Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love in all forms, and in an increasingly digital world, many romances begin online. But are there still love stories beginning offline? Are the sparks still flying face-to-face, whether in a modern “meet-cute” or an awkward romantic mishap?

We want to hear your stories of offbeat, offline romance – the person you met in the elevator or on an international flight, the odd encounters with love-struck strangers, the weird, the wild, the romantic. Leave your stories in the comments, or tweet us @airtalk.
