Four of my crushes from 2001. I've been going through my old emails, and found this little nugget. Looking back, I'm somewhat embarrassed. NB: The one I got together with was Giles. We were so wrong for each other.

Amphetamine freak: bought speed from bikie gang in Wantirna. Reminisces about great clubs and drug-addled benders in early 90s. Drinks 'Scottish breakfast' tea. Obscene showoff on the dance floor. Fascinated with guns. Obsessed with sexy women. Drives silver-green Barina, backseat crammed with junk. Lives in St Kilda.

Giles (28): Shy. Creates ambient electro music on analogue equipment. Works as market research interviewer. Grew up in Wagga Wagga. Blonde. Never wants to be married.
