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:

  • “We had our first date overlooking the Louisville skyline. We met there at 4 PM and stayed and talked until 1 AM... That was in August of 2020, it’s now February 2024 and we live in a cute little house near U of L. He is getting his Master’s and I am doing my dream job... We have a beautiful, sweet cat named Pepper. We couldn’t be happier.” — NB
  • “Two months into dating after a night of drinking and good food, Elliott and I walked across the walking bridge. I was a few steps behind him when I said, ‘I’m going to marry you someday.’ Elliott was not too far out of a bad relationship, but this didn’t scare him off. He laughed and gave me a hug. It’s been three years and now we are planning to get married next year. All of our best memories take place in Louisville.” — Anonymous reader
  • “My now husband and I met when we were both leaving Bellarmine University campus one day and his car ran out of gas. I stopped to help, he asked to take me to a movie to thank me, and 12 years later we’re still together.” — Taylor S. + Tyler C.
  • “This is where I became a mom. My daughter is both my littlest and biggest love.” — Erica W (at Norton Women and Children’s Hospital)

Now we’re really feeling the love.
