Tube Cupid

Will it have a happy ending?
Tube Heartthrob found

I often wonder how many of people get to speak to the "potential" love of their life after they write into Metro's Commuter Cupid page. They see the same person day after day and use Metro in the hope that the attraction is mutual. However, a German tourist, on a brief trip to London, will be meeting up with a guy she spotted on the District Line, after her email reached Metro's offices.

She wrote "Now I haven't neither his name, nor his e-mail address, because I don't had the trust to speak to him! I have only this one picture! And now I am back in Germany and I can't forget him! That's why I have this crazy idea!"

For some reason Metro featured this yesterday and today the man has been identified as Ben Moon, who luckily enough for Melanie Speth, is single (after splitting up with his girlfriend two weeks ago) and also he thinks Ms Speth "looks lovely". Metro in a fit of matchmaking lurveness have even offered to fly Ms Speth over to England for their first date. Ahhhhhh.

So photography seems to be the trick here. Perhaps Commuter Cupid should be re-introduced with people snapping pictures of their targets.

I haven't got pockets as large as Metro, but if you fall in love with any of the Tube fashion victims, let me know. Perhaps they might like to be outed if they are young free and single and looking for love.
