Reader Valentine’s Day Love Story: Mr. Nice Guy

We asked you to send us stories about your best and worst Valentine’s Day. After the jump, Eddie tells about he impressed (and surprised) his lady with a home cooked meal.

On the second Valentine’s Day we celebrated since moving in together, she came home expecting to be taken out for dinner. Instead, I’d prepared a cucumber salad the night before and picked up lobster and cheese cake on the way home. I put on some soft music, chilled champagne, made a fire, and put out flowers and a card. Everything was in place when she got there. Suffice to say it was a complete success. We’ll be going out for dinner this time after 21 years together. I’m a very lucky man. – Eddie Alexander
