Real-Life “50 First Dates” – Japanese Man Makes Amnesic Girlfriend Fall in Love with Him Every Day

Real-Life “50 First Dates” – Japanese Man Makes Amnesic Girlfriend Fall in Love with Him Every Day

The touching love story between an amnesia sufferer whose memory is wiped clean every morning and the loyal boyfriend who makes her fall in love with him every day has touched the hearts of millions in Japan.

“50 First Dates”, a 2004 romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, tells the story of a young woman whose short term memory was affected by a car crash. Every morning, her memory resets to the day of the accident, but that doesn’t deter Sandler’s character from making their relationship work, even if it means making her fall in love with him every day. It’s one of the best romantic comedies of all times, in my opinion, but I never imagined that such a love story could exist in real life. Well, a Japanese couple is reportedly living their very own “50 First Dates” romance.

Japanese television recently broadcast the touching story of Maruyama, a 24-year-old woman suffering from amnesia, and her fiancee, Li Huayu, who tries to make her fall in love with him again every day. The two have been together for two and a half years and had even discussed marriage, but nine months ago an accident changed their lives completely. Maruyama was riding her bike when a car crashed into her leaving her comatose. When she woke up, she didn’t recognize any of the people in her life, including her parents and her boyfriend.

The young woman’s physical injuries gradually healed, but her memory didn’t seem to improve at all. Despite having to cancel their wedding, Maruyama’s condition didn’t discourage Li at all. He stayed by his girlfriend’s side, convinced that she would one day remember him and the beautiful memories they shared. Unfortunately, things started getting worse.

Two months after her accident, Maruyama started forgetting things that had happened after she woke up from her coma, and eventually she developed the same condition as Lucy, Drew Barrymore’s character from “50 First Dates”. Every morning, her memory was wiped clean, and the people in her life had to reintroduce themselves to her. This caused quite a strain on Maruyama’s relationship with her loved ones. She was confused every day, and even tried running away from home a few times.

Li had to re-introduce himself to his girlfriend every morning, showing her proof of their relationship and explaining what had happened to her. One day, Maruyama suggested they break up, as their relationship had no way of working, but Li refused, telling her “You may have lost your memories, but we can make new ones”.
