Blind Date: Safety Coordinator Claire and Field Assistant Michael Defend the Nation

Claire, 28, said:

One night, I saw a farmer wanting a wife, and I thought, “It’s been a long time, so I want to put myself out there.” I hadn’t dated in quite a few months, so I applied for a blind date, but I was very specific about what I was looking for and, to be honest, I didn’t expect to get a response!

I was matched with Michael, who is a really nice guy and easy to talk to. He has a strong personality and is a very kind person. Conversation flowed all the time. I honestly have nothing bad to say about him!

I wasn’t nervous before the date. I enjoy meeting and getting to know new people, so I think I’ve come to a point where I’m not nervous.

Michael was a bit of a country boy and I think he was very happy with the fact that I came from a farm. He had a lot in common, such as his outlook on life and what he wanted to do. Michael is very ambitious and also a pretty sporty person. We both love the outdoors, going camping and fishing, so we talked about that a lot.

Michael is a little younger than me, so I think he’s still sorting out what he wants to do with his life/career.

After dinner we started straight away – we went to a bar in Northbridge and continued chatting. I really enjoyed the experience and it was fun and unique to meet people who knew nothing and to start from scratch and get to know them.

Michael asked if he could give me my phone number when he got off work and I said yes. He said he would do this again. I think we both saw this as a really good conversation with a stranger that probably wouldn’t go anywhere.

I was pretty excited before the date, but it probably turned into tense energy. It’s been under construction for a long time, so it’s been on my mind for months. That said, I consider myself a pretty friendly person and I love to talk, so I knew it would be fine.

Claire and I talked too much and had very little food. This is a good indicator I guess, we had a lot in common – she’s a country girl – so you definitely hit her a hammer in the head with it.

We talked about our adventures so far. Claire has traveled all over the world and she has also been on TV before, she is really funny with a lot of her life experience. We talked about what our “perfect” person is and whether there is a perfect person for everyone. There may be perfect people, but more realistically, you compromise, grow together, and fall in love with someone over time.

One time this drunk man came to our table and started chatting with us. Claire made up the story that we were on his fifth anniversary date and his daughter was laughing along. After a while he thanked us for our chat and said we were great people – very funny.

The date time flew by. After dinner we went to the Northbridge Brewing Co where we continued our conversation. I felt like there was something there when it came to compatibility. But when you meet someone for the first time in your life, it’s hard to know for sure because you don’t know much about them.

I would love to go on another date but I think we are in different stages of life. Goal. This is a great goal, but I haven’t started that way yet.
