Jemma, 37, says:
I was running about 10 minutes late for the date so I messaged Cupid to let her know. She replied saying my date would order a drink for me which I thought was great. When I arrived and noticed a gentleman sitting by himself I thought ‘Oh, I hope that’s him’, then I noticed the two drinks and knew it must be him.
I felt like we were able to connect easily. We both love swimming and something funny we bonded over was our love of Christmas.
I am obsessed with all things Christmas and when I mentioned that he grabbed his phone and showed me how into Christmas he and his family are — which was really cool.
What I also found really nice was the fact we were able to talk about a lot of topics that probably aren’t considered first-date topics. We both felt comfortable to be open and honest with each other, which is rare I think.
The date itself went a lot longer than I expected because we got along so well. We were at the restaurant for a good four hours then ended up going for a walk along the water.
At no point during the date did I feel like I had to pry information out of him — conversation just flowed so well. We both had eye contact with each other the whole time and I think that really helps because we both felt engaged with each other.
As we were finishing up, he dropped me back at the train station and asked if I would like to go to dinner on Saturday night. We exchanged numbers and have been in constant contact since.
I’m a very content person and have been single for quite a while. I don’t really go looking for dates but when I saw Blind Date, I thought it could be a nice opportunity to put myself out there. I’m glad I did, we already have a second date lined up for this weekend.
Luke, 34, says:
I arrived first and was told my date was running a little late so I ordered a cocktail for both of us and relaxed waiting for her to arrive.
There were some nerves but it was OK. I was feeling prepared for the date, I went and had a haircut for it. I saw Jemma walk past and was hoping she was my date because she was gorgeous. When she saw the two drinks on my table she came over with confidence asking if I was here for a blind date.
We got along great. There wasn’t any awkwardness whatsoever, it was amazing — she’s an amazing woman with a great story to tell — she could write a book.
She is a business owner, owns her own house and has spent a lot of time working on herself.
She loves the colour pink and had on a pink dress, she sat on a pink chair and had a pink cocktail, which made me laugh.
Jemma is very active so we had that in common. She’s into swimming and gymnastics and has a set-up in her backyard for her and her kids to exercise on.
She’s been on an unreal weight loss journey which was very inspiring. We were sat cosy inside the restaurant that had a fire going, just chatting nonstop about everything and anything.
We went for a bit of a walk as the date was wrapping up, it was pretty windy and the rain was about to kick in — far from the sunny lunch date I had planned for.
We shared a kiss then I asked if I could drop her back off at the train station. A lot of people will ask you for your social media after a date these days but I’m not about that. I asked for her number. We’ve planned our second date — a dinner date this time. I’m really happy, it was a great match.
