PalatiDates: “Surprisingly good kisser, I’ve heard otherwise from elsewhere…”

Eloise on Freddie

Initial vibes?

I already knew he was great fun as we have many mutuals (who have attempted to set us up many times before) – and he proved himself to be so.

What topics arose?

A not so brief explanation as to why his new year’s resolution was to quit Jimmy’s.

How would they describe you?

Gorgeous, I’m sure.

Describe them in three words.

A short king.

Most awkward moment?

Him singing Auld Lang Syne about five decibels higher than everyone else.

Which Durham college would you place them in and why?

Hatfield for startlingly obvious reasons.

Did they meet your expectations? Any surprises?

Surprisingly good kisser, I’ve heard otherwise from elsewhere…

Is a second date on the cards?

Sadly, I think this was just a New Year’s special.

Simply the best.

Cuth’s for the good vibes.

Surprised to find that she was taller than me, though it doesn’t take much.

I’m currently on delivered, so don’t ask me!
