You might love Valentine's Day. Or, like Joel in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," you might believe that it's a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap.

However you feel about this day, we wanted to say thank you for listening to this podcast about love in all its forms. And we wanted to leave you a valentine, made up of stories submitted to the Modern Love column by readers from around the world. These stories are drawn from the tiny love stories project, which Modern Love debuted in 2018. It asks readers to tell a love story in no more than 100 words.

Thanks to the people who contributed their tiny love stories for this episode:

Ryan Leach, Carrie Ferguson, Linh Nguyen, Topher Daniel, Greta Kerr, Gia Sanchez, Kathy Caruso, Michelle Huang, Jennifer Martin, Mary Janevic, Lauren Gray, Bethany Groff Dorau, Cathy Lickteig Makofski, and Phyllis Raphael.
