Blind Date: Becky and Alex

We may not have Cilla Black but Blind Date is Back! Sit back and shamelessly enjoy this healthy dose of voyeurism.
Blind Date: Becky and Alex

Becky, 4th Year Geography

First impressions?

I thought he was quite cute, he looks like Justin Timberlake circa the Britney Spears era. And he seemed friendly.

Best features?

Well I used to have a massive thing for Justin Timberlake so probably the fact he looked a bit like him.

What did you have to eat?

I’m coeliac so I had a chicken and chorizo thing in a tomato sauce. It was delicious! Oh and I had a Juan Collins cocktail.

Any awkward moments?

There were a few but the worst was when I thought he said urethra. I wasn’t sure how to respond to that.

How did you say goodbye?

It was awkward. He went in for the kiss; I went in for a hug: in the end we just patted each other on the back.

Did you kiss?

No, I was too mortified.

Any potential plans for the future?

Well I gave him my number so we’ll have to see. Not sure I can recover from that goodbye, I’m still cringing.

 

Alex, 4th Year Physics

First impressions?

Pretty, nice hair and I liked her outfit.

Best features?

Her hair and her eyes.

What did you have to eat?

I had a falafel wrap with fries and a brownie. It was amazing.

Any awkward moments?

I spent the first 10 minutes fairly sure I’d once got with her on a night out so that was a bit weird before I realised I was wrong, but other than that not really.

How did you say goodbye?

We hugged.

Did you kiss?

I wanted to but I thought it might be a bit soon.

Any potential plans for the future?

I got her number so I’ll wait the standard 3 days before texting her.
