Once upon a time, a blind girl was deeply in love with a man. The man cared immensely for the girl, and in return, she felt grateful to be loved unconditionally, despite all her imperfections.

So, one fine day, she expressed her wish to see her beloved, the man who loved and cared for her so deeply. The man assured her that the day would come soon.

Without the girl’s knowledge, the boy donated one of his eyes to the girl, letting her see and experience the beautiful world and meet the love of her life. Although the man was no Prince Charming, he had a gem of a heart.

She realized he was blind in one eye and loved him still, without any conditions. However, she never knew he was the donor of her eye. And like they say, love needs no sight and no language. It is unconditional if it is pure.

2. Modern Love

After all the years of marriage, love had taken a backseat for Sujoth. Candlelight dinners for him with Anusha had turned into business meetings, while late-night walks turned into long corporate parties. Long phone calls were a thing of the past, and gifts were no longer a ritual. Even buying gifts for her on anniversaries felt like a task that was not worthwhile.

While Sujoth was busy working day and night, Anusha often tried to express her feelings to keep the love alive. He shut her up with just one line: “Everything I do is for us, darling.” So, she kept quiet.

Once, Sujoth had to go to the Netherlands for a business trip, and his parents had traveled from their hometown to meet him, but he didn’t spare even five minutes to speak to them. However, it was nothing new to Anusha, who packed his suitcase and was smiling by the door.

After checking into the hotel, Sujoth wanted to prepare for his presentation and was looking for an important file. He knew that Anusha never missed out on keeping his important stuff. After a lot of searching, he did find the file. However, there was a pink envelope tucked inside the file. An envelope that they used to exchange before getting married.

In the envelope was their family photo, each happy and smiling. It took him back in time. It also had a greeting card that read, “Miss you, my teddy bear.” On his way home, he bought a pair of diamond earrings for her, something solely for her, after years. After all, the love was never lost between them, just hidden. Hence, these little expressions to show your love occasionally are needed.

3. Symbol Of Love

Claire and Phil loved stargazing as a couple activity. They often spent their evenings lying on a blanket on their terrace, looking up at the starry night sky, and pointing out constellations. Some days they even slept there only to be woken up by sweet morning sun rays. On one magical night, as they looked up at the stars, Phil pointed to a particularly bright star and said, “That will be our star, Claire. It will be a symbol of our love, always shining bright, no matter where in the world we are.”

Claire shifted her gaze from the stars to him, and said, “And when we’re away from each other, we can both sit at night and look up at this same star. This way we will know that in one way or the other, we’re connected, no matter the distance between us.”

From that moment, that particular star became a symbol of their love. No matter where they went in life, they were always connected by this star and the love they had for each other.

4. Rock Solid Support

One day, when Jim came to meet Jenna, his girlfriend, he sensed that there was something that wasn’t quite right. Jenna seemed quieter than usual and her eyes revealed that something was bothering her. After a lot of assurance that she could really confide in him, Jenna told him that she had lost her job. Jim was slightly relieved that it wasn’t something as bad as he was imagining. However, he still comforted her.

Jim had some plans for today but seeing Jenna visibly worried, he thought for a bit if this would be the right time. Ultimately, he decided that more than ever, Jenna needed his support and presence now.

So, he took out the ring he was carrying in his pocket, knelt on one knee, and held the opened ring box in front of Jenna. For a moment, Jenna couldn’t understand what was happening. She was experiencing a lot of emotions but as soon as she got hold of what was actually happening, tears rolled down her cheeks.

Jim looked into her eyes, and said, “Jenna, you’re the most wonderful woman I have ever met. I know it is testing time for you, but I’d like to be standing behind you providing you rock-solid support, if you let me. Will you marry me, Jenna?”

Jenna was crying by this time and she barely managed to say yes. Jim put the ring on her finger and they hugged for a long time.

Penny was at the hospital tending to her grandmother whom she loved very much. She was sad that her granny had to stay there with no one to talk to. So, she made it a point to spend as much time with her as possible.

She loved the stories that her granny used to tell her. They had a great time together and she was especially fond of the stories of her and Grandpa. To Penny, they were perfect together.

That day, Granny said that she was going to tell Penny another story. Penny got very excited. But before Granny started her story, she gave Penny a pendant and asked her to hold it. She began her story.

“There was a 23-year-old girl reading her book in a coffee shop. She was disturbed by a very handsome man with a pastry in his hand. She asked what he wanted and the man replied that he wanted her to have the pastry. She got confused and the man explained, “This is my favorite coffee shop and I come here almost every day. I have never seen you before and you don’t have one of these on your table. So, I’m assuming you haven’t had these. They make the best butterscotch pastries.”

The girl found this very strange but not annoying. She asked him what made him come to her, to which he replied, “Oh, just the simple fact that I’ve seen a woman more beautiful in my entire life.” She laughed. He asked if he could get a picture with her and she agreed. They posed for the picture, began chatting, and never stopped for 74 years until she lost him.”

Then Granny asked Penny to open the locket. In the picture were her grandparents and a butterscotch pastry. Seeing her grandmother so in love while telling their story even after so many years, Penny realized that people get old but love remains young forever.

On their way back to their apartment, he kept murmuring, blabbering, and singing random songs. Finally, she dragged him up to his apartment and put him to bed.

He would sleep more soundly and comfortably in his cozy pajamas, so she wanted to change his clothes. Before she could complete her task, he pushed her away, screaming, “Stay away from me, you lady!

The husband stood up and got ready. They reached the mall and they hadn’t even visited the stores when he said, “How much longer? Can’t we go home and sleep?”. The wife ignored him and went on to check out mattresses. He jumped on the first mattress he saw and said, “This is one’s perfect! Let’s take this one. I could fall asleep here.” The wife turned, looked at the salesman, and said, “By any chance, do you husbands? I guess I need one of that too”. They both laughed and the husband stood up.

4. Big Decisions

There was an elderly couple married for 60 years. One time, someone asked them, “How have you been together for so long? What is the secret to your long and happy marriage?” The husband replied, “It’s simple! Very early on in our marriage, we made it clear that for all small decisions, my wife’s opinion would be considered and my opinions would be considered for all big decisions.”

The person then asked, “How has that been going on?”. The husband replied, “Great! She makes all the small decisions like which house we will have, which car we will have, what furniture would look nice, and where should we go for vacations, while I decide whether or not the country’s defense budget should be increased, if our economy is doing well, whether the global warming is in control, etc.”

Everybody understood the sarcasm and laughed out loud, including the wife.

There are plenty of bedtime stories that you can tell your girlfriend. But, while any bedtime story lulled in her man’s voice may sound perfect to your lady love, not every story will convey the right amount of love and warmth. Moreover, every situation demands a different bedtime story to be told.

For example, if your girlfriend loves mystery or action stories, you could pick up a horror or thriller short story to tell her. If she is feeling low, you can tell her a cute, funny bedtime story to cheer her up. If you are miles away and missing her, counting down the days till you meet each other again, a romantic bedtime story will do the job. Hence, understand your girlfriend’s mood, analyze your relationship’s current situation, and then pick the best bedtime story for your girlfriend.
