Blind Date: Issue 1, Dec 2020
Bachelor of the Month
Felix, 28. Loves surfing, swilling VB’s with his close inner circle of a few hundred mates and, when not busy working as a primary school teacher, he writes poetry that can melt hearts, his mum’s mainly.
Bachelorette of the Month Simran, 21. A recent arrival to the Northern Beaches, all the way from the dizzying heights of Nepal! And like all new arrivals, she’s developed a love of the ocean and takes every chance she can to enjoy our great outdoors when she’s not working in customer service.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done to find love? Felix: I once got an uber from Brisbane to the Goldy in the wee hours of a morning to see a girl I was wildly in love with. Cost a fortune.
Simran: Came here tonight
What native Australian animal best captures your human nature and personality?
Felix: I think I’m a King Parrot. I love their red and green coat. They remind me of my grandma. They’re just a beautiful bird. Not saying I’m beautiful. Or a bird.
Simran: I’m not sure, probably a bird, a Kookaburra, maybe a Tawny Frogmouth.
In a fight to the death, would you rather battle a horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?
Felix: I’d say a horse-sized duck because the death would be a lot quicker, less painful. I’d die for sure. I’m a lover not a fighter.
Simran: Definitely take on the 100 duck-sized horses, of course! They’re only little. I could beat 100 little quacky horses for sure.
What was your first impression of your date?
Felix: A little upset she offered a different answer to the horse-duck fight to the death conundrum. No, first impression, she had a lovely smile, caring eyes.
Simran: He has very beautiful eyes, a beautiful smile, I guess, yeah, no, a beautiful smile, definitely.
What was the conversation like? Any awkward silences?
Felix: Conversation really flowed, very natural.
Simran: I agree, no awkward silences. Lots to talk about.
Were there tell tale signs of heavy flirting?
Felix: I was trying my best to reach across the table for an elbow touch, but I couldn't quite reach. Dammit!
Did sparks fly?
Felix: Flame of the candle’s been sparking strong, so I’d have to say it’s a yes!
Simran: Oohh, yeah, a little bit, yeah!
On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, what star rating would you give this date?
Felix: That’s a great question to answer in front of the person you’ve just had a date with! No, in all honesty, I’d give it a 4.98.
Simran: 4.5 for sure, a great date.
Would you like to see Simran again?
Felix: I’ve got her Instagram now, so we’re basically engaged. No, yep, I’d love to see her again.
Simran: As Felix said, we’re following each other’s Instagram now, so maybe he’ll slide into my DM’s.
There you have it readers, I’d have to say a very successful date and perhaps we’ll see these two become the Northern Beaches’ hottest couple in the very near future. You never know, but rest assured, if it’s steamy, the Tawny Frogmouth’s Cupid Bowen-Arrow will keep you informed.
