Blind date: Lisa and Joe

Lisa Mukubvu, Third year, Politics, Philosophy and Economics

What were your first impressions?
Sincere and easy going. The first thing we did when we sat down was to confess that we were both there for the free food. I suppose we bonded straight away on that premise.

What did you talk about?
Ancient civilisations, about the relationship between Politics and History, about travelling and experiencing different cultures, music, family

Best thing about them?
He’s not afraid to try new things, he had his steak nicht gar without a complaint, even though he usually prefers it well-cooked. I daresay he enjoyed it!

What did you eat?
Steak and salad, and a sticky toffee pudding for desert.

Any awkwardness?
Yes, when we realised we had to pay for the drinks at the end. We thought they were on the house!

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

Out of 10?
8

Would you see them again?
Maybe

Had steak – it was excellent!
