We were stunned with how much Jane Thornber’s love story mirrored the novel One Day and with the upcoming release of the film adaptation we knew a magazine would be interested in featuring the moving tale.
Jane met Dave at in 1999 when they started university; they were both instantly attracted to each other but at first simply became friends. Over the next few years they had a brief fling and dated for a while before Dave, not wanting to be tied down, ended the relationship. They remained friends but over the years both travelled to opposite sides of the world – with Jane even getting married to another man.’
Neither were able to shake the other from their minds and finally in 2009 they shared their ‘second’ first kiss. Now they are talking about moving in together.
Jane says: I can’t believe how far we’ve come and that the spark never died!” Dave adds: “Jane is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I’ve spent the last ten years loving her. I’m happier than I ever thought possible.”
