The course of true love n’er did run smooth…

Even love doctors have their off days. Find out how things went oh so horribly wrong for one of our recent Single of the Weeks…

Published on January 8th 2007.


The course of true love n’er did run smooth…

Cilla must have been ripping her hair out in ginger clumps. However did she manage, week in, week out? Dr Love is very nearly having to give himself a sick note for stress.

You may remember our very lovely single of the week, Gail Sullivan, from BBC Manchester? As expected, Gail had plenty of hopefuls applying to be her Mr Right and join her for dinner at Sam’s Chophouse.

But alas, there could only be one winner, and the lucky fella was David Arrowsmith from Manchester.

With Gail and David being the busy people that they are, Dr Love struggled to find an evening when they were both free to meet up. But finally the night was settled upon, a Wednesday night before Christmas.

Dr Love unfortunately had to go to Wales for a long weekend, but left express instructions with Gordo (oh dear – ed) to organise the dates and let both parties know the arrangements.

Upon returning from his weekend away, (he had a lovely time in case you were wondering) Dr Love spoke to Gordo who assured him that all was taken care of and the pair were booked in for their meal on the Wednesday night. ‘Great’ thought Dr Love, and continued with some very important love activities.

On Thursday morning Dr Love arrived to work, wondering how the lovebirds got on, to discover that everything had gone horribly wrong, and David had seemingly been stood up by Gail! But when Dr Love mentioned this to Gordo, it seems that Gordo had forgotten to tell Gail that the meal was booked, so she had no idea that she was supposed to be meeting him (well, you will leave things to Gordo to organise – ed) .

David had a lovely meal regardless - here’s what he had to say of the night:

Muggins here turned up (on time – I know better than to keep a lady waiting)… But by 9pm and 2 pints later I was starving so I’m afraid I ate (O Solo Mio)… hope Manchester Confidential can spring for that one (I won’t invoice you for the taxi though, promise!)… if you are able to arrange something for January that’d be great.

On the plus side the food was great and the staff were most sympathetic! Although my ego could have done without the pre-Christmas battering… ;-)

Altogether now – ‘aawwwww’. Poor David.

But things could surely only get better. David had had a nice meal, and we were going to rearrange the date for after Christmas. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, over Christmas love did blossom, but unfortunately not between our pair. Arriving back to work after Christmas, Dr Love spoke to Gail who, yes that’s right, had found a boyfriend over Christmas so wouldn’t be able to go on a date with our David.

Altogether now – ‘aawwwwww’. Poor David.

Congratulations to Gail, who we all hope is very happy with her new fella, but David, we feel your pain.

Dr Love is convinced that there is a lovely lady out there who is right for David, so hopefully you’ll see David as Single of the Week very soon. That is, unless he finds himself a lady in the mean time…
