Speed Dating Blues


I’m going to be speed dating on Wednesday evening and I’m NOT looking forward to it.

It sounds like torture – going on 10+ five minute first dates all in a row.  I suppose though you know all you need to know about your compatibility and connection with someone within the first 30 seconds.

I plan to get through the evening by having a nice, big martini to start.  Or maybe a beer.  A martini might come off as too I’m-a-professional-drinker.

I’ll keep busy talking to other people and when I finally sit down for the mini dates, my goal will be to make each of my dates laugh at least once.

I think I can pull that off and it seems like a reasonably good attitude to have.  Maye him laugh.  Sweet and simple.

I can do that.
