FM Rates Dates: What Happens When You Make A Pass, And Fail



From cradle robbing in Kirkland to six-pointed-star-crossed lovers in Quincy, students rate their blind dates.



SERENDIPITY—OR MAYBE CRADLE ROBBING—IN KIRKLAND

THE COUGAR AND HER CATCH

Geraldine M. Jowett ’14

House: Mather

Concentration: Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology

Tell us about yourself: There’s nothing appropriate for print.

Patrick P. Doyle ’15

House: Holworthy

Concentration: Pending

Spends his afternoons: Playing spikeball in the Yard, comping the Crimson Key Society and the Harvard Financial Analysts Club, growing into a man

THE DATE WAS MATCHED

Geraldine: He looked vaguely familiar when I met him. So, we met in Kirkland dhall and we sat down, and it became very clearly obvious that the reason that his name sounded familiar was because he was my top Datamatch.

Patrick: I was just excited about the adventure.

Geraldine: And I had been stalking him on Facebook that day because I was writing recommendations. I’m in Crimson Key, and he’s in the second round [of the comp], and I was stalking literally every single person. So I had been looking at his Facebook this afternoon. He was very excited.

Patrick: She also knows some of my friends. It seemed like another coincidence among the many.
