~~~    From the Editor      ~~~

I am sending this from Traveler’s Rest, South Carolina where Athena
and I volunteer each summer to organize and run a week long camp for
250 campers and staff.

I prepared this in advance.

Have a super week.  — Michael

I received an email from a lady a while back who had been with a
guy for 6 years and she questioned whether or not he was being
faithful to her. I told her how to find out and she soon discovered
he had been cheating on her (with multiple women) for almost the
entire relationship. She wasted 6 years of her life.

If you would like to know if someone is cheating on you, check out

~~~  Contest     ~~~

Last week’s contest was on voting for your favorite “Romantic
Surprises” stories.

There was a tie for first place.  Frumpy Jammies and Movie Magic
were the two winners.  They will each win a trip to the prize vault
as well as one person who voted whose name was drawn — David Hewitt
— actually David is a repeat winner.  The more you enter the weekly
contests, the more likely you are to win, and yes I allow you to win
multiple times.

Since I am away at summer camp up to my eyes in camp “stuff” there
is no contest this week.  I will resume it next week.

You can read the winning stories here:

TheRomantic.com’s ever growing PRIZE VAULT is filled with books,
several board games including Romantic Sensations, An Enchanting
Evening and others, CDs, dance lessons and other fun stuff at

Dinner and a movie is an ok date, but it certainly won’t impress
anyone.  For someone you are “courting” it is actually pretty lame.

Check out my suggestions of over 300 creative date night (or day)
ideas.  Most of them cost less than $20.  — Michael

A Gift To Remember
by Michael Webb
http://www.TheRomantic.com/

So you still don’t know what to buy for that special occasion.
Maybe it’s your honey’s 40th birthday or your 25th anniversary.
Here is a sure fire hit.

It takes a few weeks or maybe even a few months of planning ahead,
but the results will be no less than magical if you can pull it off.
What I am speaking of is a “This Is Your Life” kind of gift.  You
will need to secretly obtain as many addresses and phone numbers of
past and present friends, school mates, coworkers and family.
Sneaking through stashes of old letters and address books is one way
to obtain the contacts.  A better and perhaps less obtrusive way is
to recruit a close friend or relative of the honoree to help you
with your mission.

Either in a phone call, email or letter ask the people you contact
if they would please contribute something memorable toward the
upcoming special occasion.  It could be old photographs, a story,
something from a scrapbook or just a note of congratulations.  Also,
ask them to pass the word along to anyone who may have known the
person you will be honoring.

For secrecy you will need to have all the correspondence mailed to
you at a location where it will not be seen by you-know-who.  Have
it mailed to your work address or maybe your coconspirator will
agree to receive the mail.  People are notorious about being
procrastinators so it will probably be necessary to remind them a
week or two before the event to get the information to you, pronto.

Once you have received all the interesting tidbits you will have to
decide how to present them.  You can do them in the world-famous
“This Is Your Life” format with secret guests and a big production.
What is more realistic would be providing a scrapbook filled with
all the mementos and cards of congratulations.  It you want
something more dramatic like the “TIYL” format without all the work,
you can read the letters and notes one by one, building up the
suspense by not saying the contributor’s name until the end.  A nice
photo album or scrapbook could be given so the honoree can put in
all the pieces themselves.

If you know someone who is hard to shop for, this may just be the
perfect gift for that momentous milestone in their life.
