Think back to when you first started dating your current partner, or, if you are single, your last partner. What was the thing that drew you to him/her? When you thought to yourself, “This could really be something,” what sparked the thought?
For me, it was conversation. On our first date, the boy and I talked for three hours. That’s an incredibly long time for me to talk to someone who was just one step beyond stranger. On the second date, the boy and I talked for two hours and only stopped because I had to be somewhere else. The pattern kept repeating. It made me much more inclined to lower the barriers a bit than a set of pretty eyes would have (though his eyes are very pretty). It still took me a while, of course, to be fully on board with the concept of dating, but being able to really talk to him was a gift. It still is!
