Blind date: Vicky and Dan

More solid 7’s as Dan and Vicky connect over a mutual love for folk music and Star Wars
Categories:
TLDR

Vicky, Third year, English and American Studies

What were your expectations for the evening?

Awkward silences followed by a fake emergency phonecall from my housemate calling me home roughly half an hour in

First impressions?

Shockingly pleasant, and good hair

What did you talk about?

Folk music and Star Wars and a lot in between

Best thing about them?

Easy to talk to and not at all creepy – no need for the fake get-away call, thank goodness

What did you eat?

Veggie cottage pie

Any awkwardness?

When I said I was a vegetarian and he ordered the steak and I pretended not to be silently judging him

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

He kindly waited with me for a bus, then friendly hug despite him being about 3 times my height

Out of 10? 8

Would you see them again?

He seemed pretty keen for Star Wars in 3D

 

 

Dan, Third year, Politics and International Relations & Fuse FM Station Manager

What were your expectations for the evening?
That I would be hooked up with someone mental

First impressions?
Surprisingly sane, and good looking

What did you talk about?
Films, music, my fears about graduating and how she was too much of a hippy

Best thing about them?
A tie between a great taste in music or how she was girl who actually enjoys Star Wars (very rare indeed)

What did you eat?
Steak & Sweet Potato Chips

Any awkwardness?
Discovering the hard way that you can’t hold a conversation whilst chewing through a steak, cue a couple of awkward pauses

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

Out of 10?
A solid 7

Would you see them again?
Would like to hang out again, yeah
