Things to Know Before Dating a Durham Girl

Looking for a girl who is an absolute 10? Congratulations, you’ve found her in the DU woman!

A Dunelm gal can work hard in the Billy B, and then play harder drenched in Klute juice. If you've managed to bag a right swipe, she'll change your life- just like Paddy's did in freshers week.

But as alluring and fascinating as she is, the Durham woman is the most paradoxical female with access to an e-mail address. The journey to her heart is longer than the Flat White queue on a Saturday. But for the patient, here is all you need to know about her:

She’s very bright, but not like Oxbridge "bright". Obviously she aced her A-levels, but she is not the 8 essays a week kinda girl. Your love of Foucault may impress her, but if your banter is sub-par she will ditch you before you finish your first £2 pint at the Swan.

She’s sexually adventurous. She is likely a member of Kink Soc. Yes, it exists...

She hates cliches- besides the Klute playlist. Obviously in her culottes and Stan Smiths, the Durham girl is truly indie. She is sarcastic, quirky and authentic, yet somehow in Klute she does the Macarena unironically. If you stay on the dance-floor for long enough, you will witness her jamming out to Reach for the Stars, and singing her heart out to That's Amore.

She is (an) independent (learner). This one only counts if your Durham babe does Humanities or Social Sciences- which btw is mega likely. With two contacts hours a week, she had to learn to teach herself a whole degree.

The Durham girl is a puzzle within a riddle, but you wouldn't have it any other way.
