It must be love

Tomorrow is Vince and my three year anniversary. As a legal secretary that has spent some time working in the family department I know that some marriages don't last as long.

It just goes to show that even though I have toad hands, lumpy armpits, fart, am prone to bloating and a furfuraceous scalp there's still someone to love me (and as you can tell from my profile pick I'm not a hideous troll!) Maybe this is just because Vince also farts, burps, has smelly feet and snores.

I won't go into the all the sickly details but I just want to say that it is possible to find love online. Vince and I went about it in a very drawn-out way though as we met on a message board in May 1999 but didn't meet face-to-face until January 2004.

To celebrate we're going out for an Indian meal to try out our local one which looked very nice when we went in to book it. If the weather's nice we're hoping to go down the park to read in the afternoon.

Now I won't go on any longer and I'm not really sure why I blogged this but there you go. What a crap end to a romantic post. Ah well.

An old lady once told me that the secret of a long marriage is to choose the right person in the first place!

Have a lovely romantic day! And don't forget to drink a toast to the radiohead bulletin board.

Ahhh! As someone who met her partner through blogging I am all for on line romance.

Aww thats sweet, enjoy your day! I didn't realise how long you'd been together, time flies doesn't it! Jenny and I had our 3 year anniversary on tuesday, its funny, within our group all three couple have been together 3 years too, all within a few months of each other! xxx

Jen - All that time I was blathering on about Vince and I being separated by distance at the beginning of our relationship and you were going through the same thing! You could have said you know but I understand why you didn't.

We had a lovely afternoon in the park eating a picnic, put £5 each on a horse (Vince on Monkerhostin, me on Longshanks), went to the pub to watch the National, went home and watched some of the Man U -v- Watford match and then went out for our meal.

We should have put money on Silver Birch really as it was horse number 14 - it being 14th April and a significant date for us!! Bugger it - could have been £165 better off!

Indeed internet love is becoming more normal now. I don't know if I would ever use it purposefully for dating though. Good old Meeting People is Easy though (the Radiohead message board where we met).

Yeah, in some ways I feel bad not having said something knowing now that its ok, but I think its been the hardest telling people like you who I've known forever. Cause in some ways I know its always been me I just didn't know it, but in some ways I've changed so much and its just a bizarre thing going back to someone who knew you as a kid, you know what I mean? And I was trying so hard to deal with it all I was terrified that mum and dad would find out and I didn't tell anyone who'd ever met them never mind might meet them in the street! It was all a bit mental! Anyway, its all pretty good now so there we go. Glad you had a good day, it sounds lovely! Shame about the horse, I'm terrible for putting meaning into numbers for things like that, like I thought I'd win the lottery on my 18th birthday cause my numbers were all based around my birthday, duh! Guess sometimes it does work though! xxx
