Blind Dates

A friend from work has been wanting to set me up with one of her boyfriend's friends and I'm not so sure based on pictures and what I've been told that he is anything near what I like in a guy. The big meeting is supposed to be tomorrow. For some reason everyone around me is more concerned with my apparent single status than I am...I can be just as happy on my own. The only person I really trust to do such a thing is my best friend that I have known since elementary school since she knows what I am truly like.

I really dont like blind dates or being set up. I hate that pressure of having to try to impress someone or live up to what they have been told about you.

I was wondering what are everyone elses thoughts on blind dates etc.

you should go. they're fun.

I've been on more than I wish to share and none of them turned into anything but I liked the adventure in the whole idea of not knowing what to expect.

Who knows, you could really like him!

I'm gonna go and try to keep an open mind. I just hope it's doesnt turn like the last time when the guy kept talking about marriage and babies.

One time, I had a blind date...and he took me to Radio Shack.

That was it. That was the whole date.

There was no second date.

I had that happen, only it was a dog park. He spent more time talking baby talk to his dog then he talked to me. Including travel time, we were together and hour and 20 minutes. He picked me up promtly at noon, according to my kitchen clock. I walked back into the kitchen at 1:20.

I had a blind date once..he was a nice guy, but the girl who set us up was determined that we were going to get married (this was in high school). We both kinda agreed that while the other person was nice there was no love connection....no matter how much we told our friend this...some people are so thick.

right now I'd be willing to go on a blind date
I would date anyone under age 40

LMAO. Oy, blind dates can suck. I've never been on one that went anywhere, but I still believe that the best way to meet people is through friends.
