Something new! A couple years ago, just for the heck of it I created a profile on Plenty of Fish, a free online dating site.
You can read about my experience here.
It was terrible! I quickly took my profile down. I know it works for most people, just not for me!
But recently I got this invite for a speed dating event about two minutes from home!
It cost $20.00 and I went last night.
It was a 50 and over event and so I thought at least they aren’t lying about age and weight!
It was a hoot! I really enjoyed it! There were some kooks but there were some quality people as well.
There was a couple of IT people, a pilot, a journalist, financial analysts, etc. As well as some lucky retirees.
So you get a list and you circle yes or no after 6 minutes, if they say yes to you the agency shares your info and you go on a date.
I started out No No No No No! Um I got a little worried, but then things started to look up and I circled yes to a few!
Now lets see if they did and if I actually go on a date! I have really been alone for long time, but it might be good to expand a little.
Like my mom used to say…”theres just not that many shopping days left till Christmas.”
Well, that was interesting at least! I would do it again for sure.
Have you ever done that?
