Hatfielder Lou and Jonny from Grey, both language students, meet for a blind date on Zoom.

Lou on Jonny

First impressions?

Charming and surprisingly normal! I felt far less awkward than I was expecting.

What did you talk about?

Our Durham horror stories, the struggles of being MFL students and the greatest TV show of all time, Glee!

Who was the first to join the call?

He was but I’m blaming that on the authentication system.

If they were a Durham night out, which one would they be?

I’ve never been on a Durham night out, so he will have to be a tesco trip for now!

How would they describe you?

Definitely talkative, maybe a little odd?

How would you describe them?

Sweet and handsome, bonus points for the cat (although I didn’t get to see it)

What was the most surprising thing about them?

Aplogies for mentioning Glee again but the man has watched Glee and that amazes me.

Any awkward moments?

Unintentionally interrupting each other far too often.

Would you meet up in person, Covid guidelines permitting?

Of course
