Here's why this man took a photo of his sleeping girlfriend surrounded by books

A proud boyfriend posted to Imgur a picture of his girlfriend sleeping on Monday. Yes that sounds very creepy - but here’s why it’s restoring some people’s belief that romance is real.

The boyfriend in question, 34-year-old Todd Herres, uploaded the image, of his girlfriend, 38-year-old Eva Alice Webb, sleeping surrounded by books, with the following caption:

My 38 year old girlfriend just started her second quarter of college. She's raised two kids, 15 and 10, on her own, has piss all parents and was the victim in not one but two domestic violence cases.

This is how I found her tonight. I'm so proud of this woman I could burst. We went wedding ring shopping earlier today and I think I'm ready to make the best decision of my life.
