Blind Dates

I HATE blind dates, like bad.
I shouldn't though, because I've never had a bad blind date experience.
As a matter of fact, they have all been absolutely great!
(knock on wood)
But every time I get set up on one, I become a crazy person.
I'm talkin a cranky, anxious, negative piece of a human.
I guess I always just expect and plan for the worst.

I bring this up because last night I had a blind date.
Did I want to go?
HAHAHA um... no.
 But I said yes and plans were made.
 I hoped he would ditch last minute. I'm terrible.
Three weeks fresh from the mish, me being his first date home, I didn't want to go.
He picked me up, and it was smooth sailing from there on out! 
He wasn't awkward, he was super sweet, and we had a good time!
Phone numbers were exchanged, and the date was a success.
So, did I overreact before? That's a definite.
But hey, they are scary!

The other 1 1/2 (yes the half is real)
were A-MAZING.
Really though, thought I found "the one" after a few months of dating,
then dumped him for the possibility of a soon-to-be-home-missionary.
(I know. How dumb. Now "the one" is married.)

The 1/2 comes in at the soon-to-be-home-missionary.
I had known his dad for 4 or 5 years before and had always talked about
his son. Said son and I went on one date (only having briefly met once before),
then he left for his mish. I wrote him a couple times, he came home and we dated off and on.
He was jokingly called Mr. Destiny for a while.

And now, here I am, a third blind date later.
No super awesome story, or nicknames.
Only the fact that blind dates are not bad. 
I'm just a baby.

Also, thank the heavens for Facebook! ;)

    1. No, but his cousin (the one that set us up) just texted me and asked if I'd want to go out again! I guess he texted her and said he really wanted to take me out again, but didn't want to bug me if I wasn't interested!

  2. I've had a horrible blind date before and I was stuck hiking up and down a mountain with him. I only did it for a good friend because she liked his roommate and we doubled. She owes me haha. Best of luck on blind dates! Sometimes they turn into the best stories!

    1. Oh man! That sounds awful! The things we do for our friends ;) They do make the best stories! Good and bad! Thanks!! :)
