The pair of nostrils that I have works just fine.” Laughter would follow and a huge sigh of relief from my date realizing that I wasn’t actually an ogre on the prey.

It was harder to strike conversation with some but I quickly devised a way to make things a little cordial -thanks to the wine- and in no time there was laughter and beautiful genuine smiles and what do you know…free flowing conversations! ” They would ask a little too nervously than they would have liked to admit. From there the rest of the conversation would flow but I would still notice the guy trying to catch a glimpse of my nostrils every 52 seconds or so just to be sure.

Now, imagine you are in a room with a little over twenty people.

Twenty diverse people, ten of whom you are about to go on mini dates with. Some white, some black and some with complexions in-between.

In the case where both of you mark YES for each other Ian Isherwood ( Founder and CEO of Date Me Kenya.com) will then let you know about your match via email the next day without wasting any time (because he understands that when it comes to a possible new partnering, there’s no time to waste) and share private contacts with both of you because up to this point he is the only one with your personal contacts.
