Work and Blind Dates

Hello Everyone,

Today was my first Saturday all by myself running the store. I was pretty busy. I had no cars on my lot so I had to go and drive them back. We close at 12pm on Saturdays and I didn't get to leave till 1:30pm. Wow.

A couple of nights ago I went out with some new girlfriends downtown. We went to dinner and talked. They spoke Spanish so I got to practice a little. They went salsa dancing after, but I didn't go because I had to get up early the next morning. They were a lot of fun to hang out with.

We were of course talking about boys. My friend wants to set me up. Are you a single person that people want to set up ? They all tell you that you'd be perfect for their friend/brother/cousin.........? Well, I am that person. Apparently I am perfect for a lot of people out there.

Anyways, my friend tells me that she has someone for me. He is looking for a girlfriend to treat well and that he has had bad experiences in the past and that he is a good person, ect....... I was listening with wide eyes until she said that he is just "a really nice guy".

When a girl describes a guy as " a really nice guy" a red flag goes up in my mind. So I asked her: "Is he attractive ?" Then she made a face and shook her head. So then I asked her " If you weren't married right now, would you go out with him?" And she kinda laughed nervously and told me that was a good question. She knew where I was going with that.

Most of my gal friends have pretty similar tastes in me as I do. So, if they are going to set me up I always ask if they would go out with the guy. If they say no, I won't let me set them up. If I am going out with a guy, I have to be attracted to him.

And I will give guys that may not be considered as very attractive a chance if they ask me out and treat me right.  But I won't do that on a blind date.

Anyways, that's all for today.

Hi Sandra.  You also need to consider how he would do if he met me (your Dad) and asked the usual questions.  He has to pass my 'sniff-test' and be quick on his feet as well.  I'm not sure what I would ask, but the my greeting might include:... so... you are the young man who is boning my daughter!  (asked with my arms crossed across my chest with a slightly glaring look in my eye).  

Don't forget... I eventually have to meet him and he has to be good enough for you in my eyes.   Love, Dad

I ususally don't have good experiances with blind dates.
If my friend wouldn't date them, then I probably wouldn't either.
