I've had my radio show for over six years and can talk to anybody -- or so I thought. In some cases 90 seconds felt like three, but in most cases, 90 seconds felt like an eternity. 189" from Chicago who couldn't wait to tell me he was a lawyer. While that may impress some women in Chicago, here in DC where there are more lawyers than cherry blossoms, I was not impressed.
Let's face it; dating is exhausting, so if I can meet an array of men in one night, I'm all for it! Who knows, maybe 50 years from now, when we're on our porch swing looking out on our sprawling farm we can tell our grandchildren how we met. Though I will make sure the Pinot Noir is never out of reach!
It does have a ridiculous factor about it, but, hey, you never know who you may meet if you don't go out and try. After all, misery loves company and two broads are better than one.
I decided I needed a partner in crime in this little adventure, so I dragged... We have known each other since we were 15, so we have had many adventures together. The women were seated on a couch while the men were on a bench and, after each conversation, the men would move down the row.
Armed with my Broadminded recording equipment, a large glass of Pinot Noir and Allie by my side, I was ready to begin my quest to find "The One". It was just like a conveyor belt, which was fitting, since Allie and I felt like Lucy and Ethel, but instead of delicious gourmet chocolates speeding past us, we had Milk Duds.
I've been talking about it, thinking about it and wanting to do it for ages. He has a 16-year-old son who is, as he put it, "the light of my life." I don't know if he's "the one", but he's definitely a great possibility. On a scale of 1-10, I'd put it around a 6, maybe 6.5. Probably, especially now that I have the hang of it and realize that is isn't so bad.
As a STILL single, busy mom with a hectic lifestyle, I actually like the concept of speed dating; being able to go on several "mini dates" in one evening. We spoke for a while after the whole speed dating part was over, so we'll see where it goes from here. Maybe not in a bar next time, but perhaps in a more personal setting at a table in a nice restaurant...
), Mark told me about his dating company and its concept, which is quite unique.
Events and Adventures believes that “having a great social life and meeting amazing people to date is all about being in the same place at the same time doing something fun together”.
As Valentine's Day approaches, people might be tempted to engage in drinking and texting former lovers. Why do we engage in cell phone communication while intoxicated? Individuals regularly lie to their romantic partners.
I recently decided to foray into the speed dating world. 1420," you don't know this (yet), but you are my knight in shining armor this evening.
But a lot of it was stressful and kicked my butt and as a result, I dropped a lot of balls. So it’s time to get back on the horse, in more ways than one, and I figured why not do something crazy? Other than the first venture, the experiences haven’t been positive, which is probably why it takes five years to try again. So I’m back in the game and I’ll be sharing the journey.
