Some­thing’s Brew­ing

Herworld (Singapore) - - WOMAN OF THE MOMENT -

Be­fore the date: I’m usu­ally quite calm be­fore meet­ing a new man, but I had rst-date jit­ters for this one. I guess it’s be­cause 28-year-old Adam* and I hit it off while chat­ting on­line, and found we had a lot of com­mon ground when it came to books, lms, art ex­hi­bi­tions and travel. He also de­scribed him­self as a book­ish per­son (a big plus in my book!). The date: Adam ar­rived early for our cof­fee date. He was smiley, condent and main­tained eye con­tact (so far so good). More im­por­tantly, he was a good con­ver­sa­tion­al­ist. I liked how he man­aged to ask about work and per­sonal life with­out seem­ing as if he was pry­ing.

I also liked how he was can­did and didn’t hold back. In fact, he shared that he had been chat­ting with some­one on a dat­ing app and had as­sumed she was sin­gle, only to sud­denly re­ceive a text from her to cease con­tact be­cause her hus­band was fu­ri­ous. I guess guys get two-timed too. Af­ter the date: We’ve gone out a sec­ond time. I’m not sure if this will go fur­ther than friend­ship, but I’m happy to take things slow and see where it leads us. *Names have been changed.
