Yes, I know ... this sounds like a particular bad episode of the Jeremy Kyle show, but don’t judge before you finished reading.

I’m a 42 year old widow, who moved back to the UK in 2019 after living abroad with my late husband for almost 15 years. Two days after I arrived back, I attended the wedding of my sister’s eldest daughter. The perfect opportunity to see my family again, I thought.

Because I live in London and the wedding was in Yorkshire, I decided to drive up the day before and take a room at a local hotel. After diner I was reading a book by the fire when a young man asked if he could sit in the chair opposite. He was in his mid 20’s and really REALLY attractive. There was eye contact, his smile made me blush, he offered me a drink and we ended up in my room having the most incredible sex. When I woke up the next morning, he was gone. Although I never had a one-night-stand before, I somehow had expected it and was okay with it.

But when I arrived at the church later that morning, my sister came over and said ‘let me introduce you to groom’ and called out his name. A man in a morning suit turned around and I was looking at the same man who had been in my bed just a couple of hours earlier. It was somewhat awkward, as you can imagine.

At the time I didn’t say anything, I didn’t want to ruin my niece’s big day, but now I’m not sure it was the right thing to do. What do you think?

If this is true (because yes it does sound like a Jeremy Kyle moment) you have to say something. Imagine it came out later!

Night before his wedding he'd be with his mates or his family, not in a hotel. Sounds weird.

None of this rings true. I'm not convinced it's even written by a woman.

If it part of a book I like it!

Sounds like the opening to a really trashy, cheesy novel.

I hope no one reports this thread, I like obvious fake ones because the responses are always funny.

What hotel was it OP?
Just how amazing was your convo that minutes later you were having incredible sex with a stranger half your age?

HollowTalk Sun 11-Apr-21 08:24:36

Not much of a wedding if the groom spent the evening before hanging out in a hotel on his own waiting for a woman to chat up.
