Review

Half the battle with dating is reading the signs correctly — you think your date fancies you, but maybe they’re really plotting their escape route through the fire exit in the restaurant kitchens. Some daters have unnervingly good poker faces; others are dribbling with lust and awe. 

Primary school teacher Richard is in the latter camp, making it absolutely obvious that he likes criminal justice worker Jess by handing her an adorable letter written by one of his pupils.

Train driver Dean is just as unsubtle, literally leaping out of his chair when his date arrives. The question is: will channelling Romeo end well, or more tragically, à la Shakespeare? 

Summary

Train driver Dean admits he is terrible at reading signals when it comes to love. Will veterinary nurse Celine help him get his love life back on track? Ex-boy band member Jay and call centre manager Brett reveal surprising truths from their respective pasts, while primary school teacher Richard tries to win over criminal justice worker Jess with a letter from one of his pupils.
