First impressions?

What did you talk about?
Peak Meg Ryan, disgusting foods, sleep hygiene, emotionally devastating books and Trump.

Any awkward moments?
When I asked if he needed the loo, which was weird on my part.

Good table manners?
Very good: he handled his cumbersome mackerel masterfully.

Best thing about Kai?
Excellent taste in film and music (specifically, 1990s romcoms and Ronan Keating), and hes really smart but humble with it.

Would you introduce him to your friends?
Definitely hes great.

Describe him in three words
Kind, interesting, funny.

What do you think he made of you?
That I talked quite a lot, and was maybe a bit sweary.

Did you go on somewhere?
To a sticky-tabled pub around the corner, where we stayed until we got kicked out.

No way! My dads reading this.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
The pub wouldnt have kicked us out.

Marks out of 10?
8.

Would you meet again?
Totally I owe him a pint. But perhaps just as mates.

Good table manners?
I was preoccupied with trying not to choke to death, so didnt pay much attention.

Her winning smile.
