"Lauren and I met and dated for a month eight years ago ...
We were both young so I made mistakes and [we] went our separate ways.
"The day my girlfriend made my daughter a blanket fort in her room, and sat in it with her reading stories and eating popcorn.
She used to wait until I wasn't looking to cuddle her up and talk to her because she was so shy, so I had to hide to see how well she treated her."11.
"We met in the fourth grade, but reconnected 20 years later.
She also still stuck with me even though my parents threatened to kill her and they even said ugly things about her family not being wealthy.
You can even ask her; she will say that she knew she loved me when she put up with all that."10.
"The moment I knew I loved her was when my parents found out I was gay and they disowned [me].
She took me in, and helped me out with paying for school and rent, and drove me around to work and school.
