BLIND DATE

Blind Date (in Quarantine)

Flaming Hot Tikka meets Spicy Vegan Dhal – will our very own Lifestyle editor, Hannah Frost, find what she’s looking for in another English 3rd Year, Chloe Wescott? We sent them on a virtual Blind Date and this is how it went…

Chloe Wescott

CHLOE ON HANNAH

What were you looking for?

A little spark of joy in a tough time, a few giggles and hopefully a connection.

Did their first impression match up to your expectations?

Absolutely! She’s beautiful, sassy and very kind.

What was the state of their Quarantine Bunker?

Beautifully organized bedroom in her parent’s home, (nice colour scheme!)

Topics of conversation?

Hot beverages, Uni deadlines, the world generally dying and things that make us happy. Self-love, best and worst snacks and fave meals, what we’ll do after COVID.

Best and worst things about the date?

Laughing together about nothing much :)

If Hannah was a curry, what would they be?

Flaming hot Tikka

What do you think they made of you?

I hope she liked me :) I think I’m a bit shy at first

How did it end?

Parent barged in with usual terrible timing needing help with something downstairs. Apologised and had to scoot off. Oh the joys of living at home.

And … would you have kissed??

Yes.

Is there anything you’d change about the evening?

Would’ve liked to say goodbye properly! Or better yet, be in a real coffee house or bar.

Marks out of 10?

10 :)

Would you go out when this is over?

Yes!

HANNAH ON CHLOE

What were you looking for?

A cute, fun date!

Did their first impression match up to your expectations?

Yes, she was probably a bit better

What was the state of their Quarantine Bunker?

Cute! There was lots of sunshine :)

Topics of conversation?

We talked about the quarantine, obviously. We also talked about pets, she showed me one of her dogs, which was adorable, and we also talked about moon pig cards haha

Best and worst things about the date?

Best thing- it was super easy to talk to her, I felt really happy and excited. Worst thing- probably that we couldn’t see each other face to face?

If Chloe was a curry, what would they be?

Vegan dhal- spicy, full of flavour, but also really wholesome

What do you think they made of you?

I *hope* that she thought I was cute and fun?

How did it end?

She had to go help her mum design a card for moon pig, but we ended on good terms!

And … would you have kissed??

Yes

Is there anything you’d change about the evening?

I would have wanted it to last longer, and I would have wanted to see her in person, obviously haha

Marks out of 10?

8/10 (only because we did it through a screen)

Would you go out when this is over?

If she’ll have me, of course!
