Height & Dating | Date Gets Off On A Bad Foot

Time Out New York, 1/2/2016

Each week, we take two New Yorkers who swear they're totally undateable, and put our matchmaking skills to the test. Afterward, we find out what went well on their date, and what went horribly, horribly wrong.

Why they're single:

Rui: Moved to 
New York from Japan last spring, so hasn’t had a chance to meet new people and is still 
learning English.
Jacob: His work 
is pretty consuming and requires nights and weekends, but he’s working to make more time.

First impression

Rui: “He was wearing a suit, and he looked like a gentleman and a businessman. He’s nice, but it didn’t feel romantic. My type 
is taller than me, and he was shorter.
Jacob: “They sat her first and delivered me to 
her, almost like a Bachelor episode. She was pretty and nicely dressed. She had a formal way about her but was very cordial.”


Rui: “We talked about our jobs, parents and where we’ve been. We found a mutual favorite restaurant in Astoria, but I didn’t 
feel like I wanted to go there with him.”
Jacob: “This is her first year in America, so a lot 
of the initial conversation was about what made her want to come to New York. But there was never a void in conversation.”

Awkward Moment
Rui: “His way of eating food is a little too messy. He spilled a lot of things on the table—dessert, bread, meat. It seemed he didn’t care about that, so I didn’t say anything.”
Jacob: “She asked when my last long-term relationship was and how long it lasted, which is a fairly forward thing to ask on a first date. I guess I was a little taken aback.”

He seen the positive on the inside of her, but she left his height keep her from knowing and connecting with him beyond what she could see. What a shame.

It seems as if she was trying to find reasons not to continue seeing him. Be it a height thing or not, that is kind of crappy.
