Olivia: We went to Johnny’s in Newton for breakfast.

Heights: How did you prepare for the date?

Olivia: My roommates gave me a knowing look as I left the room. Nothing big preparation-wise.

Heights: What was it like when you first encountered your date?

Olivia: It was nice. It was cool. We just said hi and ordered an Uber and went over and started chatting.

Heights: What did you talk about?

Olivia: Pretty much everything…what we do around campus, things we’re involved in, our interests. We talked about shows we watched on TV. We talked about what his plans were for abroad and stuff like that.

Heights: Were there any awkward moments?

Olivia: We both were there pretty much to have a good time, so I guess the most awkward moment maybe would’ve been figuring out the whole check thing, but that was actually pretty easy to figure out. It was just joking about it, so it wasn’t really awkward.

Heights: What does the future hold for the two of you?

Olivia: I don’t know. I think he’s really cool, and I’d love to hang out with him again. Obviously we have each other’s numbers, so hopefully we can hang out.

Major: Finance

Favorite Movie: Inside Out

Heights: How did you prepare for the date?

Alexander: We just started texting and initially I was thinking sushi, and then she said, “well I don’t really want to have raw fish in the morning” and I forgot that was a thing. Apparently breakfast is a really big thing for her, like she hates when people skip breakfast, so I guess that was a good choice.

Heights: What was it like when you first encountered your date?

Alexander: I think it was fine for both of us, because I don’t think we were coming in expecting that much out of it. I think we just thought, “Hey, let’s just meet in person.” It was pretty easy to start getting into conversation.

Heights: What did you talk about?

Alexander: We found out that we’re in the same class in a 200-person lecture hall, so we were talking about school and I remember talking about the kind of things we wanted to do with our stuff, so me going into business and her wanting to be a teacher. We’re both dog people too, so we kind of exchanged pictures of our dogs.

Heights: Were there any awkward moments?

Alexander: I wouldn’t say awkward, but I was presuming that I was gonna pay for the meal, and she kind of came out before the check even came out and said, “it’s okay, you got transportation so I’ll get this.” I don’t think it was an awkward thing.

Heights: What does the future hold for the two of you?

Alexander: I think we’ll be friends. Everyone asked me that when I got back, “oh are you gonna go on a second date” and all that kind of stuff. I would [go on a second date], but I think we just hit it off as friends and will talk in class now. I think we’ll remain friends. I don’t think we’re gonna date, but I definitely think there’s a friendship there.
