Blind date: ‘We disagreed about whether aliens existed’

What were you hoping for?
Romance, 물론이야! But at the least, someone who shared my passion for music and fitness.

First impressions?
As soon as I sat down, he was very charming and I felt less nervous.

What did you talk about?
The English police force, how to plan the best trip to Disney World, and where Nottingham is. He also gave me some Netflix suggestions.

Any awkward moments?
We disagreed on whether aliens existed and had ever visited Earth.

Good table manners?
Willing to share food – that’s always a good sign, isn’t it?

Best thing about Ash?
It was easy to talk to him. He had some incredible stories about his work – from saving a swan on a motorway to herding loose horses in a city.

Would you introduce him to your friends?
We both love festivals, and if Fall Out Boy play at a festival in the UK, I’d happily invite him along.

Describe Ash in three words
Charming, confident, kind.

What do you think he made of you?
It was quite hard to read him.

Did you go on somewhere?
I caught the bus, he went on the tube.

And… did you kiss?
I gave him the traditional two kisses on the cheek.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
Ordering another plate of melted chocolate brownie.

Marks out of 10?
8 – no sparks but Ash is a lovely guy.

Would you meet again?
Not unless he arrests me one day.

What were you hoping for?
To meet someone interesting, who feels as awkward as me about having their picture taken on the street.

First impressions?
Very pleasant and polite, and I liked her rocker look.

What did you talk about?
Work, 폐쇄, TV, music, film, Disney, the food, and aliens.

Any awkward moments?
나를 위해, 예. I don’t know if she noticed, but a bit of spicy food caught me off-guard and I was unable to speak because of it.

Good table manners?
전적으로.

Best thing about Cam?
She has a great sense of humour and an interesting background.

Would you introduce her to your friends?
예, I don’t see why not.

Describe Cam in three words
Relaxed, quirky and inquisitive.

What do you think she made of you?
Hopefully, she thought I was nice and interesting.

Did you go on somewhere?
아니.

And… did you kiss?
Only on the cheek, as a goodbye.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
Not sitting next to the front door of the restaurant. The door went into my chair a few times.

Marks out of 10?
8. I had a lovely time.

Would you meet again?
We didn’t swap numbers, so probably not.
