"We dated at university in the early Nineties but she dumped me and married someone else, which was hard to take. But then in 2002 when we were both single again we met at a party. I had trouble speaking to her because my feelings were so strong and I was embarrassed. I've always been crazy about her. But I've played the long game and I feel I deserve her now."
