How We Met
Paul and I met “the modern way” via the Bumble dating app – it’s a romance that nearly never happened! When we were due to have our first date, I accidentally locked myself out of my flat, and had to wait for my landlord to bring spare keys so I was forced to cancel on Paul at the last-minute when he was already on his way!
Fortunately, he saw the funny side; both of us were pretty flexible and met the next day. I’ll never forget the beaming smile on his face as I walked into the pub in Greenwich – it’s forever etched in my mind, and really epitomises the person that he is – a smiley, lovely man.
On the other hand Paul will never forget (and often reminds me), of me eating mountains of French Bread with the baked camembert we shared, because I was too embarrassed to tell him that I’m gluten intolerant; at the time we met it wasn’t really ‘a thing’ and more for hipsters – a hipster I am not!
