Daily Dates Singles Reflection: Sara Gonzalez and Caleb Weatherby



Eight singles were paired together to talk about some of their most intimate feelings on sex, affection, communication and exclusivity in relationships. Following the conversation, participants were provided a date to go on together.

Sara Gonzalez, bisexual freshman in pre-biological/pre-medical illustration, and Caleb Weatherby, bisexual sophomore in philosophy, reflected on their conversation and date.

So, the evening started off with some ice breakers and the interview in the Daily office. It was awkward, about as awkward as meeting a stranger some nice people had set you up with, but the questions helped us open up to each other a bit, and they shed some light on the funny and creative person that Sara is.

Looking back, the interview questions were just the tip of the iceberg, and the night continued in a positive direction as we left the office and made our way to Dairy Queen. I think we got there around 7:30 p.m. and chatted until they closed up at 10 p.m.

The date was a total blast, and we drove around the Ames countryside talking some more afterward. Overall, I’m glad I decided to sign up for Daily Dates. Totally not what I expected, but what I got was a cool friend who shares some wonderful similarities.

As of April 3, 2018, Sara and I still talk and hang out. Thank you.

Sara Gonzalez’s Reflection

The Daily Dates went great! Caleb is so fun to hang out with, we can talk for hours about everything. He is really open-minded, goofy and just great to be around. Daily Dates was a great way to get all the awkward questions out of the way, it really did help the rest of our conversations to be really open and honest with each other. During the interview, I was really nervous and felt awkward, but afterward, we went to Dairy Queen and talked until it closed, then we went cruising in the Iowan fields and it was really nice. We’ve been talking ever since. I’m really glad I signed up for it 10/10 would recommend, quality matching!
