die for the camera

Bethe Marchant, 25, Leeds Arriving at my boyfriend Stefan’s house, I peered up at the tiny black eye watching my every move. The CCTV camera over the front door swivelled round. It was May 2019 and Stefan, then 28, had installed the equipment before we’d got together. ‘They’ll put off burglars,’ he told me. And they did make me feel safer when I came to stay with him. That night, me and Stefan headed out for dinner. I felt so lucky to have him. We’d first met at a bar in September 2018. Kind, caring and polite, he was everything I was looking for in a partner. And with his fit physique towering over 6ft, he wasn’t harsh on the eye, either. I was always daydreaming about our future together. The day we’d marry, our children together... But as I beamed at…

together through thick & thin

Samantha Ockelford, 45, Halstead Sipping a glass of wine, I laughed as my friend Emma told another hilarious story. It was November 2013 and this was just what I needed. A proper girls’ night out. With two failed marriages behind me, I was single and by no means looking for love. I had all the love I needed with my three daughters. Bethany, then 15, Holly, 14, and Megan, 12, were my world. And, truthfully, it would take a very special bloke to add to the equation.

But even after we moved to a different wine bar, he still wasn’t giving up! ‘OK, then,’ I groaned eventually, allowing…
