Times Blind Date competition

PUBLISHED: 15:34 14 January 2009 | UPDATED: 16:00 25 August 2010

Win a free meal and, perhaps, meet the love of your life. . .

OVER the next couple of weeks the Kentish Times is playing Cupid to readers looking for love.

Our exclusive Valentine's Day competition is offering single readers the chance to go on a blind date and be treated for a meal for two at a restaurant.

We will fix up couples from Bexley, Bromley, Gravesend, Dartford, Greenwich and Swanley of ALL ages - we want to hear from all over 18s, whether you are a grandmother or a college student. With three age categories - under 35s, under 50s and over 50s, our team will ensure you find a match that suits you.

Romancers will be treated to a meal and bottle of wine at one of six restaurants - Bar de Museé in Greenwich, Caligulette in Bromley, Acropolis in New Eltham, Bartellas in Meopham, Truffles Restaurant in Rowhill Grange, Wilmington or The Ship Inn in Southfleet.

Successful participants will be introduced on the night and have their picture taken by a Times photographer before being left to a romantic date.

Hundreds are expected to apply to our competition, but only a few starry-eyed couples can have the Times Cupid work magic for them.

Just answer these questions - and remember the wittiest, most original answers will fare the best.

What three things would happen on your perfect date?

What is your most interesting talent?

What is the most important thing in your life and why?

To ensure a truly unforgettable date, these answers will be the only things you know about your partner other than their age and name before you meet them.

Send your answers along with your name, address, telephone number and, if possible, a recent photo of yourself to:
