Re: An Encounter at the Museum
Next to museums, my favorite place to visit would be art galleries. What
sort of romantic encounters could happen at an art gallery - say The

I love going to the museums to see all the beautiful pieces and to dream
about what it was like to live in that era all the love

I love walking the beach. So peaceful! I also love the mountains as I grew up surrounded by them.
(Michelle Schafer 3:10am March 1, 2013)
I enjoyed the drive in movies. You don't see those anymore. They can be very romantic.
(Kathleen Yohanna 3:39am March 1, 2013)
Love this, =) and Happy Friday!

I enjoy reading, and love to have the time to do it more often when I can.
(C Culp 5:28am March 1, 2013)
we walk on the beach any chance we get. I am most inspired in my home with my family around.

My most unusual date was not a real date. A friend, one I
happened to have a crush on, took me to dinner after a
football game our band had traveled to. He paid and we sat
alone and everything...but we weren't actually going out.
(Karin Anderson 6:39am March 1, 2013)
Along with my husband, who was then my boyfriend, we met a bunch of friends, some of whom had kids, in the Phoenix Park, Dublin. The rule was that we were having a Teddy Bear's Picnic so everyone including adults had to bring a teddy of some sort! We had a great time, took photos of all the kids and teddies together. Then we picked up our litter and went into Dublin Zoo for the afternoon, enjoying the breeding programmes for the Amur Tigers and so on. A wonderful day and great locations.
(Clare O'Beara 7:04am March 1, 2013)
My most unusual date was my first one. The guy asked me to go up to the Dairy Queen with him for some ice cream. Before I could say yes, my dad (who just happened to be listening) said, "why don't we all go together?" Smile.
(Brenda Rumsey 7:32am March 1, 2013)
my unusual date...first date, 17, and my dad told the boy, if you want to take her out again, you come with your hair shorter and please have shoes on... hee hee we were going to the beach with another couple..
(Rosemary Foley 8:26am March 1, 2013)
To show you how old I am, we went to the Laserium and saw a far-out Laser show set to rock and roll!

Most unusual place for a date? Hubby and I toured a dam...that's right, a dam. This book sounds great; I'm looking forward to reading it.
(G S Moch 9:54am March 1, 2013)
These are fabulous stories, ladies!
I actually met my Valiant Husband at a Halloween party. You can see why it's
now one of my favorite holidays! :-)

Fishing in a pond with my boyfriend (then 19) and his younger brothers (15, 5 & 3!). I spent all my time chasing the 3-year-old. We had a lot more fishing dates (because he loved to fish, and I loved being with him), but we never took the brothers with us, again. BTW, I married him, and we're still together 41 years later!
(Janie McGaugh 10:32am March 1, 2013)
The most special place I have ever been is The Hilltop Hotel. It sat high up on a cliff with a view you couldn't buy, right below was where two rivers converged. They had a path that lead to the point and walking out there, a train down below, the rivers - it was the most amazing place. Unfortunately due to winter storms 3 years back, the roof collapsed and it has sat abandoned in her glory since..slowly fighting the fading that is occurring to her. I discovered the place in high school and it became my "zen" place, I knew the staff, had my special table in the corner where I had an amazing 360 view - it is where I would spend a day writing in my journal, where "mental" health days were spent lingering away from work, where I discovered myself, spent my birthdays, and wanted to get married.

I met my boyfriemd when he was building a shed.
(Sandy Giden 11:11am March 1, 2013)
Well I met my husband on a blind date going canoeing so I guess on a river!
(Sue Galuska 11:16am March 1, 2013)
I remember once when my husband was my boyfriend and he had been gone for a few weeks on a family trip, we had to do his night job together. He was a janitor. We had a heated encounter in the janitor's closet. That was the strangest place ever to have a "date". As far as being inspired. Nothing inspires me more than seeing the ocean through an upper window of a lighthouse. I have done this just a few times, but it was so awesome and beautiful. I envy the lighthouse keepers!
(Sandy Fielder 11:25am March 1, 2013)
My husband proposed to me at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens - how's that for romantic?! But we love art galleries - and musueums, too. The book sounds fantastic. Thanks for the chance to win - but win or lose, I'll be getting this one to read. Great luck with it.
(Nancy Reynolds 12:04pm March 1, 2013)
I love museums and your book sounds great; I would love to win it.
(Nancy Wolfe 12:33pm March 1, 2013)
Inspiration for me... the beauty of Nature! Thanks for sharing ladies!

I love museums and look forward to reading this book
(Bonnie Capuano 1:14pm March 1, 2013)
Actually, it was at a museum in Boston, then we went to an
Italian restaurant for lunch afterwards.

