PalatiDates: “I don’t think we’re falling in love anytime soon”

Katie and Yuta, Marketing and Management and History students from South College, meet for a blind date at Spags.

Katie on Yuta

What were your first impressions of your date?

Well, we were actually in the same household in first year so our first impression was a while ago.

What did you talk about?

We just had a catch up on everything as it had been a while since we last saw each other, and we shared some college gossip.

How would they describe you?

From the date he would probably say I’m a pretty normal girl, but from when we lived together he’d probably tell a different story of how chaotic I can be.

How would you describe them?

He’s a lovely guy, he has always been very genuine and nothing but nice to me.

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

Players Wednesday because he’s sporty and I have seen him there before.

What were you hoping for? Did they deliver on your expectations?

I was hoping to join the 70% of married alumni from my blind date, but considering I already knew him, I don’t think we’re falling in love anytime soon.

Would you introduce them to your friends or family?

I’m pretty sure he already met my parents whilst moving in.

Would you like to see them again?

I doubt we’ll be going anywhere as intimate as Spags again anytime soon but I’d definitely say hi if I saw him around.
