A mum-of-two who was 'madly in love; with a man who had been 'stalking' her for months at Tesco has shared their unusual love story. Glen Robertson, a smitten shopper, visited the supermarket daily hoping to catch a glimpse of Charlotte, an 'oblivious' worker he'd flirted with at the checkout.

It took four months before they met again, and when they did, she felt a 'compulsion' to give him her number.

The pair, who were virtually strangers, went on a date the next day and by the end of the week, they had declared their love for each other. Two months later, Glen, a father-of-one, proposed and they got married in September 2020.

Charlotte, who was going through a divorce when they met, said she 'wasn't expecting to find love again'. The 43-year-old revealed: "I didn't even realise he was flirting with me at the tills. Nor did I know that he came into the store every day to try and speak to me. None of my colleagues noticed that Glen was coming in every day."

She added: "When we did speak again, I could tell Glen was trying to keep the conversation going. I felt a compulsion to give him my number, like I was possessed. I'd never given my number to a total stranger but now I'm thankful I did."

Now working as a carer in a children's home, Charlotte said they 'instantly clicked' during their first date, adding: "We knew we had something special. I've never had a stalker before, so when Glen admitted, he'd been trying to speak to me for four months I felt flattered. I like to tease him about it every now and then but I'm just as besotted with him."

Electrician Glen, 47, recounted how Charlotte was 'oblivious' to his initial flirtatious advances when she served him at the supermarket back in October 2019. He reminisced: "I wasn't looking for love either but there was something about Charlotte that drew me to her."

Glen also shared a touching detail about his personal life: "I lost my dad a few months before I met Charlotte, he hoped that me and my daughter were going to be okay before he passed."

Reflecting on their serendipitous connection, Glen said: "Looking back, I'm more than okay and it's like the universe put Charlotte into my life for a reason. I admit, there were times when I went into her Tesco and left with nothing. But I'm not a total stalker, just a man in love. Timing is everything - we're proof of that."

The couple, who tied the knot in an intimate ceremony with 11 guests, still share a deep affection nearly four years on. Charlotte expressed her enduring fondness for Glen: "I still blush when he cracks jokes around me - he's truly my best friend."

She continued to describe their playful relationship: "He still makes me nervous, and loves to wind me up-I have to beg him to stop because I go so red. When we're together, we're like two teenagers. We're planning a little week away soon; we just love going away together I like to think he's besotted with me."

Charlotte concluded with heartfelt sentiments about their bond: "He makes me laugh every day and he's my favourite person to spend time with. I know I'll be with him forever, and I didn't think I'd get a chance at this kind of love. When I gave him his receipt, I didn't know I'd be giving him my number four months later."
