The date

Our daters had a meal at Se7enth.

First impression

Joey: “I thought he made some effort to dress up and looked quite good.”

Rico: “She seemed pleasant and looked like a simple and humble person.”


Joey: “He felt more like a colleague or friend – it wasn’t very romantic because we have a lot of mutual friends. We also talked about work most of the time.”

Rico: “I think she was just going with the ow, but in a good way. I enjoyed the date but there wasn’t a connection. She seemed more like a hi-bye friend.”

Awkward moment

Joey: “He was very eloquent and great at keeping the conversation going.”

Rico: “There were moments of silence when we’d try to think of questions to keep the conversation going. It wasn’t too painful but as long as we talked, I was more relaxed.”


Joey: “After dinner, we went to the restaurant’s bar. We talked about more personal matters like family and relationships but I don’t think there was any spark.”

Rico: “We grabbed a drink at the bar to continue talking and exchanged numbers.”


Joey: ♥♥♥♥♥ “We exchanged numbers and I think I’ll keep in touch with him as friends first with no specific agenda. He texted me the day after the date but we haven’t made plans to hang out.”

Rico: ♥♥♥♥ “I will definitely keep in contact with her. If there’s a chance, I’d go out with her again but I think she wants to focus more on her career.”
