Kirstin Rodgers

Kirstin on Sam

What were your first impressions?

Well, it looked like he’d made a bit of an effort in his cute little shirt.

What do you think of the choice of venue?

We went to JC’s, so was nice and sociable as it wasn’t too busy.

Any striking conversation points?

Well as it turns out, we both row…Small world!

Did you wonder why he wasn’t in a relationship at any point?

It didn’t happen to cross my mind at that time!

If you were to be married and have babies, what would you want your baby to inherit?

Definitely the seal-like laugh… Hilarious.

Out of ten, what is your compatibility score with the other person?

I guess a 5/6… It seemed like we had some things in common.

Would you introduce him to your parents?

I think my parents would worry about who I was socialising with at university, if that day ever came.

Generally how did you think the date went?

It was a laugh I guess… Can’t go wrong when you end up in Tooters!

Would you like to meet again?

Well… I’ll see him around with the rowing club I suppose!

Sam on Kirstin

What were your first impressions?

I expected worse.

What do you think of the choice of venue?

It was alright, although I would have preferreda less pub quiz atmosphere as I struggled to hold conversation as I attempted to answer all the questions.

Any striking conversation points?

All we talked about was rowing.

Did you wonder why she wasn’t in a relationship at any point?

Yes, because she is perfect.

If you were to be married and have babies, what would you want your baby to inherit?

You will find out soon.

Any potential for a kiss?

Come to Captains’ Bar on a Wednesday.

Out of ten, what is your compatibility score with the other person?

An awkward three. Although, ironically my friends say that we are a ten.

Would you introduce her to your parents?

Yes, when I win the Temple Cup at Henley.

Generally how did you think the date went?

Love is a gift. A gift so beautiful that only the Waterfront could give it to me. Therefore, the date went well. In terms of how it’s going to feel in the rowing commitee – awkward.

Would you like to meet again?

Every Wednesday.
