    Never did I think I'd read "Eiffel Tower","Valentine's Day" and "Diamond
    ring" in the same sentence.

    Couldn''t happen to a nicer guy, for sure.

    Congrats!

    Quote Originally Posted by Uncle Kram View Post
    I met Lee in the first week of September 1971, the week after her 11th birthday. It was the day that we both started Secondary school and we ended up in the same class.
    We didn't really get to know each other for a while but in 1973, for a brief time she was my girlfriend. This was when "going out" with someone was a) asking them if they'd "go out" with you and then b) putting your arm around them in the playground, so yes, at the height of Glam rock, we were going out even though we never got to....well y'know...go out.

    After this brief eclipse, we sort of drifted apart and never had much to do with each other.
    When I left school, I heard that she was with a guy a couple of years older than us and strangely, he had the same surname as me and the same initial.

    I didn't see Lee until about 1985 when I was doing some shopping and pushing my son around in his pushchair. We had a brief chat where I learned that she, like me, was married and we now had the same surname.

    I didn't see her again until 5 years ago. It was while I was in the store where my son worked at the retail park by Fort Dunlop in Birmingham, waiting to pick him up. We had another chat and I discovered that she had been married for 10 years and was now divorced.

    The next time I saw her was 2 years later and strangely, it was in the next store along at the same retail park. This time we were both divorced and we had another chat and she told me the road that she lived in.

    Afterwards, I thought about her a lot and regretted not asking her if she fancied getting together just for a coffee or something. I figured she wouldn't be interested but almost to exorcise the regret, I found out her house number using a tip which appears as early as page 3 in Stalking for Dummies. Yes, I headed to the city centre to trawl the electoral roll. To be honest I thought it was a bit creepy, but I sent her a letter anyway giving her my number if she ever wanted a chat. I said that I didn't expect to hear from her, so maybe we could just bump into each other again in another 2 years at the next store along from the previous 2 encounters.
    Of course I heard nothing, but thought about her occasionally.

    2 years later, I found myself at the retail park again and had an unbelievably overwhelming feeling that she was going to be there in the store I had mentioned. As I headed there the feeling got stronger and when I got there it was unbelievable. She was nowhere to be seen.

    I drove home thinking of the letter I sent 2 years before and I was listening to something on the radio in the car about marriage. The guy was saying that people only get married so that they can have the same name. He suggested that people should only go out with each other if they had the same surname to save on the paperwork. As Lee had the same surname as me, it made me think of her again.

    About 10 seconds later, my phone went, and after 2 years, there was Lee on the phone asking if I was still up for going out sometime. I couldn't believe it. We had only just missed each other at the store as she had been there around the same time. It seemed a bit weird. I told my daughter about it and all she kept saying for the rest of the journey was "Omens!"

    About 10 days later, we went out for the first time and haven't looked back since. It's like it was meant to be.

    And so I found myself dazzling Lee up the Eiffel Tower in Paris on Valentines day with a diamond ring.

    But you'd already guessed there'd be a happy ending hadn't you?
    Uncle Kram - ya just made me cry!

    There is a match that was meant to be if ever I saw one

    I wish you both every happiness - I'm chuffed to bits
    Very nearly perfect ...
