Find me a date: Roxanne and Jesse

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

By Kylie Wong

The date

Our daters had a meal at The Market Grill

First impression

Roxanne: "He's very polite, but at first glance, he's not my type. However, when we both ordered beer instead of wine I felt a connection."

Jesse: "She's really cool-looking, not the typical girl you see on the street. She has a poker face and is difficult to read – but in a fun way."


Roxanne: "I had a good time but felt like he was more of a friend. He feels like someone I already know well." 

Jesse: "I'm not really sure because she was jetlagged, and I'm in the middle of an allergy situation. It's hard to tell but we had a good chat."

Awkward Moment

Roxanne: "No awkward moments. We went straight into conversation and it was very friendly."

Jesse: "Not really, I don't think so. I think I might have interrupted her a couple of times in the middle of the conversation. That was a bit awkward."


Roxanne: "Both of us exchanged IG handles before we parted ways."

Jesse: "I walked her to train station and exchanged IG handles so it's possible that we might go out again."


Roxanne: ♥♥♥♥♥ "Even though there was no chemistry, I had a really good time. I can definitely see us going out again as friends."

Jesse: ♥♥♥♥ “It was a very easy date. Meeting someone for the first time, getting to know each other is much better than being on Tinder."

The drinks

“I had an IPA. It was quite mellow, so not quite what I expected. But beer is still beer, so it's fine.” – Jesse
