Will, St. Hilda’s, Physics 1st year
Her fashionably late entrance left me worrying I had been stood up on a Zoom date – that would have been a new lockdown low. But on arrival she came across as very friendly and wasn’t too awkward about it being a virtual date.
Did it meet up to expectations?
Yes, far exceeded them actually. Lasted way past the designated 40 mins, which I think for a zoom date is a sizeable win. Was nice to have someone new to bitch about Corona to, also.
When I found out she preferred Park End to Bridge, meaning both of us opposed our college’s preference. There was some really nice bonding over the overrated bridge smoking area.
When I realised I was 3 Stellas down and she was sober, leading me to have to reel in any loose chat.
Date in three words?
Lamenting lost Trinity
At the time of publication a second date has been secured #coronachirpsecomplete
Trudy, Univ, English, 1st year
Once we got over the initial awkwardness of actually being on a virtual date, I thought he seemed like a lovely guy (despite mild Tory vibes).
Did it meet up to your expectations?
For sure, I was expecting it to be painfully awkward but we actually had a nice chat and it was refreshing to talk to someone outside my usual Zoom/FaceTime bubble.
What was the highlight:
Reminiscing about our favourite Oxford club nights and imagining the Trinity that would have been (RIP).
What was the most embarrassing moment:
When he asked me if I wanted to get a Blue (get a Blue or become a Blue?) during my time at uni and I had to inform him that the idea of me playing any sport remotely well was laughable.
Describe the date in 3 words:
Chilled, friendly, different.
Is a second date on the cards:
Never say never.
