Find me a date: Lincoln and Jing Yi

These city kids ditched Tinder and let us play matchmaker. Here’s a blow-by-blow of their blind date


The date: our daters had a meal at The Chop House

First impression

Jing Yi: 'I was late for the date but he seemed candid and laid-back.'

Lincoln: 'She looked kind of cute. She smelt good, too – that’s an important factor for me.'


Jing Yi: 'It was comfortable, even with the inevitable awkward silences.'

Lincoln: 'It was fine. We could connect and the conversation flowed.'

Awkward moment

Jing Yi: 'He told me that he doesn’t eat meat. When I asked why, he said it’s because he’s too lazy to cut steaks with a knife.'

Lincoln: 'Maybe just once or twice, because we have no mutual friends to talk about.'


Jing Yi: 'I gave him a friendly hug and we exchanged numbers at the train station.'

Lincoln: 'We continued talking after dinner. We really maximised our night, and I managed to take down her number.'


Jing Yi:  ♥♥♥ 'Actually, it’s a 3.67 because I think we can continue writing to each other but I don’t think we’ll hang out again.'

Lincoln:  ♥ 'She’s very attractive. We understand each other well, and I don’t mind going out with her again.'
