Dan would like to meet the teacher again


A love-struck Romeo has launched an appeal from the heart to find a woman he met at a bar while stranded by train delays on Valentine’s Day.

Heating engineer Dan Ramsey, 26, was struck by the brunette’s “nice eyes and voice” when they and friends spent an impromptu evening together at Hamilton Hall pub, in Liverpool Street Station, on Friday.

All he knows about the object of his affections is that she is called Natalie, she’s a teacher and she was travelling to Romford but, like him, was stuck in the City following a fatality on the tracks at Seven Kings station.

Dan said: “I was just going home from work at about 4pm and they announced the trains were all messed up so me and two work colleagues decided to go to the Wetherspoon’s pub next door.

“After a few, I was going to leave but then we got chatting to some people and that’s when I met her. She convinced me to stay and I ended up there until about 9.30pm.”

According to Dan, Natalie is in her late 20s, about 5’11’’ tall, has long, dark hair and was “slightly tanned”.

“She seemed really nice and down-to-earth,” said Dan, from Clacton-on-Sea, Essex. “She had really nice eyes and voice and she was quite friendly.

“We had a laugh and I would really like to see her again – and maybe take her out on a date.”


Dan, who hasn’t been in a relationship for more than two years, took Natalie’s phone number but was either “too tipsy or took it down wrongly” and hasn’t been able to get in touch with her.

Natalie was with two friends, Dan said, a man called David and a woman whose name he doesn’t know.
