we take life far too seriously....especially when it comes to matters of the heart.
i seem to have a particularly hard time.
i've tried all the dating sites. match. e-harmony (no matches, thankyouverymuch), even plenty of fish. i got picked up on myspace a couple of times too, come to think of it.
either way, the only thing any of these sites has given me is the self-dubbed title 'queen of the first date'. i think i went on roughly 7 or 8 last year alone. painful.
so to get over this first date hump, or at least to rack up some more and to kick off this summer of awesome i'm embarking in a...
the rules are simple.
-one date=one social function with a person with romantic intentions in mind.
-dates have no time minimum. a bad date is a bad date. there's no need to suffer if you need to bail.
-multiple dates with the same person can be counted as long as they occur as specifically different functions. i.e. dinner and a movie does not count. dinner and a movie still doesn't count even if you are at dinner, the subject of a new movie comes up and you then decide to go and see the movie after dinner. dinner and a movie DOES count if it happens on separate occasions i.e. different days.
at the end the winner is whomever has the most dates racked up at the end of 30 days.
the winner doesn't really win anything per se, other than some great stories, possibly a future significant other, and maybe the title of 'master dater'.
to start, all participants will be posting some awesome profiles on plentyoffish.com. blind dates and hook ups from friends are also encouraged.
easy enough, right? who's in?
i have to warn you, i'm a bit competitive. while i don't have a ton of friends, i do feel that i have more than enough to warrant a few blind dates. so go out and scrounge up all those single guy friends of yours. i like 'em not too tall, not too short...a little scruffy. cooking skills definitely a plus.
