Blind date: Richard and Emily

Richard Crook, History, Second year and Features Editor

What were your expectations for the evening?

The promise of a free meal after 4 days of Subway BMT for dinner was a major plus.

First impressions?

Yeah, she was really excited.

What did you talk about?

I learned all about her really. Her family, friends, school, ex’s, pets, course, flatmates, allergies, her favourite Twilight and why etc. etc.

Best thing about them?

She proved she could drink any man under the table.

What did you eat?

Went for the sausage and mash and ice cream for dessert. But she really wanted the ice cream so I gave her most of it.

Any awkwardness?

She told me she voted UKIP and talked about getting out of Europe for quite a long time. That was a bit weird.

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

The friendly hug, then she sent me a friend request before we left and waited for me to accept. So we’re sorted on that one.

Out of 10?

6-

Would you see them again?

She works in the Union bar, so I’ll see her there I suppose

 

 

Emily Brown, History and American Studies, Third year

What were your expectations for the evening?

What WEREN’T my expectations for the evening

First impressions?

Helloooo tiger

What did you talk about?

Gender neutral toilets, how state schools produce a more refined person, preferred names for our seven children (I may have imagined this)

Best thing about them?

Pure, unadulterated hunk.

What did you eat?

It could’ve been manure for all I knew, I was too busy staring into those big blue eyes…

Any awkwardness?

I was expecting him to sensually spoon-feed me my pudding, so I think he was a bit confused as to why I waited five minutes before reluctantly tucking in myself.

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

Well I was going to go in for the kill – proper goodbye kiss, maybe a cheeky arse squeeze, but…

Would you see them again?

Sadly when I returned from the bar, he’d completely disappeared without a trace. I’m not worried; I’d already added him on Facebook and I recall him saying he lived opposite OP, so I guess I’ll just hang around there for the next week or two.

Out of 10?

9.5 – minus 0.5 for opting for strawberry sauce on the sundae. Otherwise, absolute perfection.

 

Richard and Emily ate at The Deaf Institute, Grosvenor Street, Manchester. Thanks to the guys down at Grosvenor Street for getting involved. To check out their menu, gig listings and have a look at what club nights are coming up visit their website www.thedeafinstitute.co.uk
