etting married was the best day of my life and if
I could do it all over again I would. I could not
recommend getting married more – it was the
most fun, emotional day.’
We met when we were 15 and 16 years old through a
mutual friend who went to school with me and who lived in
Serelle’s village. I was dating a boy at the time, who happened
to go to her school – I suppose I didn’t really understand my
feelings for girls. The ﬁrst communication with Serelle was
through MSN instant messenger – that’s how long ago it was!
We met in person about a week later and then became girl -
friends. Three months later she dumped me by text message!
Serelle heard from a mutual friend that I was with the guy
from her school, who she thought was a complete wally. So
she decided that she would ‘steal’ me away and date me,
which she did! After a few weeks she could tell that I was
looking for a ‘proper’ relationship and she wasn’t. That’s why
she ended it.
A couple of relationships and years later, we reconnected
after meeting at Girls and Boys nightclub in Canterbury. Serelle
was in a relationship at the time – which would end several
months later. We started hanging out again, as friends this
time, but we both knew there was still a connection there. I
was convinced that I wasn’t going to date her again after the
previous experience, but after much persistence on her part
we ended up together again!
