This week, computing science student Oli went for pizza with stage one dietetics student Brenna!

Hi Brenna! What made you sign up for blind date this year?

I fancied doing something a bit different and had always wanted to give a blind date a go.  My friend sent it to me on Instagram and I thought it would be fun.

What were your first impressions of your Oli?

He was very friendly, chatty and polite and easy to have a conversation with.

What sort of topics did guys talk about? 

Food, our courses, societies we are part of, where we are from and our families.

What pizza did you have?

Chicken, pepper, mushroom, sweetcorn, tomato, aubergine and pineapple.

Describe your date as one pizza toping and why? 

All of them, because the place we went to had unlimited toppings.

Do you think you’ll see each other again?

Probably not romantically, but he was lovely so I would be happy to be friends.

What would you rate the experience out of 5 stars? 

 The process of signing up was very easy, information about the date and where to go was very clear and Oli was very easy to talk to. 

Hello Oli! What made you sign up for blind date?

My flat mate (Marina Snyder) sent me the Instagram post as I wanted to get back into the dating scene and I thought this could be a fun idea.

What were your first impressions of Brenna ?

Brenna was pretty, energetic, and interesting to speak with.

What sort of topics did guys talk about?

We talked about our courses, how nice the location was, what we thought about Newcastle, our families back home and how our lives compare at home in comparison to at University.

What pizza did you have?

I had the cheese burger pizza, a very nice (and extremely large) pizza which, unsurprisingly, tasted just like a cheese burger!

Describe your date as one pizza toping and why?

The date was like a pineapple, unexpectedly really fun and not as nerve racking as I anticipated, with a surprising sweetness that made the whole ordeal fun and fruitful.

What did you have in common?

We had a fair bit in common, from liking to explore and go on walks to being spontaneous and up for doing random things (like the blind date).

Do you think you’ll see each other again?

As fun as the date was we didn’t have that much time to connect. Brenna seems lovely and whilst I would be down to see her again but I don’t think we had the proper time to make that connection.

What would you rate the experience out of 5 stars?

4 stars
