Our Road To Marriage…
I’d love to say we went for a couple of dates and ‘got to know’ each other, but that wasn’t the case.
In fact the first time we spoke she already thought she knew a lot about me!
This is probably because of my ex girlfriend.
[aside title=”Control the sighs…”][/aside]
In fact before my now partner knew me she was under the impression I was a monster.
This is because (stereotypes behold) my ex partner was living with her.
There’s a part of me that wants to tell you the truth about my ex (
liar, a thief, a cheat, deluded individual) but this may start to sound like the end credits of the breakfast club…!
So after having to sort out a second life I was unaware of (fabricated by said ex), myself and my-soon-partner-to-be decided to meet!
Never in my life did I think we’d actually do this because when she first messaged me she thought I was a lunatic. I really don’t know what possessed me to meet her, the fact I was seeing someone else didn’t even help.
But I bet we all know that itchy feet feeling when you just know you’ll regret it if you don’t do it. (Disclaimer and willing to pinky promise on it: I never cheated on my partner at the time and I was mature enough to call the relationship to an end when I realised I only ever saw her as a friend)
So after all the hinting (mostly hers) we set a date to meet.
I can honestly say I think I’d rather have taken the idea of the spoon into the Dragons den – it would have been a hell of a lot less anxious!
So being a typical woman I had no idea what to wear when it came to the day hours of pondering and having to redo my make-up because I managed to sweat it all off…!
In the end I chose black skinny jeans, a polo t-shirt and a pirates captain hat – I must explain the hat to you one day…
Outfit ready, make up on and it was on the green mile to the train station, in broad day light.. looking like I just escaped the local nutter’s house…
And frankly, that’s where our story started…
