LUCY, 32

DATING PAST

I was with my last boyfriend for four years — we even bought a house together. It was a difficult break-up. I think I’m single because my attitude is too casual.

PRE-DATE NERVES? 

I was really nervous, but I’ve taken a year-long break from dating, so now is the time to give it a go. I wore a smart dress, because I wanted to look dressy and feel confident.

VITAL STATISTICS 

Single for three years, no children.

CURRENT ROLE

Pastoral support manager in a secondary school.

WOULD LIKE TO MEET

A tall , dark and handsome man who travels.

LUCY’S VERDICT: 8/10 

LIKED? Having dinner with Christian.

REGRETS? None at all.

COFFEE OR CAB? Coffee.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS? 

I found out Christian’s first name ahead of the date — which took place before the new lockdown rules came into force — and immediately thought, ‘Oh hello, Fifty Shades Of Grey!’ 

He was already at our table when I arrived and I wondered if he could be my Mr Grey — he is very handsome.

I also liked his dress sense; he wore a dark shirt with black trousers. He complimented me on my hair and my outfit.

EASY TO TALK TO? 

Christian was already drinking a whisky, which was a bold move for lunch, so I decided to go for a rosé-based cocktail. 

We talked about dating turn-offs, and I laughed when he said that he didn’t want to meet someone with ‘fake breasts or fake eyelashes’.

We both studied drama and we both have family overseas. Christian’s a free spirit and I think he would draw me out of my comfort zone.

EMBARRASSING MOMENTS? 

I did jokingly ask if he wanted to count all of the stars on my dress. Luckily, he took it in good spirits.

DID SPARKS FLY? 

Yes, definitely — things got quite flirty between us. 

Christian made me laugh. After lunch we went to a pub, and he won points for holding the door open for me and insisting on paying.

WHAT DO YOU THINK HE THOUGHT OF YOU? 

I think he liked me — there was a lot of flirting. I’m sure after lockdown we’ll see each other again. 

We have been messaging and I would be open to a walk or a video call.

WOULD YOUR FAMILY LIKE HIM? 

Everybody would like him.

CHRISTIAN, 30

DATING PAST? 

I’m a bit of a free spirit. My longest relationship only lasted five months. 

I’m also not a fan of this generation of women who enjoy getting drunk and are slaves to artificial beauty. 

They should have more faith in how they naturally look.

PRE-DATE NERVES? 

Going on a blind date felt a little bit weird, and I went into it with healthy scepticism. 

I dressed up as I knew it could be my last date of 2020. Lucy dressed up, too, which I took as a good sign.

VITAL STATISTICS 

Single for 18 months, no children.

CURRENT ROLE

Actor.

WOULD LIKE TO MEET

A woman with her own opinion. I wouldn’t want to date anyone who looks artificial.

CHRISTIAN’S VERDICT: 8/10 

LIKED? Lucy is a lovely woman.

REGRETS? None.

COFFEE OR CAB? Coffee.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS? 

I arrived first, obviously. I like to be early. 

I ordered a whisky and then I noticed a pretty woman wearing a dress covered in stars walking towards me.

To be honest, at first I assumed we weren’t going to have a similar vibe, but I later realised I was mistaken.

EASY TO TALK TO? 

Lucy quizzed me over what I had to say about the ‘fake British look’ — I’m Maltese and have never dated a British woman before.

She told me she doesn’t usually bother with make-up and hasn’t had any tweakments, but she didn’t need to tell me that, as I could see she’s a naturally beautiful woman.

She also asked why I’ve never been to South London, where she lives — I think it was an invitation to see her again.

EMBARRASSING MOMENTS? 

No, none. Thankfully, neither of us asked any offensive questions. I am known for my strident views. 

Sometimes they can be a bit different from other people’s, and that can be awkward.

DID SPARKS FLY? 

Yes, I think so. It was unexpectedly enjoyable and we went for another drink so we could continue to talk. 

Lucy is attractive, smart and funny. She ticks a lot of boxes.

WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE THOUGHT OF YOU? 

We’ve spoken more since our date and Lucy has mentioned meeting again. 

I think she likes me, and the feeling is mutual.

WOULD YOUR FAMILY LIKE HER? 

If I like someone, I don’t need anyone else’s confirmation.
