How I Met Your Father

A recap…
At the end of January of 2008 we had our first date. It was neither romantic nor sexy but it was truly memorable as His Sexiness showed his gentlemanly side.

The Monday after our first date was the day His Sexiness and I officially started dating. He arrived with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and stated the obvious in asking if we could be exclusive. I was thrilled!

A couple weeks later the international day of love arrived. I had been planning my present to him for days. I didn’t want to be too over-the-top and mushy considering we’d just started dating, and I also didn’t want to look like I didn’t put any thought into it. I decided to go with home-made vouchers with little gifts to go with them – a candle-lit home-cooked meal for two was attached to a couple of candles. I thought it was perfect and I couldn’t wait for him to open the goodie bag!

If I thought my present was thoughtful and wonderful, his present way outshone mine…

I was sent a very formal sms during the international day of love requesting my presence at his place that evening. I arrived on time but was told that I had to stay in my car in the parking lot as he wasn’t ready for me. I must have waited about five minutes but my nerves and excitement made those few minutes drag by!

When the time eventually came, I was told to drive around to the garden gate entrance to his flatlet where I was greeted by His Sexiness looking dashing in a suit, waistcoat and tie. I was led through the gate and into his small garden and that’s when I saw why he’d taken so long…

He had completely transformed his little covered patio! There were hundreds of lit tea-light candles on the edges of the walkway as well as surrounding the edges of the patio. There were two bean bags with a blanket spread in front of them and a bottle of wine was chilling in an ice bucket on the side. And hiding in the dim light, on top of a bean bag, were 14 long-stemmed red roses. I was poured a glass of wine and told to make myself comfortable while I waited for the next surprise. A few moments later I was served take-away dinner from my favourite restaurant (where we’d tried to remake as our first date). He made it even more special by ordering in the dishes we’d had that night. It was an amazing night and such an unforgettable present!
