Guidelines For Sending Us Content

Real stories from real people

What’s your love story?

We’d love to publish and share your love story on our website, either using video or written format.

Categories include:

  • Moving On
  • How We Met
  • Marry Me
  • Reunited

We also pay for poetry.

If your parents or grandparents have an inspiring love story that you’d like to share and you have photos and/or video, these stories are also considered. It’s wonderful to see glimpses of history and love through the generations.

Video Tip!

Create a duo video where you and your Sweetheart tell your story with a “he said, she said” format or the storyteller on your “team” tells the entire story and you punctuate with expressions or comments. Have fun with it, it’s your story!


Moving On

300 – 500 words or 1 to 3-minute Video | Pays $20 upon acceptance for publication

A photo(s) must accompany your written submission to be considered for publication. For Moving On, the photo(s) may be of any time period in your relationship but one photo must show how you’re doing today after moving on. For example, if you took up kayaking, a new hobby, or a new business undertaking. If selected, we will print your first name, city and state.
