Blind Date: Emily and Jonny

Emily and Jonny don’t seem to have anything in common – but does it matter? We catch up with them after their date at Fallow to find out.

Emily – Third year, History of Art

First impressions?

He seemed and was a thoroughly nice guy!

What did you have to eat and drink?

Burgers and beer (keeping it classy).

Any awkward moments?

I was seriously nervous at the beginning, so that was incredibly awkward for me. After that, though, none at all. We’re both super chatty and confident so it was easy. We were there for 3 hours, which speaks for itself.

Is Jonny your usual type?

I don’t have one, so no. But he is the epitome of a nice Jewish boy!

Did you have much in common?

We both enjoy a laugh. Apart from that not that much but that makes for more interesting conversation.

Any secrets revealed?

Um… He likes Westlife! I don’t think it’s a secret, but it should be!

How did you say goodbye?

After tequila shots (not my idea) we had a friendly peck on the cheek.

Would you see Jonny again?

I will now I’ve found out how much free food the Jewish Society give out!

Marks out of ten?

Found my soul mate, wedding bells are clanging already 10. Mazel Tov!

 

Jonny – Third year, Economics

First impressions?

She seemed like a nice, pretty girl. Though, she was around 15 minutes late so I did have a fear of being the first guy ever to be stood up on Blind Date.

What did you have to eat and drink?

I had a spicy bean burger, chunky chips, some lager and a tequila shot at the end. Cheers Fallow!

Any awkward moments?

No – we were chatting for 2 and half hours straight! And she also seemed as if she could take a joke or two, so no awkward moments thankfully. Maybe the beginning was a little awkward, as she said she was pretty nervous and was mentioning warnings such as “falling asleep” or “passing out” during the date, so I thought this was going to be a slightly tough night initially.

Is Emily your usual type?

Fun and talkative is what I like, and she ticked those boxes.

Did you have much in common?

Other than being from London and loving dogs, not really. But that gives you more to talk about and more to learn.

Any secrets revealed?

I really can’t tell you now… Some things she told me are just not suitable for a student paper. Crazy stuff.

How did you say goodbye?

Got the digits, got the kiss on the cheek. Success.

Would you see Emily again?

Yeah, she’s cool to hang with.

Marks out of ten?

9, for the flowing conversation and great dinner. I’d say that’s a fair score!

Emily and Jonny went on their date at Fallow Café, 2A Landcross Road, Fallowfield, which has free music gigs and a quiz on Mondays.
