Blind date: ‘One of the waiters seemed to be chatting us up, but that was awkward for him, not us’ | life and style
Amy on Grace
What were you hoping for? to hoot.
First impressions? She has a lovely, soft American accent, and made me comfortable quickly.
What did you talk about? being bisexual Her de ella astute American observations on British people. How doomed the couples are on Love Is Blind. Her tattoos of her. Impulsivity.
Any awkward moments? One of the male waiters seemed to be chatting us up, but that was awkward for him, not us.
Good table manners? We decided early on that table-manner judgment was for squares.
Best thing about Grace? We belly-laughed the whole night. She was open and authentic, and her pretty face lit up when she talked. And I loved that we were on the same page about eating and drinking the whole menu.
Would you introduce her to your friends? She can talk about the silly and the serious. She’d get along with them fine.
Describe Grace in three words? Insightful, fun, courageous.
What do you think she made of you? I panicked at an early question and said rice cakes were my favorite snack, so she probably thought I was a loser.
Did you go somewhere? I had rail replacements to Brighton to navigate but I regret not going to the pub.
And…did you kiss? I wish I could give you some juicy gossip but no, we didn’t.
If you could change one thing about the evening what would it be? A bit more sexual chemistry.
Marks out of 10? 9. It would have been great to have more of a romantic spark. Would you meet again? And it is. I’d like to take her for another margarita.
What were you hoping for? Someone with a smart sense of humor, similar politics and game for over-ordering tacos and tequila.
First impressions? Intimidatingly pretty but also swore like a sailor, which was endearing.
What did you talk about? How annoying it is when people try to invalidate bisexuality. TrashTV. The insanity of internet dating. We talked a bit about our jobs (she’s an artist, which is amazing) and how we got to this place in our lives. We both agreed that How being single is great. Any awkward moments? Honestly, no! It felt very easy.
Good table manners? We both wondered who comments on table manners at a taco restaurant.
Best thing about Amy? Her energy – it’s infectious. She’s got that whole cool-girl thing down without being pretentious
Would you introduce her to your friends? Definitely.
Describe Amy in three words? Spontaneous, light-hearted, independent.
What do you think she made of you? I think she felt comfortable around me and laughed at things I said (unless she was humoring me!). I’m just not sure if I was her type of her.
Did you go somewhere? I invited her to another bar, but she had to get back to Brighton as it was late.
And…did you kiss? Nope.
If you could change one thing about the evening what would it be? The restaurant was very loud, so it was hard to hear sometimes.
Marks out of 10? 9.
Would you meet again? Definitely. We’ve exchanged numbers, so let’s see!
