The date

Our daters had a meal at Smoke & Mirrors

First impression

Michelle: “I have a thing for guys that wear glasses. I find people who wear them are easier to talk to.”

Dylan: “She’s super lively, chatty and quirky in a good way.


Michelle: “We had a lot of stuff to talk about and it helped that he’s quite knowledgeable about various topics. We covered things like language, art and sports.”

Dylan: “She’s fun to hang out with and can make anyone laugh. We share the same sense of humour and had good banter going.”

Awkward Moment

Michelle: “It was kind of awkward when we first met but we had a lot of common things to talk about throughout the night.”

Dylan: “There wasn’t really any. She was talking most of the time so she filled up the silence.”


Michelle: “Both of us don’t have Instagram so we went old school and exchanged numbers.”

Dylan: “We talked about art so we went to an art gallery at Raffles City to have a quick look around and critique the different pieces.”


Michelle: ♥♥♥♥ “He’s a nice person to hang with, so I don’t mind chilling out with him again. The whole date turned out well.”

Dylan: ♥♥♥♥ She’s fun to be around and is cool to hang out with but there were no sparks for me.”

Smoke & Mirrors

The food

We shared the roast duck with truffle sauce, lamb kebab and tuna salad.” – Dylan

The drinks

We both had a tequila-based cocktail. His had a flower on top – very Instagrammable. It was the obvious winner.” – Michelle
