First impression
Arielle: “He wasn’t unattractive, but he wasn’t my type. He sounded like a 21-year-old frat boy. He did have blond hair though—I liked that.”
Andrew: “I wasn’t impressed when she asked for the sweetest white wine on the menu at a cocktail bar. She was considerate, but her energy was low.”

Chemistry
Arielle: “He used a lot of ridiculous slang like ‘dope’ and ‘homegirl’—in reference to his mother, which to me was very disrespectful. He seemed to be a workaholic and really into partying. We didn’t have anything in common.”
Andrew:“The conversation wasn’t awkward or unpleasant, but there wasn’t really any chemistry there. She said that she likes playing kickball and reading mystery books, so we didn’t have too much in common.”

Conversation
Arielle: "The [topic] that stands out most is bathrobes. I had no idea how to respond other than 'uh yeah, really hard to find a good bathrobe,' to which he just told me to go to Saks Fifth Avenue. I don't think we were on the same wavelength."
Andrew: "I think we talked about how difficult is was to play tennis in New York City, and that she didn't like the bacon peanut brittle. In fairness to her, it was only average."

Afterward
Arielle: “We just gave each other a hug and went our separate ways. I’m sure he [felt the same]. If he’d been more into it, he would have asked for my number—which he didn’t.”
Andrew: “We just parted ways. I didn’t ask for her number. There’s no lack of people to date or places to go in New York, so if the chemistry isn’t there, it’s not difficult to move along.”

In three words
Arielle: "I don’t even know how to describe him. I’ll say unique."
Andrew: "Definitely librarian vibes.”

Verdict
Arielle: “I typically go for tall, athletic, clean-cut guys. Andrew was more hipster. He’s a character. I’m not interested in hanging out with him again.”
Andrew: “I didn’t have a bad time on the date. I thought she was a very kind, and I bet she thought I was energetic and potentially interesting, but she just was not for me.”
