Restaurant manager Thomas Blythe is determined to find the woman he knows only as Cathy or Kathy. His blog, documenting the fleeting encounter, has been posted on Twitter and has been retweeted by thousands of people.
Posters titled 'Are you Cathy/Kathy?' have also been put up around the area in South London where they met as he got into a cab about 1am.
"She was beautiful, incredibly sweet and swelled with delight when she saw the flowers, she just said she loved flowers and how beautiful mine were and jokingly asked if she could have them," he said. "I handed them to her and she said her name was Cathy, I told her mine. She said she lived on Coldharbour Lane. I told her I did too. She kissed me on both cheeks and walked away. Before I could think to offer her my number, ask her if she might like a drink sometime. She'd gone."
He spent a frantic 20 minutes scouring the area for any trace of where she might live but tired and dejected gave up. He finished his blog: "She was lovely, and no-one walks up to you in London and tells you how lovely something is and it's rare you get to make a stranger's day. So perhaps she'll email me and make mine.”Post published in: World News
