PalatiDates: “It gave me strong year 6 disco vibes”

James on Grace

What were your first impressions of your date?

She loved to tell dad jokes. As soon as we sat down she hit me with a classic ‘knock knock’ joke and wouldn’t stop laughing. I respect how much she backed her own sense of humour.

What did you talk about?

All the important first date topics: life, dreams, aspirations. Oh, and she wouldn’t stop gushing about some bloke called Navid from The Apprentice. Made me a bit jealous…

How would they describe you?

Probably that I relate every conversation topic to Immanuel Kant or game theory.

How would you describe them?

She was quiet but funny, and had an infectious smile.

Most awkward moment?

At one point, I almost fell asleep while she was talking about how much money she’d saved shopping at Aldi instead of Tesco. She caught me yawning. Not a great look.

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

Her sense of humour reminded me of a night at Klute. Fun, or just corny? Still can’t quite decide. I’m here for it though!

Which Durham college would you place them in and why?

She gave me strong Chad’s vibes. Something about the way she seemed to have her life together.

Did you kiss?

Indeed!

Would you like to see them again?

Sure, I’d be open to that!

Grace on James

What were your first impressions of your date?

Smelt like Lynx Africa (grow up).

What did you talk about?

Many topics were covered: The Apprentice, weekly food shops; our hopes, dreams and aspirations, game theory, politics.

How would they describe you?

A bit quiet (probably was a bit hangry at the start), but easy to talk to.

How would you describe them?

Kind, confident, easy to talk to, nice face

Most awkward moment?

James asked to hold my hand when we left the restaurant – gave me strong year 6 disco vibes.

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

Klute, any night. He said he was a massive Dominic Cummings fan.

Which Durham College would you place them in and why?

Hatfield – massive Tory.

If you could change one thing about the experience, what would it be? 

He kept relating everything to game theory which was a bit annoying, nice that he’s so passionate about his degree though.

I relate every conversation topic to Immanuel Kant or game theory

Did you kiss?

Yes.

Would you like to see them again?

Maybe ;).
