She reluctantly accepted and he swept her away to the beach in San Diego. You see they had started dating when they were incredibly young and, in the beginning, loved to go to concerts together. One of their first concerts was White Snake that he surprised her with in their youth. For this trip he was pulling out all the stops knowing this was probably his last chance to win her back and it was a “Hail Mary”, but he knew he had to try. She was and always had been the girl of his dreams. He desired to grow old with her and spoil the grandkids.
The weekend in San Diego he wined and dined her at some of their favorite restaurants. This was a very smart move as reminiscing can bring back some of the memories and butterflies you felt at the begging of the relationship. The big surprise was taking her to see White Snake in concert, one of their favorite 80’s rock bands.
In one weekend he melted her heart, and she chose to give their marriage another shot. She fell back in love with him, and they have now been married for over 30 years and are thriving all because of a surprise weekend getaway.
Can you see how impactful a surprise date can be? Need to add a little fuel to the fire to make it a surprise weekend.
Surprise dates are magical. They inspire us and make us feel alive with anticipation and appreciation. Don’t underestimate the power of surprise dates. If by chance you already have a good or great relationship you can still implement surprise dates as a preventative measure but it’s also a lot of fun to experience surprise dates with the love of your life.
