Things that make you go “awww!”

I’ve known of the site Gives Me Hope for quite a while now. Nicknamed GMH, it’s basically a site collecting very short anecdotes of endearing stories (chicken-soup-for-the-soul style) all ending with “GMH.” If you’re feeling down and want a pick-upper, then reading this site is sure to bring back the optimist in you.

I was reading this site again and I came across a few LGBT-themed entries that I can’t help but share.

Today, I proposed to my girlfriend of four years in a nice restaurant. When she said yes, the entire restaurant stood up and applauded.

We’re both women.

Understanding of true love GMH. (#24788)

Today, a boy came into our English class to ask his significant other to Prom in a cute, creative manner.

After receiving a yes, the boy kissed my classmate’s cheek, and the room erupted in applause.

They’re both boys.

Our tolerance, and their courage, GMH. (#54306)

Today, my friend told her father she was gay.

He turned and left silently, and she cried, thinking he wouldn’t accept her. About an hour later, he came back with a gay pride flag and a stuffed animal dolphin and said, “Did you know 40% of the dolphin population is gay?”

Her dad GMH. (#45719)

Stories like these GMH. :-)

P.S. If schadenfreude is more your thing, then GMH’s sister site Fuck My Life or FML, would be right up your alley.
