If someone can love and adore me despite all my many, so many, faults then it can happen for anyone.
Well, with a bit of luck. Being in the right place at the right time.
For instance, the day that I met my current partner of getting on towards four years was a Friday. I was going home from work. I encountered a friend on the street who lived locally. He’d just moved there so he invited me in for an after work bottle of ale. (He’d stocked up at Clapton Craft, bottles and growlers.)
While we were at his house, still drinking and chatting, another friend phoned him to say that it was his girlfriend’s birthday and his flat was starting to fill up with women so did we want to come round and keep him company. Being a pub manager, he had a large collection of bottled beers. So of course we said yes.
By about 10.30 or so the girls decided to go to a local bar. Us three blokes went with them. Why not? And that’s where I met my now partner. On a night where I was going to go home and spend a Friday night alone but random circumstances led me to do something else instead.
