A few years ago, I clicked Derek’s picture and lucky for me, he clicked on my picture, too. We started chatting that evening until 2 a.m. even though we were both teaching the next day!
I, shy as I am, asked Derek if he wanted to meet in person. I was so happy that he agreed to do so. Instead of just a drink, we had an evening meal together too and really enjoyed each other’s company. Having met up a few more times, we decided to give it a go as a couple. As Derek wisely said, ‘If we don’t try, we will never know.’
To cut a long story short, we have now been happy together for five years, sharing a home for the last two years and never looked back.
