Perfect: far better than mine.

A sad, naive hipster who doesnt understand the value of money.

Nope.

Willow on Tom

What were you hoping for?
A gorgeous man, and a flirt.

First impressions?
I felt like he was interviewing me for the first 10 minutes.

University, career paths, Jerry Springer. I think I offended him by saying I dont like east London, where he lives.

Any awkward moments?
I told him hes 10 years younger than guys I usually date.

Good table manners?
Hes a teetotal vegan, so I had all the food and wine.

Hes very friendly.

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

Friendly, tall, quirky.

What do you think he made of you?
He gave me his number, so maybe didnt think I was crazy.

Did you go on somewhere?
He suggested going for a drink, but I politely declined.

And… did you kiss?
We hugged slightly awkwardly.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
It would be with someone else.
