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.

TLDR

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.
