For Valentine’s Day 2024, we made a map of local places where our readers have made memories. We asked for your help compiling everything from proposals to making friends. You did not disappoint.

Explore these local love stories by clicking on the hearts, but there’s just a few love stories that we just had to share:

  • “In 2016, my now-husband and I met in a history class at Ohio State. He was shy and said maybe three words to me that entire semester. We matched on Tinder in the summer of 2017, and have been married ever since!” — Reader Alaina T.
  • “In September 2023, my husband and I had dinner at Lindey’s to celebrate 10 years together! Our love story first began in Tampa, FL where he asked me to be his girlfriend in September 2013. Since then, life has taken us several places including our wedding in PA and in 2021, relocating to Columbus where we fell in love with this city! We’ve been married for seven years, but still celebrate the anniversary of when we officially became a couple too; getting to mark 10 years together with a delicious date night at Lindey’s is a cherished memory.” — Anonymous CBUStoday reader

Now we’re really feeling the love.
