    Just light hearted of course

    Can be real or celebrity

    I would say probably the person my mum wanted me to marry.

    I met several possibles, but my partner turned out to be the most stubborn possible.

    With hindsight, I'm pretty sure the others couldn't have taken the weight. In my wilder fantasies, I've snaffled Ian Hislop, but I've no idea what he'd be like to be *married* to...

    No-one.

    When I finally plucked up the courage and decided I was going to divorce the Number One Mistake In My Life, I was as certain as I could be that I would remain alone thereafter.

    Fate decreed otherwise.

    I was happily living on my own (after a separation) - as was my current partner. Neither of us was looking - we just happened to sit next to each other at a work do and it went from there. We’ve got a relationship now that suits us both very well. We don’t live together - have separate lives and meet up two or three times a week (less at the moment because of child looking after duties).

    If, for any reason, it ended then I’d contendly go back to my single life

    Is the OP an opinion pollster in real life? They seem to have a penchant for asking vague questions, then never returning.

    Like previous posters (now PPRd) who asked random questions on various boards but never returned to the threads.
    HBBK (or something similar) comes to mind.

    I would have Deano9133, however the criteria is 'real or celebrity' so it doesn't count.

    BTW why aren't celebtrities real?

    We've had a poster like that before. It got tired very quickly.

    My main issue being that they never came back to their own thread. I know this is the internet, but that's bad manners in my world.

    No one - I honestly think I would have stayed alone

    I don't think anyone else could put up with me, and no other guy has ever measured up - and I kissed a few frogs before I met my husband when i was in my early 30s
    Blah blah blah.
