Writing Challenge #3: A Love Story-Fact or Fiction

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and love is in the air. It must be time for Writing Challenge #3. Here are two questions for you. Choose one and write a paragraph in the comment section.

1) How did you meet your current romantic partner?
2) How did your parents meet?

Now for the "twist". Your paragraph does not have to be true. You can write the true story or a fictional story. Readers can guess whether your paragraph is true or not (use the comment section). When the challenge ends(wait until the end so that everyone can guess), please come back and tell us if the story was fact or fiction!

Here's my answer to number 1. wrestler

My girlfriend and I used to go to a bar every Monday night to watch WWF wrestling. The bartender gave us a free drink once in a while because he thought it was funny that two grown women watched wrestling. When he finished his shift he would always join "the wrestling girls" for a beer. We became good friends and after a few years of hanging out we started dating. I never watch wrestling anymore, but my husband and I have been together for ten years. We thank "The Rock" for getting us together. --Fact or Fiction?

Take a guess. Then, write your own story.
Here are some phrases you can use in the comment section to say whether or not you believe a writer's story:
"Tara, that can't be true."
"I don't believe that, Josef."
"That sounds like a true story, Lynne."
"I doubt that."
"You're pulling my leg, Lisa."

"twist"= a slight change; added fun or mystery
"The Rock"=a famous wrestler and actor
"hanging out"=spending time together casually

The stories you told are all lovely! It doesn't matter if it's true to me, because I'd rather believe they're all true. I always have hard time to make stories anyway, but if I tell the truth, then, there won't be a story. All right, here you go:
One day, my mom asked me to hand deliver a package to a publisher, so I went. The receiver was a handsome man who was apparently older then me. He was very polite and greeted me with a style (that maybe only I perceived like that). We chatted a little bit which I forgot what we talked, but I had extremely warm feeling of him. We agreed to see each other. Then, we saw each other very often... and I fell in him...It was the first time I got chance to date a man.

I think it is ture.It makes no sense to make up a story about your love or marriage.

Anushka and Uyen. These both sound like true stories. You haven't fooled me, have you?

When I was in my teen age I met my first love. We both were schooling and we both lived in the same village. After my O/L's I left my school van and used to go by train top the school. One day I missed my train and went by bus. In that day I met him and said hello to each other as same villagers. Then he asked me about the train and in the very next day he emerged lie a ghost at the station. I was little nervous and talked to him like a stranger. Day by day our love grow like a tree. However that was only a teen love and after couple of years it has broken, but today also I feel it. It is the first love of my life.

Riya, this sounds like a true story. Do you mean it was your friend's wedding? I can picture your quiet, uncomfortable moments together. Nice writing!

Myo Nyunt are persistent! I believe your story. April, I believe yours too. I hope you and Erwin will realize that some best friends are meant to be together.

i was really enjoying reading all these stories i think most of them are true,but afew stories are fiction.
Comment by April Abigail Solon on March 6, 2009 at 14:16
the story sounds to be true but I still have a doubt over it.
here's my story...
Erwin and I were classmates in journalism class, at first, I was trying to ignore his presence but his amiable character brought us together. Before the month long special class ended a special friendship started to grow stronger. two years later, Erwin and I fell in love but we both decided that we must keep that love through our friendship. It has been six years now when we commit ourselves in a promise and guess what? we were able to save our feelings for last!

Do you think it is true or not?
Comment by Myo Nyunt Maw on March 3, 2009 at 5:00
Tara, I think it is more into a fiction!
What about mine? try to guess, ok!
I worked in an office.One day , a girl came and applied for a receptionist post for the same office.When I looked at her application form , I had a strange feeling that I did not know exactly.Later on ,she was appointed under me.Most of the time ,I made her angry.She even thought of quitting job because of me.She hated me a lot.She wanted to kill me if possible.But I proposed her .She really refused my proposal. I kept trying to win her love.She showed me her boyfriend photo .She introduced me to her boyfriend.I requested her not to stop my attempt to win her love.In the end , we got married in February.
Guess is it real or not?
