Date one A fish supper at Livebait

Jason: as soon as Julie walked in, I knew it was her. She has the most gorgeous smile, and we clicked immediately. It was as if I was having dinner with an old friend. In fact, our personalities mirrored one another so much that it's like she's me, but in a woman's body. At some points we even said the same thing at the same time.

It does worry me a bit that she is so much like me. I'm very impulsive, and I need someone to keep my feet on the ground. But we had a laugh on the date and I am looking forward to spending more time with her.

Julie: The date was very comfortable. The conversation and laughter flowed as if we had known each other for years. We have similar thoughts, and our outlook and philosophy on life is the same.

Jason is an average guy and I didn't swoon as soon as I saw him. I normally go for taller, dark-haired men, but I am trying not to just go on looks now. Maybe I could grow to become attracted to him.

Date two Live music at the Walnut Club

Jason: It was great to have another evening out with Julie. We share the same sense of humour and we're both as daft as each other. We can't stop giggling. I really enjoy her company as she is on exactly the same wavelength as me.

I was a lot more attracted to Julie than I was on our first date. Perhaps it was because she was more relaxed this time and her personality came across a lot more. I saw the real Julie and I liked it. It was a shame that we both had to rush off as we had early starts the next day - I would have liked to have stayed longer.
