She was at The Royal first. I was running a few minutes late as I usually am. Fashionably late as they say. I didn’t really want to be the first anyway.
So I got there and it was the usual small talk, just spoke about ourselves, each other and our interests. It took us a while to decide what food we wanted because we kept getting distracted by talking. Eventually, we got to the food and the drinks and we were both pretty hungry so we shared stuff and we got some wine. We ate a lot.
She has a Canadian accent. I could be wrong, I was a bit confused. She was born here, moved over to Canada, lived there for a bit and then moved back. That was really interesting. She wasn’t really much like the party girl. And she likes country music. That was a highlight. I was like “that’s different”, something that I’m not a big fan of.
I did really like her very bubbly personality. She wasn’t quiet or shy. It was good to have a chat with someone. I find a lot of people these days, especially the younger generation, is very hard to engage in a conversation. So it’s nice to actually have a full flowing conversation throughout the night. I didn’t really give at any stage.
I definitely felt that our interests weren’t really a match. We’re two very different people. Definitely similar in terms of both bubbly and our personalities, but it’s kind of hard to connect on certain things. We can talk about it but it’s going to be hard to connect. That’s something that’s really important to me, whether it’s through music or pop culture or nerdy stuff. There wasn’t any of that there. I don’t think we’re going to be playing Mario Kart together.
We added each other on Facebook and I’d definitely be interested in seeing her again in terms of more of like a friendship level, but probably not more on a dating level.

I pondered a lot of thoughts prior to it like, “Will we get along? What’s going to happen? Is it going to be boring?” and the other obvious one, “Is he going to show up?”.
I felt kind (of like) my stomach started to knot as I was waiting. But as soon as I saw him, he had really nice eyes, we had a hug, the stress literally went away.
I tried so hard not to stare at his eyes. They’re a beautiful greeny brown. But when you look at somebody’s eyes, it’s not always the colour that gets you, it’s just the way that they look. And it just kind of captivates you. I thought his eyes were just absolutely incredible. I don’t know what he thought or what he was thinking I was doing, like if I was being creepy and staring.
I couldn’t shake this feeling that I might have seen him somewhere before. At least run into him somewhere. He was saying to me on the night that he was like, “What if it’s somebody I know?” He’s obviously from Perth, lived here his whole life. I haven’t.
He mentioned that he has a few jobs. He’s studying to be a primary school teacher, he’s a DJ on the weekend and I think it was a support worker or childcare worker? I definitely admired his work ethic.
I did enjoy so much of it and I feel like it could have gone a lot longer if we both didn’t have stuff the next morning. It was just really fun and easy.
He said that he was DJing at The Court soon so said, if I’m interested, I’m more than welcome to go. So if my friend is feeling up to it, we’re going to go. We did add each other to social as well. I think the ball is more in his court. The only reason I say that is because I did send the message to say thanks for a great night.
