What do you find most attractive in a date? Open-mindedness
What do you find least attractive? Too many questions which indicate someone is looking to ascertain if you are “the one” within the first 15 minutes of meeting you. It kills it.
Best ever date? – a Thames river cruise, followed by a meal on the South Bank, followed by a stroll and a sleep in St James’ Park, followed by a night and a morning together. I was only vaguely attracted to the girl in question but the way that date was done was pretty special, even if I say so myself. I see the potential for artistry in every date and in everything in life – every man’s work is a portrait of himself.
Worst ever date? – after a number of telephone conversations, the subject arrived and was completely different to her pictures, to the extent that it was almost unacceptable. Out of sheer politeness I was still a gentleman and went through the motions. I must admit – I did also run off once, to prevent what might have been a bad date. Guilty. I’ve had some dates which have started horrendously, and then ended incredibly. I’ve also had some dates where on paper, it looked like perfection but ended up in complete catastrophe. It’s always on a knife-edge and that’s what makes it. What goes around comes around.
