updating house with half walls - Stratford dating

I take a moment to think about each one, wrenching the answers out of me.

People think you’re cynical but actually it’s a protective layer because you care so deeply you feel like you could break (me too). We sheepishly order one each and return to the menu to the attentive waiter.

We watch various dating scenarios “played out” by architectural models on our table. We’re told that the waiter himself was once a hopeful romantic, now on the brink of hopelessness and in the throes of desperation.

I meet you for the first time seconds before our first date begins. Soon I know about your past activism, about your family, how you feel about water (I feel the same). We’ve eaten every course before the starter was even ordered.

I knew A and I were in for a romantic weekend when we checked into our super-adorable suite to be greeted by a bottle of wine and 3 cake-pops!

What I remembered was tall green trees, beautiful white swans in the water, and delicious ice cream. When we arrived on Friday afternoon outside The Parlour Inn, our hotel for the weekend, our eyes twinkled. If you place us in a historic place, we will absorb it all, and we could feel this city had something to offer as soon as we drove into the downtown ‘hood.
