Sitting by the river, the girl moves a bit closer to me as she begins to speak:
“Oh Andreas, isn’t this the most beautiful sunset? I am so glad we came here to enjoy this moment together.”
We both continue to stare into the distance, most likely harboring similar thoughts.
But then I cannot resist:
“Honey, it’s actually not a sunset. The sun doesn’t set or rise. We are the ones moving, as our planet orbits around the sun and rotates around its own axis. This creates the impression of the sun moving, when in reality it is the fixed point in our solar system.”
Another pause, after which I add, maybe with too much hauteur in my voice:
“But I thought everybody knew that.”
A few seconds pass before she looks at me with sad eyes, gets up and walks away, never to be seen or heard of again.
These stupid sunsets ruin everything.
- More romantic stories.
- And many more sunsets.
- This story also appeared in Medium.

You should mention the“ moonshine“ and explain that….you will probably get faceslapped on top.Just in case you need a memory of some sort of a burning sensation
Thank you, good idea!
But I never get dates that late at night anyway. There is this rumor that I am dangerous. Also, I like to sleep early.
HA! Now that is some funny stuff.
I never doubted that it was true. It had the ring of truth to it, but is told with a dry and intelligent hilarity. Very good stuff.
Stupid sunsets! :D
Too much intellect for your own good, same goes for me. Makes it hard to appreciate things for what it is.
Most women are dumb.
That’s a dumb comment.
It’s not you, it’s the locations you pick for your dates… next time try museums, libraries or bookstores :))
Finally some useful advice. Thank you!

Mr.Obvious on the rescue!😂 its not your fault mate…its just the nature doing its thing!:)))
“Mr Obvious” would be a good superhero name for me.
You should really think changing you status now on!
I will look for a tailor to make a cape.
I remember our second date
Just knowing that fills me with romantic joy that I had thought impossible until now.
Jajaja.. En serio admiro tu sentido de humor Andreas. Estoy casi segura que sí una señorita le dice que siente “mariposas en el estomago” cada vez que está junto a usted. Usted se pone analizar en silencio , cómo es que esos lepidopteros ingresaron a su estómago … jajajajaja ( broma) hay momentos en la vida que sólo hay que sentir y no analizar tanto 😃😃
La gente en Perú también come mariposas?
Una cita interesante… lindo paisaje + datos curiosos
I would say: yes, you are right. But I know something. We will die (not soon…I hope) and let’s enjoy its colors
“People die every day,” I would reply, matter-of-factly.
Yes. 🙃 born to die
It’s exactly what I would expect from a German man.
I won’t even deny it!! Lol 😂 especially not to a lawyer
Although, your comment could have lead to a great conversation…still, it’s humorous that she just got up and left!!! Lol
This is why German is not a romance language
Podría explicar lo mismo en espanol.
el lenguaje representa la cultura!
el alemán también tiene su propio encanto…
Ich stimme das völig zu aber ich bin auch eine Racist!!!
hahahahaha eterno disfrute de primeras citas
De todas maneras, así la vida es más interesante.
Hasta las primeras citas pueden ser rutinarias, eso depende de ti la verdad
Clearly she was not the right girl for you!
Jajaja jajajajaja a pesar de la explicación científica, sigue siendo conocido comúnmente como atardecer😝😝😝😝
I have had a similar experience, my date and I were contemplating the stars, which had burnt out millions of years ago, ..The chaos that is the universe, how destruction is just part of life, et cetera…how the dream of peace on earth is impossible. Things got so gloomy, we had to make out to do something life affirming. Worked for me :P
I am glad you found the strength and creativity to overcome that depressive phase!
