This article originally appeared on Vulcan Post. And this article is pretty much my reflection on how a small step or rather a few mouse clicks can change your life. All I have to say is: So it was one of those days: I was staring blankly at my desktop at work, crunching numbers, preparing for my next business presentation.
I received a notification on WhatsApp!
Was someone going to ask me out to dinner? I peered at my phone with excitement, and guess what I saw:. I just never got out very much.
College was by far the last chance I had at meeting someone, but I blew it, because a good degree would get me further in life than any partner would — so said society. OMG did I get a match? Fast forward 2 hours later, and it was 8pm.
Time to go home. In the cab, I instinctively took out my phone again to see if anyone liked me — nope no luck at all. Then it struck me: You just meet people!
Without having to ask them out in the first place! Immediately, I signed up, paid, and got the details from GaiGai.
This was the second time I had it on; I was dressed to kill or so I thoughtbut at the same time 20 minutes early, pacing the toilet and breaking into perspiration because Singapore is just too damn humid. I was dressed to kill — to kill myself.
I was in the zone, psyching myself up. I finally stepped in, pretending to be nonchalant. Upon entering, I was greeted by the host, Charlene — she smiled a lot, and said a few things which I no longer remember or heard.
The only thing I saw was the empty seat I was led to. So I sat down, looked ahead and wow, I was shocked: Not able to believe my luck, I scanned the room quickly to look at the other 11 ladies — and then at the guys.
Charlene kicked off the session by laying out the rules of the night. All of this was accompanied by good food, drinks and a bowl of cue cards at the table if you ran out of things to say which will happen, trust me. Obviously I had some lines ready, but nonetheless, everything went out the window the moment the actual interaction started.

The first lady, Marilyn not her real namewas a doctor — pretty, but according to her, just too busy to meet anyone. I was pretty nervous at first, and by pretty nervous, I mean I was a train wreck. She probably also thought it was ridiculous of me to want to introduce myself with a joke. Nonetheless, her laughter really put me at ease, and got things back on track — we continued our little chit-chat for the next couple of minutes.
I had fun and I think she did too. Things went a lot smoother with the next 11 ladies; I was less nervous and I think they were too.
Every encounter was different, yet refreshing and fun! So this went on through the night, and as each interaction went by, it become almost easier to open the conversation and I was really enjoying myself. But alas, all good things must come to an end. Before I knew it, it was the end of the night.
There were quite a few nice ladies I had wanted to shortlist, but you could only choose three. I guess that works, since it forces you to really think through your choices.
Had they given me unlimited choices, I might have just listed everyone down or at least 6 to 7 names. So I listed the names of three ladies, submitted my form and left.
But not without asking Marilyn for her number — she was my top choice anyway. Surprisingly, she gave me her number, and in that instance, I felt unstoppable. All these happened just a couple of weeks ago: Type and hit enter to search Search.
