To complete the set just bring some Coconut Creams.

...and if there isn't anything at all, how about making something up?

About 10 years ago, while my friend was plastered (paralytic) in a pub, his then girlfriend of 3 years nipped off to the toilet. He told me that while he "liked" his girlfriend, "she definitely isn't the one", he had no real feelings towards her and saw no future together. They're now married with 3 kids.

I don't see them often, but that night in town just runs through my head when ever I do. Sorry, I don't think your husband actually loves you.

The optimist in me hopes he grew to love her. But people are so mediocre, the realist in me suspects otherwise.

I'm sure he doesn't remember telling me given how pissed he was. It's always stuck with me. He was so cold and assured in how he felt, yet here he is. I'm sure he's not the only one. A story as old as time.

I'd a very similar experience with an acquaintance (sort of a friend of a friend) in London a couple of years ago. Was at the end of a house party and chats got a bit deep between us (he wasn't drunk, but had taken some stuff). He ended up telling me that the girl he was with since college definitely wasn't the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, but he didn't know how to end it without killing their friendship.

Anyway, he gets home from this house party about 7am and his missus informs him that she's pregnant! I was full sure he was making it up initially, but it was true. Things seem to have worked out okay, he seems happily a dad now and no issues that I've heard of.

I definitely think a mod should delete this post but leave the thread as it’s the most disappointing thread ever as the OP’s story doesn’t even remotely reflect the title of the thread so therefore should be removed for being irrelevant.

It's not that surprising, many if not most people settle to some degree, most of us aren't enough of a catch to land the kind of woman we would ideally want

I know the theme tune to the old telly ad and thanks to your post, I will be singing it in my head for the next week.

When I read the OP, I saw Kimberly, then mikado, and immediately my brain closed off the section where that ad was stored. Then I saw coconut creams in your post and it all flooded out.

Fuzzy biscuit earworm.

The band "The Clash" did not know if they should "Stay, or if they should instead Go"

I do know...

Because, if they stay "There will be trouble"
However..
If they go "It will be double"

Assuming the aim is to suffer the least amount of "Trouble" they should clearly STAY!

Joe Strummer.. you are welcome.
