that you otherwise feel bitter or non-plussed about having had a relationship with ???
G'wan - tell us a story
no staying power
All Christians have such powerful voices.
Apart from that the relationship was a bit of a write-off.
It's much much better to tell it whilst drunk...
that was overly romantic and you would think i was a soppy twat.
took her on a rowing boat with a picnic basket, and went round the park in the boat in the middle of summer, and ate pasties and ham sandwiches, with a glass of wine. just turning sunset as we got back. it was lovely.
oh how i yearned for her
other than that,no
apart from the company
I was worried it was going to be some horrible suicide bridge.
but i wouldn't want to sound too sappy (lol), though there are [quite] a few standout moments for me.
last summer. at first she wasn't much more than a distraction from my then-gf, but by the end of summer we ended up in a relationship.
one day we were in whsmith for some silly reason and decided to buy a set of magnetic travel checkers. from then on each week we would go to the botanic park in belfast - we'd sit on the same bench, walk in the tropical ravine, make out a lot, and play travel checkers. we left one magnetic checker on the back of our bench and each week we'd check to ensure he was still there ('he' as we creatively christened it 'checkie the checker' (this isn't as unbearably twee as it sounds, it was blates tongue in cheek)).
last weekend i was home in belfast to see my current girlfriend. somehow we ended up in the botanic park. i surreptitiously checked for checkie the checker, but he's long gone.
i fell out with her a bunch of times afterwards so plenty of bitter/non-plussitry involved too, (though mostly on her part).
- laying in my back garden looking at stars after spraying each other with champagne i stole from my folks
- an evening in front of a fire
- the christms present she made me
I miss her, but she became someone else so we split up. Dam shame really.
But everything that happened post break up makes it hard for me to think about these things without getting myself angry.
and book a couple of nights at The Three Chimneys (fucking shit hot boutique hotel/restaurant in Skye). Anyway we went out for a walk and after walking for about 30mins in a very heavy wind that almost blew you off your feet the rain came down out of nowhere and we were literally soaked through after about 5 mins, we had another 25mins walk back which was spent laughing and taking the piss. We got back to our rooms totally soaked, changed into dressing gowns and ordered a jug of G & T and a jug of bloody mary and sat and watched the elements batter off the huge windows as we smoked a couple of doobs, drank, talked, laughed and listened to music.
Not a great story for anyone not there, but a genuinely great memory from a really great day for me.
iw ant to go stay in a hotla somewhere beautiful and do that now :(
i can't really remember anything at all, and i see him a lot still, so it would be weird thinking that i thought these thoughts when i see him again
my favourite memory with my current boyfriend is going to dungeness on one of the rainiest days of the last year, and trying to go for a walk and being completely battered by rain with only two power stations in view and lacking the will to go any further. he was completely soaked so i covered his ears and then he was like 'can i see you on wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday, sunday' etc. i've never really enjoyed being so cold and soaked before
that so cute
what a loser :P
I politely nodded. And now three months later....
We were both hungover after my birthday party the night before but it was really nice weather, sat on the grass, drinking champers. She left for Oz two weeks later and never came back.
It was only for a couple of months whilst travelling before we returned to our separate countries. So no acrimonious split but on reflection I think she would have done my nut in with her Paulo Coehlo schtick. Good while it lasted though.
Making bolognaise at my house at around 11 at night then walking to her house (1 mile down the road in the snow) clutching this enormous heavy piping hot silver saucepan full of bolognaise-y goodness to eat with her.
Lying on a beach in Nice in August looking at the perfect sky and the perfect sea and saying something like science is incredible, right? And then saying- "but it can't explain everything...."
"what do you mean?" she asks
"like why I love you!"
<she hates me now>
but the bolognaise story is nice
No amount of bolognaise in the snow can make up for that.
talking about everything. We'd both be talking and listening and agreeing and getting on, just the two of us after work. When we started seeing each other, it all fell to pieces.
Another girl, i went to meet with in her town. She introduced me to a burger with blue cheese, then we went to some quiet bar that was playing old 50s/60s rock'n'roll tunes. Played pool and hung around and we kissed when we left the bar. Then she went to study rocket science somewhere miles away and never really got back to my calls.
when I went there to study for a year. We had a lovely and romantic few days in Finland, he flew home, then we broke up a couple of months later. But that few days in Paris sticks with me, and the fact he went there with me even though it must have been hard to do.
