Her tweet contained a brief summary of her grandparents' "meet cute" story: "my grandma just asked me if i had a boyfriend and i was like 'no' and she was like 'well i went to a random funeral because i was bored and that’s how i met your grandfather' ??????"

We were extremely curious to learn more about the love story of Colleen’s grandparents that started this whole thread. Here’s what she told us: “My grandma and grandpa were from a smallish town with several big families, so my grandma knew of my grandfathers family and decided to go to his dad’s funeral with a friend because most funerals in their town are just large social gatherings.”

“My grandma and grandpa didn’t actually approach each other at the funeral because the funeral was for my grandpa’s dad, but my grandma saw my grandpa and asked her friend ‘which son is that boy,’ because she thought my grandpa was cute,” said Colleen.

“After learning his name she found him at school (he was a year older) and asked him out to her formal dance and he said yes. From there they went out, even after my grandpa went to college,” Colleen continued. “While my grandpa was away at college, he actually dropped out and didn’t tell my grandma and my grandma was so upset that every time he called for the next several weeks she would slam down the phone and refused to speak to him. My grandpa still called her every day to apologize and eventually my grandma agreed to give him another chance.”

What can we say—Colleen’s grandparents’ love story turned out to be even more beautiful than we imagined. “He proposed to her on a romantic bike ride through town, he went back to college to become an inventor, and they had 7 children,” Colleen told Bored Panda. “They were married for almost 60 years before my grandpa passed away! My grandma actually still carries their formal engagement announcement everywhere she goes. I don’t think it was love at first sight, but they loved each other so much.”

Sounds kind of like my parents. My mom was supposed to be at her BFF's house to spend the night. They went to a USO dance at Ft. MacPherson in Atlanta, GA. My mom and her friend had the same color hair and style. My dad came up behind my mom and put his hands over her eyes. She spun and slapped him and he told her he thought she was Beverly. They talked all night at when she was leaving he asked her to marry him. She said yes and they eloped. They were together until her death at 36.

I understand that sometimes love happens when they didn't intended it, but it's not a "nice" story.

This negativity towards the man here is disgusting. Perhaps he was just nice, and she fell in love with the man who was THERE and out of love with him who wasn’t. As if there’s only one involved...

Even if she did fall in love, he doesn't have to respond to that, so he is equally at fault. It's just pretty messed up to betray someone who trusted you to be a loyal friend. Hopefully the soldier who was risking his life found a better woman.

Did you ever hear the song "Give My Love to Nellie, Jack?"

The hidden or not so hidden misogyny of many of the people who are angry is pretty clear. Somehow people have this belief that a woman cannot make her own choices, and that if a man calls "dibs", that's it, the woman now belongs to him unless he decides that he doesn't want her any more.
