So after starting a thread and totally abandoning it, I thought I'd try again after stalking so many others. I'm sorry if it is long and boring, I have a habit of talking utter nonsense.
A litle bit about us
So my title kind of sums me up really. Since as young as I can remember i have been absolutely obsessed with Beauty and the Beast and the whole fairytale ending. I spent my teens and early 20s with an absolute idiot who made me believe my only purpose in life was to support him, it definitely wasn't the carriage ride away I was hoping for. 2 children later I finally got the courage to get a job to regain some independence. I finally had the confidence to leave.
In 2012 i took on an extra evening shift, which would change everything. In my job we have our regular customers, this one guy who came in most days in his work van had all the girls pressed up against the window every time the van pulled in 🤣. This particular night he had pulled in, in one of these fancy cars and as my colleague called it 'The JLS top', he was going out with the boys for food and his regular garage was closed for maintenance. Having a stupid car ment we were the only garage in the area who had the super petrol for it. At this point my confidence was pretty rock bottom and I didn't ever anticipate anyone would be interested in me. When he asked for my number I genuinely thought it was a joke and When he didn't text that night it kind of confirmed it.
The morning after I woke to a text 'Hi it's ******* do you remember our chat yesterday, I'd love to take you out? ' everything seemed so perfect until the date came 🙈🙈
