Blind date: 'We were both eating on our beds'


Hazel on Charlie

What were you hoping for?
This could be the most awkward experience ever, but I am so into that.

First impressions?
Really pretty: her hair is awesome and she is so much cooler than me.

What did you talk about?
Our jobs, food, posters in our teenage bedrooms, our love of the sea, canned macaroni cheese on toast, and white chocolate Magnums.

Any awkward moments?
Neither of us knew how to use Uber Eats or take an in-call selfie.

Good table manners?
Well, we were both eating in bed, which is much more awkward than you realise until you try it. But her table manners were excellent.

How long did you stay on the call?
Three hours! Pretty good going.

Best thing about Charlie?
She laughs easily, seemed genuine and lives life to enjoy it.

Did you introduce her to your housemates?
My housemate is my ex, so while that could have been the most brilliantly awkward thing in the world, it’s probably best for everyone I didn’t.

Describe Charlie in three words
Funny, enthusiastic, interesting.

What do you think she made of you?
Probably that I am a bit weird and intense, and a messy eater, sadly.

Any connection issues?
No, which was good.

And… did you swap numbers?
We agreed not to, because I live in London and she’s in Manchester. So even after lockdown ends, it didn’t seem likely to click.

How did the call end?
We got the coolest objects in our bedrooms to hold up for the selfie, which was great because it turns out Charlie had an amazing Pride axolotl picture, confirming she is indeed much cooler than me.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
Probably not put the avocado down my bra halfway through the call.

Marks out of 10?
8 – but the -2 is for me spending a lot of time thinking, “I should go and get some cutlery” but not doing it and continuing to smear wasabi on my bedsheets.

Would you meet again in person?
I think we live too far apart.

Charlie on Hazel

What were you hoping for?
A couple of hours not to think about the current situation.

First impressions?
Confident – and cool eye makeup.

What did you talk about?
The current situation, food, work.

Any awkward moments?
When she was talking, it felt unnatural to be super-silent, but I needed to be so I could hear.

Good table manners?
We were both eating on our beds. Table manners don’t exist in quarantine, right?

How long did you stay on the call?
Just over three hours.

Best thing about Hazel?
She has the coolest life stories.

Did you introduce her to your housemates?
I barely know my housemates.

Describe Hazel in three words
Interesting, talkative and easy-going.

What do you think she made of you?
I don’t know.

Any connection issues?
Luckily, no.

And… did you swap numbers?
No. We live far apart, so it didn’t seem like it could go anywhere.

How did the call end?
With some lovely thank yous for a good evening.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
To have met in person.

Marks out of 10?
6 – it didn’t feel like a date. It felt like a video chat with friends.

Would you meet again in person?
If there wasn’t so much distance.

Stop press!!

Liam and Lizzie (Blind date, 27 January 2018, both 8/10s, and yes, they kissed) have just got engaged. “We hope to marry in 2022, with lockdown a distant memory,” Liam emailed to say. “However, it made me even more sure I wanted to marry her”. We’re proper over the moon.’
