Find me a date: Tony and Jia Yin
By Nicole-Marie Ng |

The date: our daters had a meal at Wooloomooloo Steakhouse

First impression

Jia Yin: "He arrived a minute earlier than me and seemed like a dependable guy."

Tony: "She was chatty and friendly. It was easy to connect with her."


Jia Yin: "He was easy to talk to as a friend. But there were no sparks or chemistry."

Tony: "I’m not so sure about chemistry. I couldn't sense if there was any mutual interest."

Awkward moment

Jia Yin: "There were a couple of awkward silences after we were done with a topic."

Tony: "We took some time to warm up to each other, but the food and wine helped."


Jia Yin: "We took the same train back and just continued talking."

Tony: "I asked her for her number but I haven’t texted her yet."


Jia Yin: ♥♥ "There were no sparks. We could talk and got along normally, but I don’t think I’ll see him again."

Tony:  "We are too different in terms of lifestyle and spending habits so I’m not sure if I will pursue this."
