Impeccable Table Manners

Harry and Rosey


What happened on the date


An exciting deviation from the norm in an attempt to add content to the worst question of the entire column. Effort appreciated, but the use of “textbook” makes me feel a bit ill.

And sharing food is a prelude to sex and they didn’t actually do that – so no. Unless your hands are planning to wander far and wide, keep them off your date’s plate.

Especially with cheese, the least sexy food since polenta.

  1. I am not feeling well, so instead of working, I am reading your old Blind Date reviews. This couple seemed like they hit it off! I wish we could find out if it all worked out, and 7 years later they are happily weathering the pandemic with their 2.5 kids and a dog… also, cheese is delicious, and if someone was feeding me camembert, it wouldn’t be long before sexy time… but, I have never had polenta, so, can’t compare!
