Rejeanne, 31 (pictured) has been single for eight years and has no children 

REJEANNE, 31 

Dating Past?

Practically non-existent. I dated in my early 20s but it never led to anything serious, so I decided I had bigger fish to fry and focused on myself. Then during the pandemic I didn’t want to date someone bored, only to be dumped when the country was up and running again.

Sadly my experience with apps isn’t great. Guys use them a bit like a takeaway service, with a, ‘What shall I have tonight?’ attitude.

VITAL STATISTICS 

Single for eight years, no children.

CURRENT ROLE

Customer service manager.

WOULD LIKE TO MEET

A gentle yet strong man, who goes for what he wants. He won’t be dating for fun, will believe in marriage and will treat his woman like a queen.

Pre-Date Nerves?

None, I was excited. I’ve never been on a blind date before.

First Impressions?

Frank was smiley and had a twinkle in his eye. He was wearing smart trousers, boots and a shirt with a subtle African print. I asked him where he’s from in Africa and when he said Cameroon I began speaking to him in French. I was born in Paris and my mum is from Martinique, so French is my mother tongue — and it’s Frank’s, too.

Usually I like men more muscular, as I like to feel petite in comparison. But Frank looked good and I wasn’t disappointed. He complimented me on my outfit: black leggings, with snakeskin knee-high boots and a white cropped top.

Easy To Talk To?

Frank seemed nervous so I worked hard to make him feel comfortable. Even though it was a midweek lunch date, I suggested we both have a glass of champagne.

REJEANNE’S VERDICT: 8/10 

LIKED? How Frank was caring and attentive.

REGRETS? None.

COFFEE OR CAB? Champagne.

Frank has a son and was respectful about his history with his ex. Family is important to me and I think he liked that I asked if his parents are happy together (they are).

Embarrassing Moments?

Frank kept dropping his cutlery while eating and flecks of curry flew dangerously near to my white top — we laughed it off though.

Did Sparks Fly?

I think so. I could tell Frank was attracted to me because he told me I’m beautiful. He’s a gentleman.

See him again?

Absolutely. He was so caring and attentive. If I’d met him at 21, I’d have thought that boring, but at 31 it’s fantastic. We took a picture together and exchanged numbers.

What do you think he thought of you?

Frank thinks I’m gorgeous. He definitely played ‘eye footsie’ with me. He liked that I’m ambitious and know what I want to do with my life. I’m more than just a pretty face, I have ambition and drive.

Would your family like him?

Yes — he’s a Francophone! But also because he is such a gent. He had two bags with him, yet still asked if he could carry mine to the Tube.

FRANK, 29 

Dating Past?

I lived with the mother of my son for two years, but things didn’t work out. While I want to meet someone new, a young child can be a red flag for some women. I work shifts, too, which makes it complicated to find time to go out.

Pre-Date Nerves?

VITAL STATISTICS

Single for three years with one lovely son, three.

CURRENT ROLE

Catering assistant and neighbourhood ranger in a retirement village, looking after residents and making sure their surroundings are safe.

WOULD LIKE TO MEET

Someone professional, open-minded and mature in her outlook on life.

I was half-nervous, half-excited. I’ve had one blind date in the past — this time I kept my expectations in check.

First Impressions?

Even though I was ten minutes early, Rejeanne was already at our table. I was pleased to be matched with her because not only is she beautiful, she’s bubbly, too.

She was perfectly dressed for the occasion — she’s quite sexy. With hindsight, I might have overdone the compliments.

Easy To Talk To?

Rejeanne decided we should kick off in style with a glass of champagne, which took me pleasantly by surprise. She asked about my ex and my son, and really listened to what I had to say. It sounds like she is good with children, which is a big plus.

Unfortunately, Rejeanne’s main course was awful so she sent it back. She didn’t want anything else and I felt bad eating in front of her, so we shared my curry.

Embarrassing Moments?

FRANK’S VERDICT: 9/10 

LIKED? She is so easy-going.

REGRETS? That we live in different cities.

COFFEE OR CAB? Champagne.

I was nervous and dropped my cutlery — I’m prone to being clumsy when I’m anxious or under pressure. Fortunately, Rejeanne took it well.

Did Sparks Fly?

Yes, we even took pictures together. Rejeanne is pretty and ambitious; she’s got looks, brains and plenty of drive. I felt as though we already knew one another.

See her again?

Definitely. We’re working on it. It won’t be easy because we don’t live in the same city, but we’re determined to make it work. We went through our schedules before we said goodbye.

What do you think she thought of you?

Rejeanne really liked that I speak French. There was a real connection between us.

Would your family like her?

Of course. My family would welcome someone like Rejeanne into our lives. They know I was unhappy with the way things ended previously, so meeting Rejeanne is a positive move towards a new chapter for me.
