No More First Dates

Our first telephone conversation:

Him: “Would you like to meet for lunch?”

Me: “Sure, that sounds good.” (Lunch for a first date is a good idea. After an hour, I’d have to get back to work)

Him: “How about this coming Monday?”

Me: “What are you, crazy?”


(Oops. I should explain)

Me: “I mean, this Monday is Valentine’s Day. That’s a lot of pressure for a first date.”

Him: “Would Friday be better for you?”

Me: “Yeah, Friday works.”

And so we met for lunch on the Friday after Valentine’s Day. No pressure. And this time, after countless bad dates and failed relationships, this time it took. Twenty years after that first date, each day is (still) Valentine’s Day with him.

To quote ski guru Warren Miller, and that movie No Strings Attached………a date on Valentine’s day; ” Go big, or go home!” I’m glad it worked out for you M!

Happy Valentine’s and wish you many more with you sweet hubby.

Aw, how sweet! Happy Anniversary and many, many more 🙂

I love this! And what a lovely picture of your lovely man. So glad you’re finished with first dates. 😉
