?>

Eugenia, 27, project manager, meets Thomas, 34, freelance journalist

Eugenia on Thomas

What were you hoping for?
That hes not so beautiful that I clam up and cant talk.

First impressions?
He wouldnt have been my first choice, but maybe hell be cool.

What did you talk about?
Politics. And we touched on books, music and family.

Any awkward moments?
When he offered to share a taxi to the same part of town, and I chose to get the bus.

Good table manners?
So-so. The food was quite messy and he did all right, apart from eating food straight from the table.

Best thing about Thomas?
Hes confident in who he is.

Would you introduce him to your friends?
I dont think theyd get on.

Describe Thomas in three words
Sweary, self-confident, political.

What do you think he made of you?
I dont think he learned much about me: hes an I and me conversationalist.

Did you go on somewhere?
No.

And… did you kiss?
No.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
It was tipping it down, which made me reluctant to leave this might have given the wrong impression.

Marks out of 10?
5. Thomas will be great for someone else.

Would you meet again?
We live in a similar part of town, so our paths may cross.

Thomas on Eugenia

What were you hoping for?
Not to make a pillock of myself.

First impressions?
Attractive, fashionable, tardy.

What did you talk about?
Her job, Manchester, Engrenages (and other intense non-English-language TV).

Any awkward moments?
I kept dropping my pancake into my soup.

Good table manners?
Excellent. We ate with our hands (Indian street food).

Best thing about Eugenia?
Shes driven, caring and cool.

Would you introduce her to your friends?
Theyd be too much, I think!

Describe Eugenia in three words
Focused, interested, engaged.

What do you think she made of you?
Slightly dull.

Did you go on somewhere?
Nope.

And… did you kiss?
Nope.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
That we hadnt met just as she finished work.

Marks out of 10?
6.
