#12: A Love Story for the Books
This Twitter user named Kitty lamented in this thread about how boring and unromantic our modern-day love stories are compared to stories from times past. Kitty’s grandparents met while they were both in the Royal Merchant Navy. Her grandma apparently looked so charming earning socks that her grandpa immediately fell in love.
Kitty’s grandpa may have been falling in love with someone new on board, but he was actually already engaged to someone else! For some reason, Kitty thinks that this fiance probably thought he was lost at sea, which we find concerning. Did he just ghost his fiance for Kitty’s grandma? Why couldn’t he have just broken up with her like a normal person? So many questions.
