When we started dating, Steve mentioned that he was friendly with an ex, and I gave him a mental bonus point. I’ve always considered it a major red flag if a man isn’t friends with any of his exes.
When Lisa and I met, we clicked straightaway. We arranged to meet up the following week to go to yoga. Now, we catch up at least weekly. We’re even planning to go on holiday together.
"Oh, why didn’t you call me? I’d have helped," said Steve. Lisa and I exchanged a look. We have both witnessed Steve trying to assemble flat-pack furniture. Steve has many excellent qualities but, as Lisa and I know only too well, DIY is not one of them. We both burst out laughing.
