Blind Date: When Zoe Met Jake

Zoe Alford, a 19-year-old English Literature student, and Jake Wilson, a  23-year-old German student, meet in JC’s for The Waterfront blind date.

Zoe on Jake

What were your first impressions?
Great first impression – he kindly offered to buy me a drink even though I’d already bought one myself.

What do you think of the choice of venue?
JC’s was practically dead at the time, but I was quite glad because it meant we could get a good conversation going without being interrupted.

Any striking conversation points?
His story about getting drunk and falling off a train was definitely a highlight!

Did you wonder why he wasn’t in a relationship at any point?
Yes I did wonder why, because Jake was really easy going and great to be
around.

If you were to be married and have babies, what would you want your baby to inherit?
I’d want them to inherit his eyesight. There’s no way I’d want our children putting the ‘blind’ into blind date like I do.

Any potential for a kiss?
I don’t think we’d ever stop talking for long enough!

Out of ten, what is your compatibility score with the other person?
I’d say about 8 out of 10, we seemed to get on really well.

Would you introduce him to your parents?
Absolutely, my mum would love me to bring home a fellow gin lover.

Would you like to meet again?
I don’t see why not.

Jake on Zoe

What were your first impressions?
If I am honest, wow!

What do you think of the choice of venue?
Good ol’ JC’s – nice and familiar, but watching them attempt to put Xmas decorations up was rather amusing. Thankfully we were not sat slam bang in the middle but as the place was dead, we were nearly the sole punters and the bar staff knew what was going on, so we got a few sniggers our way.

Any striking conversation points?
Both share the love for cold breakfast pizza! Sharing experiences of an eccentric lecturer we’d both had despite doing separate degree courses, we chatted for ages so there’d be loads that could be put here.

Did you wonder why she wasn’t in a relationship at any point?
Yep, I did wonder as to why because she’s so nice!

If you were to be married and have babies, what would you want your baby to inherit?
Nothing from me that’s for sure! If she can secretly fly or has superpowers, then those I suppose!

Any potential for a kiss?
A gentleman doesn’t kiss and tell!

Out of ten, what is your compatibility score with the other person?
Perhaps a cheeky 8?

Would you introduce her to your parents?
The thought of introducing someone to the parents is always a terrifying concept, as images of Meet the Fockers spring to mind. However, as she didn’t meet me and subsequently run away, a case of sure, Dr Pepper I think.

Would you like to meet again?
Yes, I would. She’s a lovely lady. Thank you good night, much love!
