WWII Veteran Reunites With First Love 75 Years Later

It is often said that a person never forgets their first love. No matter how much time passes, the memory of that special person remains. Even when life’s priorities change, there will always be moments when a person wonders where their former lover is and how they’ve fared.

For K.T. Robbins, a D-Day veteran, it took over 75 years to finally get answers about the woman who first stole his heart.

In 1944, a 24-year-old Robbins was stationed in Briey, a northeastern village in France. It was during his time there that he met then-18-year-old Jeannine Ganaye. According to the Irish Post, the pair met when Robbins was looking for someone to do his laundry, and Ganaye’s mother stepped up to help.

It didn’t take long before the American serviceman and the French teen became lovers.

Unfortunately for the war-time lovers, Robbins, was given a new assignment just two months later, forcing him to leave. His sudden departure for the Eastern Front made it impossible for him and Ganaye to continue courting.

“I told her maybe I’ll come back and take you, but it did not happen like that,” Robbins recalled.

Ganaye held out hope that the soldier would return once the war ended. She even learned basic English so she could communicate with Robbins.

“When he left in the truck I cried, of course, I was very sad,” Ganaye explained. “I wish, after the war, he hadn’t returned to America.”

Robbins also longed for his lover, keeping a black-and-white photograph of Ganaye with him.

Both Robbins and Ganaye moved on eventually. Upon returning home to Memphis, Robbins met his wife of 70 years, Lillian. As for Ganaye, she tied the knot with another man in 1949. The ex-lovers started their own separate families, with Ganaye welcoming five children over the years.

Still, neither could forget the bond they once shared.

“We had a good life together,” Robbins said of his late wife. “We were married 70 years, but this other thing [Ganaye] was still in my heart.”

Recently, Robbins showed the old photograph of his long-lost lover to reporters during the filming of a report on Veterans in the U.S. for France 2. Little did he know that the gesture would change his life.

Earlier this month, Robbins, now 97, was among the delegation of veterans who traveled to Europe to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. While in France, the journalists surprised him with the news that Ganaye was still alive and wanted to meet him.  

More than seven decades later, the former lovers were reunited. They hugged, kissed and exchanged sweet sentiments.

“I always loved you. You never got out of my heart,” Robbins told Ganaye. He showed her the photograph he kept since all these years. Shocked, Ganaye replied, “Wow.”

Ganaye admitted that she wished Robbins returned to her village, but after the war, his circumstances changed.

“You know, when you get married, after that you can’t do it anymore,” Robbins said.

The couple spent a few hours together, before Robbins made his way to Normandy for the D-Day events. This time, he made sure to declare his love for Ganaye and make plans to meet up again soon.

Robbins, who now lives in Olive Branch, Mississippi, invited Ganaye and her children to visit him soon. Watch the sweet reunion in the video below:

Science Says That You’re Attracted To People That Look Just Like You

Have you ever seen those couples that could pass for brother and sister? Not in the way they act but more about how they look. Look to your own spouse, do they kind of look like you? Weird to think about, but you might see it more than you think.

If you see this all the time, you aren’t alone. Many researchers are studying whether people are attracted to people that look like them, and there are some interesting theories about it.

You have probably heard of the theory that people are attracted to those that look like their parents. A very creepy theory, but it makes sense when you think about it. Sigmond Freud coined this theory as the Oedipus Complex, and his reasoning behind it was, that people subconsciously yearn for a time when their parent took care of them, so we look for that in a spouse.

Being attracted to people that look like ourselves could also be part of this theory. Being attracted to our parents is sort of like being attracted to ourselves, because we share the same genetics.

With these two similar theories, researchers are now looking into the theory that we are attracted to people who share DNA similar to our own.

They are calling it genetic assortative mating, and it means that we look for people with the same body type, ethnic background, or other physical traits as us.

In one study, a picture of a stranger was morphed with a picture of a participant or a picture of another stranger. When subjects were asked to rate the portrayed people for attractiveness, they usually picked the people who were an amalgamation of a stranger and themselves.

