And can I just say that I have never met anyone this amazing in my life. We spent all night until 7 in the morning trying to find something we didn't have in common. It's like having a best friend and a boyfriend all rolled into one gorgeous man and VOILA! Perfect... We even eat our magnums the same way, which is saying something because I took years to develop that magnum-eating technique.
To a small venue in London... August 2007. I was on a summer art course that week, staying at a friend's in Kentish Town. It was a Wednesday and I was dragging my friends out to some obscure gig - a band I'd found on myspace. I'd spoken to one of the band members about getting on the guest list - no luck. But he was excited about having a fan and told me to say hi if I did turn up.
So we looked for the place for hours, and eventually got there about half and hour before they were on. I sang all the words to all the songs and at the end, approached the singer and asked for C. After a bit of awkward shuffling around he came and said hi. He was nervous, but so cute. We chatted, but then he had to leave, he was late for his train.
I watched him walk out the door, and just before he disappeared, he looked back. And there it was. That cupid's arrow that everyone talks about.
After that we exchanged messages & phone calls for a year and a half. We told each other everything. And then two weeks ago he came to see me and now we're together. Fairytale? Certainly feels like it.
No idea what I did to deserve this guy. All I know, is that he is for keeps.
