There's nothing quite like getting cozy with that special someone as the rain pours down or stealing a kiss under a not-so-discreet umbrella.
And that is why we invited readers to send in their favourite, most memorable rainy day memories.
We've been flooded with responses and as part of an ongoing series, we present the stories we've received.
If you would like to share your story, write in to us at email@example.com (subject line: 'Monsoon Romance') with your monsoon memories. Include your name, age and hometown (those who prefer to keep their identities private may do so) and tell us your love story.
