A Dream Come True
After I broke up with my boyfriend, I had a dream about him that I had to share. In an email, I described what it was about -- us spontaneously driving from home in San Francisco straight to the Grand Canyon. I wrote about how I woke up smiling.
He wrote back and said, "What are you doing this weekend?"
Me: Nuthin' much :)
Him: How far is it to the Grand Canyon?
That was Wednesday. On Friday, he picked me up and we did it! Drove 16 hours through the desert in August and made it to the Grand Canyon. I'd never seen it before and when he walked me right up to the ledge, I couldn't breathe. We spent the next few hours, staring into the magical canyon together, cuddling and talking, then we went home. I still have a postcard from that night, and it always makes me smile.

My boyfriend cleaned my closet!
My room is always a disaster area. Then, I went to work one day, and came home to find all of my shoes and clothing arranged in an orderly way. My boyfriend had cleaned up, just to be nice. This may not sound as romantic as candy or flowers, but I couldn't help think, "This guy really loves me."

He Flew around the World for Me
When my boyfriend got a great job in Taiwan, we decided that I would move with him. I had a whole apartment in Los Angeles to pack up, so he left first, and I planned to meet him. It was a really scary time, getting ready to move halfway around the globe.
Then, one morning I got a surprise phone call. My boyfriend had come home to help with the move. He wanted to show me that he would travel across the world to be with me too. As soon as I heard his voice, I knew I'd made the right decision. Any fears I had were erased.