This next study is one that I have never heard of and one that scares me just a little bit…

9 Signs The Person You Love Isn’t The Right Person For You

We have all been in a toxic relationship at some point in our lives, a lot of us have even been in more than just one. But why do we do it? It seems simple looking from the outside in, if you’re relationship is making you more sad than happy, just leave.

It is not nearly as simple if you’re the one in the relationship. You could stay in a relationship that isn’t working for a million reasons. Maybe it’s your first real relationship and you just assume that’s normal, you could be scared of being alone, or maybe you truly love them and don’t want to hurt them.

There comes a time in any relationship that we need to take a step back, and ask ourselves how happy this relationship is making you.

If you think your relationship may be toxic but you don’t want to end it for whatever reason, you need to remind yourself that you deserve happiness, and you will find someone that can give it to you.

But what really counts as a toxic relationship, and how do you know if it’s unhealthy? Here are nine signs your relationship may be toxic or just not working.

1. There is no trust.

A relationship without trust is not one that will ever work out in the long run. Even if every bone in your body is a jealous one, you should still be able to trust your partner and know they would never do anything to break your trust. If you don’t trust them, there is obviously a reason for that.

This could be because you have been hurt in the past or they have done something to wrong you in the past. It is definitely something to work on, but you also have to listen to your gut and trust your instincts.

2. They make you feel small or unworthy.

This can be shown through a number of ways. Basically, it’s not healthy if your partner makes you feel like you are lesser than them, and constantly puts themselves above you, at all times. Your partner should make you feel like you matter the most at all times, and you should do the same for them. A one-sided relationship is an unhealthy one.

3. You can’t picture a future.

This doesn’t necessarily mean you’re in a unhealthy relationship, but it could be a clear sign that they aren’t the one for you. This doesn’t mean that you can picture getting married on the first date, but you are in a relationship and you can’t see a future with them or even can picture your life without them, you’re not on the right track.

4. You’re more often sad than happy.

This one seems obvious, but to someone that’s in a toxic relationship, it may not always be so obvious. If you find yourself more sad in a relationship than happy, it’s time to move on. When we’re in toxic relationships, we usually latch on the the times we are happy and don’t acknowledge how often we are actually more upset.  

5. You lie about parts of your relationship to your friends.

I once found myself in a relationship that I felt I needed to hide certain parts of it to my closest friends. In this case, my friends knew it was toxic and often tried to tell me I deserved better. I never listened to them about it. I found myself beginning to hold off telling them about certain fights we had and things I wanted to tell them, but felt I couldn’t.

After the relationship was over I realized how wrong it was that I felt like I couldn’t talk to my friends, because deep down I knew I was being treated badly.

These next four are often seen in unhappy relationships…

“Letter From A Mother To A Daughter”– A Poem From A Mother With Alzheimer’s

Just over a month ago, my family lost my grandmother to vascular dementia. Watching her deteriorate over a course of many years broke my mom’s heart. The woman she grew up idolizing was slowly fading away. It started with forgotten words and getting confused with directions, but eventually things got too serious for her to stay at home. It was unfair to my grandfather to be constantly worried about her safety.

I know that if my grandmother was here today, she’d have the most comforting words for my mom. That’s why this poem from Alzheimers.net is so beautiful. It perfectly captures the love a mother has for a daughter, even if she can no longer express it.

My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old,

I ask you to please be patient, but most of all,

try to understand what I’m going through.

If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times,

don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago.”

Just listen, please.

Try to remember the times when you were little

and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep.

When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me.

Remember when I had to run after you making excuses

and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl?

When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology,

give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way.

Remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things

like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair,

and dealing with life’s issues every day.

The day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient,

but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through.

If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about,

give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient, or arrogant.

Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you.

And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before,

give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked.

When those days come, don’t feel sad—just be with me,

and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love.

