Why they’re single:
Eze: He doesn’t have a lot of time to date, and he’s very particular about the type of person he likes.
Billy: He can be standoffish when it comes to the idea of having a relationship.

Ideal date:
Eze: Having a picnic with a bottle of wine
Billy: A walk in the park as the sun sets


First impression
Eze: “I was sitting next to him at the bar for, like, five minutes before I realized it was him. I was surprised bu how nongay he looked, but not in a bad way or anything.”
Billy: “I’d ordered a drink, and it wasn’t until the bartender brought us both menus that I realized we had been sitting next to each other. He seemed nice and down-to-earth.

Eze: “We got along really well, but I don’t think we were each other’s type. It wasn’t really romantic, but he was very friendly and amicable—pretty funny, too.” 
Billy: “He kind of looked like a rocker guy, which isn’t really my type. He had earrings and a big tattoo on his chest. He was from Brooklyn—and he looked very Brooklyn.

Awkward Moment
Eze: “It seemed like he was very not into the fact that I live in Brooklyn, like it was a big turnoff, end-of-conversation–type thing. He said he doesn’t really go there.
Billy: “He was talking about his tattoos, and one of them was some Katy Perry lyrics. So, we started talking about bands we like, and we had very different tastes in music.

Eze: We walked to the train, and I asked him for his number. I texted him, ‘Have a safe trip home,’ and then he was just like, ‘You too,’ which didn’t seem very interested.
Billy: “After about two hours at the bar, I was like, ‘I’m sorry, I’m a grandpa—I need to go home.’ He asked for my number, and I gave it to him, and we just hugged goodbye.

Eze: ♥♥ “He was nice, not a bad person at all. I had a great time, he was very handsome, and I would say it went well. I’m just not sure we’re each other’s cup of tea.”
Billy: ♥♥ “Nothing wrong with it, but not something I’d pursue. It was kind of vanilla. Good conversation. Would I go out of my way to do it again? No.”

Our daters went to The Living Room at W New York Times Square (1567 Broadway,
