This is a question Will you go out with me?

"Bloody Kraut, a" asks, "How did you get your current flame to go out with you? If they turned you down, how bad was it?"

Was it all romantic? Or were the beer goggles particularly strong that night?

Beans on Toast
I met my chap at Uni. Having finally got up the guts to leave abusive bumhole boy, this man was like a breath of fresh air. Not a bad bone in his body, kind and really funny.

Despite him being terrified of me at first because I appeared to be slightly crazy and he was very shy, he stuck at his steady wooing plan for the next month or so. This involved inviting me back to his halls to write up our labs together and soon extended to watching DVDs of a Friday afternoon when we were hungover and couldn't be arsed to go to our "Computing for Chemists" lectures.

We had a term of field trips lined up, which was when we were thrown back to being teenagers, as a mutual friend would run between us asking if we liked each other and all that guff. We spent a fair amount of time of those trips flirting and holding hands like school kids on the bus home. For the first time in years, I felt free and happy. However cheesy it sounds, he really did put a smile back on my face.

Within a few weeks, he'd invited me to come back home with him for a weekend and I'd accepted, feeling excited and having major butterflies in my stomach. We hadn't even kissed at this point, but I wanted to so badly. I can honestly say that I knew I wanted to be with him for a long time.

After beating about the bush for a month or so, he invited me over for tea after a late lecture, where he proceeded to cook me beans on toast. We ended up spending the night together and have been together ever since. 5 years in November!

So there you go, romance is indeed beans on toast.

There's an awful lot of chemists on here
And at least one mathematician.

Chemistry ftw, and you get an extra click for 'computing for chemists'. Computational chemistry doubly ftw.
