Blind date: ‘It’s going to be awkward if he slags me off!’ | relationships
Kat on Jack
What were you hoping for? Good food, good company and, if nothing else, a funny story to tell.
First impressions? Confident and relaxed.
What did you talk about? Alanis Morissette. Skydives and bungee jumps. Cycling and running. Our dream meals if we were on the Off Menu podcast. Weird games we play with our friends (Où est le Poulet for me and a sort of real-life Cluedo game for him).
Any awkward moments? We agreed to not slag each other off in the article. It’s going to be awkward if he goes against his word about him.
Good table manners? All good. And hopefully I managed to look like a natural using chopsticks.
Best thing about Jack? He’s so easy to talk to and asks lots of questions, which is always a good sign.
Would you introduce Jack to your friends? He seems like the kind of person who could chat to anyone, so sure.
Describe Jack in three words. Laid-back, kind, genuine.
What do you think Jack made of you? I’m really unsure, but hopefully I have enjoyed my company. We definitely had quite a few things in common.
Did you go somewhere? We didn’t, but we did stick around drinking cocktails in the restaurant until around 11pm.
And…did you kiss? Sorry to disappoint, but no.
If you could change one thing about the evening what would it be? I wish it didn’t suddenly tip it down as I was approaching the restaurant.
Marks out of 10? A strong 8.
Would you meet again? I’m not sure: a romantic spark was probably missing. But he’s definitely good company, so I’d be open to it even if just as friends.
