So how did they all compare?  Did my date with The Fake Pimpernel surpass the one with The Original Pimpernel?  Did the Oxford Blue score more highly than my date with a Cambridge grad?  Which date topped the table?  And which date was the worst of the thirty?

Here’s my thirty dates, ordered according to their score out of ten ….

2 Comments on Thirty by Thirty – A Round-Up

  1. I’d really like to know if you intend to see one of them anymore? Does the fact you’ve dated so many make it impossible to select one that you plan on trying to date exclusively?

  2. Well I only went on one date with each of them, so I don’t know that I could just choose one off the one date alone (though I guess I kind of did earlier in the Challenge with The Enigma, and that didn’t exactly go to plan!). There are definitely one or two who I would like to see a second time, to see if there’s actually any chemistry. Dating so many wasn’t the problem – as I definitely know I didn’t fancy the majority (even though hopefully a number will stay friends) – however it’s interesting trying to compare the guys, because they are all so different and what we did on the dates was so different.

    There’s also a pretty big part of me that is now really enjoying being single and all the fun things you can do as a singleton, so I’m not in any huge rush to settle down just yet 🙂
