Now on to this week’s date…. Meet Shanny’s match:
Putting this week’s blind daters Hart and Tiffany together was enjoyable and made my job as a matchmaker easy. I’ve known Hart – a Liam Neeson lookalike – for years now and have met his ex-girlfriends so pretty much know the type of women he fancies. Therefore, I knew him and Tiffany – a savvy, intelligent, red-headed realtor – would hit it off.
Tiffany describes herself as adventurous and spiritual, which Hart is attracted to. He likes an intelligent woman who is confident and well put together. Tiffany has a sexy smile, almond-shaped green eyes, and has adopted her own personal style that is a mix of corporate and trendy. As a bit of a workaholic, I felt Hart could potentially balance her out with his laid back, no-need-to-stress attitude. Tiffany looks for a sense of humour in a guy, so Hart’s playful personality and charm and boss man persona felt like an ideal match.
Both daters are looking for a long-term relationship and are at the perfect age for settling down. Tiffany’s idea of a great first date is hitting up a live music spot and she’s also a foodie who likes trying new restaurants in the city. You can always catch Hart sipping on cocktails in the downtown core at the latest hotspots. He loves being social and appreciates a woman who likes to join him in a culinary experience. With all these commonalities in check, we sent these two daters to East Thirty-Six hoping sparks would fly.
Here’s what the server observed about their date:
“They seemed quite smitten with each other, they were in good conversation throughout the evening. They left together, possibly to get a nightcap somewhere else.”
After interviewing both Tiffany and Hart, Shannon’s expert opinion is…
We have a match! Love was definitely in the air during this week’s Sex & The 6ix date, and I’m excited to share that Tiffany and Hart hit it off fabulously and have already planned a second date. The cutest thing about this match is that they completed their post-date questionnaire together during the date and couldn’t wait to share their thoughts. Hart and Tiffany didn’t want the 6-hour(!) date to end. The blind date continued elsewhere with after-dinner drinks and spontaneity.
We’ll be staying on top of these two, so stay tuned for a follow up post in a couple of months!
