Last Wednesday, OkCupid.com released CrazyBlindDate.com , or, as I like to call it, the Best Thing Since Sliced Bread (BTSSB).
I’m lucky to have the best domestic partner in the world, who informed me of the release that very day, with an intro of, “Let me live vicariously through you.”
No problem, Jules.
I signed up immediately. When they have a date for me, I get to see a blurry photo. I don’t get to read a profile, just a sentence or two. I just show up and agree to spend at least 20 minutes with this person. I was able to specify that I only want dates in bars, thank goodness.
My date sees this photo of me:
I’m trying to figure out if my five year plan is insane like all my friends say or good planning like I think. Please advise.
I met a new friend on Saturday night who informed me that all guys will interpret this as: “She wants kids.”
I explained that the beauty of this line is that I get to make up a new five year plan for every single crazy blind date I go on.
He wasn’t convinced.
Tonight I shall share my plan to establish sufficient passive income by signing up for a new pyramid scheme a month and buying misspelled domain names to fill with links to my various pyramid schemes (and plaster with other ads).**
If Eric, 31, lover of rock and roll, is still around after that…
…let’s just say it’s probably a pretty good litmus test.
Is that how I would like my next romantic relationship to be characterized? By hilarity?
There are worse things, I think.
In a rather perplexing twist, my popularity on nerve.com has increased dramatically since I joined the BTSSB. Which leads me to the point. I have a lot of dates coming up. Some of them I’ve exchanged emails with, and know what they look like. Some of them I haven’t. For you, my dear readers at home, I am including in an iframe the Google Calendar I have named “Susie’s Dates.”
Here it is:
As you can see , I have the previously mentioned date tonight, THREE dates tomorrow night, followed by a few nights off primarily due to the fact that I do, actually, have a life.
Who can’t wait? I can’t!! And, rest assured–recent evidence aside–this is the best and most accurate news source for the next installment of Susie J’s Crazy Blind and Other Date Adventures.
*My headline is now, “My friends call me Boss”, FYI. That’s all that’s changed though.
**What do you think?! Good Five Year Plan or Best Five Year Plan Ever?
