The experience has really showed me that sometimes we are too quick to tick-box who we think we want.Neither of us was focused on looks because we weren’t each other’s usual type, and so it all fell on personality.
The next day, I rang her and we picked up where we left off — and have been chatting ever since.
Laura cooked me dinner one evening and it just reinforced how much of an attraction there is between us. Laura has a strong character and gives as good as she gets.
On the date, we had an initial chat about the menu and what to order, which is always a good icebreaker. The waiters were very funny, constantly keeping us entertained, and we just carried on talking and didn’t stop.
We didn’t delve too much into history, preferring to keep it positive.
When Laura walked into the room, she brought great energy with her.
