What is the most powerful symbol of romance?
I think a circle. You know how they say, your wedding ring is a symbol for the never ending love you have for one another. It's whole, it's complete, no beginning or end. Like fate I suppose, is destined and determined.
What would be your dream romantic gesture?
Candle lit evening, with dinner, drinks and a gorgeous view. Perhaps a massage, and spa pool. Basically a luxury package!
Share a love story.
My partner and I met when we were four years old, at the beginning of primary school. We were both born at the same small town birthing unit and raised as country kids in Kaipara flats. Scott was the only boy i had invited to my fifth birthday party. Bless him, he arrived, gave me a gift and left shortly after. I don't blame him, it was a girly party. I still remember the pink stationary set he got me. All through our school years we were friends and right through high school too. It wasn't until we were 16 that Scott suggested we "go out" together. I was unsure, but Scott says he had never been more sure of anything in his life. Even my parents convinced me that i was kidding myself; it was meant to be. We have been together nearly nine years and in that time have managed to buy a lovely little cottage together where we enjoy being wrapped up in one another's company; best of friends. Many tell us that our 'love story' is so special and unheard of - to me, I just enjoy spending my days with not only the love of my life, but my best and oldest friend too.
