These University Students Gave Very Different Reviews Of Their Blind Date

These University Students Gave Very Different Reviews Of Their Blind Date

Two students from Newcastle University who were set up on a blind date by their uni newspaper have given wildly different reviews of each other - with the female student branding her match 'toxic' and 'anti-feminist'.

Sophia Kypriotis, 19, from London, was not impressed by fellow student Danny Tapper, 19, from Aberdeen, during the student paper get-together, which has now been shared and liked nearly 30,000 times on Twitter.

English Literature student Sophia said her partner dressed fairly well and came across as friendly at the 97 & Social cocktail bar in Newcastle upon Tyne - but she very quickly revealed her true feelings.

"It became clear we weren't suited to one another," said Sophie. "He's a Tory and anti-feminist! He also said all he wanted was to get a job, get married and have kids and told me he was very traditional.

"[I] stayed as calm as I could and I tried to educate him on his rather misogynist views. He called feminism 'toxic' which allowed women to behave as 'slags'. I found this very insulting and I was actually very offended."

Rounding off her view of the awkward date, Sophia said: "We definitely won't be meeting again. I was shocked at his archaic, sexiest views. I think it was pretty awful but he messaged me saying he had a pretty good time which I found confusing!"

Meanwhile, Danny gave a very different account of the pairing, saying she had 'good chat' and was 'a top lass'.

"Just because we disagreed on a few things doesn't take away from the fact that she was a nice person and was easy to talk to," he added.

Twitter users were stunned by the painfully awkward get-together.

"Oh my lord. How are schools still producing young men like this," one person commented.

However, Danny responded to the new-found Twitter attention with a long post defending his behaviour on the date.

"This blind date seems to have completely blown up and I would like to set the record straight on a couple of comments that have been misrepresented," he wrote.

"From the start of the date I asked Sophia what she wrote in her profile because I was interested to see what we had been matched on which she simply replied with - 'no tories'. To this I raised my eyebrows because I found it strange that someone would completely write off another person based on their political beliefs.

"I think she noticed this and asked me if I was a Tory to which I responded that my beliefs were more right of centre than left, but I find it hard to support any party in the current political climate."

Danny went on: "I specifically remember saying to Sophia that I believe in equality of the sexes. We were talking about feminism and I was making the point that I don't believe the feminist movement is the same as it was 100 years ago and nowadays it can have quite a toxic image."

So the next time you're despairing at your bad luck on Tinder, I guess you can at least be thankful you weren't on this blind date from hell.
