Most Romantic moments in life


  1. Post your most romantic experiences you encounter in your life...
    As for me the most romantic experiences were 3 years ago in NZ, where i met a person(Mike) whom i like so much and he knew i like him, and he likes me too my friends arranged a weekend out in the forest near a lake, and boyfriends and girlfriends were invited, my friends invited me to go but i can't because i don't have a boyfriemd at that time, but they insisted and i went. When i arrived there, Mike was there too, and i found out later that Mike arranged this weekend outing. Boy , i fell in love.
    But now i left NZ and lost touch, he's gone back to his country probably......
    well tell us your romantic experiences....

    Don't know if it's romantic, but, this weekend made the connection between Darren (my fiance) and I stronger. My grandfather passed away last tuesday and Darren went with me to the funeral 5hrs away. We went to the visitation and it was all I could do to keep from crying.....you see, there were a lot of relatives around that I hadn't seen for a long time and I didn't want to 'lose it'.
    That evening I was just feeling sad. I started to cry and Darren held & cuddled me until I was done bawling. We talked some, but, the fact that he was there for me meant the most. I was reminded again why I love him so much.

    He is a sensitive and wonderful person.

    Jayna, I didn't answer your post at first, because I'm over 50 and trying to sort out the "most romantic experiences" in my life covers a lot of ground. I've been married 27 years, and my husband still brings me flowers at irregular intervals (less frequently now that he isn't driving becuase of MS and the kids aren't right here to do his bidding for him), cooks me wonderful gourmet meals frequently (served in front of TV instead of by candle light these days), still believes in candle light in the bedroom when I'm not working nights and we are both rested (not often enough lately) ; etc. I can't remember the most romantic experiences we had when we were younger-- there's been a lot of water under the bridge since then!!!!!
    I personally think that romance is something that should continue for a lifetime and although it may change (from long walks on the beach at sunset; to cuddling next to each other while reading the Sunday paper; - or whatever).
    I once knew a couple who'd been married 75 years, and the husband could still make the wife blush and flush with love. He still would give (or leave) her love notes when he was leaving the house to do chores -he was 96 at the time!!. That's very romantic; especially after all of those years!

    For our 25th wedding anniversary last year, my husband took a day off from work (a Wednesday!) and drove me to Philadelphia's 5 star Le Bec Fin restaurant for lunch. We had a champagne toast and enjoyed the meal. As we returned home, I got sick as the car pulled into the driveway..... he had to clean the car seats. Our children gave us Diablo 2 video game for our present. Jim's father passed out on our wedding day after we had just said our vowels and was hospitalized for a week. Wonder what romantic event will occur on our Fiftieth.

    Think I have enjoyed the most, the romantic gift I requested from my sons on Valentines day several years ago..... a hand-held dustbuster.....still works.

    Seriously, flowers are mostly what my sons get me to plant in my perennial garden for Mothers and Easter Day. All other occasions, I receive Napier jewlery found at Boscov's from all three men. Anyone in need of rhinestone dangling earings?? I now have six spare pairs, LOL.

    Candles and perfume, forget it....husband can't smell. Back rubs make him itch HOWEVER I'd give him my ENTIRE WEEKS paycheck for one of his " football team" massages.....don't know what I will do if anything happens to my personal masseuse.

    outside of my current booty, actually one of my recent dates was really nice. i don't have anything going romantic with this guy(just not my type) but a surg-tech who shall remain nameless took me to dinner then we went driving through magnolia (a neighborhood in seattle) stopped off at a park overlooking the puget sound and then out to coffee. what i really loved about it was the fact that it was just that, a date. the art of courting felt pretty damn good. we went out on a second date in the hoh (it's a rain forrest on the olympic peninsula) i guess things didn't progress after that because we're both staunchly opinionated about stuff related to work, and that drove me a little nuts. but i really enjoyed that first date!

    Many, many, many...over coffee, my stories could go on for hours! Here's one, though...

