Charlotte

Age: 23
Occupation: Public interest law
Looking for: A guy

How would you describe yourself?
A New Yorker at heart, a foodie, someone who loves to travel and is always down for a last minute escapade.

What kind of person is your ideal date?
Someone funny, kind, smart, and very low key.

What’s been the best part of your week so far?
Coming home to New York City to visit friends and family for Chinese New Year! (Worst part: dealing with the jet lag of a 13-hour time difference)

What’s the best present you ever received?
I made a scrapbook with pictures, tickets and business cards of bars and restaurants, etc from a trip to Spain and the south of France.

What’s something you’ve always wanted to try?
I’ve been wanting to do the hike to Tiger Leaping Gorge in Yunnan, but I haven't had someone adventurous enough to come with me!

How do you prefer your potatoes?
Fried. Must be willing to share fries

Age: 30
Occupation:
Journalist
Looking for:
A gal

How would you describe yourself?

I’m a portrait artist. I love drawing portraits for new people I meet, as well as old friends. I can only work doing something I have passion for and I always love to share my thoughts with people on the same channel.  

What’s an ideal date?
The ideal date should be very relaxed and feel both comfortable and sweet. We shouldn’t need to think about what to talk about or how to answer.

What would you love to do with life?
If I were backpacking and busking in Europe, I’d feel like my dream is being fulfilled.

What’s an ideal weekend for you?
My ideal weekend would be non-stop drawing for 48 hours. If only the weekdays didn’t tire me out so much!

What’s something you’ve always wanted to try?
I’ve always wanted to organise an exhibition of my art, but I think I need to improve my skills before that. I also want to publish my own comic.

Coco
3/10

Coco

Age: 20 something...
Occupation: Right now, marketing
Looking for: A girl I can annoy

How would you describe yourself?
A child at heart, goofy, active, chill and adventurous. I don’t tend to take life too seriously.

What kind of person is your ideal date?
Someone who is confident, intellectually simulating, who I can joke around with and wants to explore life and the world.

What’s been the best part of your week so far?
Either hiking with my dog or surfing.

What’s the best present you ever gave someone? Ever received?
I made super complicated stencils and took that person to do some ‘graffiti’, I then framed the used ‘coloured’ stencils as a gift. Best present ever received must be… bungee jumping!!

What’s something you’ve always wanted to try?
Skydiving… I just haven’t got round to it yet and I want my first try to be somewhere spectacular.

What things would you save if your apartment were on fire?
Living things first: my dog! Then maybe the cat (of course the cat too, j/k). Then my laptop and my phone since all my photos are there. Everything else can be replaced.

David

David

Age: 28
Occupation: Yoga teacher
Looking for: A good man

How would you describe yourself?
With lots of F bombs: friendly, fun, fit and flexible!

What kind of person is your ideal date?
Someone who is adventurous, knows how to have fun and isn’t afraid to have dessert.

What’s something you’re bad at?
Maths and speaking Cantonese. Working on getting better at both though!

What’s the weirdest Tinder pick-up line you’ve ever had?
“I bet you can lick yourself.” (Maybe... But I’m not saying!)

If you found a magic lamp with a genie, what would your three wishes be?
Good health for everybody – being strong and healthy makes such a big difference in your ability to enjoy life. And, partly because I’m Mr Congeniality and because the world really does need it, world peace. Also, unlimited wishes!

Where’s the lamb sauce?
Try Google or TaoBao.

Heidy
5/10

Heidy

Age: 24
Occupation: Marketing and advertising assistant
Looking: A guy

How would you describe yourself?
Weird, a bit crazy sometimes. Daydream a lot.

What kind of person is your ideal date?
Mature, has a great sense of humour, loves all things in the world, tidy and not too picky.

And what exactly would be your ideal date?
Trying new food together and then a movie or a drink is great.

What’s an ideal weekend for you?
Stay at home all day, Netflix and chill. Or go to a quiet café, have a drink or two with friends.

What Hogwarts house would you be in and why?
Slytherin, ’cause sometimes a little wicked thought or spell won’t hurt.

