Still Dating

Updated: Apr 8, 2023



Kirk and I met 30 years ago this week – on a blind date. We've been together ever since. If I'm being honest, I wasn't looking for a lifetime commitment – just dinner - and I was none too sure about that, and he wasn't either.

So how did two "set-up" people, with such low expectations, end up here 30 years later? He felt like home. He was warm and inviting, the conversation was easy, and laughter affluent. He was the "knowing" I'd found the someone for whom I wasn't looking.

Our dating adventure has led us to marriage, two children, and two grandchildren. We've lived in different countries, a few cul-de-sacs', a city, the woods, on an ocean, a lake, and now a farm.

I could tell you all the cliché things that have kept us together. You know – lots of work, sacrifice, trust, forgiveness… but Kirk summed it up yesterday as we were standing on a street outside a shop in Gatlinburg. He gave me a quick squeeze and said, "We're still dating." That's the key – find someone who feels like home and date them for the rest of your life.

As closeness makes between the two Discreet Relationships people, more self-disclosure emerges, both verbally and nonverbally as couples act in habits that are more like the way in which they are in their everyday daily practice.
