However, i'm having trouble remembering any dates of note. Does this mean i never went out? Possibly. Could it mean the majority of the dates i did go on were pretty painless? Could be. Crappy dates are much more memorable than good dates. In fact, and i hate to admit it, but every blind date i've been on has been pretty fun.
I didn't date guys for very long at a time. I was one of those "you know in the first ten seconds" kind of people, who doesn't have to date someone for long to know they just aren't it. Still, I had a pretty good time on the dates i did go on.
Ok, I'm trying to remember my blind dates. I can only remember three. Here they are.
#1. This was probably one of the best dates I went on. Why? Was he really funny and cute and interesting? Maybe. I don't remember. What I DO remember is we played croquet in the park and I DOMINATED. I hadn't play much, or any, croquet at all prior to this and we decided it would be funny to pretend I was awesome and everyone should look out. So they did. And it turns out, I was awesome. Purely by accident. Total fluke. (or was it??) I mean, i was hitting the ball 20 feet, it rolling mere inches in front of the little spicket things. I think i just made that word up. Anyway, i have totally sucked at croquet since, so that was a really good date...
#2. Then there was the time I was set up by an old college roommate. I call this date "Guy who looks like Brian Austin Green on 90210 and didn't get my jokes." We played mini-golf and I had a blast sucking at it and laughing with my old friend.
#3. This date was fun. I was with fun friends and the guy was fun. It maaay have taken a sour turn when I told him in the car that he looked like he could play a villain in a movie. He just had that villain look. Maybe like an evil scientist? I had sort of meant it as a compliment, though I can't explain how, but I remember this guy was good looking. He just looked like he could be evil, so what??
Here's one way to have a blind date be really fun. Have your two younger sisters plan to go to the same restaurant you are going to and then be seated perfectly behind a wall so that you're facing the wall, and then somehow have the sisters sit at a table directly on the other side of the wall so they can flash peace signs and slowly peer their faces over the edge and look at you as you're trying to keep a straight face while talking to your cowboy man named Richard. My sister and I did that for our older sister and it remains a fond memory. It could not have gone down more perfectly.
So my blind dates are pretty pathetic as far as blind dating stories go. Do you have any good ones? I'd love to hear.
