When I first met my husband, we planned on going out on a date together, so we could get to know each other a little bit better. We both lived in San Diego, CA. at the time, and we knew of a few places that would be perfect for a first date getting-to-know you type of arrangement. First, we went out to a public house type restaurant that I had visited before. I thought it would be great to visit, since there was a lot of variety and the food was always good.
We met on a Sunday night, since we were both off work. I got there first and got tables for us. Although San Diego, CA. gets busy often because it is a favorite tourist destination, it wasn’t busy now, so that was ideal for our meeting. My future-husband walked in about 10 minutes after I got there, which was perfect. We started talking and hit it off very well. I was a little shy, but he wasn’t a hard person to open up to. We had dinner, which for me was a veggie quesadilla. He had a steak and potatoes. Once we finished dinner, we decided to go somewhere and share a drink together.
First, we walked around downtown San Diego, CA. The city is very beautiful at night, with all kinds of lights and a beautiful beach front. Most people think that the city is plain compared to others in the area, but if you go during the night, you’ll find everything is lit up and walking around by the beach is even more beautiful than normal. We got to see the moon over the water, and I thought it was very pretty.
I remember during our first date we talked about so much. He told me about his family and life, what he did for work, and where he grew up, which was a state away. I told him about how I had lived elsewhere but ended up coming back here and was glad I did so. I remember we hit everything off very well, because before our first date was over, we were already planning a second date with one another. This time we decided we would head to some of our favorite places in the downtown area, and plan for a longer date so we’d spend more time with one another.
I knew there were a couple places in San Diego, CA that I wanted to have dinner at, so together we picked from the places I had mentioned. We also discussed going someplace where we would get a view of the waterfront and be able to relax. I knew then that we would want to go out on future dates and he did too. Today we are married, and I am so happy that we met and got to spend the rest of our lives with one another after our first date together.
