    I’ve been thinking back on first dates (our oldest son is going to his first dance next week) and the trauma I felt asking girls out. I was shy and very unsure of myself around girls. So, I really can’t imagine allowing a newspaper to set me up on a blind date and then having the girl critique me and the date in print. But that’s exactly what this former HEK did.

    I met my wife on a blind date.

    I can’t remember my first date. It either wasn’t particularly traumatic, or it was so bad I’ve buried that memory deep 🙂

    Nowadays they just google each other and check out their myspace profiles first. 😀

    I went on one blind date. It was a double date with a friend, her boyfriend, and her boyfriend’s best friend. Then the guy wouldn’t leave me alone. I had to tell my friend to tell her boyfriend to tell the guy to leave me alone. Ugh. So I’m a little sour on blind dates.
