Everyday Romance - Romantic Story: Romance & Memories
"My wife is a loving and caring woman. She's the type of
person who brings homemade soup & bread to sick friends.
She has always put a lot of thought into meals and into
our dates to try to make all of them memorable. I, on
the other hand, am uncomfortable with public displays
of affection and would rather just have a quiet evening
at home. Our friends have commented how different we are.
Sometimes I wonder how my wife and I ever connected in
the first place.
One day I gave in and decided to give this whole 'romantic
gesture' thing a shot. I went out and rented a convertible
and parked at the mall, where I knew my wife would be
coming out after shopping. When I spotted her I honked
the horn to get her attention, cruised up to her, and
invited her to hop in. She gamely jumped in, excited
about the adventure.
We drove around all afternoon. We took turns cruising past
local landmarks and visiting places we hadn't been to in
years. At dinner time, we spontaneously pulled up to the
closest restaurant we could find. It turned out to be one
of those "greasy-spoon" roadside diners, and dinner was
fun. My wife was like a teenager again. I haven't seen
her so flirty and happy in years. We ordered ice cream
to go from a waitress who couldn't stop smiling at us.
I'm not converted into a romantic, but I didn't realize
how happy these small gestures make my wife. I have
been trying hard to do more things like this."
