Agree with above posts to not push this so hard. It all sounds very controlled. The speed of the courtship here and your thoroughness makes me worry that this is an intellectual problem that you are trying to solve (how to declare love/be in love in 15 well-articulated steps) rather than a natural outpouring of emotion. Check your internal gauges here and make sure that this isn't just something that you want to have happen in general, with this girl as a useful stand-in for this role. Should you come up for air and say 'Yep, she's the one', I'd still hold off a bit. Globe is dead-on -> women fantasize about the storybook courtship, but tend to actually respond to something close to the opposite. As with the others, I think that this is a great, thoughtful date (timing the sunset is where it all gets a little military for me, but more power to you), but I would definitely hold off on dropping the 'L' word. If the date goes as smoothly as you've envisioned, she may do the work for you. Then all you'd have to do would be reciprocate!
