All Signed Up!

Finally successfully signed up for a speed-dating event today! Kate ended up having to brave the "Have Passport, Will Travel" event in April because I was waitlisted. And when Mitch and I tried to get into the "Fitness Singles" event for May, there was a waitlist as well. But today we finally both got into "Fitness Singles" for July 19. I am so close to crossing off one more item on my list, I can smell it!

What cracks me up about this speed-dating thing is how many girls actually want to try it too—and not just the single girls, mind you, even the attached ones! It's not that the coupled up ladies are looking for an upgrade (which, by the way is an actual speed-dating event, if you're in the market for that). All of them just want to see what the experience is like. I myself am a bit wary of ways of meeting people that seem ... for lack of a better word, inorganic. I know online dating has worked really well for a lot of people, but I'm not quite ready for that yet. I kind of like the idea of speed-dating though because what I'm really after is the experience, and if I actually do meet someone interesting than that's just a great bonus. If not, then I would've had a good laugh and some drinks with my girl friend!

We'll see how it goes. Of course, I will keep you all posted.
