You’re future husband could be waiting for you at central station tomorrow morning. So stop driving if you need a boyfriend.
This is pretty much what happen to the Sound of Music star Connie Fisher.
She met her husband Reed two years ago on Platform 1 of Cardiff station, when they were both travelling to London for work. Although they talked a bit, they were unable to catch the same train and parted without knowing each other’s contact details.
Reed eventually traced her through a mutual friend and that’s how their romance began.
I understand how it is so difficult to be in a packed train carriage every morning when I’m on my way to my university.
But I should admit, that I actually have made a lot of good friends ( not a future husband, yet) on trains and buses they have made my life much more interesting than it was before.
When I first started university, as in when I was still on my so-called ‘L’s for losers’, I had to catch a bus from my small suburb in Liverpool to Liverpool station, a train from Liverpool station to Central station, then a bus from Central station to my campus. At first, it was a confusing and exhausting 2hr Sydney public transport adventure. But it then started to become a daily opportunity to make friends for a girl who never had any friends from any other regions of Sydney besides Liverpool.
Not everyone was nice and lovely of course, but there were a lot of interesting people. I met a mega talented violinist who is now my friend and I even got to know some of the people I never knew from my own high school.
So, why don’t you join me from tomorrow? Put your ear phones back into your pocket, iPhone into your bag (it’ll give you a spinal problem if you don’t) and ask the person next to you a random question. Anything’s generic. From your standard.
