IN&OUTTONIGHT 18 Tuesday, 15 September 2009 London Lite had a good giggle together and agreed wed like to see each other again. The more I got to know Sarah the more I started to like her. On the way home, I caught a glimpse of her reflection in the train window opposite and thought, That girl looks cute and then realised it was actually Sarah! Id like to see what hap- pens with this one. Id HAd a tiring day so when I was getting on the train I thought Am I doing the right thing?. But as soon as I met Rob I was glad I went and it was a really good night. I always worry when Im thrown together with people I dont know, but I found with Rob it wasnt hard to find things to talk about. Id seen Robs profile and thought he was cute and the right age for me, plus we have similar jobs which meant hed have an understanding of shift work. Ive only ever cooked Indian food once before and tried to impress the chef Abdul with my knowledge of spices, but Rob said I was showing off! It was fun cooking and mucking around together. I think we were a little flirty in a nice way that wasnt forced. Rob and I were quite tactile with each other. during the lesson I thought Id really like to sit down and talk to this guy. The food at dinner was great. I was interested in everything Rob had to say and Ive LOVE Single FILEWhat happened when we sent two Lite readers for a date learning how to cook Indian food? ROB DAVIE, a 38-year-old police officer from Herne Hill, chose to date Sarah Howlett, a 32-year-old paramedic from Crystal Palace, as he liked her smile. We sent them to an Indian cooking lesson, but was their date full of spice? F r O m t h e moment we met, Sarah and I chatted away. We initially just started talking about why she responded to the advert in the paper. She said it was a dare from her friends after a few drinks. The main reason I chose Sarah was because of her smile and blue eyes -- Ive a soft spot for beautiful eyes. We spoke passionately about our careers. That was the initial ice-breaker that made me think wed get on. Shes a paramedic and Im a policeman, so we have similar jobs. I like a woman who has ambition and doesnt just stick to a mun- dane job because its all they know. Its a plus point that Sarah has get up and go. For the date, we were given an Indian cooking lesson at Cinnamon Kitchen before sitting down for a meal to see how the professionals do it. I thought I knew quite a bit about cooking, but Sarah showed me up. We had to cook a fish dish with a hot sauce and rice. We were in a working kitchen which gave it a great atmosphere. There was a lot of messing about but we did also manage to do some cooking. There was a little flirtation going on -- especially when we fed each other food. I think Sarah is a bit of a tomboy. She wore heels on the date and said she hadnt done for ages. I liked the fact that she can dress down, but it made me feel special that she had made such an effort for our date -- it looked like she wanted to be there which made me more comfortable. Im 38 and shes 32 so we do have a bit of history, especially with careers and what weve done to get to where we are. Ive a child and shes been in a serious relationship, but recently I think our work has consumed us. We both had an early start the next day because of shift work so we stayed until 10.30pm. We were quite well behaved. Sarah catches a train that goes through where I live so we caught the same train home together and swapped numbers before I got off.