I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared.

With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you,

I just want to say, I love you, my darling daughter.

Debunking The 5 Most Common Myths About What Sex Is Like After 50

Sex is obviously going to be a lot different whether you are 20 or 60, but that doesn’t mean it will be bad. There is a long list of myths people like to believe about what sex is like after the age of 50, most of them are not true at all. Sex is going to be different for everyone but that doesn’t mean all 50+ people have boring sex lives. Just because you aren’t as young as you used to be, doesn’t mean your sex life is non-existent.

Here are five debunked myths about sex after 50:

This differs for everyone, but for the most part the frequency of sex doesn’t change doesn’t change just because you’re get older. You are likely to have the same amount of sex you did 20 years earlier. If anything, you can have sex even more once the kids are moved out!

People often have the idea that once you hit 50, you have a boring and basic sex life. This isn’t true, your sex life can be even more adventurous now then when you were 20, if you want it to be. People often say that by the age of 50 or over, they are ready for a change and begin to try more adventurous things in bed.

This one is also false. Many women actually find increased sexual pleasure after menopause, including more frequent or more intense orgasms. We knew there had to be one upside to menopause! Not only women, but both sexes report that sex gets better as they get older because they know how to do it, and feel much more confident to ask for what they want.

Menopause can actual make for really good sex and here’s why:

4 Ways Your Dog Will Show You That They Really Trust You

Although we love our dogs and just expect they feel the same about us, it feels impossible to actually know how they feel about us. It is possible for our dogs to form a bond with us that leads to them trusting us. There are subtle ways our canine friends show us they trust us, and it’s probably something you see everyday.  

1. Eye contact.

If your dog can look into your eyes for a substantial amount of time, it means they love and trust you. By staring into your eyes, it raises their oxytocin levels. This is the same hormone present in humans that produces the feeling of love. It is the same hormone that makes a mother deeply fall in love with their newborn child. So, when your dog looks into your eyes, it means that they have already grown a high level of affection towards you, which builds trust.

2. Doesn’t panic when you leave.

If you have ever brought home a new dog, you have probably realized that they tend to panic every time you leave the house. They do this because they don’t have a strong connection with you and don’t yet trust you. So, every time you leave the house they think you are abandoning them and get upset, (heartbreaking, I know).

Once your dog trusts you, you will find that they don’t panic as much when you leave the house. Although they would always rather go wherever you’re going, they won’t be filled with anxiety every time you leave the house. Your dog trusts that you will come home and they won’t be abandoned.

But those are not the only ways your pup will show that they trust you…

Viral Photo Of A Man Sitting Alone At A Restaurant With His Wife’s Ashes Will Tear At Your Heart

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love, but not all of us celebrate the special day the same way.

Some of us take time on this day to remember all our dear friends and family, while others celebrate with some chocolate and a glass of champagne with their significant other.

But what if that significant other has passed on? This special day only becomes a painful reminder to those who are still coming to grips with a tragic loss.

Facebook user Chasidy Gwaltney was at a restaurant in Corpus Christi, Texas when she saw a heartbreaking scene. It was a man sitting alone with two plates and glasses of wine.

There was nobody sitting there with him, though. That’s when she noticed the glass bottle on the table…

Judge Finalizes Boy’s Adoption, Then He Yells Something That His New Parents Will Never Forget

From the moment they met, Mandi and Tyler Palmer knew that one day they would want to raise children together. However, fate had different plans for them.

Mandi was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when she was 15 years old, and had to undergo dozens of surgical procedures to manage her condition. Even at 32, she still battles malnutrition and has to occasionally go under knife.

Facebook/Mani Luann

While Tyler, a veteran, struggled with PTSD after completing two tours in Afghanistan so he has been attending therapy for a few years to help him cope.

The pair fell in love a few years ago, and supported each other through some of the most difficult times of their lives. They eventually got married and moved to Ohio, where they decided to start a family.

