So what can I say about a special experience at a restaurant? Hmmm.
I think I would need to default to a small restaurant in St. Catharines, Ontario, where I had an amazing first date.
Almost seven years ago, I met a woman at my place of business. She approached me, as she wanted to get to know me further after having seen me on one of her previous visits.
Flattered, and very surprised at such a bold move, I accepted the offer. We exchanged information and scheduled our first date at “The Office,” an intimate little grill house on James Street. It was the setting for my greatest first date ever. We shared wine, good food and laughs, all night long.
Fast forward to February 2017, we returned to this very restaurant for her birthday celebration. This time it was my turn to surprise her. I asked her to be my wife. February 11, 2017, would mark the date that I proposed to my fiancée, six years after that magical evening we shared. For me, it all happened over the same meal that I ordered on our first date. Who would have thought?
