Peirce Date: “I suspect she might have an unhealthy fixation with animals”

It’s been a while since the last Peirce Date, so for those who forget, or for those who aren’t familiar, here’s the sitch: We set two Kenyon singles up to go on a blind date* in Peirce where they learn about each other, themselves, and society itself. If you or anyone you know is interested, let us know!

Get this mystery couple’s scoop after the jump!

About the date…

Kip was the first to arrive, immediately admitting that he “wore everything I thought Haley would like: Bean boots, a flannel, jeans. I tried to be very rugged.” Haley arrived a few minutes later, wisely telling me that she thought it was very important to be fashionably late to a first date.

Haley: We talked about Kip’s new squash racket, how he was a nerd in middle school, and how Kip thinks he’s fat. If you don’t listen to him, then it’s great!

Kip: It started off really good, but then she started talking about animal behavior and ecology and I suspect she might have an unhealthy fixation with animals. Take that how you will.

How about the atmosphere…

Haley: It was a little hard to hear, which was actually great. The food was meh.

Kip: The food was the highlight.

How does Peirce stand up to other date locales in Gambier?

Haley: Kip offered to pay, but luckily Peirce is free.

Kip: Much like the forest, there is some interesting fauna.

What about a second date?

Haley: Of course!

Kip: I’m sure we’ll be seeing each other again.

*For this specific date, it was actually Haley’s request to be set up with Kip, and who are we to turn down true love?