Unfortunately, Mandi’s illness made the process of getting pregnant impossible.

“We tried for years to get pregnant but soon came to realize that it wasn’t going to happen, nor would it be safe for my body to sustain the miracle of pregnancy due to my illness,” Mandi told Love What Matters. “We were heartbroken and quickly found ourselves seeking other ways to grow our family and become parents.”

Mandi Luann/ Facebook

She explained that after everything she and Tyler had been through in the past, they were never ones to give up easily, and this time was no different.

“Because of the health battles we’ve been given, we weren’t the type of people to just ‘throw in the towel’ and let our dreams of becoming parents get shattered,” she said.

The couple decided to become foster parents to determine if adoption was right for them, and in the process the met the miracle they had been waiting for all along.

These Food Roses Are Almost Too Beautiful to Eat!

The day of love is here! Show your sweetheart how much you care by showering them with all the Valentine day favorites – chocolates, diamonds, and roses! But not just any type of roses…food roses! That’s right..learn how to turn all these delicious treats into beautiful roses for you and your significant other to enjoy!

  • paring knife
  • strawberries
  1. Cut down but do not cut all the way through. When you get close to the bottom, angle your knife away from the strawberry  so the petal angles outward like in the photo above.
  2. Repeat this five times around the base of the strawberry.
  3. For the second layer, do the same thing, but cut these petals so it is positioned between two of the bottom petals.
  4. Repeat this around the strawberry five times. Now  for the center of the rose, you can either keep repeating these layers until you get to the tip, or you can cut a spiral as shown below:
  5. Point your knife downwards and cut a spiral to the tip of the strawberry. Use your knife or finger to spread the spiral apart so it looks like a row of petals leading to the tip of the strawberry.
  • russet potatoes
  • small White potatoes
  • manadlyn
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • small muffin tin
  • 1 egg yolk
  1. In a separate pot, boil the russet potatoes, mash. Add the egg yolk, mix and place a spoonful into each pre-greased muffin tin.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  3. Wash the small potatoes and thinly slice with a mandalyn to be no more than a few millimetres thick.
  4. In a separate bowl, coat all of the potato slices in olive oil and salt and pepper.
  5. Lay out roughly 10 pieces of the potatoes in a row, slightly overlapping each piece.
  6. Begin rolling from once side of the row to the other and place each roll into the mashed potato tins.
  7. Add a few extra pieces on the outsides of the roll to finish the rose.
  8. Bake for around 45 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
  • avacado
  • paring knife
  1. Cut avocado in half and peel off the skin. Lay one half of the avocado, cut side down, and slice the avocado thinly. You want the slices to be quite thin so that they’re easier to shape. If you want a smaller rose, you’ll only want to use 1/2 of the slices. Use all the slices if you want a large flower.
  2. Fan out avocado slices so that they form a long line with the slices overlapping each other. I usually remove the small slices from the ends because they are difficult to shape. Starting from one end, curl avocado slices toward the center. Continue curling the avocado slices until you get a rose.
  3. Serve avocado rose on toast with a fried egg, if desired. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper.
  • pillsbury pie crust
  • 9oz semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 large apples (ideally red in colour)
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  1. With a round cookie cutter, cut pieces of the dough just slightly larger than each small muffin tin.
  2. Spray pan and place each rounded pasty down into the openings.
  3. Pierce each tart shell with a fork several times and bake for approximately 7-10 minutes or until slightly golden.
  4. Remove from oven and set aside.
  5. Place the chocolate into a medium bowl. Heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil, watching very carefully because if it boils for a few seconds, it will boil out of the pot. When the cream has come to a boil, pour over the chopped chocolate, and whisk until smooth.
  6. Allow the ganache to cool slightly. Once cooled whip until light and fluffy and add a small amount of ganache to each pre-baked pie crust.
  7. In a medium sized bowl, add lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of melted butter and ¼ up sugar. Mix well.
  8. Using your washed apples, slice pieces away from the core creating 4 pieces, Slice very thin pieces, you may almost be able to see through each piece, this ensures durability when bending.
  9. Toss slices in the bowl with your previously combined mixture and coat thoroughly. Microwave for approximately 1 ½ minutes to soften.
  10. Arrange approximately 7-10 pieces on a flat surface, consecutively overlapping one edge over another. Roll the apples to create a rose like shape and press into the middle of your tart. Add extra pieces around the outside to ensure a full bloom.
  11. Bake at 350 for roughly 20 minutes and serve to that special someone in your life!
  • cupcakes of choice
  • tub of buttercream frosting

