Okay, this is the reason I have been away....bad, I know! :toothy:

I haven't been around much lately because I met this wonderful guy...who I was pushing away. So for the last month, I have been soul searching and trying to work out some of my issues. And I finally let go of my fears, mistrust and hurt and realized that I have feelings for this man.

He is soooooooo wonderful and romantic. He is away a lot....usually two weeks out of the month...so we are always emailing each other, little phone calls etc. I like my time alone though too, so having him away is okay...I told myself I didn't want to lose my independence with him, the way I did with my past relationship.

When he came back on Saturday night...I went to his place after work...on the door was a single red rose. When I opened the door....there are stairs (he lives in a downstairs apartment)...he had candles on both sides of the steps on each step with rose petals.....leading through the kitchen to his bedroom. Everything else was dark. Classical music (Pachelbel which we love) was playing softly. In his bedroom, was a huge gift bag with tissue paper all decorated with Easter stuff. Behind me I heard a voice...he was sitting in the dark on the couch in the living room (watching my reaction) he was wearing a white button down dress shirt, black dress pants and a red tie.....very handsome. He had two glasses of red wine for us ready. He then told me to read what was on the computer screen....I will share just the beginning so you have an idea what beautiful poetry he writes:
My Love and Affection

The Candles are the light that you bring into my day.
The Rose petals are the path as you show me the way.
The Red Wine is the love for you that pumps through my veins
The Music is your voice that steals the pain.
This is what you are to me.
And what you'll always be.
He then proceeded to express some very deep emotions in a long beautiful letter I will cherish for the rest of my days.

How could I not fall in love?
I remember Daphne posting "what your most romantic date was" and this was mine.:hearts:

He sounds wonderful! I'm so happy for you! Do you think he'd give lessons in romance to my hubby??? I love my man, but he is a little weak in putting much thought into a "romantic evening". LOL! Not that I'd ever trade him for anyone else though. He's mine and I know that God made him just for me!:angel:

Thanks everyone...I realize how lucky I am...the other day he said let's go out and get a book on dating...so we went to the bookstore and he bought 10 000 ways to say I love you...and it has all kinds of romantic ideas....he is just so wonderful. We laugh together and are great friends, but the romance in this guy is UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Theresa....I will lay odds that your man is one of the "QUIET/NICE" guys! I have one and they are THE MOST ROMANTIC of men...sigh

It's nice to know there are other women in this world who are loved by romantic men! ENJOY;)
