IN&OUTTONIGHT 20 Tuesday, 13 October 2009 London Lite Didmy LOVE Andrew Vertes, 27, a surveyor from new southgate, chose to date Louisa Metherell, a 25-year-old market researcher from Clapham north, as he thought she was attractive. we sent them to enjoy Oktoberfest to see if they found more to celebrate than just beer. T h e r e s s o much potential for awkwardness when you meet someone completely blind. OK, I had seen a pho- tograph, and she looked pretty, and she did say things that made her sound nice, but still, its hard to judge someone on that alone. A picture can be very misleading! But my date with Louisa went really well, with no problems at all. We had plenty to say to each other and after the initial nor- mal questions as you try to get to know each other, it was all pretty relaxed. We had some things in common, but I wouldnt say you have to have loads in common for a relationship to work. It turned out that we both speak French and spanish, so that was quite a coincidence. I lived in France when I was younger and Louisa is fluent in French, which gave us a lot to discuss. I thought beforehand that the Bavarian Beerhouse might not have been the kind of place Id enjoy as I wouldnt normally go somewhere like that. But I did really enjoy myself and the food was especially great. We asked the waiting staff to rec- ommend dishes for us to try. I have to admit I was a bit jealous of Louisas meal. she definitely made the right choice. The service was really good and friendly. There was a live band, too, and they played us a song. We stayed reasonably late. Louisa was quite controlled in her drinking but I kind of went for it. Theres definitely a possibility that well see each other again. We exchanged numbers towards the end of the night. she lives in south London and I live in north London, which could make seeing Fancy going on a date with this hottie, courtesy of Lite?

Thousands are looking for you at Deal: Gilgamesh has 50 per cent off set menus CHEAP DATE I DECIDED to treat the new boy to dinner and I wanted to impress him, so I was chuffed to find Gilgamesh (the stables, Camden Market, Chalk Farm road, nw1, 020 7482 5757, gilgameshbar.com) has a special offer on this month. Its 50 per cent off for the set menus -- which makes it only 20 a head for the most amazing Pan Asian meal. When we arrived the boy, who hadnt been before, was wowed by the place -- its all opulent brocade chairs, brass inlaid tables and carved Buddhas. I ordered a bottle of Sicilian sangiovese (18) to start with. Theres a vegetarian menu, but we went for the other one, with the most delicious duck spring rolls, salmon sashimi and prawn dumplings, followed by sticky grilled beef with chive mash and a fish curry with rice and garlicky greens. We barely had room for the chocolate and lemongrass brle to finish, but I allowed him to feed me a few mouthfuls before I paid the bill. He was stunned that Id been so generous. Not bad for 58! ANNE, HArrOw Ourcouplecelebrateda frothyOktoberfestand learnedtopull...apint HESAYS: each other on a regular basis a bit tricky. As for the type of girl I would normally go for, I generally like girls who have an opinion and arent afraid to say what they think. I really like girls who talk about things on more than a purely superficial level. Louisa appealed because she had a lot to say and wasnt afraid to have fun, which I thought was great. Is she my perfect woman? Its hard to say. In truth, I suspect maybe not, but thats not to say I didnt have really good fun. Meeting someone you dont know at all like that could be disastrous, but we had a really good night. Andrews profile caught my eye because he has a nice smile and what he said seemed relatively normal -- there are a lot of odd guys out there. I rocked up 15 minutes early for the date, which wasnt unusual, as Im always early. straight away they brought me a stein of beer that was so heavy I could barely pick it up. when Andrew arrived we sat down and started talking -- and didnt stop for the rest of the evening. we had a brilliant night. The place was full of people having fun, I think it would have been impossible not to have a great Single FILEWhat happened when we sent two Lite readers for a date at a Bavarian beer hall? 2 index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html
