It was a good night. The conversation, it flowed like wildfire. We have a lot of similar interests around yoga and meditation so there was actually a lot of connection. It made for an interesting night. She’s a very, very intelligent woman.
It was funny,at one point she was like “are we going to go deep?” I’m like, “please, that’s what I do.” She’s like, “Okay, you’re going to think I’m weird.” And I’m like, “I promise you, that’s impossible. There’s no way that you can make me feel weird because the weird and wonderful is exactly where I live. That’s my jam. Let’s get into it.”
I’ve read Blind Date before and people often talk about what they talked about on the date. At the end of it I had to laugh and I was like, “you know, if we mentioned what we talked about, we’re going to seem, like, truly insane, right?” It became a bit of a cheeky little camaraderie thing there, which was fun.
She’s got very broad interests. She loves her podcasts. We had a lot of discussions about all kinds of, like, fringe things. She’s written books and she’s writing another book. They’re fiction, kind of fantasy-esque with that air of sci-fi. She used to teach Kundalini yoga, which to me was fascinating as well.
I didn’t feel a spark and I’m pretty good with reading other people, and I don’t think she was feeling a particular spark, but we did feast wholeheartedly.
It was a lovely and enjoyable experience. And she’s an absolutely lovely person. Really, really nice. Everything was there. Food was great. Company was really good. But for me, I didn’t feel a spark or any kind of romantic pull in that direction.
She was speaking about things and podcasts that I’m interested in, so I kind of want to get in contact to have a coffee and talk books. I dropped her home at the end of the night.

Travis was lovely. Really inviting and really easy to talk to. He definitely had a lot of character. He is quite spiritual, and musical and a man of many talents. A bit of a Swiss army knife of a human.
We talked about health, yoga, a little bit of religion and politics. A bit of COVID chat. We’re on the same level about the COVID situation.
He recently finished a mentored water fast, and I used to fast as well a bit.
We also talked about the book I wrote. It’s kind of like a modern version of Romeo and Juliet with, like, a touch of supernatural to it. I wrote it when I was 17. At university, actually. And I sat on it for 10 years. I’m working on another novel now.
We talked about aliens. That was probably a highlight. We talked about our UFO experiences — it’s a big wacky. I had an experience about five or six years ago in Perth and also in Palm Springs when I went to a conference with this famous guy called Emery Smith.
There’s a documentary about him on Netflix. He’s an ex-trauma surgeon assistant who becomes a yogi. He’s got a full science background and has made contact with alien life multiple times.
So Emery had this event that I went to, and I saw multiple things. It was crazy. So Travis was onboard with that. I don’t know how it came up. I just got that vibe that he was pretty alternative. You can tell sometimes.
Travis is an amazing person — there’s so much to him. He’s engaging, friendly and animated. But he reminds me of my dad too much. And I don’t really want to date my dad.
The whole musician thing, and they literally talk the same — it was too much. My dad’s a bass guitarist, he’s done back-up vocals and been in bands all his life.
We added each other on social media, maybe we’ll keep in touch, but we didn’t make any plans to catch up again.
