Dom on Liusaidh

Hello Dom, why did you sign up for Blind Date?
Well my friends were already looking for a girl for me, so I thought I’d make it more formal. They put quite a lot of pressure on it going well but I went into it with no expectations because at least that way I can’t be disappointed, I’m only going to be somewhat happily surprised.
At Monument there was someone in a very very similar outfit to me – the same jeans, the same jacket, the only difference is that his shirt was checked instead of plain, so I had this vision that she would turn up and walk off with this other guy. 

Your celebrity crush is Ellie Rowsell, but if Liusaidh was a Wolf Alice song which one would she be and why?
She’d be ‘Beautifully Unconventional’ because she is beautifully unconventional.

What were your first impressions – apart from that you thought she’d walk off with another man?
She seemed really nice, quite quiet at first but I suppose on a blind date you are going to be quiet at the start. She opened up as the date went along. 

What did you get up to on your date?
We went for cocktails at a bar called Tokyo and then to The Mile Castle – I like to keep it classy. We even ordered on the app.

If Liusaidh was a cocktail what would she be and why?
She’d be a strawberry daiquiri – sweet and fruity, not the icy part. 

I was going out with my friend after and he kept trying to convince me to bring my date along, he couldn’t believe I was there for so long.

Did you have a lot in common?
I don’t know, that’s quite hard to say. We had a bit in common but I wouldn’t say loads. We talked about everything – I was with her for four hours so we had a lot to cover. We talked a lot about the Courier, she was interested in the insider perspective.

What are three words to describe Liusaidh?
Pretty, bubbly and funny – oh wait, doesn’t bubbly encompass funny?

You’re a music editor at /The Courier/, but if she was a radio station which one would she be? And don’t say Radio 4.
I think 4 is pretty good! You can’t tell me that as a kid when the Archers’ theme tune came on you didn’t buzz off your tits. But Liusaidh was quite into hip hop so maybe Capital. 

Will there be a second date?
Yes I think so, or at least I hope so. We added each other on Snapchat but we haven’t really been in touch though.

Would you recommend the Courier’s Blind Date?
Yeah, I really enjoyed it. It was something a bit different.

Liusaidh on Dom

What were you looking for when you signed up for blind date?
When I signed up for blind date I was looking forward to meeting someone new and stepping outside my comfort zone. 

What’s your normal type and how did Dom compare?
My usual type is someone who is easy to talk to and that I have a lot in common with. Dom was definitely up there, he had good chat and we had a lot to talk about. 

What were your first impressions of Dom?
My first impressions of Dom were that he is very friendly and dressed well. 

If Dom was a flavour of crisps which one would he be and why?
He’d be prawn cocktail because it is a very interesting flavour and it’s a classic favourite with a bit of edge. 

What were the best and worst parts of your date?
The best part of the date was his music recommendations and the cocktails and I couldn’t say a worst part, the whole night was very enjoyable. 

What did you get up to on your date?
We went for cocktails at Tokyo then went to spoons for a few more affordable drinks. 

We have already arranged to see each other again next week to go for some lunch 

Would you rather have a trip to Japan or a second date with Dom?
A trip to Tokyo because it’s on my bucket list but a second date follows closely behind. 

What are three words to describe Dom?
Friendly, adventurous, smart 

Will there be a second date?
We have already arranged to see each other again next week to go for some lunch. 

How did you find your blind date experience?
It was a fun and refreshing experience to talk to a complete stranger and I would definitely recommend it.
