Ever have a heart-thumping, eyes-meeting-across-the-room or a love-at-first-sight experience? Did you find your true love after years of friendship or a rekindled romance years after you parted?

Did you find your soulmate online or on a blind date? Did your parents or grandparents have a special story that you heard growing up?

We want to hear your love stories.

Readers are invited to send their love stories to sturner@aikenstandard.com or mail them to the Aiken Standard office at 326 Rutland Drive, Aiken, SC 29802, attention Stephanie Turner by Feb. 6.

The story could be personal or one of a family or friend member. Each story can be no longer than 100 words. Photos are optional. We’ll run some of the best on Valentine’s Day in the Aiken Standard and most will appear on aikenstandard.com.
