What about love 80s
II was born in the 80s and I remember the decade fondly. It was a time of big hair, big shoulder pads, and big dreams. Now, as an adult, I find myself looking back on that time with a sense of nostalgia. I also find myself wondering how I can find someone who shares my love for the 80s.
Luckily, there are now online dating sites that cater to people who love the 80s just as much as I do. On these sites, I can connect with other like-minded people who share my passion for all things 80s. From there, who knows what might happen? I might just find the love of my life.
Now that we found
We launched “We Found Love in the 80s” during the lockdown and started searching for inspiring stories about couples’ journeys to love in 1980s. A wonderful mix of couples shared their love stories, photos, and video footage.
We wanted to understand what it takes for a special person to stay together in a world where romance and relationships are presented as as easy as a swipe on a dating app.
We are still seeking inspiring stories of love. If you or someone you know found love in the 1980s, please send a story and a photograph. We’d love to hear from anyone who just wants to say hello!
WHY DO WE EXPLORE THE 1980S?
For many reasons, the 1980s were a memorable decade. It was colorful, diverse, and sometimes bizarre and strange! It produced some of the most amazing art, music, and fashion that inspires younger generations today. You can’t have both the good and the bad. 40 years later, the 1980s have so many resonances and parallels to our current moment. We had a Conservative government, high unemployment, racism, and a deadly new virus that was spreading around the globe.
Yet, love was still there in all of it. Even though people were still falling for each other, it was much easier to do so if one was in line with society’s norms. For those who did not, falling in love was often done in secret, particularly for those living in interracial or mixed faith relationships.
After all the turmoil and pain we have endured over the last few months, it seems that now is a good time to start a positive project about love.
This project celebrates and uncovers the many unheard stories of falling in love in the 1980s. We’ll be traveling with the couples and documenting important British social history.
