Aaron, 27, says:
I’d been single for about 4 months or so and was getting a bit bored with the entire relationship factor. So I assumed I’d give it a break after which actually the following day I obtained a message from my good friend saying “hey do you wish to do that Bind Date factor?” And I used to be like “positive, why not?” It simply looks like one thing fairly loopy to do.
As I went up the escalator to Palace Cinemas there was 80s disco music taking part in and considered one of my drag queen pals was up there and he or she was like “what are you doing?” And I mentioned “happening my blind date”. And he or she was like “I’m gonna suss him out”. So she kind of gave me the heads up beforehand. After which I went over.
I’d say Jarrod is somebody who I wouldn’t historically go for. He was very nice, actually pleasant. However yeah, simply not the particular person for me.
As a result of it was an occasion reasonably than a sit-down meal it was form of exhausting to speak at instances as a result of there was rather a lot happening — it was fairly loud. We primarily talked about work, Jarrod works in advertising and marketing. I presently work in advertising and marketing as effectively. So we have been speaking about our experiences within the company world. We talked rather a lot about travelling. We have been speaking about that factor of if you’re younger and you permit Perth and go dwell in Melbourne and life may be very glamorous and then you definitely get again to Perth and also you realise what an excellent metropolis it’s to dwell in.
He did ask me if I needed to seize a drink, however it was form of a college evening so I needed to decline and head dwelling. We added one another on Instagram. I did suggest some Fringe reveals to him so we’d see one another out someplace.
Jarrod, 35, says:
I made the transfer again from Melbourne a few 12 months in the past and I’ve been relationship rather a lot since then. I attempted a number of various things. I noticed this one within the paper and I assumed I’d give it a shot as effectively. It’s actually simply to see what’s on the market and whether or not now we have a connection, that kind of factor.
Aaron’s a very nice man. He was truly introduced over by one of many drag queens at Palace Cinemas. I’m fairly shy after I first meet somebody, so he was very nice, asking numerous questions so it was a very nice begin.
We talked about work, we truly work in the identical space which is sort of fascinating, he works in advertising and marketing too, so we had rather a lot in widespread.
We went to the identical uni — we each went to Murdoch — we talked rather a lot about that. We additionally spoke about how our weeks are going and on the relationship expertise too, which was actually enjoyable.
I don’t assume I’ve ever seen him out and I don’t assume he’s met me out earlier than, and we don’t appear to combine in the identical circles both which I discovered actually shocking as a result of after I’ve been on dates earlier than, we’ve all the time recognized somebody in widespread.
I did ask if he needed to kick on after as a result of we had about 45 minutes earlier than the film to speak , I mentioned “ought to we go have a drink?”, however he needed to work the following day.
We exchanged Instagram, and we had a number of messages backwards and forwards the opposite evening. I’d have an interest. I’m undecided how he feels, however I’d be fascinated about catching up once more if he’s eager as a result of I really feel like we solely had a short while collectively earlier than the film so it might be good to speak a bit extra.
I believe it might be much less awkward now that I do know him slightly bit.
