For him, love was a number written on a bathroom stall.

According to Metro News, Ellis was on his way to a pub when he stopped by a public bathroom in West Yorkshire.

He noticed a phone number scribbled on a the wall next to a crude statement, “If you want a good shag, call Donna on…”

Ellis texted the number something extremely simple and pure.

Ellis didn’t reveal how he found the number right away. When he finally confessed, it was revealed that Roberts’ ex wrote her number and the crude statement on the wall.

“I should thank my ex,” she told Metro News. “He did me a favor.”

Not that anyone should ever find love in that way, but it sure worked for this couple.
