I feel a tear-jerker coming on! I love Nicholas Sparks’ movies, but I always know that I will be crying like a baby at the end.

Best of Me Fate

Based on the bestselling novel by acclaimed author Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me tells the story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the love they’ve never forgotten, but soon they discover the forces that drove them apart twenty years ago live on, posing even more serious threats today.

Spanning decades, this epic love story captures the enduring power of our first true love, and the wrenching choices we face when confronted with elusive second chances.ย In Theaters October 17.


(UPDATE: This bouquet is no longer available). The Best of Me has partnered with ProFlowers to bring you “The Best of Me” bouquet, inspired by the film and brought to you by acclaimed author Nicholas Sparks. “The Best of Me” bouquet draws from the film’s picturesque garden scene, where the two main characters unite to give their love a second chance. Reaffirm your own love, just like the characters in the movie, and shop “The Best of Me” bouquet.

He was so cool because he could play all the sports so well and swim like a fish. His name is Teddy and although I haven’t seen him in years, he’s always going to be my first crush and my first love.

    I remember my first love every day. He passed away in March of 2008. He was my best friend and my inspiration. I miss him all the time.

    I do remember my first love. But I was so naive that it’s sort of laughable now!
