As a romance writer, I’m always interested in how people meet. I must admit as a girl I dreamed of meeting my Mr. Right at a dance. I envisioned him sweeping me onto to the dance floor, wrapping me in his arms and gazing into each others eyes. Sound familiar… a little like Cinderella, maybe a LOT like Cinderella.
Meeting my Mr. Right went nothing like that in real life. I lived in a very small town where there was a very small trucking company. He started working there. I noticed him, He noticed me. A mutual acquaintance introduced us.
Not quite the kismet meetings found in some romance stories. Maybe because of my personal experience when I write I like to keep the first meeting realistic, interested with a hint of attraction. As my story unfolds the attraction grows into real feelings of love.
That is why inspirational romances draw me as a reader and writer, attraction turns to genuine caring and the caring deepens into the kind of love that God intended for His children.
Of course, all couples have to meet before they begin their journey together…would you care to share your story with me by leaving a comment?
