Lucy’s not actually a giraffe. She’s really a 39-year old woman from London who has been on – and goes on – a lot of dates in her search for The One.
But obviously going on dates and then blogging about them would be tricky if the guys in question knew she was taking notes. So anonymity is key! She also needs to stay secret from her friends and colleagues because, very occasionally, Lucy has – gasp! – sex, and blogs about that too.
So why a giraffe? No reason, really, except that Lucy is quite tall, and likes giraffes.
