{ Date #12 - KIRSTY FERRELL }


This has been a great experience so far and I knew that when I picked Kirsty up for my last date that it was only going to get better.  Kirsty is a great girl with a brilliant mind and a personality to match.  From the beginning I knew this date was going to be a little different than the others because The Discovery Channel and their crew joined us throughout most of the date.  Unfortunantely one of the crew members let me know a little bit of what we were going to be doing today, so being my mischievious self I played some games with Kirsty.  I tried to make her believe that I hated boats and that I hated the water, which I could tell immediately concerned her.  I kinda chuckled to myself a little and kept playing along with what the date was going to be. 

We drove down to Long Beach through all the traffic and she made me do some of the voices that one of her friends divulged to her that I could do.  After laughing and chuckling for a good little while after doing my Schmegel impersonations we arrived at PF Changs where we had a good dinner and got to know each other little by little.  The dinner was fun but unfortunately a little rushed because of filming stuff and a little of the drama that went down with having the proper permits or whatever.  After the dinner we walked around the pier  and continued to enjoy each others' company.  She seemed a little apprehensive because of the comment that I made earlier about not liking boats or water which led to the next part of our date which was the sail boating. 

Boating with Kirsty was awesome because I really love boats and I was having a blast with this girl, but this was my very first opportunity to go on a sail boat and ride around Long Beach.  This had to be one the best ideas that any of the girls came up with and it was such a beautiful afternoon out there that I don’t think the activity could have gone any better than it did.  Kirsty planned a fantastic date and the boat just made it better and better.  Unfortunately there wasn’t much wind and we weren’t able to do too much sailing, so it mainly consisted of us making fun of each other and running around the docks.  Kirsty was a very pleasant date and I had such a good time with her and I was able to connect with her in many ways.  I can see us continuing on this journey together and going on a second date.  I have gone on dates with 11 amazing women and it will be hard to decide who to take on a 2nd date but I feel good about Kirsty and I am not ready for our relationship to end.

This is the first date that I've thought that Chris acted like a real person... the rest of the dates felt like he couldn't get over the camera being there. This girl brought out what seems to be a real (and likeable) guy. Just saying... she gets my vote. She's cool! :)

I totally agree with th above comment. This is the first day that seemed real and both of their personalities seem similar. I think this may have been the best match.

Umm make babies. You are so cute together

I have noticed that Chris likes to explain to the women which way to walk from the door and where his car is. It's amusing, like in a bellhop sort of way.

Chris seemed to go out of his way to explain that they had a personality connection and a fun time, but I couldn't tell if he was physically into her. Hmm.

And it's Smiegel, not Schmegel. This is not Lord of the Yiddish.

Definitely see the most potential here!

We support this union.

Best connection yet. This date seemed the most natural. Way cool of Discovery Channel to film Mormons in their natural habitat.

Haven't commented up until this point, but this was my favorite match so far!

Stephanie Smith said...

Love them together! They have great conversation and compatibility! Definitely the best match!

Jasmine Marie said...

I'd love to see who chris is actually "physically attracted" to. Like...come on dude.

I couldn't agree more with the comments above. She seemed to bring out the real and funny (who would have thought?) Chris. Plus, she's a structural engineer?! With Chris pursuing dental school, talk about a power couple in the making! Plus, the added bonus of her being a sugar mama while Chris goes to school... My husband and I agree that this was the best date and match yet! Chris would be foolish to let this girl get away...

I loved the humor compatibility of Chris and Kirsty. I'm not sure about the physical attraction though. Both of them seemed to enjoy each other's company but I got the feeling they were going to wait and see what happens in their relationship.

I am so enjoying this season. There have been lots of twists and turns. I love this show.

I grew up with kirsty. We were in the same ward. She is the coolest girl and so well rounded. She's smart, athletic, beautiful, down to earth, fun, funny, kind, social, loves be with her family, loves the gospel, loves her savior, has a strong testimony... I could go on and on about this awesome girl! I hope something works out between Chris and kirsty! :)

Claire said...

you two are perfect for eachother! you two had so much fun and you acted like a couple that's been dating for years & has inside jokes up the wazoo, so adorable!

Danielle said...

Never commented before, but have been watching since Aubrey. It seems like Chris is not a real person in all the videos, until this one. I hope she gets a second date.
