So in an odd twist, the girl who went on 30 blind dates now arranges blind dates for other people!
As part of my new job at Time Out, I’ve been running Time Out Dates Nights. The Date Nights aren’t just for singletons – I’ll also be setting up dates for couples. However the guys above were the first blind date to appear in the magazine.
And it was genuinely the most successful date I’ve set up so far!
It’s not the first time I’ve arranged a blind date – when I was working for Guardian Soulmates I ran monthly dates for them. However the most success I’ve ever had at matching up blind dates so far were a couple of shags (yes genuinely!) and one where the girl got so drunk she passed out on the floor of the guy’s bathroom!
Until now! At the time the date went to print, Janey and Charlie had just set up their third date 🙂 Whoop!
You can check out the full details of the date here and I’ll also be doing a review soon of The Schoolhouse – the school-themed restaurant where they went for their date.
If you check out this week’s copy of Time Out, there’s also a brand new blind date in the magazine 🙂
And if you’re a Londoner and you’d like to take part, feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just to warn you, we’ve got lots of straight, female applicants – but if you’re gay or lesbian, or a straight guy living in London, please give me a shout and I’ll see what I can do!
