Just recently, I began to notice that I have developed a 'not so innocent' attraction to firemen. I'm not sure if it's the broad shoulders, the blue shirts or the fact that they run into burning buildings to save people's lives.
I think it's safe to say that dating a fireman has long been a fantasy for many women...I just joined the party a little late.

Alas...as is typical with my luck, I have recently discovered that he is a married man. Doesn't it just figure?
