“I remembered what one of my nurse friend's said to me as I left the hospital, ‘he will crush you!’”
My nurse co-worker set up the blind date with her cousin from Pennsylvania. I just broke up with a guy I was dating and decided to go out with her cousin. I really didn’t think that it would go anywhere, so I was very relaxed and just figured it was just a night out. I left my 3-11 shift, and proceeded to the hospital parking lot to meet my date. I first saw a guy with two dogs, and thought this will be a different date! I then looked to my left and saw my date, he was tall and very muscular. I remembered what one of my nurse friend’s said to me as I left the hospital,”he will crush you!” I figured it was going to be a guy who would just hurt me, and dump me, as most of the guys did. We went to a jazz bar and had drinks, I had many! We both just kept talking and laughing, and I really did not think he would ever want to see me again! I went back to work, and my co-worker said “Linda he really likes you!” I was like shocked! I did not believe her and I gave him the cold shoulder for a while. After many sweet cards, phone calls, and flowers, I decided to give this relationship a chance. We have been married now for 38 years! I am the luckiest girl in the world, he has been a friend, great husband, and a wonderful father!
