We are all born for love. It is the principle of existence, and its only end. - Benjamin Disraeli
When was the last time you and your spouse went on a first date? Think. Was it a long, long time ago? Come on think. You have to remember. True to many people that they had butterflies in the stomach during the proverbial first date.
Alex and Nina are happily married for the past 26 years. Their first date happened 28 years ago. It was a simple dinner date on their favorite restaurant. Nina recalled that she was very nervous. She stayed in the mirror for two long hours checking for stray hair or crumpled dress. Her heart was beating so fast. After so many years she still feels quite nervous every time her husband asks her out.
Did you get a little nervous? Or anxious? Ever wonder why? I suppose your heart was beating faster, making a faint throb on your chest. You got nervous because you wanted to make sure that everything would turn out right. The date itself was important to you. You wanted it to be perfect.
Belle stammers when she is nervous. Shes also clumsy. Don asked her out for the first time to dine. She agreed. There on the restaurant happened the most unforgettable scene in her life. While theyre having dinner, she noticed that her hands were shaking violently. She tried to stay calm, but she cant. She then decided to go to the restroom in the middle of the dinner. To her haste, her heels got caught in the lacy tablecloth. The moments she stepped forward, the tablecloth and the rest of the food on top of it moved with her. The food was on the floor and the dinner was a complete mess. Don just looked at her in awe.
