"In 2001 internet dating hadn't really taken off here, so this happened as a result of a personals ad. I was newly single and feeling pretty frisky so took a chance on a 'Mr Wrong, 24, seeks Miss Right' ad. We corresponded and spoke on the phone before meeting and everything sounded ok.

I was misled quite badly. Paul was more like 48 than 24, a paunchy, pasty, bargain basement Freddie Mercury look-a-like. Being of Italian heritage he was staunchly anti-racist, but thought homophobia was fine. He got drunk and wanted to take me to the circus. It was a really uncomfortable experience, but I managed to escape with just one cheek having been slobbered on after he slurred 'You're really cute.'
