Edinburgh’s Singles of the Week
Love is in the air
With half of Edinburgh returning from their week long ski trip and Spring (hopefully) just round the corner, now might be the perfect time to couple up and start planning a summer city break – or maybe just a romantic walk in the Meadows. Either way, here's a selection of Edinburgh's finest singles.
Dani Rothmann, 1st Year, Fine Art, Newington
If you could take anyone to dinner? Either Ben or Jerry, I don't mind which.
Dream date in Edinburgh? The Boozy Cow.
Last TV series you were obsessed with? How To Get Away With Murder.
Last thing you googled? Marcantonio, I Modi or Japanese spider crabs.
Stroll through the meadows or walk down Princes Street? Probably neither as I am incredibly lazy.
Sum yourself up in three words? Short, drunk, hungover.
Do you believe in conspiracy theories? Elvis isn't dead.
Would you rather be invisible or be able to fly? Invisible, imagine all the free club entry.
If you were an alcholic drink what would you be? Don Pedro Cocktail.
Teviot nachos or Thai Caravan? Nachos, always nachos.
Dani seems like the kind of girl that wants to drink Champagne (or a Don Pedro) and dance on the tables or maybe just sleep if she's feeling lazy, so she could be perfect for you if you're okay with never knowing where the night may take you.
Tom Greenstein, 3rd Year, Maths, Marchmont
If you could take anyone to dinner? Kiera Knightley.
Where are we most likely to find you? Victor Hugo's. Their pastrami sandwiches are banging.
Number one on your bucket list? I would love to go to Cuba. The culture and society is becoming more westernised so it would be nice to see it before it changes too much.
What actor would play you in a movie about your life? Hugh Grant for me as an adult, Nicholas Hoult for me as a child.
What's in your Tinder bio? Well firstly it's Timber (the Windows version) and secondly, Windows is so bad that the app doesn't allow me to write anything in the bio.
Best gift a boyfriend/girlfriend could get you? A Corbyn-led labour government.
Would you rather be, invisible or be able to fly? Invisible. You could totally freak people out, go on stage at a festival and start singing out of tune into the mic with them.
If you were to sum up your love life in a film? Saw 3. Without the bloodshed.
If you were to be an alcoholic drink what would you be? A 30-year-old Talisker malt scotch. Strong, mature and smokey.
Teviot Nachos or Thai caravan? Teviot nachos everyday of the week. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Who doesn't want a strong man? If you're willing to look past the technical Microsoft issues and fancy a trip to Cuba with your very own Hugh Grant then look no further.
Rachel Patterson, 1st Year, Geography, Tollcross
If you could take anyone to Dinner? Jack Whitehall.
Where are we most likely to find you? Hive.
Dream date in Edinburgh? Cocktails, which will probably end in Hive.
What would be the title of your autobiography? Young, dumb and broke.
Last thing you googled? Average height of the Scottish Rugby team.
Do you have a type? Rugby boys (6ft+).
Best gift a boyfriend/girlfriend could get you? Any kind of animal?
What's an interesting fact about yourself? I'm ordained as a minister.
Biggest fashion regret? Jeans with a skirt over the top.
Would you rather be invisible or be able to fly? Invisible, for the gossip.
If you happen to meet the criteria, bear a striking resemblance to a Scottish Rugby player and are happy to spend the night dancing in Hive, then Rachel sounds perfect for you.
Julio C. Othon, 2nd Year, International Relations, Potterrow
Where are we most likely to find you? During the day one of the cafes around central, Thursday nights…Hive.
If you could take anyone to dinner? When it comes to some relationship thing, Emma Watson. If it's just for a chat, Donald Trump.
Dream date in Edinburgh? Ice skating at the Christmas markets.
Number one on your bucket list? For now, I just want a summer internship.
Would you rather be invisible or be able to fly? Invisible! It's much more useful and jetpacks are on the way.
What was the last TV series you were obsessed with? Black Mirror – I was always really positive about the future until I watched it.
Tell me a cheesy joke? If you were a vegetable, you'd be a cutecumber.
What's an interesting fact about yourself? I grew up in Brazil, have been to five continents and I'm still on the look out for that gal who will be able to grant me a European passport.
How would your mates describe you? Loyal, good hearted and hard working.
What song will always get you dancing? "Vou Festejar", a Brazillian samba, is simply great. In English, anything from Florence and the Machine, I love that woman.
So if you reckon you can compete with Florence and might be able to offer Julio his Visa, this might be your guy. Especially if you fancy learning how to Samba like you're at a Brazilian Carnival.
