Katie said: ‘We started talking on a dating site and we were only ever going to meet up to have a one-night stand.
‘I had not long got out of a five-year relationship with a guy my age, so I just wanted to have some fun.
‘I met him at a hotel, and we did the complete opposite – we got on really well and sat up talking until 4am.
‘This was both our first times meeting someone who wasn’t the same age as ourselves, but it was like we had known each other forever.

The 23-year-old revealed her mother Gill, 45, has shown support of her relationship with Chris who works as a railway signalling manager
‘He is totally different to boys my age, he is attentive and actually wants to hang out with me rather than playing on an Xbox.
‘We have been joint at the hip since the moment we met, it was only right for us to move in with each other.
‘I told my mum Gill, 45, about Chris, who is a railway signalling manager, after our first date and she supported our relationship.
‘I am the happiest I have ever been, we love travelling and have been to Italy, Greece and Spain together.
‘People tend to stare but we actually love it, we find it hilarious that people have nothing better to do.
‘He is always there for me and gives me advice when I need it.
‘Other couples feel intimated by us, because we are so in love and get on like a house on fire.’

The pair who have plans to go travelling, say they hope to get married one day and start a family of their own.
Chris said: ‘Initially, I was nervous but flattered that a girl who is half my age had shown an interest in me.
‘Before meeting I thought we would never see each other again. But after a few hours of getting to know each other, I started getting butterflies and a desire to see Katie again.
‘We spent the night together and to my surprise Katie felt the same.
‘I have never dated a younger girl before, but Katie makes me feel so alive. She is so outgoing and loving.
‘I fell in love with her quickly, and even three years on I still get the same excited feeling when I am on my way home from work.
‘Katie had lost her father about two months before we met, and this meant I have also assumed a father figure roll alongside being a partner.
‘This dual role has made our bond very strong and people have difficulty understanding but to be honest, I wouldn’t understand until I experienced it myself.’
Chris says people have a difficult time understanding how his role as a partner and father, has made his bond with Katie strong
