in "One Tree Hill" history.

Nathan Scott, you are my hero. Literally.

After 'Extremely Wicked' And 'The Stranger Beside Me,' We Now Understand The Criminal Mind Of Ted Bundy

1 hour and 50 minutes, plus 550 pages later.


Netflix recently released a movie in May called "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile" (2019), based on the life of Ted Bundy from his girlfriend's viewpoint.

In 1980, an author and former Seattle police officer, Ann Rule, published a book about her experience and personal, close friendship with Ted Bundy, called "The Stranger Beside Me."

These two sources together create an explosion of important information we either skim over or ignore about Ted Bundy. Watching this movie and reading this book can really open your eyes to who Ted Bundy really was. Yeah, there are the confession tapes on Netflix, too, but these other things can really tie it all into one big masterpiece of destruction.

I swear, it will blow your mind in different ways you never thought possible.

In the movie, "Extremely Wicked", Zac Efron stars as the infamous Ted Bundy, America's most notorious serial killer. He portrayed the murderer who kidnapped, killed, and raped 30 women or more. Personally, he made a great Ted Bundy, mannerisms and all. Lily Collins stars as Ted's girlfriend who was easily manipulated by Ted and believed that he was innocent for years.

The movie is told in the order that Liz, Ted's girlfriend, remembers.

In the book, "The Stranger Beside Me", Ann Rule writes about Ted Bundy, who used to be her old friend. They met while working at a crisis center in the state of Washington and were close ever since. Like Liz, Ann believed he was innocent and that he was incapable of these horrific crimes.

Ted Bundy had made both Liz and Ann fools. He easily manipulated and lied to both women about many things for years, his murders being "one" of them.

Okay, so we all know that Ted Bundy was absolutely guilty as hell and totally murdered those women. 30 women or more. He literally confessed to that, but researchers and authorities believe that number to be way higher.

But... you must know that the movie and the book tell two different stories that lead to the same ending. That's why it's so intriguing.

At one point, I couldn't stop watching the movie. Then, I bought Ann Rule's book and was completely attached to it. I couldn't put it down.

For me, Ted Bundy is interesting to me. Unlike most young girls today, I don't have a thing for him nor do I think he's cute or hot. I know that he used his charm and looks to lure women into his murderous trap. That's why it's so hard to understand why this movie and book created a new generation of women "falling in love" with Ted Bundy.

GROSS: He sodomized women with objects. He bludgeoned women with objects or his own hands. He was a necrophile. Look those up if you have not a clue of what they mean. That could change your mind about your own feelings for Ted Bundy.

After "Extremely Wicked" and "The Stranger Beside Me", I now understand the criminal mind of Ted Bundy. He was insane, but he was also smart, put together, educated, charming, and lots more. That's why I'm so interested in why his brain was the way it was.

The criminal mind is an interesting topic for me anyway, but for Ted Bundy, it was amazing to learn about.

I highly recommend both the movie and the book I quickly read in two weeks! If you want answers, they are there.
