Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.

Why they’re single:
Juliana: She just hasn't met the right one yet.
Andrew: He hasn't really put himself out there that much.
Juliana: Drinks and then a stroll around the city
Andrew: Start off with a few drinks at a local bar and then go for a walk
Juliana: “I was a little late, but when I got there I thought he was attractive. He was dressed well and had a really cute smile. I think he was a little nervous, though.”
Andrew: “I thought she was super cute—definitely my type. I think she may have been a little frazzled because she was kind of late, but she seemed really nice.”
Juliana: “Once we started talking, I didn’t feel any chemistry. He didn’t really keep the conversation going, so I had to put in a little bit more work than I usually like to do.”
Andrew: “I think there may have been some chemistry. We were definitely able to make each other laugh at certain points. It turns out we both used to live in Boston.”
Juliana: “I asked him his age, and when he said 26, I apparently made a face. I had to be like, ‘Oh, I’m sorry—I just don’t usually date younger than me.’ It caught me off guard.”
Andrew: “For the first 15 minutes, the crowd was pretty loud, so we kept shouting across the table at one another, which isn’t an ideal way to meet someone.”
Juliana: “We got two drinks at the bar, and then we went to the outside patio to hear a bit better. After that, we got some dim sum at a place nearby.”
Andrew: “We grabbed some dim sum and then hugged and said goodbye. I actually forgot to ask for her number, but then we ended up finding each other on Facebook.”
Juliana: ♥♥♥ “He seemed cool. Maybe it was the pressure of knowing that our date was going to be published, but he just seemed very reserved and nervous.”
Andrew: ♥♥♥♥ “She was really cute, and we both like to joke around a lot. I felt like we were getting along. Maybe next time we can start out somewhere a bit more low-key.”
Our daters went to Freehold (45 South 3rd St, freeholdbrooklyn.com)
