Two local singles, one blind date-anything could happen on the...
Last week’s couple, Ruby and Nic each took around half an hour to get ready. Both went for a casual look Ruby wore a black blouse, skirt and flats, while Nic wore black skinny jeans and a hooded button-up polo. Ruby’s first impression of Nic was that he seemed really nice, if a little shy, while Nic thought he couldn’t go wrong meeting someone else with a septum piercing. The pair had easy conversations over dinner and found plenty of shared interests. Ruby and Nic saw Wasted on
the Young at the movies, which confused both of them equally. Both said they wouldn’t mind catching up again and have become friends on Facebook. Overall, Ruby and Nic rated their compatibility:
What's your longest relationship?
Amanda: 10 years Matthew: Six months
How long have you been single?
Amanda: Two years Matthew: Five years
Dedcribe the worst date you've ever been on:
Amanda: I can’t really say I’ve had a bad date, they’ve all been very easy-going, dinner and drinks and no pressure type dates.
Matthew: Let’s just say we parted ways on unfriendly terms after a weekend together.
Dedcribe the best date you've ever been on:
Amanda: Nice dinner out with a limo and a nice hotel after.
Matthew: I really like just going out for dinner. I took a friend to Rydges for dinner for her birthday and it was a really romantic setting, so that’s probably been the best ‘ date’ so far.
What are you expecting from tonight?
Amanda: If nothing comes of it, hopefully make a new friend.
Matthew: I can generally talk to anyone, though in a one on one setting I’d expect a little awkwardness. Hopefully I can make a new friend though if nothing else.
Why have you volunteered for Savvy set-up?
Amanda: Because there’s no decent men – literally – in the city.
Matthew: Why not? I just read it and thought, why not have a go? I like to meet random people, and this is pretty random.
Decribe your perfect partner:
Amanda: Easygoing, I guess. Someone I can talk to.
Matthew: Someone that is kind of sporty, into fitness and a healthy lifestyle that doesn’t mind the outdoors but also enjoys a movie, and I’d like to say someone that enjoys cooking because the way to my heart is definitely through my stomach!
