Christian first saw Miriam in a flight to Mallorca in 2005, but he was too shy to walk up and talk to her. Later that day Christian and his friend met Miriam and her mother again in the historic city centre of Palma. Again he was too shy to talk to her. A few hours later all of them individually decided to get something to eat and by chance Christian and his friend just sat a few tables apart from Miriam. As Miriam and her mother were about to leave Christian decided that the third time is a charm he plucked up his courage with the help of huge gulp of wine and walked over to her in order to give her his business card and ask her out for a dinner back in Hamburg. Miriam was still in a relationship at that point so she was not quite sure what to do with his business card. But mothers are always a great source of advice, so the card was slipped into one of the side pockets of Miriam’s handbag… for five months.
