Trista Sutter: ‘I Have Not Been Happy a Lot on Valentine’s Day’

02/14/2014 at 07:15 PM EST

Trista Sutter may seem to many like one lucky lady, but before meeting her hubby Ryan, the former Bachelorette star says she had many dark days in the romance department.

“Oh, gosh, I’ve lived a lot of Valentine’s Days by myself and wanting someone like Ryan in my life,” Sutter, 41, told PEOPLE on Thursday. “I can’t remember one in particular that was horrible, but I do know that I had been alone a lot on Valentine’s Day and not been happy a lot on Valentine’s Day.”

Now, a decade into her marriage with the man she met on ABC’s hit show, Sutter says life is pure bliss.

“I’m happier than ever, actually,” she gushed. “I think when you wake up in the morning, you know if you’re complete. And I think when you lay your head down at night, if your mind isn’t wandering and you’re not on the verge of tears, then you have a smile inside, even if you aren’t always smiling.”

But even when she wasn’t in the best place, romantically, Sutter – who teamed up with Viva Vantage paper towels to encourage consumers nationwide to break up for the better and move onto cleaner, happier relationships – tried to remind herself, “There can always be something around the corner even better for you.”

She explained: “I think if you keep your life open to possibilities, then crazy things can happen – like falling in love on television. When you’re in that bubble, it’s hard to focus on the positive and know that something is around the corner, but we can never give up hope and we can never settle. Don’t let yourself be overtaken by the sadness or the frustration or the anger.”

As for her own Valentine’s Day plans on Friday, unfortunately they aren’t too riveting.

“I wish it were something romantic and something fun, but Ryan’s working, so he’ll be at the fire station,” she said. “I’m hoping to make something fun with the kids and take it to him. And then we’re actually going to Disneyland.”

Couple Married 67 Years Pass Away 32 Hours Apart

Its own Valentine tale, the real-life love story of Michael and Olympia DeNittis could practically be mistaken for a movie script.

The couple first met as children while growing up down the block from each other in Port Reading, N.J., reports the Asbury Park Press. Throughout their 67 years of marriage, the pair were nearly inseparable till the end, passing away just 32 hours apart.

Olympia, 95, succumbed to pneumonia on Feb. 2, in an Edison, N.J., hospital. Family members were devastated by the loss, but chose not to share Olympia’s death with her husband.

Michael had health issues of his own. The 94-year-old had spent the past four years vigorously battling colon cancer. The man’s family feared the tragic news about Olympia would crush Michael’s will to live. After spending a lifetime together, it appears Olympia and Michael had their own plans.

“I think she was dying of a broken heart, but I also think she wanted to pass first so he wouldn’t have to enter heaven without her there to welcome him,” the couple’s granddaughter, AnnMarie McDonald, 29, told the Asbury Park Press. “And when my grandmother made up her mind to do something, she did it. She did this as a testament to their love.”

Childhood sweethearts, the couple married shortly after World War II. Over their six-plus decades as man and wife, they had two children, and later, a granddaughter.

Michael, who had always been determined to fight for the life he had built with his wife, awoke from his hospital bed in New Brunswick, N.J., shortly after Olympia’s death, asking about her. He told his family that he had dreamed of his death and started to ask about Olympia’s health.

“I think instinctually he knew she had died,” McDonald told NJ.com.

The family continued to keep Olympia’s passing from Michael, but the well-meaning secrecy couldn’t separate them. Thirty-two hours after his wife died, Michael joined her.

Despite grieving a double loss, Michael and Olympia’s surviving relatives have found some peace in knowing that the dedicated couple were not apart for long.
