Mostly summatives stress and our reasons for staying over during the break.

How would they describe you?

She said she really liked my jumper so, well-dressed and confident.

Describe them in three words.

Talkative, cheerful, tall.

When we realised I had gotten off with her housemate in Jimmy’s last month.

Which Durham college would you place them in and why?

Probably South, I just really get that kind of vibe from her.

Did they meet your expectations? Any surprises?

I think we both felt we were too different at first, so I suppose I was surprised we ended up having quite a nice chat about F1.

Is a second date on the cards?

If we have time, I don’t see why not.

He was sort of rude I won’t lie – laughed at my wet clothes.

Revision, landlord troubles, him getting off with my friend at Jimmy’s.

How would they describe you?

Blond, very flirty

Most of it was awkward, the worst bit was probably that he’d already eaten, so was just watching me eat my pancakes.

Hatfield. Big Hatfield vibes.

I didn’t really have any expectations, but I suppose I’m surprised he seemed a bit keen for a second date.

He does seem nice, but I don’t think so.
