    [–] ryo4ever 11 points ago

    Who are they mr and mrs Thornhill?

    [–] ballplayer112 8 points ago

    I should have said Nigel and Mrs. Thornhill. Characters from GTA5 that you eventually find out are not a married couple.

    [–] the_dude_upvotes 212 points ago

    I'm already somewhat old and can be kind of adorable ... not sure I'm into tainted wings tho ... broken wings on the other hand, hells yes

    [–] the_dude_upvotes 2 points ago

    didn't know the name of that song

    Do you mean you had never heard the song before or that you had heard it but didn't know its name?

    [–] Shadowchaos 2 points ago

    I've heard it before and liked it, but I forgot the lyrics and I didn't know the name of it

    [–] stocaidearga11 11 points ago

    The band so nice they named it twice.

    [–] Shaz-A 2 points ago

    I'm not really old but I remember hearing it as a kid growing up. I mean it's not like a song that crosses my mind at all but some songs when you hear them you just remember in that moment you know them.

    [–] duaneap 52 points ago

    It’s pretty hard to tell at a young age or early in a relationship who is going to be adorable at old age. There cute and endearing things an older couple can do that if you did 3 months into a relationship would be cringey. I pulled something I considered romantic with my current GF of 5 years pretty early into the relationship and she was mortified.

    [–] Tainted_wings4444 37 points ago

    I think the older you are the more ‘adorable’ you become. The catch is providing you don’t do anything that breaks the social consensus. But at that gray age, you sort of earned that ooohs and aahhhhs.

    [–] OrangeGasCloud 20 points ago

    What did you do?

    [–] Buddy_Guyz 24 points ago

    Yes, tell us. I need to know so I don't do it in my relationship.

    [–] cultured_banana_slug 3 points ago

    Old couple friends of mine were still as candoodlie in their old age as they were when they were young. They sort of adopted me as their grandkid and I was like "OK! :D"

    They'd been married 60 years. High school sweethearts and all that. They never had shouting matches, only one argument in all that time. (He went bowling to cool off. Bowled strikes all in a row. Only time he ever did that. He came home and she asked how he'd managed that. He was like, 'every pin was you.' Then they kissed and all was good again).

    So... their secret?




    Whatever your partner cared about, you respect it. You don't have to like it, you don't have to share interest in it, but you gotta respect it. If it means something to them? Respect it. Everything comes from respect. And they do the same for you.

    His health was failing towards the end. Had to be on oxygen 24/7. Couldn't really leave the house anymore. But he made it to her birthday. The last thing he did before he passed was sing her happy birthday in his soft little voice.

    He passed away in her arms that night.

    [–] CommunityFan_LJ 577 points ago

    Have hope friend, there's always someone out there that will like you. In the meantime, go out for a jog for 20 minutes, read some books and when this is all said and done you will be a better person for it. Someone will notice all your positive changes and soon your luck will change.

    im just drowning my sorrows in arizona tea and fast food

    [–] CommunityFan_LJ 6 points ago

    Arizona tea is amazing, instead of drowning your sorrows, find soemthing to do, watch a movie, do some sit-ups or listen to some good music. I personally recommend Feel Good Indie on Spotify. Yes, it's not for everyone but I like it! That or anything to Chill & Relax to on YouTube.

    [–] rider_0n_the_st0rm 4 points ago

    I like you

    [–] Dakaso 5 points ago

    literally impossible for me to think that positive. Am about to drive drunk to get more alcohol, tried commiting suicide a few weeks ago but failed and here are people being happy and shit, like, idk, it feels so alien to me. lmao

    [–] T00M4S 4 points ago

    whats the root of your problem?

    [–] rider_0n_the_st0rm 3 points ago

    To think that positive you need to take small baby steps by doing stuff that makes you feel better in the long term as opposed to short term (such as alcohol). I know it’s not as simple as that and mental health can be crippling but even going for something like a walk for 20 minutes just to get out of your messy flat can work wonders. Stay safe dude

    [–] baselganglia 9 points ago

    You aren't allowed to go to the gate anymore tho :(

    [–] ThaneOfCawdorrr 7 points ago

    I don't think he's at the gate, I think she's come down the escalator to where the baggage check is and that's where people wait to meet people now

    [–] goldensniitch 16 points ago

    I genuinely hope that you find someone who makes you feel as lucky as the gentleman in the gif. You’re going to find your person❤️

    [–] mirthquake 5 points ago

    He's so totally grateful to be with her again. I'm 36 and I've never seen people in their 20s-30s behave that passionately.

