Short Romantic Bedtime Stories
Is there a better way to fall asleep than after listening to a good short bedtime story?
I think not.
So, if you want to make your girlfriend happy, try any of the stories below:
1. A love that never dies.
A husband bought a dozen flowers for his wife. The wife was a bit shocked to see that 11 flowers were fresh flowers while one wasn’t a fresh flower. Instead, the flower was artificial.
She became curious about such a strange mix-up. At first, she tried to figure out the purpose of that artificial flower but failed in all of her attempts.
In the end, she decided to ask her husband, “Why have you given me an artificial flower while the other flowers are fresh?”
The husband smiled and answered, “I will love you till this artificial flower dies!”
2. True love is selfless.
A teacher lived alone with his wife. They didn’t have much, but they were content.
One day, his wife asked him to buy her a hairbrush as she loved her hair so much.
That made him sad because he couldn’t afford it. But, the next day, he set out to work, sold his lousy pair of shoes for a flimsy price, and got the hairbrush. However, when he got home, he noticed her pretty hair was gone!
She cut it and sold it. And, in her hands was a pair of brand new shoes for her husband.
Tears flowed from their eyes as they never expected to find such a high level of selflessness and love in someone else.
3. It always happens unexpectedly.
Joseph didn’t believe in “love at first sight.” He thought you had to know a person to fall in love with them.
But, that was before he met Anna.
It was raining cats and dogs that day, and Joseph had been drenched to the skin on the short walk from the taxi to the entrance of his office block.
As he ran to get out of the rain, they collided in the doorway. Joseph immediately apologized and bent down to help her pick up her things.
When he looked up, he felt his world shift. Her hair was the color of spun gold, and her eyes were blue. He had never seen anyone so beautiful. Joseph finally understood what ”love at first sight” meant.
And, thus, a beautiful journey of friendship and love started on a rainy day.
4. Hidden desires.
“High school romances aren’t forever!” At least that’s what he thought until Alexa walked into the classroom.
As luck would have it, he had an empty seat beside him. But, nothing happened because he had no courage to tell her… until one day.
He cleared his throat and said, “Alexa, there’s something I’ve been meaning to tell you… I like you. I used to be scared of rejection, but now I just want you to know.”
To his surprise, she replied, “I liked you from the first day I saw you! When I first sat next to you, I was so overwhelmed that I had to keep an aloof face because I thought you didn’t like me at all!”
They laughed and held hands for the first time.
5. The secret love.
A woman and a man were the best of friends. But, the man had actually fallen in love with her; he just couldn’t find the right words to tell her.
One Sunday, he decided to confess. But, she had her own secrets to confess.
His heart nearly stopped beating upon hearing that she liked someone.
“Who is the lucky guy? Do I know him?”
“Of course, you do! I won’t tell you his name, though. I have written his name on this,” she said, handing him a piece of paper.
The moment he reached home that evening, he pulled out the piece of paper and angrily unfolded it. He stopped short when he saw that the name was his.
Beneath his name, she had written, “It’s you, silly… ”
He had never slept better than that night.
Romantic Bedtime Stories For Your Girlfriend
Cuddling up next to her man, and hearing him tell her a good bedtime story is what every woman could use after a long and exhausting day.
If you want the perfect one, you can choose from the following:
1. Fairytale romance after all these years.
Life had changed for me. I never realized it. Moonlight walk changed into late-night strategy workshops. Candlelight dinner turned into business meetings.
Spending even 5 dollars on a bouquet for Valentine’s Day seemed meaningless – you would lose at least half an hour searching for a parking space downtown.
Recently, I had to go to Holland on a business trip for a week. I was working on an important assignment. I checked into the Crown Inn in Eindhoven.
I wanted to rehearse my presentation before I met senior management… but when I opened the file that I needed, I was surprised to find something else entirely – a pink envelope, something similar to what my wife and I used to exchange a long time ago.
There was our family photo, and a pink greeting card with a red heart printed on it. Inside the card, it read, “Miss you, my dear Teddy Bear.”
On my return at Schiphol Airport, after many years, I purchased something for her… a pair of diamond earrings. I was missing her badly, as never before.
2. Love against all odds.
Many years ago, a woman fell in love with a young man from a wealthy family. The two began seeing each other and quickly developed a deep connection.
Unfortunately, the young man’s family was not in agreement with the relationship.
They even threatened to enroll him at a university overseas.
But, they both had fallen so in love with each other that ending the relationship was not an option. So, they decided to run away…. and they never came back.
Instead, they joined the church, and began traveling the world.
They lived like that for 40 years, and even got married, until the man’s life suddenly came to an end…
But, death can do nothing to a love like this, can it?
3. The portrait of love and devotion.
It was the year 1975, when Charlotte von Sledvin, a member of a Swedish royal family, traveled to India to get her portrait made by a gifted artist.
