Categories:
TLDR

Adam, Third year, Archaeology and Anthropology

What were your first impressions?
Smiley and pretty.

What did you talk about?
General plonk, (course, home etc.) Also my shit car and our mutual learning difficulties.

Best thing about them?
Interesting and very easy to talk to. Oh and her sexy knees.

What did you eat?
Bangers and mash. I was bloody hungry. It was good, really good. Their ‘mash of the day’ was fantastic I think they might have put white wine in it. Would definitely have again. Can I get the number of the restaurant?

Any awkwardness?
Err no I don’t think so. Apart from when the guy from the paper was taking our picture. It’ll be awful if she now says there was loads.

How did you part ways? (Mouth to mouth action/heavy petting/friendly hug?!)

Can’t remember really, probably a hug.

Out of 10?
8. Would’ve given an 8.5 but I’m worried she’s going to undercut me.
Would you see them again?
Yeah she was a nice girl. Can’t see any future dates or anything but would definitely hang out.

 

 

Grainne, Second year, History

What were your first impressions?
He looked like a nice guy.

What did you talk about?
Everything- university, where we come from, nights out etc.

Best thing about them?
Really talkative and good sense of humour.

What did you eat?
Bacon, brie and cranberry ciabatta with chunky chips – really good!

Any awkwardness?
No, not really

How did you part ways? (Mouth to mouth action/heavy petting/friendly hug?!)
Friendly hug

Out of 10?
8

Would you see them again?
Yeah, but probably just as friends
