To choose my most romantic experience isn't easy. There are so many... To make a choice I'll share the story of a very special night long time ago. At the time I was volunteering in a clubhouse/discotheque. I worked in the cloakroom, collected empty glasses and helped behind the bar. My free time I spent next to the DJ corner, especially when my favourite DJ was there... I had fallen in love with him instantly, but never told him. We talked about a lot of things, sometimes flirty, sometimes about serious matters, always interesting. We just had that click together. That evening I felt the tension mounting. We danced a few times. My heart was working overtime, I felt flirty and shy at the same time. After closing time the volunteers stayed to clean and have a drink together. One by one everyone disappeared. There were only a few people left when I went to the bathroom. When I came back the lights were dimmed, slow music was playing and we were alone. I stood at the doorstep and hesitated. He walked towards me and looked me in the eyes. My knees were trembling. He smiled, took me by the hand and led me to the dance-floor. We danced closely together. His breath warmed my neck, singing softly in my ear. The feeling of his body against mine felt so good, so right. We danced for minutes, hours... I couldn't tell, I lost track of time. Exasperatingly slow our heads moved towards each other and our lips touched. I had kissed before but never like that. We caressed each other. He looked at me and asked me without words. I answered willingly and we left the dance-floor hand in hand. He laid me down very carefully and I made love for the first time. It was beautiful, he was very gentle. We were so good together. Afterwards he walked me to my (parents') home, close together in the dark and quiet night. A wonderful experience that I'll cherish forever...

Romance is important to me in a relationship. It is the icing on the cake! It doesn't have to be big and impressive; the little things count. Romance has to do with care and attention, the feeling of being loved. An unexpected little present or gesture "just because I love you" always speaks to my heart... A note saying "I miss you already" in my suitcase... I have nothing to complain with Ron, he's my romantic hero! A candlelight dinner for just the two of us may be cliché, but that's because it is so romantic! The same goes for a walk on the beach during sunset or sunrise.

When I'm in the mood I love romantic movies like Ghost or Pretty Woman. I read literature, non-fiction, in fact everything with letters! ;-) From time to time I want to relax with romance novels. The link leads you to a wide variety of romance novels in many genres, really worth checking out! I especially like historical and supernatural themes or a combination of both. There has to be more to it than boy-meets-girl and other predictable stuff. I like a good plot, a real story. The blogosphere broadened my horizon too, I've met some great romantic writers. They've written enough to keep me busy for quite some time!


  1. I am surprised that this post didn't get any comments. I really enjoyed reading this real life love story. I do have a question. I'm assuming that Ron is your husband. Is he also the DJ that you fell in love with at the clubhouse/discotheque?

  2. Thanks Malcolm!
    Ron is my husband, but he's not that DJ. :-)

  3. Wow. What a wonderful post. I am without words but would hug you if you were here.

    I love your blog, Tink - I always look forward to coming here.

  4. what a beautiful story! thank you for sharing it! p.s. read the 'Outlander' series by Diana Gabaldon for a way cool historical romance
