Blind date: ‘He definitely found me funny’ | Have a date


Apple in Felix

What did you expect?
Meet someone cool, friendly and with my wave, meet and meet when I move to London.

First impressions?
He wasn’t my usual type, but he was talkative and interested in getting to know me. Also, I was intrigued by her passion for baking!

What did you talk about?
Everything from religion to our families to goals and dating online. He’s Nigerian like my dad, so we talked about Lagos and our travels in Africa. To be honest, Felix reminded me of my dad when I was younger – similar interests and perspectives.

Any awkward moment?
Not really. Well actually, at one point he sang me a gospel song. It would have been wonderful for someone else, but I hate being serenaded.

Good table manners?
Yes. His food came about 30 minutes after mine, but he was very polite.

How long did you stay on the call?
Approximately 4.5 hours. I can speak for England, but he was the one who talked the most, so the hours accumulated.

The best of Felix?
He seems like an interesting and down-to-earth guy. I would never have predicted that she loves to bake brownies and red velvet, or that she is into pop music. It’s a shame he’s so different from me – I prefer grime, Afrobeats, etc., and I would have a plate of rice and chicken over dessert any day!

Would you introduce it to your friends?
Possibly. I have some Nigerian and Christian friends that he can get along with.

Describe Felix in three words?
With feet on the ground.

What do you think he made of you?
I’m not sure, but he complimented me halfway.

Any connection problem?
Yes, we had to reconnect at one point.

And … did you exchange numbers?
No, we changed the Instagram identifiers.

How did the call end?
I am an hour ahead in Barcelona, ​​so at midnight we end the call.

If you could change one thing about the night, what would it be?
Nothing, it was a pleasant experience.

Marks over 10?
6.5. He was a lovely boy, very polite and it was a nice chat.

Would you meet again?
Most likely not, unless they are friends.
