Why they’re single:
Sarah: She doesn’t really prioritize dating, but all her friends are in relationships.
Sam: He can’t really find the energy to date.
Sarah: Hitting up a dive bar and then grabbing pizza
Sam: Playing Xbox, smoking weed and chilling
Sarah: “He seemed like he was kind of nervous, and he was talking really fast right off the bat. It was pretty clear early on that there wouldn’t really be any connection.”
Sam: “The night started off with her being late, but she called the restaurant, which I thought was considerate. I thought she was cool, but she wasn’t really my type.”
Sarah: “He told a lot of stories—a lot of stories you probably shouldn’t tell on a first date, like how he’s racked up speeding tickets, hated school and never dates.”
Sam: “I think I may have talked too much, but it didn’t seem like we had much in common. I know how it feels when you get that spark, but it wasn’t really there. I’m not a bullshitter.”
Sarah: “We both had Project (Red) iPhones, so I brought it up. He thought it was for breast cancer. And at one point, he just got up from the table and left without saying anything.”
Sam: “I could tell by the look on her face that she wasn’t into it when I said I just like to play Xbox and chill and work out. She was more into going out on weekends and stuff.”
Sarah: “He pulled out his wallet to leave a tip, and it was just a folded-up piece of paper with cards inside. He was like, ‘Oh, I lost my wallet.’ After that, we walked to the subway.”
Sam: “We rode the train for a few stops and then said goodbye. She didn’t ask for my number. I was like, ‘See you!’ But we live in New York, so I probably won’t see her.”
Sarah: ♥ “Overall, I don’t think we were a good match. I was a little disappointed in his lack of enthusiasm. I’m gonna chalk this one up as a crazy experience.”
Sam: ♥♥♥ “She didn’t like that I’m kind of lazy, she didn’t like that I smoke weed, and she thought my friends were a little weird. But, all in all, it wasn’t a bad thing.”
Our daters went to Kings County Imperial (168 1/2 Delancey St, Lower East Side)
