The date

Our daters had a meal at Bar Cicheti

First impression

Fiona: “The restaurant was dim so I thought I was on a date with a Malay guy. I was like 'oh, that's interesting'.

Jaden: “I didn't expect her to be an extrovert. But when I started talking to her, she was very willing to open up.


Fiona: “He's nice and easy to talk to. We had things in common, so we talked about hiking and our school days. But there wasn't a spark.

Jaden: “It's quite hard to tell because we only spent a few hours together. I'll probably just go with the flow and let nature take its course.

Awkward Moment

Fiona: “The conversation was easy so there wasn't an awkward moment. Maybe just short pauses when we were eating or checking our phones.

Jaden: “There wasn't much. We had an endless conversation, one topic would lead to another, so we didn't have any awkward silence.


Fiona: “We exchanged numbers. We also went for drinks after dinner and took the train back together.”

Jaden: “We went to a nearby pub to have a drink and we went home after that. We exchanged contacts and are still talking to each other.


Fiona: ♥♥♥♥ “It was a good night. The conversation was interesting and dinner was great. We can still be friends and see how things go.”

Jaden: ♥♥♥♥ “We had a lot of common topics to talk about and we were both able to relate to one another.