But, by the time it was finished, the two had fallen in love.
Pradyumna, the artist, was fascinated with Charlotte’s beauty. Never before had he seen a more beautiful woman.
Because of him, she decided to stay longer in India. But, unfortunately, the time came when Charlotte had to leave again.
Nothing could stop him from reuniting with her, though, so he embarked on a journey of four months, and eventually arrived at her door. They’ve never parted since.
4. The secret to happiness.
Emma had kept her love secret for so long, letting it grow in her heart. But the secret was so big, she knew she couldn’t keep it inside much longer.
At first, she noticed the secret trying to get out when she began smiling at everyone, and they smiled back.
Then, she would write silly stories in her notebook and paint watercolor pictures on a tablet to make herself smile.
She would neatly tear them out and give them to her friends. Her secret was getting out.
At first, she was a little afraid she might run out of good feelings for herself, but what she soon discovered was it was quickly being refilled as others shared their happiness with her.
5. The cloak of love and light.
Dae was the sun and Knight was a curious man. They both wished for the same thing, to hold and love each other for all time, but they could not be together as it caused them both discomfort.
He used his enormous heart to fashion himself a cloak made of his love for Dae, and then covered himself with the cloak and went to her.
When she saw him, she was overcome with joy and shone brighter than ever.
This made him nervous. The cloak was very delicate. He was unsure if it would be destroyed by her intense rays.
He reached out to her anyway. Then, something magical happened! They were able to finally hold each other! Just as they had wanted all along.
No more did they suffer. Their love is true, but no longer tragic.
6. Princess Rose and the golden bird.
Many years ago, in a kingdom far away, there lived a beautiful princess with long red hair. She loved roses so much that everyone called her Princess Rose.
But, one day, a curse was cast upon her by a wicked witch – her hair turned black!
She thought it was all over until a golden bird told her: “Black hair in rose water.” At that very moment, a handsome prince bent down and placed the hair atop the princess’s tear, and the red hair turned into a red rose.
She plucked its petals to add to the water in the basin. Then, she dipped her hair, and the curse was broken.
Turns out, when the princess and he were both children, he picked a single strand of hair from her head as a sign of his loyalty to her. And, she did the same.
They got married on that very same day.
7. Nothing is as it seems.
It was that time of the year. The prom was fast approaching, and Mike didn’t have anyone to go with him. He didn’t seem to attract anyone.
“Why don’t you ask Rita out?” Mike’s friend, Joe, said with a smirk. Mike knew why he said it. Rita was the most unpopular woman at school. No one liked her.
But, time was running out fast, so he had no other choice but to ask her. She accepted.
He realized with some surprise that she could make him laugh. And, he loved hearing her laugh.
She was a good dancer, too, and the most considerate woman he had ever seen.
As you can imagine, this culminated into something beautiful. He shuddered to think what would have happened if he had not asked her out to prom that night.
8. Love above all.
A woman and a man were riding a motorbike.
He asked her: “Do you love me?”
She said, YES – I love you.
Then, he asked her to hug him tightly and place his helmet on her own head. She was confused but obliging.
The next day, there was news that a motorcycle had an accident because of a brake failure. The guy died while the woman was injured, but out of danger.
He gave her his helmet to save her life.
Moreover, he asked her to hug him because he wanted to feel her warmth and sweet hug just for the last time.
9. Blind sight.
There was once a blind woman in love with a man who was as gentle as one could be.
One fine day, she said to him that she wanted to see the guy who loved her so deeply. He promised that she would, and donated his eye to her. It surprised her to see they had the same problem.
She didn’t know what he had done for her, and he didn’t want to tell her. He loved her selflessly. He didn’t need her gratitude. The only important thing was her happiness.
And now, they were both able to look at each other lovingly and appreciate the world together.
10. The flower of honesty.
In Ancient China, a soon-to-be-crowned prince decided to summon all the young women from his kingdom, and in their presence, announced a challenge.
He said, “I will give you each a seed. The one who brings me the loveliest flower after six months will be my wife.”
They all took the seed and left. Only one poor young woman took her seed and planted it in a pot. She took care of it with love. But, alas, even after six months, nothing had grown!
Still, the prince chose her.
All the seeds he handed out were sterile, and she was the only one who cultivated the flower that made her worthy of becoming the empress: the flower of honesty.

2. A blessing to be cherished.
A husband took a selfie with his wife after she just woken up from sleep.
The wife resisted and said, “Why would you take a picture with me when I am all messed up and not looking good?”

My hand still tingled where she grabbed it.
“So, Ava…” She began. I knew this tone of voice… it’s dangerous.
“If I tell you who I like, will you tell me, too?”
“Okay.” I said.
“The person I like… …is you.”
I drop my drink. My voice catches in my throat.

After his death, she discovered that he hid hundreds of Post-it notes around the entire house shortly before he died.
