Playing “Hide and Hide” with a Blind Date

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

blind dateI really don’t like blind dates.  I’ve been on my share of them – mostly arranged by friends.  About a year ago my boss had asked me if she could fix me up with her older brother.  Totally awkward position to be in.

At first I said “yes,” but then I thought better of it.  I told her that I didn’t think that it would be a good idea for us to mix business and pleasure – especially with family.

I know that she has my best interests at heart, and wants to see me happy.  I think there’s a line that a boss can cross even in the most social and liberal of work environments.  I certainly appreciate her effort.

So a few months ago when she blindsided me with an email introducing me to a male friend whom she cc’d on the email, I was a bit taken-aback.  So in my attempt to take life by the balls and try new things, so I emailed him.  We exchanged a couple of messages and decided to meet for coffee.

When Men Act Like Teenage Girls

Monday, April 11th, 2011

men act like teensGirls are often stereotyped as dreaming about their futures – who they will marry, what their wedding will be like, how many kids will they have, designing their big house in the suburbs…

Admittedly when I was younger (okay, up until about three years ago), I too pondered these questions.  Obviously none of them have been answered.  I think I was jinxed thirteen years ago when on a folly I went to a Vera Wang boutique and played dress-up in a couple of pricey wedding gowns.
