Blind date: ‘I got everything I hoped for. No question ‘| Life and Style


Florrie in James

What did you expect?
To meet Prince Charming, to be rescued from my loveless life, and to live happily ever after. I grew up with fairy tales.

First impressions?
Kind, Handsome, and Familiar – We realized that we had mixed in the same circles a few decades ago.

What were you talking about?
Snoop Dogg, kinesiology, ex, addiction and recovery, 90s and 2000s, Ibiza, and we sing together.

Any awkward moment?
I was embarrassed when I found out that James applied for Blind Date last week. I have been applying regularly since 2015!

Good table manners?
He wasn’t particularly interested in eating as the talk was very interesting.

How long did you stay on the call?
Almost four hours, and we probably could have chewed the fat for many more. But I had scheduled a call with my best friend so I could get dirty.

The best of James?
He is so open and honest, therefore a great conversationalist.

The ones you don’t know yet.

What do you think he made of you?
Hopefully kind, funny, smart, and alluring, albeit a bit fuzzy due to the quality of the video stream.

Any connection problem?
James got cut off a couple of times due to his wifi coverage.

And … did you exchange numbers?
Yes, and they followed each other on Instagram.

How did the call end?
We said goodbye on the fourth attempt.

If you could change one thing at night, what would it be?
That we had met in person and seen where it took us all night.
