I was having doubts not so long ago, the kind of doubts that wear you down until, at a party, you hear yourself asking a virtual stranger for relationship advice. Virtual Stranger, having been put in the picture, said,
‘It’s very simple. Does he make you happy?’
‘Isn’t that a bit simplistic?’
‘No, it’s what it comes down to. Do you wake up and think of the person and feel happy?’
Virtual Stranger is obviously a morning person.
‘Well, sort of.’
He gave me a pitying look.
‘OK then no I don’t.’
‘There’s your answer.’
