A Romantic Evening With A Handsome Stranger
About a year ago, I watched The Secret for the first time.
I was very inspired by it, and so I immediately began to think about what I really wanted. I had about two weeks before I headed out on a solo excursion to Indonesia for three months, and so I decided that before I left, I would like to manifest a very romantic date.
I specifically asked to meet my ideal type, someone intelligent,sweet, interesting, tall, dark and handsome with brown eyes, who would take me out for coffee or a drink. I just wanted one date, and I wanted to have absorbing conversation with this person. I made this my intention and then forgot about it.
Literally a week later, I was sitting in a cafe reading a book for a course I was taking. Across from me was a gorgeous, dark-eyed young man- exactly my type. He almost immediately struck up a conversation with me. About five minutes into our conversation, he asked “Would you like to grab a drink with me? I know this great bar down the street from here.”
We ended up talking for hours. Then we went for a walk and ended up sitting on a park bench that was hidden from the street by an arch covered in ivy. At the end of the night, he kissed me under the stars.
Oh, did I mention he was a graduate student studying astronomy? : )
