    I was studying at for my last exam today at Starbucks when this really old couple came in and sat at the table next to me. They. Were. OLD.
    Anyways, as I was studying, I couldn't help myself but to overhear some of their conversation and it was to adorable. They'd talk about their younger age stories and memories, "D'you remember when we were in our twenties..blah blah blah". THEN to make everything perfect, the couple decided to leave and the old man got up, took his wifes coat and put it on her like a true old-fashioned gentlemen. I died right there. AND THEY WERE BRITISH. Can't forget that part.
    Anyways, after seeing that, I decided that that's my goal. Sure, I wanna find a good job, nice house, stuff like that, but my main goal is to find love like that. What do you guys think? D'you guys die from cuteness when you see this?

    what does being British have anything to do with it? You want to be British? Does that make them "Cutsier" or something?

    I agree.. I had that when I saw my med school teachers.. a pair of doctors close to their seventies.. a real grandma and grandpa.. working together, living with and taking care of their even more elderly parents lol.... During one exam, the lady went over to her husband, licked her palm, and used her hand to fix her husband's hair in place..

    I WANT THAT! lol

    I'd happily put your coat on for you if I wasn't way too old for you! I do have a cut glass British accent though!

    Sweet story

    It sounds like their relationship is based on respect for each other, which is a pretty good foundation to have.

    There was an older couple in my neighborhood when I was younger and they were the surrogate grand parents and they were so cut together.

    Their house was always just so and we mowed their lawn. He had a heart attack and she nursed him back to health and we took over more of the yard work until he got better. She would stand on the back porch and give us directions to mach sure the yard was right so she could bring him out to eat lunch on the patio.

    He healed and they were good until she got some nuerological disease that caused her to see things that weren't there. We would visit her and he would have us bring out chairs from the dining room to sit and visit. We would have to put them back in the dents in the carpet. he vacummed and cared for her collection of antique dolls. My Mom did their laundry and pressing when I came home from college I would deliver it. He would have me hang it in the closet and put them out on the dresser. every time I came no matter when it was she was always well dressed her hair done perfectly as she lay on the bed.

    It was incredible. That's what I want.

    Can't say I'd "die" for something like that, but admittedly I've made it my a lifestyle choice to keep away from bars and focus on giving everyone a chance, and keeping my eyes and heart open for mister [compatible].

    they are a couple that have truly became one...you can almost bet that when one of them passes away,it will not be long before the other one does also.My paternal grandparents were married for 75 years..grandma was 89 and grandpa was 92.grandma got pneumonia in the nursing home and passed away...within a year grandpa died too..he sat around crying and mourning for grandma.i've seen this with other old couples also..time and time again..

    Okay, so you'd die for this type of relationship. What would you really do for a person that you have this type of connection with?

    Would you stick with them if they became incapacitated? Paralyzed? Brain damaged? Clean up after them, bathe them, feed them, change their clothes, change the bed when they have an accident in it? Or ugly, out of shape, overweight?

    My parents have been together for more than 60 years. My father is almost completely incapacitated, and my mother attends to every physical need and more to care for him. She would never leave him, even with all of the extra strain it places on her.

    When you think about having a lifelong bond with someone, really consider the "for better or worse, sickness and health, happiness and sorrow, until death do us part" aspect of it. If you put the work into creating that bond, there is more to it than what you see in a glimpse of life like this.
