Everyday Romance - Romantic Story: Romantic Notes

"I work as a restaurant server. Over the last year, a customer named Hank has been coming in regularly. He's quiet and attractive and a good tipper. He occasionally comes alone but mostly eats with his friends. After a few rounds of drinks, they joke around with me but Hank always makes sure they never cross the line.

When it comes time to pay the bill, Hank always writes something on the back. At first he wrote simple stuff like, "Thanks" or "Great meal". Occasionally he throws in a compliment like, "I like your new haircut." These ones usually catch me off guard and I wonder why he doesn't just say it to me instead of writing them on the bill. But it always makes me smile.

A few months ago, he and his friends came by as usual. Things went along as they usually do, but when it came time to pay the bill, he wrote, "Dinner was great! How about dessert?". Clueless, I grabbed a menu.

I returned to the table and he was the only one left sitting at his table. I started to hand him the dessert menu but he smiled and stopped me - then asked if I'd be interested in joining him for dessert after my shift! We've been dating now for nearly 4 months and it's been great."
