If there’s one type of story that people never seem to get tired of telling, it’s how they met. At StoryCorps, we never tire of hearing them, either.

So for our Valentine’s Day episode, we’ll listen to stories about those first glowing moments of a relationship from a couple who met through a computer dating service more than 50 years ago, and another whose love story began in a hotel — but not in the way you’re thinking.

Of course, things don’t always go smoothly when that initial shine wears off. So we’ll also hear from people whose love stood the test of time, even when the stars seemed aligned against them.
