In this recent episode of Date My Family Season 8, we are introduced to a very interesting gentleman by the name of Toko.
Toko is not your conventional type of man. He relaxes his hair and makes it clear that being a real man has nothing to do with the colour of clothing you wear.
The 27-year-old bachelor is an energetic and opinionated man and works as a business analyst. He wants someone who’s not afraid to show off their confidence like he does.
His deal-breaker is someone who is disrespectful or condescending towards others.
Questionable dress sense and style
Dimakatso is a fun-loving lady who is looking for a genuine guy who knows what he wants in life.
When Toko arrived at her family’s house they couldn’t help but notice that he wore a pink suit and his hairstyle sure raised a lot of questions.
Dimakatso’s sister asked, “Is this how you dress up every day?”
Toko’s answer was that he wants to stand out wherever he goes. However, that did not stop the family from drilling him about his sense of style. Toko became irritated as the family implied that he did not come across as a real man because of his dress sense.
Toko made it clear that he is confident and comfortable in his own skin. The family’s biggest mistake is that they spent more time criticising their guest than describing Dimakatso in a positive light.
It was clear that Toko was not impressed. Not even the loaf of bread he gifted them as a sign of generosity could save the dinner date.
Two years with no relationship
Nthabiseng prefers to date light, skinny and tall men but most importantly, she wants a man with a plan.
Knowing exactly what their friend wants in a man, Nthabiseng’s friends asked Toko what he does for a living. Toko mentioned a whole lot of things- instead of being impressed, the friends thought the bachelor was overselling himself and the friends were not impressed at all.
The fact that he has been single for two years seemed to have left them puzzled but Nthabiseng believes him.
“I don’t mean to bash him but who would want to have sex with someone with that hair,” says Nthabiseng. Ouch! That’s a bit harsh.
The only family that didn’t judge him
Jean-Rita’s family was very pleasant and welcoming. They were asking relevant questions to ascertain whether the bachelor is a perfect fit for Jean.
Toko is asked what he does for a living. Unfortunately, he does not give a straight answer and over-sells himself again. The over-selling part makes the family a bit suspicious. However, Thoko defends himself by mentioning that although he doesn’t have a full-time job, he is not a broke guy.
Wait, didn’t he mention he had a job at his first date?
What’s a virgin controller?
During the dinner date, Toko asked if Jean-Rita is a virgin or not. But when it came to him answering the same question, he found it difficult to say. Instead, he opted to say that he is a virgin controller.
What on earth is that? Well, according to our bachelor it’s his way of saying that he is still a virgin although we highly doubt he is. Toko feels that virgin controller has an interesting ring to it.
Uhm, okay, dude, whatever you say.
In the end, he chose Nthabiseng as he feels like they have a lot in common. At the date he came bearing gifts – two masquerade masks and a bar of chocolate for them to share.
The gift gesture was kind of romantic but unfortunately there was no chemistry between the two. If anything, things were awkward.
Nthabiseng didn’t beat about the bush – she was direct in saying, “there is no second date”.
