18 Tuesday, 30 June 2009 London Lite websites and I have a website that I built myself, so we have similarities there. We didnt talk about work too much, though. Its just work after all. On holiday we both like exploring new places and cultures. Hes just got back from Turkey and Ive recently returned from four years in Australia. The food at The Refinery was good but we were chatting so much over dinner that I only ate half of it. I think we got on better than most people I meet. Curtis asked for my number when we said goodbye, so were going to see each other again but we havent decided where. I didnt have any expectations going into the date, but he was a really nice guy and seemed cool and chilled out. There was a bit of a spark between us so well see what happens. I DIDNT recognise Helen straight away as she was taller than expected. But Im 6ft 6in, so it was a nice change to meet a taller girl. I wanted to date her as she looked nice, spontaneous and fun. We took to the blind date situation quite well, even though it can be awkward. We both seemed quite relaxed and conversation flowed well from the start. The boules LOVE HESAYS: Single FILEWhat happened when we sent two Lite readers for a date playing a game of ptanque? HELEN LASCELLES, a 29-year- old marketing analyst from Bermondsey, chose to date Curtis White, a 30-year-old graphic designer and DJ from Kingston, as she was attracted by his cool job. We sent them to play French boules, to see if they would be bouled over by each other. CURTIS got there before me as I was fashionably late. It was fairly chilled from the start and we gave each other a kiss on the cheek when we first met. I chose him as he was the only one with his top off in the picture so you knew what you were getting! But s e r i o u s l y, o t h e r t h a n b e i n g good-looking, he was well-travelled and had a creative job. The Refinery was a great venue. It had a large terrace with lots of deckchairs and a French boules (ptanque) area. When playing boules, we werent keeping score -- we were just trying to hit the central cork with our balls and kept knocking our balls off the others. We had a really good laugh and were making silly jokes during the game. We became a little competitive, but Curtis is sporty anyway so is probably naturally like that. We found we had quite a lot in common. We both cycle to work, both get bored just sitting on the beach on a holiday and neither of us watches much TV. We also both play on five-a-side football teams. I think he was quite surprised I played. Its very important to me that a guy is sporty, chatty and outgoing, so it was great that Curtis was like that. At work, he is involved in designing customer mail-outs and I sort out target customer lists, so we both knew what the other was talking about. He also creates SHESAYS: Fancy going on a date with this hottie, courtesy of Lite?

Thousands are looking for you at Seductive: the Mexican restaurant Taqueria CHEAP DATE I HAD to find a cheap and not too embarrassing place to take a girl I pulled at a posh cocktail bar. So with my limited budget I chose Taqueria (139- 143 Westbourne Grove, W11, 020 7229 4734). I knew she was a party girl and being a Mexican place it meant there would be lots of tequila. I ordered two Margarita Especials at 12.50 each as aperitifs, which produced a broad smile from my date. As a starter, I had the dynamite-tasting sopa de tortilla at 3.80 and she went for the ceviche (5.50). I ordered some Mexican beer (Negro Modello 3.85) to keep the party going and a main course of a selection of fantastic tacos completed the seductive Mexican experience. After a cheaper Margarita Classic (6.85) my date was peaking with pleasure. Ay, caramba!
