The doors of the most popular restaurant on the small screen reopened for another week to welcome a new batch of singles, who came to First Dates with the best of intentions. In addition, the Cuatro program faces its most special week, since this coming Wednesday, February 14, they will celebrate Valentine's Day in style.
Until then, viewers of the program have been able to enjoy a wide variety of dates on Monday night, with very different endings. Raúl, a 36-year-old bachelor, stated as soon as he arrived that one of his great hobbies was visiting amusement parks. He had been living in Japan for 10 years because he wanted to learn to speak Japanese. Now, he was willing to open his heart and to do so he needed to find a person with whom to laugh, have good times and share his life.
His date was going to be Breogán, a 39-year-old single, who came to First Dates again to try to find his soulmate after his failure the previous time. Carlos Sobera showed the bachelor a video in which Raúl could be heard speaking in Japanese. ''He is a man of the world, surely he is not Spanish,'' he declared.
Minutes later the most anticipated moment occurred: the first meeting between the singles. ''It seemed very alternative to me, I was shocked,'' Raúl commented when he saw Breogán. The initial interest of the singles in getting to know each other helped the conversation between them flow like a charm from minute one of the dinner.
Furthermore, Raúl said that he was a great fan of amusement parks, and despite not sharing the same interest, Breogán claimed to be willing to go with him wherever necessary. ''While you scream on the attractions, I eat a hamburger,'' the bachelor joked.
At one point during the evening, Breogán commented that he had been without a partner for more than eight years and that during all that time he had had the opportunity to reconnect with himself. ''The most beautiful thing is friendship and that a relationship emerges from there,'' he declared. Suddenly, Breogán confessed that he was very fun as a couple, but the peculiar habits he practiced left his date in shock.
''I might hide the pills in the oven, you might tell me that you bought something and I would hide it,'' he explained. ''It's fun, but enough is enough. He likes everyone to feel comfortable around him. Me too, but we have very different perceptions,'' Raúl assured.
In the final stretch of the evening, laughter among the singles continued to be the main protagonists. But the complicity they were having was not going to be enough to start a beautiful love story. Something that Raúl was noticing, who did not hesitate to reject the bachelor in the final decision.
