Trust me, I’ve done my fair share of dating with a lot of help of… ugh, the online dating world. I met lots of great guys and I even found the diamond in the rough once. For a split second, he was my future husband/father of our beautiful trilingual children. Well, I am single at this very moment, so…
OK, I digress, what I want to verbalize is that I don’t think I could ever, in a million years, take on this kind of blog project and so I admire La Blonde for that… for communicating with guys on the daily. Yeah, it may sound easy (and even fun!) but it can be draining. Remember, I am around to experience all of the date planning with her, so I know all about the hot bodies, the douchebags, the losers who copy and paste stupid messages to her… I’m around for every single laugh and creepy vibe she encounters.
As her roommate, her support, her side-kick in this whole thing, I try to be the voice of reason, I try to see things on a neutral level… i.e. Me, “Are you waiting hours before texting back!? TEXT HIM NOW! No point in playing the game.” You know, the usual.
I am thoroughly enjoying being a spectator of this whole shenanigan. I have to give props to La Blonde on this one as many people would only TALK about doing something (that takes a lot of dedication) like this but she is actually DOING it (you go, girl!).
AND! I am in the process of setting her up on a date with one of my guy friends who recently broke things off with a girl. Question is… what if my matchmaking skills suck and this date ends horribly? Well, I guess it doesn’t matter because she will have 40 or so dates left to go on!
