Oscar on John

What were you hoping for?
Someone to make me laugh, and have a chilled evening with. If I didnt recognise him from Crimewatch, that would be a bonus.

First impressions?
Really cute and very friendly.

What did you talk about?
Barcelona, our rather fabulous waitress and RuPauls Drag Race (we are both superfans).

Any awkward moments?
Probably when I said lol at the top of my lungs.

Good table manners?
Perfect. He put me to shame.

Best thing about John?
So easy to talk to really chatty. Lovely smile, too.

Would you introduce him to your friends?
Yes.

Describe him in three words.
Calm, sweet, caring.

What do you think he made of you?
He said I was energetic. Maybe the third glass of wine was a mistake.

Did you go on somewhere?
No.

And did you kiss?
Maybe.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
Id have grabbed a drink before dinner.

Marks out of 10?

Lets see. Even as mates would be good.

What were you hoping for?
To meet my future baby-daddy.

First impressions?
Lovely smile.

What did you talk about?
A lot about RuPaul, our families and our distrust of people who dont like cake.

Any awkward moments?
Maybe when he said he was 19.

Good table manners?
He didnt toast on our first alcoholic drink.

Best thing about Oscar?
Such positive energy.

Would you introduce him to your friends?
My housemate would love him.

Describe him in three words.
Effervescent, friendly, attractive.

What do you think he made of you?
Perhaps a bit pretentious? I picked up on mutual attraction.

Did you go on somewhere?
Sadly not. I was on my bike and 30 minutes from home.

And did you kiss?
Maybe just a little peck.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
The restaurant wouldnt have been empty by pudding.

Marks out of 10?
8.

Would you meet again?
Certainly.
