Advance 1st class Virgin Pendolino ticket from up north to London. Sipping coffee whilst flying throughout the countryside at 100mph plus, anticipation increasing every minute. Exchange a few texts with the girl to start the buzz.
Check in at 4/5 star hotel in central london around 2pm. Pre-booked high-end room/suite on a high floor. Slip off shoes and wander round the suite, smirk widening all the time. Look out of the large windows, down on the busy London scene below - wondering if that pretty girl crossing the street is my date, no maybe not, is is that one then...? (great fun!)
Shower, quick beer or whiskey (only one), then pace the floor for 10 minutes until - oh the unbearable tension! - that glorious knock on the door comes, and heart fluttering, you step across, open the door, and are greeted by a pretty young girl from Uni, school satchel on her shoulder, who steps into the room, gives you an enormous smile, extends her hand and says 'Pleased to meet you'.
