Like my grandmother always said “If you’re looking for love, it ain’t gonna find you sitting around the house.” So one day I decided to step out of the box when it comes to my search for Mr. Right and open myself up to new things and in turn have some fun. I decided to take a leap of faith and let my good friend set me up on a blind date for the first time and let’s just say the experience was something straight out of Belly mixed with Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood, spiked with Friday After Next and a dash of Nutty Professor on top.
My “amazing, funny, built like an athlete, every woman’s dream” date showed up overweight, on the sizzurp, driving dirty and dressed in his Top Flight Security of the World uniform, and those aren’t even the highlights. Not even 45 minutes into the date he used a silent moment to ask the blind date question of all blind date questions: “Sooooo, can I lick your butt?” I’m sorry what?! Hotmess.com wouldn’t even begin to describe it. Of course, I did what I should’ve done 45 minutes before and that was high tail it out of there. Since this was my first date understandably I was a bit shaken and put off from ever doing it again, but after a few jokes with friends, a good tongue lashing for the matchmaker and some wine to calm my nerves, I think I would be willing (somewhat) to try again…with some dressed in all black like the Omen type girlfriend back up of course.
I know all blind dates aren’t like this one, but situations like this are exactly why I prefer to find love the old fashioned ‘just bumped into each other in Shake Shack’ kind of way. I know love won’t find me sitting around the house, but I’m not sure if it’s going to find me on a blind date either. Let’s hope the next date goes a bit better.
What’s the worst date you’ve ever been on? Are you open to blind dating?
