Oh, that's a fun one! I met this Italian guy at a house party in Moscow, he invited me over for dinner at his place the next day, so I agreed and came hungry.

We went for dinner and drinks, and after that he wanted to take me home and I said, "No." To which he asked, "But why? Is it because you're not shaved?"

What is your spirit animal?
Red wine is my spirit.

Gary Date Our Readers Time Out Hong Kong

What kind of person is your ideal date?
Someone who is passionate, has a great sense of humour and loves a good
adventure.

Where would you go on said ideal date?
I'm a big foodie so it would definitely start with dinner and a great bottle of wine. After that, it would have to be somewhere we can dance and have a good laugh.

What song best describes your love life?
Is there a song about trying to find a date through a magazine feature?

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose?
I would choose teleportation. I have an insatiable thirst for travel and to be able to teleport to any destination around the world would mean that I wouldn't miss a single festival or celebration. I'd be able to go somewhere epic every weekend.

I love to cook food from different countries, so I'd probably cook something from her favourite travel destination or from mine.

A white rabbit – follow the white rabbit...

Dusty

Name: Douglas, but I prefer Dusty
Age: 32
Job: Editor
Looking for: Girl

Dusty  Date Our Readers Time Out Hong Kong

How would you describe yourself?
I'm sure it's more interesting to find out for yourself.

And what kind of person is your ideal date?
The kind of person who lives by the motto, "Isn't this supposed to be fun?"

Where would you go on your ideal date?
Honestly, it's more about the company. The people make the place.

What song best describes your love life?
Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others, by The Smiths

What was your Worst. Date. Ever?
I was romancing a girl, and on this particular date we finally went home together. So far so good. However, it hadn't come up in conversation that she was something of an insomniac, which made for a pretty restless night (and not in a good way). At about 5am when she decides to go home, she manages to break the lock on my front door, locking us in. We have to call a locksmith and yell questions and answers back and forth through the door to try and get us out. This wakes up my housemate and results in a round of awkward introductions and explanations. And then there was the hefty bill for getting the locksmith up that early. That was a pretty calamitous occasion.

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose?
The ability to speak fluent Cantonese.

If you had someone over, what would you cook them for dinner?
Uh, well… First, I'd have to purchase a stove. And some saucepans. Then I'd likely need to get some plates. Oh, and probably requisition some knives and forks too. I guess after all that we could probably think about answering this question?

What body part do you find most attractive and why?
Eyes, but a pretty smile is fairly killer.

What's an ideal weekend to you?
Probably one that doesn't require me spending any time in the office.

What is your spirit animal?
A bear. Hibernation's an attractive concept.

What's your favourite spot in Hong Kong?
Any media event with free food and/or alcohol.

And what kind of person is your ideal date?
Someone who laughs at my Japanese school girl impersonation.

What song best describes your love life?
No Scrubs, by TLC.  

What was your Worst. Date. Ever?  
When I was younger a guy asked me out to the movies, but I didn’t realize it was a date, so I brought my brother and sister along… Let’s just say I’ve grown up a lot since then.  

If you had someone over, what would you cook them for dinner?  
Definitely something with cheese.  

Would you rather Netflix or chill on a first date?  
Netflix. But if all goes well... *wink wink*  

What body part do you find most attractive and why?
I find hands incredibly sexy, especially ones that are a bit veiny. Paired that with a set of strong, tattooed arms, mmmh.  

What’s an ideal weekend to you?
A short getaway from the city (or my bed) with a few friends. Could be a different country or just a secluded beach on Lantau.

What is your spirit animal?
Meow?
