Blind date

Brand manager Anna Isaac, 28, meets company director Patrick Fisher, 30

Anna on Patrick

Before the date, what were you hoping for?
I was expecting average, but secretly hoping for awesome.
First impressions?
Awesome.
What did you talk about?
Baristas and barristers, music, corked wine, London life, siblings, friends with impressive skills, places we’ve travelled, and I did mention that he was lucky to be given a second (and third) chance after he rescheduled.
Any awkward moments?
Ah, yes… As I swirled and sniffed the wine for our waitress, I did get a strange look (and then a laugh), but banter and a wine lesson from our friendly waitress followed and all was well.
Good table manners?
Yes.
Best thing about him?
Easy-going and fun.
Would you introduce him to your friends?
For sure.
Could he meet the parents?
Yes, but Millie the dog would be his harshest critic.
Did you go on somewhere?
Just one more beer for good measure.
And… did you kiss?
Now that would be telling…
If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
Nothing.
Marks out of 10? 9.
Would you meet again?
I think I could manage that.

Patrick on Anna

Before the date, what were you hoping for?
Anything but boring.
First impressions?
Attractive, confident, tall.
What did you talk about?
A lot – we certainly didn’t struggle for conversation.
Any awkward moments?
None that I remember.
Good table manners?
Absolutely. Anna was even kind enough to leave me most of her main course.
Best thing about her?
Appetite for life.
Would you introduce her to your friends?
Definitely, she would get on well with them.
Could she meet the parents?
Mum would love her.
Did you go on somewhere?
A post-dinner drink.
And… did you kiss?
Maybe.
If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
Another chocolate brownie.
Marks out of 10? 9.
Would you meet again?
Maybe we already have…
