When it comes to romance, Rocio Andujo's mom has set a golden standard.

The 21-year-old shared an anecdote that symbolized the passion between her mom, Rosalia, and her dad, Robert, and is inspiring others to adopt a special ritual.

The college student beamed about her romantic parents and told Buzzfeed News:

"[Of] all of the marriages I've seen my parents are one of my favorites & not [because] they're my parents but because I see how much respect they have for each [other]."

One day, Rocio made a beautiful discovery.

Her mother Rosalia had preserved flowers given by her husband when the pair were still dating.

"No one knew my mom had kept those flowers. She also still has the first bouquet of roses he gave her."


Rocio's father Robert was delighted to make the discovery at the same time. He had no idea about the flowers, and Rocio confirmed her dad was "so shocked and happy."

The proud daughter followed the romantic thread with pictures that captured various stages of her parents' together as a couple over a span of 27-years.


Rocio said that her mother played hard-to-get when she was younger, before giving in to Robert's dedicated charm.

"My mom always knew my dad was a ladies' man & wouldn't really take any girl serious so she always rejected him," Rocio told Buzzfeed, adding, "because she didn't want to be just another girl on his list (her words)."

"After a year & months of my dad chasing after my mom & trying to get a chance with her she finally gave him a chance since she saw that he kept insisting and insisting even after she would reject him."

Eventually, Robert won Rosalia's heart, and her love consequently made him a better man.

"Well all that rejecting made my dad fall over heels... people would always ask my mom what she did to my dad because he changed so much with my mom in a good way."

For someone previously known as a reputable "ladies' man," people couldn't help but notice how much Robert was enamored with Rosalia.

"Everyone could see how in love my dad was with my mom and everyone would get surprised because they had never seen my dad so in love with a girl before."

The discovery of the preserved flowers just made everything sweeter.


Inspired by Rosalia's floral symbol of her love, Rocio's Twitter followers began sharing their variations on the tradition.








Some regretted not knowing how to properly dry their flowers.


But fear not, the good people of Twitter offered their sage expertise.






Others are noticing how Rocio's parents have not let their looks go.






Rocio's post is giving disenchanted people hope that enduring love can still exist.

"I hope everyone gets to see more about my post so they can bring back all those romantic gestures & pure love that doesn't really exist anymore."


Nothing could be sweeter.

People Confess What Genuinely Disgusts Them

No two people react the same way to a pungent odor, gratuitous violence in film and television, or unruly, off-putting behavior.

As some people have a fairly high tolerance for gore, aren't bothered by taste and smell, and are so patient that they simply aren't bothered by anyone.

Although, everyone has their limits.

And despite what they might say, there are very few people who don't have one thing which even the very thought of will make them gag, just a little bit.

It's rare for a day to go by where women don't, quite understandably, complain about the annoying, even misogynistic behavior of men.

Addiction to video games, poor hygiene, too much excitement over a football or basketball game, bad table manners.

The list goes on and on.

But men don't only annoy women with their behavior.

Indeed, plenty of other men get equally annoyed or revolted by certain stereotypically "male" behavior, and wish it would come to an end.

Poor People Share The Most Out Of Touch Advice They've Received From A Rich Person

Successful people who come from humble beginnings usually don't forget where they came from.

But some of those who were already born into privilege and wealth may claim to be compassionate towards people who are financially disadvantaged.

But unless they've lived the experience as someone from the lower class or have a deep understanding of what life is like on the other side, the wealthy will never understand what it's like to be poor.

People Explain Which Teen Movies Made Them Think 'The Older I Get, The More I Agree With The Adult'

There's a fairly common formula in movies geared toward a teenage audience.

A group of teenagers face one central conflict, to varying degrees of importance and severity, but manage to solve it in a surprisingly short manner of time.

The heroes of these films are usually a hodgepodge of traditional high school archetypes (star athlete, math nerd, girl whose beauty is disguised by a pair of glasses), all of whom the intended audience can completely relate to and root for.

And then we have the adult characters, who are often buffoonish stereotypes, or the outright villain, whose sole mission is to ensure the protagonist will not achieve their ultimate goal.

As teenagers, we often find ourselves ready to boo these grown-ups from the minute they appear on the screen.

But when we revisit these movies as adults, we find ourselves noticing that their behavior isn't quite as bad as we remembered.

Or, more shockingly, we actually find ourselves rooting for them!
