RAZZ Blind Dates: “Why is Exeter so small?”

RAZZ decided to celebrate SHAG Week (Sexual Health Awareness and Guidance Week) by arranging some blind dates in the student community! Keep up with the series here.

Jacob is a depop model who was looking for “someone to take my breath away”. Beatrice boasted that she’s a rugby lad predicted a 2:1 hoping to find someone with a shared interest in the length of a queue outside TP. We decided to put them on a date together.

Let’s find out firstly what Jacob had to say about the date…


What were you expecting from the date?

Just to try out a blind date, meet someone new.
Any awkward moments?
Can’t think of anything particularly awkward.
Best thing about your date?
She was relatable and funny.
Would you introduce them to your housemates?
No, out of the fear of what my housemates might do.
Describe your date in three words.
Funny, relatable, easy to talk to.
What do you think your date thought of you?
We both agreed that it went quite well and it was interesting.
How long did the date last? Were you happy with that?
About 2 hours, yes.
What degree classification would you give your date? (1st/2:1/2:2/3/FAIL)
2:1.
Would you meet again?
Yes.

Jacob seems like a man of few words but it seems like he had a good time. What did Beatrice think though?

What were you expecting from the date?
To be honest was bricking it, had relatively low expectations but hopefully to semi get over the fear of dates.
Any awkward moments?
I don’t really think so but he was quite good at making conversation to make it not awkward.
Best thing about your date?
Very easy to talk to.
What did you talk about?
Quite varied topics to be honest everything from family to Wednesday TP.
Would you introduce them to your housemates?
Coincidently one of them randomly met them at intramural netball the next day – why is Exeter so small?
Describe your date in three words.
Friendly, chatty, funny.
What do you think your date thought of you?
No idea but hopefully just pretty chill overall.
How long did the date last? Were you happy with that?
I think around two and half hours and yes it was a chill amount I think.
What degree classification would you give your date? (1st/2:1/2:2/3/FAIL)
2:1
Would you meet again?
Probably not romantically as he was a bit older, we’re at different life stages but he was really nice.

We’re glad Beatrice got her TP chat in and that they had a nice time but seems like not a happily ever after this time. Best of luck to Jacob and Beatrice in the future!
