When one thinks “romance,” North Dakota is maybe not the first state that comes to mind.
But you can find romance at all levels of North Dakota society. From high school sweethearts to the courtship between an oil company and a mineral rights owner, beginning with flirtatious expectant caution, moving to one driving its tools deep inside the other and ending with an explosion and a pumping of liquids.
One reason North Dakota and romance are not often included in the same sentence is that people are just not aware of all the romance the state has to offer. When it comes to love, it’s not North Dakota, it’s Yesth Dakota!