    After lamenting to my circle of very frustrated girlfriends about the lack of gentlemen in our geographic area, and secretly planning to run away to Britain, where, in my mind at least, the men are not only gentle and polite, but dashingly handsome and charmingly witty, I reluctantly agreed to go on a blind date with a man who I'd only spoken to over the phone. He arrived at my home on time....I was standing on the front step freaking out...and he drove right past my house and down the street. I decided that he'd seen me and reconsidered. Devastated, I figured I'd just wait to be sure. Here comes his car again...slowing down...sloooooowing....slooooooooooowing...taking off down the street and speeding up. I started to laugh hysterically, thinking, 'Jesus, give me a CHANCE!'. In the middle of my breakdown (tears now streaming down my face because I was laughing so hard), I didn't notice that he'd returned a third time and was now parked at the front of the house, staring at me. He got out of the car with a foolish grin on his face and said hello as I tried to explain why I was laughing so hard. He blushed and there was a moment of silence as we both finally took a look at each other. Whoa. The chemistry was palpable. He admitted that though he hadn't seen me, he'd been afraid that I wouldn't like him once we met, and he'd had to force himself to come back and take the risk. He walked me to the car, and opened the door for me. Alright, it was gentlemanly, but it could have been a fluke. We drove in near-silence to the restaurant. He opened the car door for me again. Alright, twice, but no win just yet. As we walked towards the door, he opened it with one arm and with the other, gently placed his hand on the small of my back to escort me in. That's it. I just about melted right then and there. We were married 3 years later. Today, he won't pick up his clothes off the floor, but he still holds my hand everywhere we go. I'm not complaining about either one. ;>)

    Walking into the apartment after a long, hard day at work to find that my husband had cleaned the entire place. Aaaah! Heaven!
    I know it doesn't sound romantic, but it sure made my day!

    Rileycat - I have a similar one! It's not the MOST romantic at all, but it's certainly up there! I went on a trip for a week with my family, when I came home my boyfriend had bought a dustbuster and cleaned his place from top to bottom! He even wiped off the mirrors and cleaned out the drawers (both of which are things he still doesn't understand the purpose of doing). I swear the place looked like a hotel room... Too bad he's never done it again. Maybe I should go away for a while - it's looking kinda dingy around here....

    My husband is a terrific husband and father to our three sons. My sweety grew up very poor in the fianaces area of life so he really isn't into "material things" too much. He is pretty satisfied with what he has no matter what. Anyway, a couple years ago at Christmas he did something truly romantic. Starting on December 13th that year, I got a present every day. The first day it was something small, a keychain. Then the next day it was something a little bigger and costly. When Christmas Day finally came, the "big" present was a picture of an eagle looking over the mountain tops. At the bottom of the picture was a favorite Bible verse of mine. All the planning my husband did to pull this off (including keeping our sons quiet for almost 2 weeks) was really special to me. For that Christmas, I got a Bible (which I will have for years hopefully) and a beautiful picture that will last me a lifetime. What a great topic!! (Especially with all the horrific events that have occurred the past 2 months)!!!

    There have been many things my husband has done for me.....cooked candlelight dinner......baths by candlelight......cleaning for me.......forcing to me go out when I need to get away.........We had notebooks that we would write notes to one another in and then exchange books every other day....we would then write responses to each other. We go for long periods without doing romantic things, but every night he fixes the bed and pulls the covers back for me........he also makes sure I have a cup of water by the bed in case I am thirsty.......this shows what I mean to him and shows how much he loves me....wouldn't trade him for anything!!!!!

    Speaking of romantic...........My boyfriend Steve is the most considerate, gentle, generous and loving guy in the world. Everyday is romantic with him.

    The romance has just begun..........we have only been together for 2 and a half years. He is a great cook, (which is great since I hate cooking). He has made picnics for us, he makes me lunches and suppers for work usually with a cute note.

    He wrote me a song for my 23rd birthday and sang it to me while playing his guitar. He makes special occasions very special, he always goes all out, not with expensive things, just thoughtful things.

    Valentines day last year, he designed a book (artsy and all!) with pictures and written memories of us.......broken down into sections "our friends" "our families" etc. and my birthday song was written at the back.

    If this keeps up, I will be a VERY lucky woman!!!!!!! He's cute too!!!!!!!!!
