View George and Sally

In their own words

What first attracted you to your partner?

Sally: Her photo and her profile.
George: She was blonde(!), and in management.

How did your relationship progress?

Sally: We emailed for a week or so, then swapped phone numbers. For our first date we met for a pub meal, and talked, and listened. And then met again the next night!
George: Then it was the theatre and music concerts - and then she dumped me, because I was not quite ready, I didn't think, after 3-4 months. We made contact again in April and haven't really been apart since then.

What made you realise the relationship was serious?

Sally: Complete suitability and communication, and intellectual compatibility.
George:

What plans do you have for your relationship in the future?

Sally:
George: We now approach our anniversary, and hope to be able to have a normal life, if at all possible. (Sally was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer just before their wedding. In the last year she has had a major operation and has endured months of chemotherapy, and is now on the road to recovery!)
