flower. I loved the simplicity, I thought it was classy.”

Flattery will get you everywhere

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
“On our third date, my date told me that he misses me while I am gone and that he thinks about the next time he will talk to me.”
—Learntofly2006, Seattle-Tacoma, WA

and told me that she just had the most incredible evening ever. I thought that was sweet considering we really didn’t do much aside from talk.”

When gas is good…
“This may sound strange, but he brought me small gas cans. He was coming over to go out on the lake in my boat that evening. I’d mentioned I’d need help hoisting the five-gallon gas can to add fuel to the boat. When he came over, he brought two 2.5-gallon gas cans, full of gas, for me. Those I could manage without help! I thought that was incredibly thoughtful of him, hearing the problem and solving it for me.”

Twice is the charm
“She said (twice) that I look much younger than my age (40).”
—Anthony_Xmasbaby, New York, NY

A for effort
“The sweetest thing ever done for me occurred on a second date with a gentleman I really liked. He knew that my heritage is Irish, and my favorite color was orange, so he brought me the most beautiful orange rose, and had hand written a letter in Gaelic. It made my heart melt, and we’ve been together ever since.”
—Tainteddream5882, Kansas City, MO-KS

“He said that he felt like he won the lottery by meeting me.”
