My Coffee Lagos Blind Date Episode 5 – Not a Piece of Cake!

Happenings

Meeting someone for the first time can be really awkward, especially if you are meeting a ‘potential bae’ on a blind date. The results may turn out well sometimes and other times not so pleasant. On Episode 5 of My Coffee Lagos Blind Date, our guests, Mariam Odubena, a Businesswoman and Valentine Azike, an IT Engineer were able to get past this awkwardness transforming it into a lovely and fun afternoon over coffee -the most exceptional coffee you can find in these parts. They also signed a ‘Wish Book’ courtesy of My Coffee Lagos, and of course, the Happenings Team was there to capture the moments! The couple shares their experience here…

Did you enjoy your date?

Mariam: Yes I enjoyed my date a lot. I was not really expecting anything; I just wanted to catch some fun. I enjoyed myself. It was not a total waste of time because I enjoyed our conversation.

Valentine: Yes I did. She kept the conversation going and I enjoyed every bit of time spent with her. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give it a 3.

How would you describe your date?

Mariam: He is calm, a good listener and he really seems like an indoor person, not really adventurous. I think he operates in a circle- work and home.

Valentine: She is an entrepreneur; she likes being on her own and not working for other people. And she is a strong person.

Do you like what your date is putting on?

Valentine: Fair ladies on red always match, which means I liked what she was putting on a lot.

Mariam: No I don’t. I mean native on a Saturday? Dressing casual would have been better maybe just a pair of jeans on a T-shirt.

Is there going to be a second date?

Mariam: (laughs heartily) Second date? With him? I doubt it! I don’t know what we will be talking about. Maybe I’m not just feeling him, I don’t know…

Valentine: I hope so, although she looks a bit distracted from me. I like making eye contact with the person I’m talking to, but she was moving away. But if there is a second date, I think a barbecue joint will be cool.

Can you have a relationship with your date?

Mariam: I don’t think so… or maybe I really cannot tell, because he may be more interesting than I thought. I’ve just known him for not more than 3 hours. So it is really hard to tell if I can date him or not.

Valentine: I think I am in between here. I am someone you call a ‘serial dater’; I am always in a relationship. But I have not been in a serious relationship since last year. And I don’t want to lead her on. I don’t know if I want to date her.

What do you think of My Coffee Lagos?

Valentine: This place is really cool. I love the coffee. They got it the way I want it to the last detail. But it got cold early and I don’t like cold things. The cake was filling and nice too.

Mariam: It is a really nice and cool place. The atmosphere here makes you feel at home. It is not really spacious, but they have a way to make you feel relaxed. And the best is that it’s really affordable. I like this place. And the waiter that attended to us, Timileyin, is a real comedian. He attended to us well.

Would you visit My Coffee Lagos again?

Valentine: I will come here and even bring my colleagues and friends. It’s a very good place to hang out, especially when you are working late at night. Just come in and have a night cap.

Mariam: I will definitely come back here. I have a sweet tooth, and they have sweet things here, so we go together. (laughter). They will be seeing me here often.

Any endearing words for your date?

Valentine: I’ll tell her privately (general laughter)

Mariam: No! I don’t have anything to say to him.