If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about anything, what would you want to know?
Nothing! I’d rather keep it mysterious and discover things by myself.

Kenny
6/10

Kenny

Age: 33
Occupation: Manager
Looking for: A free dinner provided by Time Out. Oh, and a woman too.

How would you describe yourself?
Tall, handsome and extremely modest.

What kind of person is your ideal date?
Someone who’s positive, kind and has a great sense of humour.

What was cool about where you grew up?
Obviously me! Sydney has really gone downhill since I moved to Hong Kong…

What part of the body do you find most attractive?
A great smile – it’s warm and inviting.

What’s an ideal weekend for you?
Taking Friday off of work and jetting to a nearby country – Thailand, Vietnam and Taiwan are all great for a weekend getaway. If I'm in Hong Kong then it'll be a hike during spring/winter or going on a junk during summer.

If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about anything at all, what would you want to know?
What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Risa
7/10

Risa

Age: 22
Occupation: Education Consultant
Looking for: A guy

How would you describe yourself?
Someone who is always up for an adventure! I love exploring new places, whether it’s travelling to a new country or just meandering around a new neighbourhood.

What do you like most about your hometown?
There’s a really cool underground music scene in Seattle, so there’re always small, intimate concerts at the local bars. I love bars with live music featuring up and coming artists!

Who’s your ideal date?
Someone who is authentic and funny. I love someone who exposes me to new ideas and pursuits.

And what about your ideal date itself?
I have a fascination with skylines, so probably sitting outside on a rooftop bar somewhere. I have a list of my favorite rooftop bars around the world and I’m still trying to decide which one in Hong Kong is my favourite.

What Hogwarts house would you be in and why?
I’m not a big Harry Potter fan – please don’t kill me. I always feel like I need to clear that up because people seem to take it very personally...

What habit annoys you the most?
When people bite their string cheese.

Reiko

Reiko

Age: 26
Occupation:
PR

Fun loving, cheerful, enjoying life, slow living.

What kind of person is your ideal date?
It depends, but it’s okay as long as he’s chill.

Tell us something you’re bad at...
Reading maps.

And if you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Patience! I should probably be more patient when thinking about these questions....

If you found a magic lamp with a genie, what would your three wishes be? 
A magic door to anywhere. A clock that can control time. And a house in front of the ocean where I can enjoy my coffee.

Complete this sentence: “I wish I had someone with whom I could share...”
A lot of desserts.

Matthew
9/10

Matthew

Age: 37
Occupation: Business strategy
Looking for: A gal

How would you describe yourself?
Here’s an answer in threes. Three attributes: balanced, steady, optimistic. Three hobbies: reading, traveling, fitness. Three jobs I’ve had: cave tour guide, bagel maker, loading dock worker. Three things to improve on: cooking, photography, Cantonese. Three random things I like: snow, real books, sad songs.

What kind of person is your ideal date?
Independent. Has interesting things going on and brings new perspectives/people/interests into my life. Is genuine and reliable.

What’s something memorable from your childhood?
I grew up on a small animal farm in the mountains. My dad chopped down trees to make a clearing in the forest (seriously). Then he and my mum built our house and barn with their own hands. Yes, the structures are still standing. We had no neighbours and were free to roam the surrounding countryside, far and wide, as long as we were home by dinner.

If you could jump into a pool of anything, what would it be?
Nothing will ever top jumping into the ball pit at Chuck E Cheese as a kid. That is pure joy. If you don’t get the reference, you’ll have to trust me.

What habit annoys you the most?
Walking while on the phone.

What part of the body do you find most attractive and why?
I think nice arms are attractive. Maybe they’re a proxy for the fitness of the entire body.

Olivia

Age: 25
Occupation: Journalist

Short girl with a weird laugh. Love bad puns.

A house full of puppies

What’s the weirdest Tinder pick-up line you’ve ever had?
“I hope you like long walks. I don’t have a car.”

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
To be at least three inches taller.

Complete this sentence: “I wish I had someone with whom I could share …...”
No sharing. It’s mine. It’s all mine.
