I call bluff , you said you are not in a relationship so you can't be Mrs Channing Tatum  (whoever he/she/they are , whet sort of name is Channing :blink:). 

 

Channing Tatum is the beautiful man on the left, and Mrs CT is Jenna Dewan, his equally beautiful wife :wub:

Well just a little update. Things seem to be going well. Since my apology text that I have said about it has been one massive long conversation. 

I decided that as it was a bit too jokey at times. I wanted to start creating a friendship so asked some advice about an issue I'm having at work and a long conversation stemmed from there. They have also started to open up about things from that so pleaser with that.

Without wanting to hijack this thread, I met my now ex at Sixth form, I was new to the school and she was in my tutor and was assigned to show me around. 

3 weeks later we were dating.

 

However, I have "severe" social anxiety and events just after we broke up exasperated it (not blaming her for how I am right now, as that was nearly 5 years ago, but it caused possibly my worst low point)

Reference for how bad I get- a year or so ago I was out with a friend and was told that a (rather attractive) girl liked me, and my response was to laugh it off as a joke. On a bad day I feel physically ill at just the thought of talking to someone I don't know, even if it is just the cashier at a shop. 

 

I, and all my friends from sixth form, left Bristol for Uni. But I am the only one who is back in Bristol, and despite moving back 18 months ago, I only know one person- who I met 6 weeks ago after joining a drama group, but even them I barely know as we are doing backstage work the whole time.

To top it off, I am inept at holding a conversation until I know someone quite well, unless the topic is football.

No.1  Met at work.  Married and produced a wonderful son (became an Everton supporter - where did I go wrong?).  Got fed up with the aggro and divorced - she then fell off a cliff in Lanzarote.

No.2  Met through a dating agency.  A divorced lady from Madeira - her father was President of the club which produced Ronaldo!  We drifted apart but remain on speaking terms.

No. 3  Met at work.  Lovely lady but a real control freak and after ten years we drifted apart but remain friends and may sometime get back together.

Now live contentedly in Spain on my own.  Spend my time writing the greatest novel ever written - plus knocking back Ribera del Duero in copious quantities.

Funny old life innit?

1975. I'd just moved up to London and she was on a training course with me. Unfortunately the following year she had to return to Birmingham uni for her final year. We survived the absence and got married in 1977. It will be 40 years in 2 weeks time!

Met at work in 88. Took her to the Forest semi final at AG in '89, first game she'd ever been to. We were in the open end, got soaked and she didn't see a thing. We try to go to Forest at home whenever we play them as it's 'our game' :-)

That is so romantic MSK . I have a little tear in my eye reading your story .

Can of cider & a portion of chips on the park wall to commemorate such an occasion? Now that really would make you an old romantic.

The first 2 City games I took my then-girlfriend, now-wife, to were both Forest matches: 1-4 defeat at their's in the FA Cup and the 1-4 home game with Collymore scoring a brace.

For the cup game, me and @Mad Cyrilwere both there with our respective partners: being the old romantic I bought open terrace tickets, rather than spend 4 quid each more on seats, and my wife, who is 5'2", could see jack-sh1t through the crowd. It then hailed in the 2nd half, and the ladies suggested that they nip out to the shops and we caught up with them later. I told them the lie that the gates were always locked to the end, and no exits were permitted. They believed me and stuck it out in the cold. Not sure she has ever really forgiven me.

On Tinder in Chile whilst on a trip to the 2014 World Cup. First conquest of many on that trip, or so I wrongly thought.

Loads of holidays together in 2014 and 2015 along with 3 months shacked up in a Clifton flat.

Married in 2016, living together permanently and a fellow City season ticket holder.

One day I'll get her hooked on OTIB too.

I'm not a cynic in love at all; I just take pissing about more easily in my stride.  Friends with benefits and what have you.  Three of my three brothers have established significant others.

There maybe, I say maybe, somebody who maybe getting a bit too close.  We shall see.

What I never quite got is how it all actually happens.  How do partners hook up, properly, for real? 

I foresee the girlies loving this thread.  

In addition to this post, do you wear your t-shirt very often?

@Up The City! hurrah. Nice one. :) 

Bit of an update, lots of great banter over the past few months. Told them how I felt a few weeks ago and the response was quite positive. Off to Ireland to visit them all in a few weeks where a night out with us all has been arranged. They seem quite excited I'm heading over there.

Looking forward to seeing how this develops however the one thing for sure is there is a great friendship there now.

I met my wife nearly a year before we had a proper conversation face to face.

I was doing promo work for Walkabout at a foam party and she took it upon herself to try and steal one of the Australian flags. Needless to say i went over and asked her not to, she then ran off and hid in the toilets while i chatted to her friends.

I became facebook friends with a few of them but not the one who ran to the toilets, no idea who she was. I managed to get her friend one of the flags from Walkabout that evening, which they hung on their kitchen wall in their university halls. This was in January 2009. I was in a relationship with another girl at this point

That relationship ended in the October of that year and i spent the rest of the calendar year bed hoping to make up for lost time.

Then one evening just before Christmas, I was talking to one of the guys who I was speaking to at the foam party on Facebook and this was the time when it had your friends list on the side. I saw the girl who had attempted to steal the flag on his list, and i thought "wow, she is smoking hot" - so i took a chance, clicked "add friend" and awaited a response to see if she's accept. She accepted it and we got talking, reminding her i was the guy who stopped her stealing the flag. Turns out we had so very much in common and we agreed to meet each other after the Christmas holidays.

Christmas holidays finished and we were due to meet up but i contracted mumps, which meant i was housebound for a fortnight until it cleared.

Once my beautiful face was back to normal, we met up at the classy romantic establishment, that is ASDA (behind Molineux for those who have been to Wolves' ground) - and we've never looked back

Got married in September 2014 and we had our first child on New Years Eve just gone.

Well guys I’m in Ireland and bunkered down for the incoming weather.

The second I got on the ferry they have been in constant contact with me! They couldn’t actually believe I was coming over to see them. 

Within a hour of being in Ireland they invited me out for a cuppa this week and then even offered me their spare room if I fancy a change! 

Possibly meeting them later So it’s all looking rather grand!

Bloody chuffed for you mate. It's not easy, and you've come out of your shell and done it. Hope it all goes well, I'm sure it will.

Done better than me anyhow, I'm absolutely useless when it comes to liking someone! No idea how to deal with the emotions.

You know what? I knew I felt something the 1st time I met them and I have just followed my heart and it seems I was well right to!

Met them briefly for half hour this evening as they were traveling through and that spark was defo still there.

I’d say I’m the same as you with emotions but I just had to follow my heart and now it seems to be paying off.

You explained the background to this in an earlier post, and I hope it works out for you both.
