One of the first times I went out with the man who was to become my husband, we took the train into Chicago, had lunch, went to Grant Park, down to the lake, then walked down to Navy Pier, then back through the loop to the train station, talking and laughing the whole way. What a great day!

The best date I ever had was with my then-boyfriend (now my husband) who wanted to be romantic and took me to a park in the suburbs for a long walk. We started off and it was warm and humid, and out of nowhere came a rain shower. We both ran for cover under a tree, but it didn't cover much, so we were soaked. We gave up trying to stay dry and decided to just enjoy the rain. We walked and talked, and kissed under the raindrops. Messy, but a wonderful, casual time had by both of us!

Some friends and I would hang out at a bar after work on Fridays. We'd shoot darts, play pool... Then one night, one of the guys asked me out for the next night. I already had plans but invited him along. So our first official date was going to haunted houses with my 3 sisters and 3 girl cousins. It was a lot of fun, but NOT very romantic. I knew then he was a keeper! 20 years later, 4 boys of our own, and I was right! :)
