It was love at first sight, really it was. I have scoured this continent for the better part of the last 15 years and have not yet found a city that romances me as much as you do. Sure, you showed up to our first date in your finest clothes, all that glorious sunshine and clear blue skies. I know there is a cloudier, wetter side of you. But really. Really, you are just so fine, I imagine I can handle your off days.
I like that you are so worldly and well-traveled. It’s a turn-on, yes. At every street corner I hear a symphony of Italian, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, French and German, feeding me authentic food from all over the world.
Is it true that I can have city and mountains and beach all together in one love affair? Is it true that you will take excellent care of me in sickness and in health?
