Appuntamento al buio: ‘Oh God, he looks like one of my exes!'

Cosa speravi?
Chemistry.

Prime impressioni?
Oh God, he looks like one of my exes!

[object Window]?
Education, as he is a newly retired head and I have just started work as a learning support assistant in a school. We also talked a bit about Brexit. He actually introduced the subject, and I couldn’t agree more with him.

Qualsiasi momento imbarazzante?
When we parted – I didn’t feel like giving more than a polite goodbye.

Buone maniere a tavola?
No disappointment. I really appreciated that he wanted to share the vegan choices. I don’t force my veganism on others, but like it if someone makes an effort.

Best thing about Miles?
He seems kind, appreciative of the good things in life and has emotional as well as practical intelligence.

Would you introduce Miles to your friends?
I would definitely introduce him as a friend as he seemed like a lovely man.

Describe Miles in three words
Kind, intelligent and confident.

Cosa pensi che abbia fatto di te?
I think he liked me and gave me a great compliment about my art, which I really appreciated. Cheers for that, Miles!

Sei andato avanti da qualche parte?
We didn’t, as we both had to catch the last train.

E... hai baciato?
The evening was not sealed with a kiss.

Se potessi cambiare una cosa della serata quale sarebbe?
Some chemistry between us. I wasn’t attracted to him, although I thought he was great and so easy to talk to.

Segna fuori 10?
10. He is a gorgeous human being.

Ti incontreresti di nuovo?
I would meet him again, for a friendly outing.

Cosa speravi?
Great conversation with someone new over a delicious meal and good wine.

Prime impressioni?
Petite, pretty, and extremely colourful from the waist down.

[object Window]?
The food and wine (which were great). Veganism. Brexi. Populism. Ways to be optimistic. Arte. Travel. Bonding with cats. And love in your fuck-it-50s.

Qualsiasi momento imbarazzante?
Saying goodbye. Not sure why. Maybe we were both wondering whether or not to suggest exchanging numbers.

Buone maniere a tavola?
We were sharing plates, with the risk of double dipping, sleeves in the sauce or elbowing a dish into your date’s lap. Sylvia was a pleasure to eat with.

Best thing about Sylvia?
Her compassion and care for others.

Would you introduce Sylvia to your friends?
Certainly.

Describe Sylvia in three words
Creativo, thoughtful, fun.

What do you think she made of you?
I’ve a feeling I went on too long about Sylvia’s art. She is sublimely talented.

Sei andato avanti da qualche parte?
No, but we stayed in the restaurant late enough to take home the unsold cakes.

E... hai baciato?
Cheeks only.

Se potessi cambiare una cosa della serata quale sarebbe?
I’d drink one less glass of wine and avoid the 3am headache.

Segna fuori 10?
8.

Ti incontreresti di nuovo?
We’ve lived our lives very differently, and are not an obvious match. But Sylvia is great company, and I’d like to get to know her better – so yes.
