Heights:What did you do on your date?

Carson: We went to Coconut Cafe in Newton for dinner.

Heights: What did you order?

Carson: Yellow curry.

Heights: Did you do anything to prepare for your date?

Carson: No. I looked her up on Facebook to know what she looks like, and asked people I know if they knew her.

Heights: What was it like when you first met each other?

Carson: We met right outside of Mac, and she had obviously looked me up too because she knew what I looked like, and she walked over with her friend and said hi. I called an Uber and it was basically ready right then, so we got in and just started talking.

Heights: What did you talk about?

Carson: We talked about a lot of different things—about mutual connections with things that we have, running, things at BC, Appa. We found out that we actually know a lot of the same people, and she’s from Portland, Ore., which is where two of my roommates are from.

Heights: Did anything awkward happen?

Carson: Oh, no. She’s really easy to talk to, down to earth, nice. Conversation flowed really easily. Nothing uncomfortable. It would’ve been funny if there was something, but there wasn’t.

Heights: What do you think the future holds for you two?

Carson: She’s really nice. I’d go on another date with her. I want to get to know her.

Favorite Song: “Reflection” by Misterwives

Heights: What did you do on your date?

Mika: We went to Coconut Cafe and got some Thai food.

Heights: What did you order?

Mika: I had Pad Thai. It was really good.

Heights: Did you do anything to prepare for your date?

Mika: No. One of my roommates came with me though to check out the guy before we went.

Heights: What was it like when you first met each other?

Mika: It was good. We just asked some basic questions, and it turned out that he actually lives with two guys I know from high school, so that was funny.

Heights: What did you talk about?

Mika: He’s a runner, so we talked about running, because I also like to run. He’s involved in a lot of service organizations and lecture series and we talked about that because that’s also something I’m interested in. We talked about his plans for next year, since he’s a senior, and his abroad experience.

Heights: Did anything awkward happen?

Mika: No. Hopefully he said no too.

Heights: What do you think the future holds for you two?

Mika: I really enjoyed getting to know him and would definitely hang out again in the future.
