Blind Blind Dates

I don’t get set up on blind dates. Well, at least not often (if you've read this blog for a while, that fact may not shock you..). My last blind date was courtesy of my high school best friend. He wanted to marry me off to one of his missionary companions. It was an ambitious goal. The date turned out to be a dinner with said best friend and his wife.

After dinner, my best friend tried to turn an already uncomfortable two hours into five by suggesting froyo and a movie. I yawned for effect and sadly turned that mess of a night down. After all I had class at 9 a.m. and it was already 8 p.m.

Nailed it with that excuse...

My date then drove me home and asked if he could come inside. At this point I felt like I had already hit my quota for rejections for the night. So he followed me into my living room and we came upon all of my roommates surrounding our fish tank singing Part of Your World.
He left rather quickly after that.

So that typifies my experiences with blind dates.

And now onto the point of the post, last Sunday I met a girl in my ward and we had a really fun yet short conversation. Wednesday I got a call from a strange number and in my attempt to ignore it, I accidentally answered (still haven’t figured out my blasted iphone). It turned out to be this girl asking if I would go on a date with her friend. The conversation in its entirety was hilarious. By the end we were both laughing and frankly acknowledge that this was a bizarre set up. 

She gave me the fellow's name and he's cute. Like really cute. Like the kind of cute that makes you question how cute you are and if you will be cute enough to hold up.

I don't know why confidence dwindles on the precipice of action. It’s rather annoying. Well it turns the date was supposed to be last weekend, but alas I was already scheduled for a trip home so now I obsessively watch my black screen waiting to see if he gives me a second chance. With my luck I won’t be able to figure out how to answer my blasted phone if the time comes.

C'est la vie,

P.S. But seriously, our kids would be so freakin adorable.

Blind dates where it's a double date with an established Couple (especially marrieds!) are always the absolute worst. I think there need to be established rules about levels of coupling involved in double dates. Good luck with your new blind date prospect!

Ummm...I want to live with you and your roommates if you are gathered around your fish tank singing Part of Your World! Best thing I have ever heard!

As a male, if I took a girl home and her roommates were singing Disney songs, I would join in immediately. That's fantastic.

Doubling with married people is the absolute worst!

And everyone should want to live with my roommates. They were fantastic.

Anonymous 3, you would have been a perfect fit for my roommates. Too bad I have no idea who you are and you know very little about me except for the fact I'm going to be single for a long long time. Good luck Disney dueting with the girls in your life!
