Blind date: ‘He recommended some “basic” politics books for me to read’

Alex, left, and George.

Alex on George

What were you hoping for?
A pleasant surprise and a fun time.

First impressions?
I was surprised by how tall he was, but overall, good.

What did you talk about?
Where we stood on the political spectrum, and our worst drunk moments.

Any awkward moments?
Deciding what to drink; we were both being too polite.

Good table manners?
We had a cheeseboard, which was difficult to eat elegantly. He said he wouldn’t judge me.

Best thing about George?
Later on in the date he relaxed and wasn’t afraid to give his opinion, which I think is a good quality.

Would you introduce him to your friends?
As soon as he said he had arranged a 00s-themed party, I knew he’d gel with my friends.

Describe George in three words
Fun, open, funny.

What do you think he made of you?
I asked him during our date, and he said I was warm and easy to talk to.

Did you go on somewhere?
To two more bars.

And… did you kiss?
I think he went in for one on the train platform, but I’m super awkward when it comes to PDAs, so I accidentally scuppered that.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
There is nothing I’d change.

Marks out of 10?
