Guardian readers dating

Meet Rory, a 31-year-old nutrition student, and Elizabeth, 26, a music PR. I LOVE how they watermark their photography though – do you think there actually *is* a chair with this written on the back? Readers may not be aware of the shocking scandal behind each Guardian Blind Date column – the newspaper’s staff have been so desperate to fill their pages they’ve been sending TODDLERS and adolescents on the blind dates, but none of them have made it to print. CREATIVE, like a lie told by a child in serious trouble. UNPRETENTIOUS, like going to the shop in your slippers, totally unironically. Have another go, abandon the nerves, sod the shyness, meet somewhere with spit, blood and Carlsberg on the carpet.

We have helped thousands of people meet women and men alike, and launched thousands of happy and lasting relationships. Join Telegraph Dating now and let us help you find that special someone.

I must’ve looked out of my window a million times and across the rooftops and, so used to seeing it, merely stared right through its summit for the past two years. I don’t think anyone of us will forget what happened there, and the scale and the sight of it, and despite what “keep calm and carry on” enthusiasts might tell you, remembering it for ever – and why it happened, and who let it happen – is exactly the right decision. Meet property developer Katherine, 58 and 55-year-old neurological physiotherapist Ella. I’m sure Ella is very easygoing, and that sounds delightful, but I always laugh myself hoarse when other people describe themselves as easygoing because, you know, 8 times out of 10, they are nothing of the sort. What must it be like not to have to queue for a token for your free school lunch, separate from everyone else? I assumed that having a dining room, nice vowels and a car was the answer to everything. Always a sign things are going well if the sound of the riotous, joyous laughter of others is getting on your nerves. She’s giving them the due attention you would if you also had a risotto on the stove that stuck to the bottom of the pan last time so you really need to keep watching. EASYGOING like someone who couldn’t give two shits for a very good reason – they’re not interested. Katherine’s 8 feels awarded out of politeness and in appreciation of getting out of the house rather than any actual appreciation of the joyless awkward fiesta she just sat through.

Click on the pic to see what happened and then we can get forensic. You do hope dates will be funny above all else, don’t you? They almost tell you it like it’s a threat, and usually followed by an example of why they are anything but. Anyway, I never did manage to get posh and now I’m quite glad because, well, yes, you have the money but very little else that anyone wants, it seems. I am quite sensitive to loud noises, especially in places with terrible acoustics because they’re decorated like a post-apocalyptic branch of Habitat, but laughter? Was it distracting you from the fun-fest happening at your own table? Katherine’s optimism in the face of what seems to be slightly disdainful indifference is admirable. PLEASANT like a Wednesday in April with only light rain in the morning then sunny internals for the rest of the day and a manageable pollen count. This is the voice of someone who daren’t say anything in case they actually say the TRUTH. Ella’s 6 is, as all regular Impeccable readers know, a face-saving zero.

Ian, I liked the format of the site and it was easy to complete the questionnaire. Our relationship developed very quickly even though the distance is well beyond my preference.
