Blind Date: Small business owner Rikkie and executive assistant Kelly found kindred spirits in each other

0 0

Rikkie, 31, says:

I was a little bit nervous for a few seconds there when I thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m being stood up’. But I had a really nice time and she was so lovely.

She’s a mum and I’m a mum and we kind of just spoke about our kids the whole time. We didn’t stop talking the entire time but I didn’t actually really learn anything about her other than she’s got two kids.

My sister was asking me, she’s like, “Well, how old was she?” And I’m like, “I don’t know. What does she do for work”, and I didn’t know.

We’re both very similar in the sense that we aren’t attracted to someone’s sex. We’re attracted to someone as a person.

We spoke a bit about one of Kelly’s kids transitioning and that lead to a conversation about how I accept everyone for who they are. She was very much the same.

We swapped numbers at the end of the night. As to where it would go, I don’t know. But she was definitely, definitely someone I got along with. I’d be keen to see her again whether that was as friends or dating.

Like I said, we spoke about our kids so I don’t even know her very well. So I think that next time, if she was keen, I think I’d definitely focus a little bit more on actually trying to get to know her instead of her children and vice versa.

I probably would have given it a 10/10 had there not been the awkwardness of ‘am I being stood up?’. I thought that she was great. The Cabin was great, and probably the best place I’ve been to in a really long time. The cocktails were great, food was great, company was great.

Verdict: 8/10

Kelly, 24, says:

I ran in practically shaking and flustered because I got the time wrong and I was running pretty late. As soon as I got there, Rikkie admitted that they’d given her a cocktail because they thought I’d stood her up. The staff were like, ‘It’s OK, we’re not judging you too much’.

Obviously, after apologising we got straight into the conversation and it was just so easy going from there. I think even though it was a real muck up on my behalf, it was actually a really comedic way to start the night.

I think my favourite line of the night was Rikkie saying to me, ‘Thank god you’re a woman’. Even though Rikkie doesn’t personally have a preference, we both had bad experiences with dating guys in the past. She’s like, ‘I was just so relieved even though you were late when you came in and you were a woman’. It just made me feel so much more at ease. I haven’t dated a woman since before my marriage.

I think we have a great sense of humour and she’s just so talkative. And not so much that ‘I can’t get a word in’, it was very evenly matched.

We did share some pains about the single motherhood life. We’re both looking at the menu together going, ‘we don’t eat this fancy stuff’.

I’ve never been on a blind date before, I actually think it’s not as terrifying as it sounds.

One of the things that I’ve definitely come away with is that if nothing progresses romantically, I’ve definitely made a friend because we are very similar.

And we just have a great paired sense of humour. We weren’t even asking questions of each other. The conversation just flowed so beautifully, and we were just laughing the whole time and it was great.

We actually ended up staying until they kicked us out because they were closing.

We exchanged numbers at the end of the night. I messaged her to make sure that she got home OK.

Verdict: 9/10
