Blind date: ‘I sensed she wanted to stay out longer’

Natalie, 30, freelance journalist, meets Antonio, 34, structural engineer

Natalie on Antonio

What were you hoping for?
A bit of flirting with someone new who doesn’t take themselves too seriously.

First impressions?
I arrived three minutes late. He was pretty relaxed and greeted me with a friendly hug.

What did you talk about?
Day drinking, dating apps and how tasty the food was at the vegan restaurant (but how we’d always like meat on the menu).

Any awkward moments?
None.

Good table manners?
Yes, he ate pretty fast and I am slow because I always talk.

Best thing about Antonio?
He was charming.

Would you introduce him to your friends? 
Maybe.

Describe Antonio in three words
Happy, cheeky, friendly.

What do you think he made of you?
I didn’t catch much of a vibe from him and he didn’t flirt. Probably that I really like a bottomless brunch.

Did you go on somewhere?
We went to a pub round the corner for one more drink.

And… did you kiss?
No.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
Nothing, it was a nice date.

Marks out of 10?
7.

Would you meet again?
He didn’t ask for my number, so no.

Antonio on Natalie

What were you hoping for?
A good chat, plenty of wine and not to make a fool of myself.

First impressions?
Well-dressed and smiley.

What did you talk about?
Bottomless brunches, social media, holidays.

Any awkward moments?
None.

Good table manners?
Yes, we both ate with our hands. It was a burger, after all.

Best thing about Natalie?
She’s a keen red-wine drinker.

Would you introduce her to your friends? 
Sure, they would get on.

Describe Natalie in three words
Friendly, funny and confident.

What do you think she made of you?
OK-ish, until I called it a day after a drink in a pub. I sensed she wanted to stay out longer.

Did you go on somewhere?
A pub nearby.

And… did you kiss?
No.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
The day of the week. I would have stayed out longer if it wasn’t a school night.

Marks out of 10?
7.

Would you meet again? 
Maybe as friends. Oh, and for a bottomless brunch, which we talked about extensively.
