Blind date

Did Joanne and Morgan kiss?

The Guardian - Weekend - - Front | Contents -

Joanne, 24, barista

What were you hop­ing for?

A fun evening on the Guardian’s dime!

First im­pres­sions?

Cute, chatty and early.

What did you talk about?

I can’t re­ally re­mem­ber much after four ne­gro­nis and wine but: books, scum­bag Tories, com­ing out.

Any awk­ward mo­ments?

Prob­a­bly when we got kicked out of the house party we crashed. And leav­ing my knick­ers be­hind. I think I also fell over at some point.

Good ta­ble manners?

Ex­cel­lent, we both spoke with our mouths full.

Best thing about Morgan?

Her en­ergy, in­tel­li­gence and sense of hu­mour. And she was up for get­ting pissed.

Would you in­tro­duce her to your friends?

Ab­so­lutely.

De­scribe her in three words

Fun, in­ter­est­ing, fit.

What do you think she made of you?

Maybe that I talked a mile a minute and was a bit overex­cited. Also that I am “cool and hot”, be­cause that’s what she said in a text to her friends, sent when I went to the loo.

Did you go on some­where?

Yes, to that fate­ful house party.

And... did you kiss?

We did. A lot.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?

Wear bet­ter shoes for a quick get­away.

Marks out of 10?

10.

Would you meet again?

Yeah, next week.

Morgan, 24, chil­dren’s so­cial worker

What were you hop­ing for?

Some­one to break up the week.

First im­pres­sions?

Su­per tall with re­ally nice eyes.

What did you talk about?

I can’t wholly re­mem­ber. Maybe, fail­ing sex ed­u­ca­tion in UK schools and her fairly ugly but sadly es­tranged cat.

Any awk­ward mo­ments?

I walked into a glass wall at one point and my head still has a bump.

Good ta­ble manners?

Who re­ally cares?

Best thing about Joanne?

She is ob­scenely fun.

Would you in­tro­duce her to your friends?

Yes, asap.

De­scribe her in three words

Tac­tile, funny, en­gag­ing.

What do you think she made of you?

I think she thought I was re­ally great, be­cause she said she texted her friend that while she was in the bath­room.

Did you go on some­where?

Yes, to a house party we weren’t in­vited to.

And... did you kiss?

Sure did.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?

I’m strug­gling to come up with any­thing.

Marks out of 10?

10.

Would you meet again?

Yes.
