Get your hankies out, ladies.. Have a real Mills and Boon moment for you...
When I was 16, I met a very handsome soldier. He was a Lance-Corporal in the Royal Signals, 21, very tall, dark and utterly gorgeous, and we fell in love. He was my first grown up love. We talked about potentially getting married, and decided we would review things when I was 18 and had completed my 'A' levels. We were both completely smitten. However, my dad was not. He was a Wing-Commander in the RAF at the time.. a senior officer, equivalent to Lieutenant Colonel in the army. He did not approve of his daughter being associated with someone in the "other ranks", as they call them, and he used his authority and channels through M.O.D. to force us apart. My soldier stood up for us, but lost the battle. He was given no choice except to end our relationship. I was heartbroken.
Long story short(ish!), we found each other again on Facebook a few weeks ago, and we are both single again. Guess what? He had been equally heartbroken by our break-up, and I had always been on his mind, too, throughout the 36 years we've been apart.
After much communication over the past few weeks, we are now back together and totally smitten all over again! :o)
Now you know why I haven't been back in a while!! *lol*
ALSO.. I have just finished my old job today, and start the new one on 7th June! :o)
Life is soooooo good! Hope you're all doing as well, and enjoying life. :o)