One of my favorite date stories was actually told to me by my mother. When she was 15, she asked her father if this young man (my dad) could go with them to the beach. My grandfather said, "Absolutely not. Because if he tries something with you, he's a cad. And if he doesn't, he's an idiot. And I will not have a cad or an idiot for a son-in-law."
(Michelle Marcos 1:39pm March 1, 2013)
LOL - cannot remember the last time I was even on a date, it's been that long...but I, too, love Museums - if I am going to go somewhere, it's great to learn something while having fun!
(Felicia Ciaudelli 1:45pm March 1, 2013)
Museums are so fun. I love to visit many times, I usually
miss something the first couple of times.
(Mary Hay 2:48pm March 1, 2013)
I once went on a picnic in the snow on a date--it really surprised me.
(Sue Farrell 2:57pm March 1, 2013)
I love the beach and Scotland.....

I met my husband of 39 years at a wedding. He was Best Man and I was Maid-of-Honor. We were married about a year later.

i only love nude female beaches.
(Kent Cook 3:25pm March 1, 2013)
To his best friend's father's 50th birthday party. The dad got drunk, starting singing, and wanted to kiss all the girls. We left early.
(Kathy Sullivan 3:38pm March 1, 2013)
I met my husband of 46 years (and still counting) at church. I needed a ride home because it was raining and I had walked. Since he was the 'minister'son' I knew I would be safe---and I was!!
(Shirley Younger 3:55pm March 1, 2013)
I wouldn't say unusual but not normal for adults. Hubby and
I used to go on dates down the shore in the off season to
the arcades. We would go in our pockets jingling with
quarters and come out an hour or two later laughing and
carrying our cheesy prizes and our empty pockets. We would
then go get ice cream and sit on the benches and just watch
the waves crash.
(Melissa Robinson 3:56pm March 1, 2013)
LOVE YOUR BOOKS AND I WOULD LOVE TO WIN
(Shelly Caggiano 3:57pm March 1, 2013)
We drove our motorcycle to San Luis Obispo and took a blanket and slept on the beach. Was amazing.
(Vicki Hancock 4:10pm March 1, 2013)
It was on the sailboat coasting along Marina del Rey to Point Fermin Lighthouse before turning back. I realize that I fall hard for my fiance.
(Kai Wong 4:12pm March 1, 2013)
My now husband both enjoy the out of doors and our second date was spent walking in the woods at a state park. We now have our own little woods, and that is still an inspiration.
(Marjorie Carmony 4:21pm March 1, 2013)
Art Galaries are wonderful places next to musiums. My husband and I love to go when we are in different cities. Thank you...
(Diane Castiglione 4:35pm March 1, 2013)
THANKS FOR THE GIVEAWAY! I WOULD LIKE TO WIN!
(Shelley Summers 6:57pm March 1, 2013)
There was a period in my life when I regularly flew both in the U.S. and abroad. During that time, a number of very attractive men did their very best, while seated beside me, to lure me to change my travel plans to include them--offering to cover all my expenses. I must confess that I was sorely tempted, grievously tempted, and was startled when married couples and others close by encouraged them in their endeavors. I also have been inspired...almost...to accompany men just met in bakeries, art galleries, museums, and libraries.....simply the sexiest places for encounters in my myopic vision of such things! So, of course, having lived in London twice and married there, I would adore stories pivoted in the incomparable British Museum. Nonetheless, dear authors,.....please consider siting future tales in the National Portrait Gallery! Now the denouement: I met my spouse in a parking lot!
(Carla Schuller 9:13pm March 1, 2013)
I love reading, and spend at least 2 hours or more a day doing so :)
(Aimee Robison 10:27pm March 1, 2013)
I do remember a date where we wandered over a long span bridge
& back again. It was rather beautiful with the water &
(Mary Preston 7:04am March 2, 2013)
I hate to admit this but it has been so long since I've been
on a date or dating, well, it's just a blank! I'm so looking
forward to this anthology...it sounds so good.
(Karen Haas 8:06am March 2, 2013)
So exciting! My to-read list just got a looooot longer! Can't wait to read these upcoming books
(Heather Cathrall 9:28am March 2, 2013)
I can't think of any odd places I've gone on dates, but my ex and I used to
go to every museum we came across. Too many times, we stayed too late
or got there too late - we were "ran out" of several museums. ;)
(Kelli Jo Calvert 9:10pm March 2, 2013)
An Enconter at the Museum sounds like it's going to be so
much fun to read!
The most unusual place I ever fell in love was when I was
driving some friends from work to a Tupperware party and a
car kept passing us and then letting us pass and ended up
following us all the way to the party!
When we finally arrived and they got out of the car and
introduced themselves we found out that they were stationed
at the local Navy station and asked if we'd meet them when
we were done with the party. My friends agreed and since I
was the one driving I felt I had no choice but to go along.
When we met them later they "paired" off when two of the
sailors and the other sailor and I ended up talking while
they danced and I was so impressed with his personality and
kindness. This was during the war in Vietnam and they were
getting ready to be deployed once again and he asked me to
right to him.
Before the night was over I felt a kinship with him I'd
never experienced before and agreed to write to him. It was
through the letters that we shared that I fell madly in love
with him and three months after his deployment ended he
asked me to marry him! This year we celebrated our 43rd
You never know where you'll find love but it can happen in
the least expected times and places so follow your heart!
