She purred at me like a cat. People stared at us but we didn’t care
DAVID, 43 VITAL STATISTICS
SINGLE for three years.
SOLICITOR in TV production.
WOULD LIKE TO MEET
SOMEONE intelligent, outgoing and caring, with a sense of humour.
MY LAST long-term relationship ended in 2020. Prior to that, I had a number of relationships that lasted a couple of years.
NOT REALLY, I was looking forward to meeting her.
AS SHE walked in, I thought: ‘wow, she looks just like the actress kim Basinger.’ she has a gorgeous smile and wonderful eyes you could go swimming in. squeezing past another table to get to ours, she apologised with a ‘sorry if my bottom is in your face’ and I knew immediately we’d get on.
EASY TO TALK TO?
WE WERE talking so much we didn’t even order a drink for 20 minutes. she recently lost both her parents and told me it’s really made her appreciate life. I have nothing but respect for the adventures she’s planning as a result. It felt like a fourth or fifth date and that we just knew each other. the love of my life is my cat, evelyn, and rebecca pretended to mimic evelyn’s purring. I burst out laughing so loudly people stared, but I was having too good a time to care.
NONE at all, other than we ate a lot of food! we both hate waste so we pushed through to eat everything and then ordered dessert.
DID SPARKS FLY?
ABSOLUTELY — we got on so well. we flirted a little, too, and swapped numbers. I told her we have to meet again as she owes me a bottle of wine for the tips I gave her for her south african trip.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET AGAIN?
AS SOON as she gets back. she’s from Brighton and I have fun memories of playing in a band there, so I’m excited to go back. I’m giving our date eight out of ten as I want to see her again to make up the final two!
WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE THOUGHT OF YOU?
I HOPE she thinks I’m fun, that we got on well and she would like to see me again. outside the train station, she bent down on one knee to fix her shoe and I made a joke about her proposing too soon. It could have been awkward, but I loved that she just went along with the joke.
WOULD YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS LIKE HER?
MY FRIENDS would love her. I’d hesitate to introduce her to some of them in case they liked her too much!
