PalatiDates: “I was surprised to hear that she keeps chinchillas in her house – I’m sure her landlord would be too…”

Lily on Sam

Initial vibes?

He was late but sincerely apologetic, and had a remarkable resemblance of Sam Fender.

What did you talk about?

Music. We’re both into jazz, so a Sunday night at Fab’s would be a great second date.

How would they describe you?

Probably a terrible flirt.

Describe them in three words

Intellectual, kind, eccentric.

Most awkward moment

Shattering my wine glass all over my dinner…

Which Durham college would you place them in and why?

Cuth’s – humble, free-spirited.

Did they meet your expectations? Any surprises?

He exceeded them! I felt like I’d known him much longer than a few hours.

Is a second date on the cards?

Hopefully – when he finally replies to my message…
