My girlfriend Sarah requested that I write this prompt about my perfect romantic date describing the scene, setting, and person – she said the “person” better be her … and of course, it is. I was just asking if this was fictional or something that we could actually do.
Sarah said it was something real, but I could describe the perfect romantic date on an unlimited budget, so … not real but real. Got it!
If I had to start, and in a pre-COVID-19 world, it would be on top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. It’s a dream spot – for tourists – but it just feels so romantic, especially when eating at the Jules Verne, a restaurant on the second platform of the tower, on a candle-lit warm summer night with live background music.
They always want live music at the table; that seems obnoxious.
We would dress as if we were on the next James Bond film set, or if that’s just too much work, pajamas are terrific also, considering that we rented out the restaurant for the whole night. So, who cares what we look like – although the french might not be happy with our fashion sense.
Then we go on a random walk around Paris exploring, talking with passerbyers, and stopping by shops. I would be taking photos, and Sarah would be laughing because she doesn’t want her picture taken while in her PJs. I take the pictures anyways.
Soon morning comes, and a private limo waits for us at the Paris Marriott Champs Elysees Hotel, where we stayed, to take us to the Aerfun Paris balloon ride to watch the sunrise. We would kiss and smile.
Then Sarah would say, “Dylan, I love you, but I don’t want to die up here.” I would laugh and then shake the hot air balloon. (Good times ….)
The rest of the day is room service and a whole lot of classic movies.
So, it’s a bit much and quite pricey, but it’s really real/not real, and it sounds pretty cool, at least for people into those sort of things.
Below, describe your perfect romantic date, and feel free to set up your own parameters. Make it fun and be creative!