10 Worst Valentine’s Day Gifts Of All Time That Will Have You Shaking Your Head In Disappointment

Oh, Valentine’s Day! A holiday where you show how much you appreciate your significant other.

It’s a day you celebrate love, but not everyone is happy with how their significant other expresses affection in the form of gifts.

According to an opinion piece in the Metro UK by Rebecca Reid, the worst Valentine’s gift is lingerie (that is if they don’t know how to buy the right sizes). I beg to differ, there could be a lot of gifts worse than that.

Check out these 10 hilarious Valentine’s Day gifts. You’ll be appreciating your significant other in no time.

1. An unflattering card that expresses their “love.”

Nothing says “I love you” more than all these pictures of Nicolas Cage. To be fair, it looks like whoever made this card put a lot of effort into making it.

2. The “I love you but I also love myself” gift…

They’ve been chewed to “perfection.”

3. This “ha, ha, that’s really not funny” and disgusting gift that will probably never see the light of day again.

What was he thinking?!

4. This candlelight dinner at the most popular fast food chain in the world.

You can see McDonald’s two ways: It’s either a restaurant or fast food. For most of us, it’s fast food and nothing classy. I don’t care how many times we may buy food here, the aura of McDonald’s is not romantic for a candlelight dinner!

These next five are just awful.

The Violent Marriage Of Humphrey Bogart Would Put Hollywood To Shame Today

Nowadays, we are hearing the uncensored truth behind some of the most horrifying stories among the celebrity elite, and it is truly shocking to behold.

With stories of abuse, rampant alcoholism, and violent tempers, many people will want to hearken back to the better times when everything seemed to be innocent and carefree.

Unfortunately, if you lived through the previous decades, you know how wrong those young people are.

Even some of the biggest names in Hollywood had their dark secrets, and there is no better example of this than the tumultuous marriage of movie stars Humphrey Bogart and Mayo Methot, otherwise known (fittingly) as “The Battling Bogarts.”

These high-profile celebrities were married in August, 1938 after a brief courtship, and while they were seen as the Hollywood couple, it was more for their heavy drinking and violent outbursts rather than any fairy tale romance.

But let’s not jump the gun – that was Humphrey’s job!

Man Awaiting Heart Transplant Falls In Love With His Nurse

A Nebraska man has unexpectedly fallen in love with his nurse after awaiting a heart transplant.

Bill Corey, 56, had been suffering from heart failure and needed a mechanical pump to survive. Corey was kept for four days at Omaha’s Nebraska Medicine in 2014, when he first met Debbie Lewis, 58, who was working as patient care technician.

Lewis told TODAY the pair first met when she began helping an ailing Corey walk around the hospital to keep his muscles moving. Soon they became friends, leading him to seek her out every time he returned for another appointment or stay.

As time went on Corey and Lewis became closer, sharing their many similarities. While was divorced, and he was widowed, they both had adult children.

“She was very nice,” Corey said. “I always enjoyed spending time with her. She was very much family oriented.”

While their spark may have been lost on Lewis, her daughters, who all worked on the same hospital floor Corey was staying on, noticed.

“I always knew that he had an ulterior motive when he came up to us, he was looking for my mom and wanted to know where she was in the least creepy way possible,” one of Lewis’s daughters told News 6. “It was really sweet.”
