I am so grateful to have met her, I even still get butterflies when she walks into the room.
I’d always been attracted to mavericks, handsome men, who – after a year or so – made it clear they had no intention of settling down.
I wanted a serious relationship and a friend said there were nice guys on Arealkeeper so I joined 6 months ago. Dee thinks that was me being funny but seriously I had come across so many nutters I was genuinely praying for a good normal, lovely person. Conversation flowed so fast I couldn’t type quick enough.
The day I joined I got a good few messages but Mark’s stood out a mile. I’m a single parent with 2 teenage girls so I had found it hard to find someone in a similar situation that would be good to my kids. When we met a couple of days later, we clicked instantly.
"Visibly frustrated, he decided to inform me that his ex-girlfriend knew me, and that when she found out we were going on a date, she’d called me a whore.
It seemed he was desperate for me to A) ask who this mystery girl was; B) say nasty things about her in return.
