A COUPLE wrongly believe the mildly complicated way in which they met is an utterly compelling tale.
Tom Booker and Emma Bradford describe getting together as if it was an obstacle-filled romantic comedy, when in reality they just met a number of times and eventually had intercourse.
Booker said: “I first met Emma at Steve’s barbecue last summer, but the crazy thing was I barely spoke to her and left early because I had a bike ride the next day.
“I didn’t see her for four weeks, when Steve organised a trip to the pub. If I’d stayed in that night I might never have seen her again, until Steve organised another trip to the pub.”
Bradford picked up the story: “We really clicked that night. Tom sometimes tries recipes he’s found on the internet, and so do I. We even like the same films. We’ve both seen The Lion King and ET.
“We didn’t meet again until Rachel got everyone to go for an Indian meal a month later and we swapped email addresses. It’s almost as if fate was guiding things in some totally crazy way.
“I was worried when I didn’t hear from Tom for two weeks, but it turned out he’d been on holiday. Incredible.”
Mutual friend Steve Horton said: “Tom and Emma need to realise theirs is an unbearably tedious story. Both of them having read Girl on the Train is not proof that you are meant to be together.”
