Daniel, English, University, 2nd Year

First impressions:

Extremely awkward, for some reason we ended up messaging for ages with the audio on but cameras off, very bizarre, just heard a lot of breathing! Probably a result of my lousy personal skills.

“We knew some of the same people.”

Did it meet up to your expectations? 

I mean, I don’t really know what my expectations were…

What was the highlight: 

We knew some of the same people.

What was the most embarrassing moment: 

We knew some of the same people.

Describe the date in 3 words: 

Embarrassing, awkward, but she was sweet (that’s six)

Is a second date on the cards: 

Alas no.

Lindsay, Music, Keble, 1st Year

First impressions?

If this was an episode of ’Take Me Out’ he wouldn’t get a “blackout” straight away but he might be needing some “Paddy love” by the end. 

Did it meet up to your expectations? 

It was a pleasant conversation when we eventually started talking. (First 30 mins were spent Zoom-texting one another – but you know, each to their own). A sweet guy but pretty much zero banter which was a non-starter. All in all, he is probably the perfect guy – just not for me.

“I got called ‘niche’ – I’m taking it as a compliment.”

What was the highlight: 

The end.

Only joking! Probably when I got called ‘niche’ – I’m taking it as a compliment. 

What was the most embarrassing moment: 

When he declared that he hates Christmas.  

Describe the date in 3 words: 

Not totally shambolic.

Is a second date on the cards: 

Hmm… probably not.
