Complex but direct, open and genuine
Stereotypical "dates" rarely match their 'Hollywood" fantasy.
My ideal "date" I guess would be one that began way ahead of the meeting - even if we were married or living together. It would begin with the notion, the invitation, the time and place in mind, the preparation, the anticipation, the excitement of looking forward to being together, sharing whatever and wherever our date would be, and what it would entail.
For example, a "date" bushwalking or picnicking by a mountain stream, a lake or a coastal beach would be wonderful. As would an evening at the theatre.
And yes, touching, hand in hand, soul to soul, eyelid to eyelid, breath to breath, lost in the scent of a honeysuckle night or an hibiscus afte
oon... This would be would be ecstasy.

I'd want to share her romance as much as I'd wish her to share mine.