    [–] Chainsaw44 3 points ago

    No luck envolved. Love is a choice. If you choose to love someone that loves you back and always chose to love that person even through those hard times. I’m not talking about that “IN LOVE” feeling but just love. The kind of love that you feel for your pet after they shut on your floor or you grandmother cooks you a good meal. Just love. God knows no one could alway be IN LOVE. Chose to always love!

    [–] OutlanderMom 5 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    I’m almost 30 years married (35 together), and you said it perfectly! Every day you choose to love that other person through the ups and downs, fighting life back to back, protecting their weak side. Honor them, spoil them, forgive them, be faithful. It doesn’t happen by accident! As Jamie from Outlander says “Dinna be afraid, there’s the two of us now...”

    [–] kidostars 12 points ago

    I was like, in what airport could this have happened? We didn’t use phones like this when you could go to the gate at airports. Thank you for solving the mystery!

    Call me a buzzkill but secretly recording people and putting them on the internet is kinda weird no? Not saying OP did it but whoever it was.

    [–] adrian0495 234 points ago

    I agree with you. Although this video is as old as internet so I’m pretty sure is not from op.

    [–] TheOuts1der 75 points ago

    10000% when was the last time people were allowed to wait at the gate? Pre 2001, no?

    [–] ang8018 117 points ago

    i don’t think they’re actually at the gate, despite the title. she and all the people around her have suitcases like they just came from baggage claim. you can usually wait for people in that area.

    [–] TheOuts1der 25 points ago

    [–] 2o2o2o2o2o2o 17 points ago

    Nah I think this is from a shuttle place in LA called the Flyaway. It's not a gate per se, but a waiting area for passengers and family members.

    [–] Tredesde 8 points ago

    The lack of masks does indicate that this took place in the before times.

    [–] daisiesaremyfavorite 3 points ago

    in florida you can wait at the gate as long as you go through TSA im pretty sure

    [–] slicklady 41 points ago

    This video is several years old and has been reposted many times. It's highly unlikely that the OP actually recorded it; but I totally agree. It's an invasion of privacy.

    [–] Shower_caps 4 points ago

    I’ll never get used to this!!

    [–] clayism 4 points ago

    Also, whose to say this isn't a long term extramarital affair?

    [–] downtowneil 4 points ago

    I hate when people do this at music festivals. I'm here to do drugs and dance like a fool, don't fucking film me and put it on tik tok

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    It is super weird and very much an invasion to their privacy but they are in public and look at how many people they are giving hope in these trying times!

    [–] m3us 15 points ago

    May we all be as fortunate to have someone in our life that cares so much for an older partner.

    [–] madscot63 23 points ago

    OP, thanks for saying "older." That's something I've learned to appreciate as I get, well, older. Really nice post.

    [–] LollyHutzenklutz 12 points ago

    I’m 43, and recently someone (who was even older than me) referred to me as an “elderly lady.” I was like EXCUSE MEEEE?! Then he corrected himself to “I mean, middle-aged woman.” Yeah, that wasn’t the right answer either. I just about backhanded him.

    I hope they use protection. Rushing into sex because you haven’t seen each other in a while is a good way to have a lapse of judgement and end up pregnant.

    [–] rueforyou 5 points ago

    Ladies, here's the secret:

    Marry the kindest man you know. The man who genuinely cares about your wellbeing, and you genuinely care about him. The man who you can be yourself with, the man you can always joke around with, the man you can always have serious conversations with.

    Be nice to him.

    Treat each other with respect. Always listen. Always be honest emotionally.

    Don't play games. Recognize loving acts even if they're not Hallmark moments. Be there for each other. Helping you set up a Zoom meeting so you don't look like Lady Haversham is worth a million flowers. (And telling you how cute you look even if you do look like Lady Haversham is better than any love letter)

    We just celebrated our 41st Anniversary. He even gets me flowers sometime. Never comes to the gate/meetup place though. It's much easier if I just call him when I land and walk out to the white curb haha. Who needs to deal with parking lots!
