Old School CourtingSo maybe I am a romantic, maybe I am not, I am not entirely sure but I have always wanted to do this. It is kind of ba
Briefly about their story: My mom and dad met in college. She was a freshman and he was a junior. My dad fell for my mom instantly and was in love with her for almost 2 years before he disclosed it. The feelings were reciprocated and they courted for 8 years while finishing their medical education before finally getting married. She was his first and only girlfriend and he was her first and only boyfriend. Just last year they celebrated 25 years of their marriage by taking a month long tour to Europe. That was me and my sister's gift to them.
Anyways when I see them, even though they have had rough patches, its always special. To my dad, my mom is till date the most important person in this world. To my mom, dad is #3(well in all fairness we are great kids :P). I told them when I saw them in December, I want something similar to what you guys had.
I want to meet her, the one special girl. And I slowly want to fall in love with her. I don't want anything to be rushed. I want it to be special in every way. I don't want to disclose my feelings to her right away. Neither do I want to know hers. I want our feelings to be a secret we both share ourselves. I want to have those restless nights where I know I will see her tomorrow and I don't have a clue of what to do. I want there to be subtle hints like maneuvering our schedules to just take a class together. Stealing glances in class while we think the other is not looking. I want to have the feeling of euphoria when I get a text/call from her. I want to spend time being dreamy eyed while my friends wonder what is going on. All this time only riding on hints.
And then when I would be somewhat convinced of how she feels I would disclose my feelings to her. After which I want to court her like a lover should in my opinion. I don't want to take her on dates to expensive restaurants and spend the evening seducing her. I want to take a walk with her and get to know her. I want to be silly with her and enjoy the small moments. I don't want it to be physical attraction, I need it to be emotional attraction. I want to have those small things like study dates, classroom dates, shopping dates, hairdressing dates etc. I would introduce her to my family and she would introduce me to hers. We would get close to each others families. We would get together to celebrate festivals as "kids" of the family. Then when we would be ready to take on the responsibility, I would first ask her family for permission and then propose to her. My ideal proposal..well I cant give it away but it would be simple yet elegant. I wont be flashy but it will be lovely. And I would hope she says "yes"
After which point we are supposed live happily ever after. Which does not mean life will be a breeze, but rather in case of a storm we stand together to face it, knowing we are there for each other no matter what.
Lol that just sounds ridiculous haha. But there, that would be somewhat my ideal love story. In my head it has a lot more to it.
