About Jo-Anne Tuesday............I'm a Loner...........

I have always been a loner preferring to spend my time alone although when I was at school I did a have a few girls I hung around only one of which I would call a friend. I never had a boyfriend while I was at school and to be honest I was not interested in boys when I was at school.

After leaving school I still had no interest in boys but of course that did change over time and when I was in my early 20’s I decided to sign up to a dating agency and went on one date with some guy who I really didn’t click with but the next day I had a phone call from a guy named Tim and we around to go out the following night which was a Thursday night and I knew right away that this was the guy for me.
We went to pizza hut and neither of us could eat much we both were so nervous, the date was the 6th June 1983 and 3 months later he asked me to marry him and of course I said yes we had an engagement party in November and married the following September. 

Tim decided to try a dating agency because like me he is also very shy and a loner.


  1. Awww you two were meant to be! My Husband and I dated for 6 years before we got married!
    Blessings, Joanne

  2. I loved hearing the story of how you two met. Super pictures as well! I also did not have a boyfriend while at school and for the first three years at university. I had a few dates, but none appealed to me. My standards were rather high. I met my husband at the end of my 4th year. We were married exactly a year and 3 months later and celebrate our 35th anniversary this year.

  3. Awesome pics. :) when you know you know. It's obvious you were meant to meet and fall madly in love and that's the end. :)

  4. What a wonderful story- you two are a cute couple!

  5. Nice to hear your story. I'm glad it worked out.

  6. I loved to read this story and to see the photos today. I thought it was really sweet, and you were obviously meant to be together.

  7. you sound like me a loner by nature and yet we found someone who cn deal with that. you two are great together

  8. How neat that you found each other with a little help!

  9. I love the 2 new additions to your blog and can't wait to read more :)

  10. I love that in both pictures you guys are in front of a car. What a great story!
