Would you go on a blind date? About four years ago my friend, Liam was set up on a blind date by his sister. Back then, he worked in advertising and even though his job was very social, he had the hardest time finding someone that he felt a connection with. Almost 4 years on and they are happily expecting their first baby any day now. They both say that they went into the evening with an open mind, just hoping for a nice conversation. That took off tons of pressure and made them both feel comfortable.
On the other hand, my friend Sofia used to be a notorious blind-dater, but she found the one living just two floors above her :). She said that blind dates were too nerve-wracking. Each time she had that underlying feeling that it might be the one and when it didn’t work out, she was crushed. It’s amazing how the universe works.
As for me, I don’t think I’d be good blind date material but then again, it can be very exciting to meet a new person who might not turn out to be a partner, but can end up being a great friend. Do you have any funny, heart-warming or scary blind date stories?
P.S: If you're thinking about going on a blind date, here are a few great tips to check out.
