did you know he was going to be there before the gig?or was it just "hi im alistair" kind of thing?
Didn't realise until he started diverting his route home to chat to me more that he was a liker of the men
I thought you had to have a honed Gaydar to pass the test and get your license?
to pass on his Gaydar to me and I think he did pretty well as I think I am pretty good at it. Not something to put on a CV certainly...
was at a gig on that same tour.
and a Japanese rapper to boot
met at the bus stop, got married.
did you want the bus stop thread? Just to clarify, I'm not THAT girl.
actually, I just want a stupendously long and overly involved thread that culminates in beautiful failure, once you start introducing concepts like romantic success into a story the central pillars on which DiS is built begin to corrode!
to break and it's all my fault for being happy? Shall I call it off?
It'll be like what happens if you type 'Google' into Google, you'll break the internet.
I'm disappointed with the results.
coincidence or something more sinister?
she burnt me with a cigarette lighter.
She dared :(
of burning love.
i met my gf on myspace.i know i know internet relationships never last but 2 years and 10 months later were still together!
No more different than people meeting in a club really, is it? Except in a club people just try to bed one another and don't know each other first. I met an ex off the internet and it lasted 18 months, so no shunning from me
for one date all you have to do is not see them again if it goes downhill on rollerskates
On another note, did I ever tell you how really, really, really tall I am?
I'm really a 40 year old man in sandals.
would you like a lollipop?
then again 4 months later at zonino 2.5, then again when a few of us went camping when truck was flooded, but she didn't manage to go, then again at joemahone's birthday the next day,
Yeah, 6th year high school sweet hearts. We have been going out together for 6 years this august, and I can remember the whole Dawson's Creek "Will we survive University?" talk way back when...
You big liar. IT NEVER HAPPENED. HONEST.
and had met her a few times at various DiS/other things and then 'got together' at Zonino 2 :)
You can be on my first TV advert when I make it.
she had a boyfriend at the time. Soon sorted that one out.
I was searching for pictures of comedians online to go on my facespace and when I typed in 'Ross Noble' it linked to this girl's website selling her handmade crafty things. We shared a few e-mails about the dark haired Geordie and then I met her properly after a Herman Dune gig and asked her out for a drink the following week.
My sister asked him if he knew of a anyone with any pills (ha!) and then we got talking. Ended up carrying said sister out of the nightclub after she had too much to drink. He said something like "I know this is a bad time but can I have your number?" :D
I'm picturing an incredibly romantic scene right now.
Brilliant. What a classy, classy man he is.
at some party. Then bothered her on MSN.
We went to different schools, but had mutual friends and I met her at one of their birthday parties. Took me a further seven years to ask her out, but I got there in the end.
He's definitely me, that was established a long time ago.
I think I'm still drunk/euphoric from Melt Banana last night.
You're the Cilla Black in my life. Thewarn is "our Richard". Was that his name?
I lose at life :'(
When I first met her not much happened, but as I got to know her a bit better.. well, y'know, you start liking someone. I wasn't sure she liked me at first, but she didn't want to rush into something. Went to a couple of gigs together, then I invited her round to watch a film, and made my move. Hooray!
..I can't even remember what we were eating.
she was completely shitfaced and fell over, so I helped her back up with a few other people, and carried on dancing. About half an hour later she came up to me and asked, 'do you still think I'm cool', which I didn't really know how to reply to but we chatted about bands for a bit and then Flaming Lips came on and we danced and kissed.
i dont know anymore
but i'm a big fat loser today so it was shite :'(
I was the DJ in a bar/diner. 10 years in October together. Getting married in September !
So I used to ask him for new music recommendations, he said I should listen to this band - which I did, really liked there stuff so I emailed to ask if they had a EP and also if they had a band shirt in my size. I started chatting online with the guitarist, we finally met up and I was an hour late, we met up again at a Foals gig and then at a Forward! Russia! gig and now it's all happiness and roses.
All through 6th form we were purely platonic best friends. Everyone in our year said 'ah they'll be shagging soon' but we didn't. Then we went to two separate universitys but stayed in contact quite a lot (this is BEFORE facebook even). Eventually we met up in our third years and decided to stop living in denial about the attraction and... well you get the idea.
We've now been married 6 years and have 2 daughters.
but its very nice! :)
nearly puked on me at a gig
I'd told her to come along and meet us, and that me and bobbygeorge were the new Cannon & Ball. She fell for it. I stared at her boobs for about an hour. Months later she came onto me when I was powerless to resist after I DJ'd at the Barfly, having previously tried to lure me in with Levelling The Land and fridge magnets.
I invited to a Patrick Wolf gig once. I thought getting 'stood up' only happened in American sit-coms.
it happens to him all the time
Fortunately I hate the levellers.
*walks away whistling*
you with the Levellers too? SCANDLE!
Didn't you two meet on the internet?
I was merely there when the levellers wooing occured. And in fact, if anything it was Sadpunk and Homesick Alien who were wooing Bamos with the fridge magnets.
I'm sure we broke some kind of laughter record that night!
What a night.
my friend went off with his friend, we were kind of stuck on our own at chucking out time and thought why not.
Nearly 11 years later, here we still are
evening progressed to squat party in stamford hill in a black ambulance, then walked back to mine
It just all made sense.
How spazzed off your goulash were you?
She's the daughter of one of my workmates and we got chatting outside when we were outside having a cigarette. We exchanged numbers. It seems the smoking ban has done some good for the world :D
It was kind of a DiS meet up, and I knew no one, so I mostly stood around on my lonesome lookig for an oppotunity to leave.
Then she snatched the microphone off of me when I was trying to do karaoke.
Then I plied her with whiskey, went to Chicken Cottage and I kissed her at the bus stop.
Then we went on a date but I had no money so I had to sell my Rilo Kiley tickets to take her to the pub.
I came too next to her on my friends bed and we did some smooching.
I can't really add to it yet, but it's heartwarming :)
