Jen and Dan: Together two years
‘I met Dan while working in a bar in Leeds City Centre. I was pulling pints, and he was… well, he was my boss. And yes, I’m aware that on paper that doesn’t exactly sound like a relationship set to last.
On our first date we went to a tapas restaurant by the river, and I promptly made several (rather large) mistakes. I was so nervous that I did the classic “drinking yourself interesting” thing, which resulted in a bit of a grey area where memories of the meal should be. (I might have been interesting – I really don’t know.) What I do remember is that I wore control pants. Really, really big control pants. Which gave me stomach cramp. Needless to say, the combination meant that I had to nip out half way through the date to throw up.
Luckily, Dan didn’t seem to mind. Two years later, we don’t work together anymore (I’m not very good at being told what to do) but we do live together.
