Eleanor on Tilda

So, how did you find the date?
I had a lovely time. Great company, location (and drinks!)

How did you find the date location?
The bar was incredible, I will definitely be taking my friends there. The menu was laid out like a travel brochure, it was really cool. The staff were all lovely too, they were so enthusiastic when I told them I was there for a blind date.

What do you look for in a potential partner?
Main thing is a good conversation. I can talk people’s ears off if they let me so ideally I’d want a partner who can balance the conversation well and ask as many questions as I do.

The SU because she had lots of hobbies.

No, we haven’t.

What made you sign up for Blind Date?
I signed up because I thought it would be a bit of fun and I never thought I would actually get matched with someone!

What would your ideal date night be?
Ideal date night would probably be just a drink at a bar and maybe listening to some live music.

What kind of girl were you looking for?
I was looking for someone with a good sense of humour and a strong character, just someone I vibe with.

How did your date go?
It was nice, very brief though because she left early as she had a 9am the next day.

What were your first impressions when you set eyes on Eleanor?
Not usually the type of girl I would go for but she seemed lovely.

It was a decent match but not love at first sight kinda vibes.

If you were to sum her up in three words what would they be?
Nice, friendly, laid-back.

Was Alvinos a romantic date setting?
I definitely think Alvinos is a really cool bar and they have great offers on cocktails, I’ll probably be coming back here again.

Did you have a lot in common?
We had some things in common, but a lot of them were because we go to the same uni.

Will you see each other again?
Not sure we will be seeing each other again.
