Blind Date: Beth and Callum compared their fitness prowess

Beth, 23, says:

It was a little weird at first. I was standing in line while waiting to be seated and I’m pretty sure my blind date was standing behind me because he was the only person who was so lonely.

He was like “I guess we’re together then”, because he heard me ask about the reservation.

We ordered a few drinks and had dinner.

I could tell he was a little nervous at first. He even said “I’m a little nervous”. But it’s good. Everyone is getting nervous. I think I was fine, but again my job is to talk to random people all the time.

I started the conversation but once we got started Callum seemed more at ease. The conversation was good. It went pretty well.

We talked about general things like work and play. He does a lot of sports. He said he played cricket and soccer.

I’m not really into sports, but I guess we have this common fitness interest. He also goes to the gym and I’m there all the time for work.

He said he is quite sociable on the weekends and enjoys hanging out with friends and going to bars and I like to do that too.

We went for a drink after the date. It was quite late so we only had one drink. And it was a Sunday so things tend to close early.

We ended up walking to Northbridge from town. We chatted a little longer. We exchanged social gatherings at the end of the night.

He’s not my usual type. He’s got a size for sure and he’s a really nice guy. He dressed well too. But I tend to like the muscular and rugged look.

We have chatted several times since but I don’t know if it will go any further. I’m not saying no because you never know. He texted me and said “maybe we can catch up someday”.

Verdict: 8/10

Callum, 26, says:

I was pretty nervous before that. I had to have a pep talk from the boys.

It was really scary at first. Guess it’s just the stranger of not knowing who you meet.

We were both in line, waiting to find the table.

I didn’t know if it was her I was coming to see. But she was the only person standing in line on her own, so I kind of had a little idea.

We have a few things in common. We’re both kind of competitive.

We both go to the gym. She is a physiotherapist and I go to the gym four to five times a week. And that started the conversation.

I asked Beth why she was interested in doing Blind Date. So it’s good to know that she was genuinely interested and that she was putting herself forward. I guess that’s why I was there too.

My love of cricket has come. I mentioned that I play cricket, soccer, I also play soccer a bit.

Cricket is unfortunately not a big winner with girls. I don’t think a lot of people like cricket. It’s pretty boring.

I prefer to say that I play soccer and people might be interested in it, but she mentioned that she is not a big fan of sports. So that kind of movie fell apart pretty quickly.

We were talking about bad dating stories and mini golf came along. I said “how are you at mini golf” and she said she is very competitive when it comes to mini golf and bowling.

That got the ball rolling to talk about a second date if we were to have one.

She made me feel really comfortable. I didn’t feel like I was just talking to a stranger.

Beth texted me after the date and said she had a great time and wanted to see if we could get together another time to meet and I said “yes good sure”.

Verdict: 9/10
