You haven’t read a better Guardian Blind Date than this one

With the news pretty much unremittingly grim at the moment, the Guardian’s Blind Date is one of the first things we turn to for a bit of light relief.

And while they more often than not make for a good read, sometimes they are brilliant. And this week is one of those times.

Here’s how it starts.

Even better, the rest manages to live up to that unlikely beginning.

Good table manners?
Excellent, we both spoke with our mouths full.

Best thing about Morgan?
Her energy, intelligence and sense of humour. And she was up for getting pissed.

Would you introduce her to your friends?

Describe her in three words
Fun, interesting, fit.

What do you think she made of you?
Maybe that I talked a mile a minute and was a bit overexcited. Also that I am “cool and hot”, because that’s what she said in a text to her friends, sent when I went to the loo.

Did you go on somewhere?
Yes, to that fateful house party.

And… did you kiss?
We did. A lot.

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
Wear better shoes for a quick getaway.
