By Dana Varinsky

The date: Drinks and small plates at Bar Chuko (565 Vanderbilt Ave., Prospect Heights, Brooklyn)

First impression
Darius: “She was already there when I got to the restaurant. She wasn’t exactly my type, but the more we started talking, she seemed pretty cool.”
Sylvy: “I didn’t know what to expect, but I was at ease as soon as I met him. He was really friendly. He’s tall, and I’m into that, so I was pleased.”

Darius: “I’d say the chemistry was okay. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t awful either. We spent the majority of the time talking about movies, TV shows and fun celebrity run-ins we’ve had.”
Sylvy: “We got along well. There weren’t immediate sparks, but the conversation was easy. We talked about where our families are from and where we’ve lived—and outdoor movies, too.”

Darius: “She has a lot of really cool stuff going on with her career, so her job was far more interesting to talk about than mine.”
Sylvy: “We've both been in New York for about a year, so we talked a lot about what it's been like. And our roommates; average stuff.”

Darius: “We grabbed ice cream at Ample Hills—we’d talked about it over dinner, and then the hostess suggested it, so we were like, ‘It’s a sign.’”
Sylvy: “He walked me to my train, and we exchanged phone numbers and followed each other on Instagram. He’s already been in touch, which is kind of cool.”

In three words
Darius: Sylviy is "ginger. Overuses emojis."
Sylvy: Darius is "friendly, funny and polite.”

Darius: “[When] I walked her back to the subway, we hugged goodbye and made plans to maybe go see an outdoor movie later. But I’m on the fence.”
Sylvy: “I think we’d hang out again. I don’ t know in what capacity, but we talked about outdoor movie screenings, so we may do that.”
