i hate it. it all started when i was a junior in high school. my friends and i went to a school dance and one of them volunteered to hook up all 5 of us. we figured that since her man was helping out with this process, he had better judgment in terms of our "types" and all that stuff. since i was young and not so smart at that time, i never even bothered to ask for a photo. of course, growing up in los angeles, any school dance is going to be an event that mimics the oscars. we all go out in style. so here we are at the school dance and my so-called blind date is right in front of my eyes. he's tall, so that's good. he was skinnier than i was, like for real?! can i at least get some meat and muscle? he talked like he ran the show and thought that we were having a good time. oh, and that time he got drinks (non-alcoholic, of course) for himself and forgot about me. he also took the chair, sat down and had me standing. yea, this will always be my image of a blind date. unless it's derek jeter, enrique iglesias or anyone on my future husband list.
online dating is practically a blind date, only you are some what informed. there's profile photos, and if you're lucky enough (insert sarcasm there), you'll get one with a whole montage of his photos in all angles of life. of course, you e-mail for a little bit or talk on the phone before meeting. the rest is history though when you meet them and you find out that the photos they posted were from college, when they all had hair and buffer bods.
the past couple of weeks, my friends (two different women) have asked me to accompany them on their own dating journey. last week, my friend had me go to this match.com mixer at a local bar, vault. it was alright, but the venue was way too small for the amount of people that were there. plus, she was older than i am, so the demographics were totally not what i would be looking for so yea, basically got a lot of potential sugar daddy hits. LMAO!!
if you follow me on twitter, y'all already heard about this. i'm not gonna say much because i will let social media speak for itself. like i said on twitter, i mostly keep my personal life away from social media, but this one warranted twitter attention. enjoy.
