Natalie on Adam
Hey Natalie, how long have you been single?
I’ve been single for two years now.
How did you prepare for your date?
I text him to make sure he was coming and then had a drink to calm the nerves.
What kind of man were you hoping for?
I was hoping for someone funny and chatty so the date wouldn’t be awkward.
Where did you go for your date?
We went to As You Like It.
What were your first impressions of Adam?
He text me when he got there asking if I wanted a drink which I thought was really nice and then was immediately chatty when I got there which made it less nerve-wracking.
What was your favourite memory of the evening?
Nothing in particular, it was all fun!
If Adam was a flavour of ice cream what would he be?
He’d be strawberry because he was so sweet.
Are you glad you signed up for Blind Date? Would you recommend the experience to other people?
My friend signed me up when we were drunk but I had nothing to lose by going on the date and it was fun so I would recommend.
Will you see each other again? If so, what will your second date be?
We went for food a few nights after!
If you were to sum Adam up in three words what would they be?
Polite, chatty and intelligent.
If you had to compare yourselves to a celebrity couple, who would it be?
Adam on Natalie
What made you sign up for Blind Date?
My friend signed me up for the blind date as she wanted me to find somebody, but I was actually interested in it too as dates are always fun and I’d never had a blind date before.
How did your date go?
I’m not going to lie, it went better than expected! I didn’t think much would come of the blind date but conversation flowed well and it felt like we really got on well with each other.
What did you get up to?
We went to As You Like It for a few drinks.
What were your first impressions of Natalie?
What did you talk about? Were there any topics you avoided?
We chatted about all sorts from family to ambitions. We didn’t talk about past relationships (but who really wants to talk about that on a first date, it’s a bit deep).
If Natalie was a cocktail what would she be and why?
Anything with a fireball in. Red and fiery.
Out of all the dates you’ve been on where does this one rank?
I’m not going to lie, it was a really good date and I would probably put it top.
Will you see each other again? What will your second date be?
We’ve already had our second date a few days after the first. We went for such a great curry down by the quayside and then spoons of course.
If you were to sum her up in three words what would they be?
Funny, ambitious, confident.
