Amber on Ellie
What were you hoping for?
My future life partner and co-parent to our children. Failing that, a relaxed evening in good company.
I saw her walk around the side of the restaurant and hoped she was my date.
What did you talk about?
Our jobs, uni, travel, life in London and how challenging it can be to find the time and money to do all the things we’d like to.
Any awkward moments?
The moment she said she didn’t feel ready to have kids because she didn’t want her life to be over. Whereas, for me, it feels like having kids is when my life will really start.
