A west country affair for 2014
I've been lurking on the boards for a few weeks, but think I've finally got the gist of things and want to join in. And so begins my planning thread... I have a tendency to provide too much detail so hopefully I don't bore anyone!
I don’t imagine many people meet their h2b when he is completely starkers, but I did. It was September 2004 and my fresher’s week at university. H2b and an equally naked small Welsh man (who remains a close friend of ours) introduced themselves to me mid-streak while hiding from campus wardens. It turned out they were practically neighbours and on the same course as me so we made quick friends.
There was always a certain amount of flirting between me and h2b and we shared our first kiss not long after. I’m not sure exactly how it happened or how it finished, but our next few meetings were marred with awkwardness. Neither of us was in a position to begin a relationship and we were both happy to leave things as they were, but perhaps uncertain of the other’s feelings.
We remained friendly, but when we found ourselves in different classes in the second year, we drifted apart. The next couple of years passed with maybe just a handful of meetings, either passing each other in the corridors with short, but polite conversation or bumping into each other on nights out with somewhat more enthusiastic (but equally brief) exchanges. Plans to catch up were hatched, but never followed through on. When I graduated and moved back to London, I didn’t give two thoughts as to whether I’d see him again, but if I had, I could be mistaken for thinking the chances were slim to none.
