The date: our daters had a meal at Audace

First impression

Isabel: "He has a sweet temperament and is very friendly."

Alex: "She's very pretty and a bubbly person. It was easy to talk to her and she dressed up for the date."


Isabel: "I guess we both have different wavelengths and frequencies. I'm pretty sure we have different personalities. The conversation was pretty superficial, mostly about life, food and our interests. We didn’t share any chemistry but it was nice meeting him."

Alex: "There were no sparks – I just didn't feel it. We have different interests I guess."

Awkward moment

Isabel: "There were a few awkward silences on occasion."

Alex: "At the start, probably. Awkward pauses here and there."


Isabel: "We exchanged Instagram handles and phone numbers out of courtesy. He wanted to drive me home but thought it wasn’t nice to hitch a ride considering we had just met."

Alex: "We went back home. I drove and she took the bus. I offered to send her back but she wasn't that comfortable with the idea I guess."


Isabel: ♥♥♥ "It’s great to find out that he’s actually my senior from secondary school. If things work out, then it works out. If things don't work out, then I’m quite okay too."

Alex: ♥♥♥ "It ended on a friendly note. It was interesting and hopefully, we’ll keep in touch. I’ll probably text her."

Restaurants, French



The atmosphere 

"The restaurant's nice and spacious. You can even see the chef preparing the meal." – Alex

The food 

"We had the most amazing appetiser ever – an apple sorbet with grilled eel and foie gras. That was my favourite dish of the night." – Isabel

The drinks

"I ordered a bespoke drink. The cocktail was made by the manager himself according to what I like. I loved it." – Isabel
