Manuel Banda lives in Dallas, Texas. Here is his Romantic Wish:

I was in Rome this past summer as part of a study abroad program with my university. Leaving the usually busy Piazza del Popolo near midnight, I hear a violinist start to play in the distance. A man knelt at the bottom of the stairs in the center of the piazza looking up at, who I assume was, his girlfriend and opened a small box. She threw her hands in her face, then around his neck, kissed him for a long time and finally shared a slow dance with him. This is the most romantic moment I have ever seen; it was as if the piazza and city knew what was taking place and paused momentarily for them. I wish to recreate it, but now I want to be at the bottom of the steps looking up at my girlfriend instead of being a bystander.

Lauren Dixon lives in Austin, Texas. Here’s her Romantic Wish:

The person who has been by my side through happiness and hardship is my prince charming. My devoted boyfriend has not given up on me during tough times. When my mother died of cancer two years ago, I felt a piece of my heart break off and I never imagined I would be able to feel truly happy again, until my amazing boyfriend reminded me of her strength and love. He allowed me to see the light in a dark situation when he told me he wanted to grow old with me just as my dad did with my mother. My romantic wish is to be as happy and in love as my parents were until the day she died. I wish I could live long enough to have a faithful marriage, see my children grow up and fall in love, and be able to watch it all with the person I have spent the last seven years of my life with. I want my mother’s unconditional love to live on through my relationship.

Lauren Jacobsen lives in Dallas, Texas. Here’s her Romantic Wish:

Ring. Ring. Ring.

There goes the telephone again. When will it ever be a soft good morning whispered in the ear instead of the cold, electronic sounds of a standard ringtone? It has been months since we have seen one another’s face, but such is the life of broke college students living in different cities, each chasing their own dream. In the short breaks from our academia, we can trust that the other is waiting, but those breaks are few and far between.

Our wish comes in the form of a dream, one that reoccurs nightly. A dream of escaping student debts and societal pressures. We yearn to travel and experience what this world has to offer us. Young American Muslims are not meant to fall in love, but rather are destined to cold, arranged marriages, right? Wrong. The love of my fiance, despite the distance, debt, and disapproval is worth waking up to the electronic sounds. Our dream of escaping these disadvantages of our current situation gets us through the exams, bills, and incessant reminders from society that there is no such thing as an American Muslim, and much less two that are madly in love.
