The date

Our daters had a meal at  Publico

First impression

Erin: “He was friendly and had a lovely smile. He seemed like a gentleman too!”

Keefe: “She seemed like a very nice and intelligent lady.”

Chemistry

Erin: “We could talk casually as friends but there were no spark or connection of any sort.”

Keefe: “We had a comfortable conversation. I think we can be good friends but there was no special spark.”

Awkward moment

Erin: “We were able to hold a conversation but a few minutes into the dinner, I could tell that we belong to different worlds.”

Keefe: “I wanted to get the steak but she didn’t. I want my partner to love beef as much as I do.”

Afterwards

Erin: “We didn’t hang out after as it was late and he had a paper to study for that night.”

Keefe: “We had a lot to eat and drink so we spent a lot of time at the restaurant and didn’t hang out after that.”

Verdict

Erin: ♥♥ “As a person, he’s a four but as a potential partner, he’s more of a two as we have different lifestyles and aren’t on the same wavelength.”

Keefe: ♥♥♥ “We followed each other on Instagram but I don’t think we’ll be going out again anytime soon.”
