Blind date

what's the take on blind dates ? my friend keeps nagging me to go on a blind date with 'this guy' she thinks is perfect for me; but the idea of a blind date just doesn't work for me. how awkward the meetup must be ! how do u even recognize each other ? and let's say u do - what if there is zero chemistry ? what if the conversation is flat and uninteresting ? then u still have to go through the rest of the date out of courtesy.

i think if someone wants to introduce 2 people to each other, they ought to invite them both to the same dinner / function and see if they hit it off. it seems more natural this way.

Why do you need a blind date.... unless you can't find a guy, and you're desperate..... :D

It wasn't a real blind date, I was supposed to meet my boss for coffee and he wanted me to meet this guy, so he brought him along and the guy was showing interest while I ignored him the whole time and kept talking to my boss haha.

It was horrible because I knew his intentions were different from mine, he liked me and I didn't like him.

I don't think I'd ever do it again.

Joud said...

hehe at least u had your boss as a buffer

oops! your chador is showing said...

I had once fixed up my pal's lesbian sister on a blind date with a Gay Gigolo both of whom were blinded to the other's sexual orientation.
Must say, it was quite a laugh. Needless to ask, my pal was in on it too which helped matters a lot.
