You should always be cautious on a blind date, and here’s why.
After connecting through an Internet dating service, two anonymous love seekers realized they were in fact estranged siblings when they finally met face to face last week.
Sarah Kemp, a cleaner living in Edinburgh, Scotland, and George Bentley, a London-based builder, began a correspondence through ForgetDinner.co.uk last November. After several months emailing back and forth, the pair — brother and sister, that is — eventually chose to “bite the bullet” and unite in person.
“I would never have agreed to go to London on a blind date, but we hit it off from the beginning, and our relationship blossomed as we emailed each other more and more often,” Kemp told Scotland’s Daily Record.
After about an hour of conversation at the White Horse, Bentley’s favorite East Ham pub, the two would-be lovers realized they were actually siblings.
