Fridays Reflection: Romance

My first three dates with John are probably the most romantic things I've ever experienced.

Date #1: Meeting face to face for the first time a little after midnight on April 25th 2008. We ended up at Denny's, sitting across from each other wearing goofy grins and picking at but not actually eating apple pie ala mode. We talked until 5 am. I didn't kiss him goodbye, I was to chicken.

Date #2: The following night, riding on the back of his motorcycle up to a little bar on the St. Johns River. I held him so tight, my head resting on his shoulder... I can remember smelling the skin on his neck. We didn't say much. Didn't need to. This time, when the date came to an end, I let him kiss me goodbye. It was, without a doubt, the best kiss I've ever experienced.

Date #3: He surprised me by driving us to the beach. We found an abandoned lifeguard stand, climbed up into it and sat looking at the stars and listening to the waves. I remember draping my legs over his, kind of half sitting in his lap. I knew I loved him that night and I knew he felt the same. It was just too soon to say the words.

I've searched a long time for this one.

I am a very lucky woman.

What are your romantic memories?


  1. Awwww... great post. David and I don't have that kind of story. We were cowarkers on a small but tight management team for many years. The team often socialised out side of work. I was still married and he was in a long term relationship for the first 3 or 4 years that we knew each other, we both became single around the same time. We were both attending joanns daughters wedding and both had to rsvp as single for the first time. Pat says ... thats ok you'll just be each others date now until one of you gets involved. That was 7 or 8 years ago and here we are still being each others date until one of us decides to get involved. He is my best friend he fills a void in my life that was created when My family seperated, I don't know what we would do without each other and every day I remember to be grateful for how important we have become in each others lives.

  2. I'm so happy that you shared this! It made me smile. :)Sounds like you and David are committed commitment phobes :P. I can tell from your writings that the two of you are very important to each other.

  3. What a great post! My BF is a widower . I knew him before his wife passed as we used to work in the same facility. I hadn't seen him for almost a year when we ran into one another this Feb. and decided to have coffee. It was over 3 hours and neither one of us finished our java. Weve been together since. I sure hope he feels like I do.
