I have been to two blind dates. The first (a long and very funny story!
) was this guy I had known when I was 6 and he was 11 (I think), and I actually had my first crush on his brother, who was 9 then. He asked my relative to ask me to dinner along with some more people, wich she did, so it was a semi blind date. He fell in love, but I didnÂ´t, but I couldnÂ´t get rid of him and I had my flat full of flowers and him talking to my anwering mashine everyday...He finally ALLMOST stopped phoning me when I told him I was starting to see and old friend...which actually was my friend "Philip" - must have been a french guy, and was in fact my refrigerator
The other time a mutual friend set us up for a dinner in a restaurant, unfortunately my friend cheted and showed him pics of me, so I asked for pics of him as well, but would have wanted it to be completely "blind". We also changed emails for a few days before the date.
That date went wery well, to say the least...he almost moved in the same day
and allmost 4 years later we still live together and have a son!
As for not seeing each other before, I thought of the date as a "nothing to loose" thing, I wanted to go with open mind, for the worst it would be one lousy evening, but it could turn out to be a fun evening, and as I had nothing better to do, why not? But I had my friend telling me it was a nice guy, so maybe it was not a chanche.
But still, thinking about it, even if I didnÂ´t know anyone who knew him...I think if would be fun to have a completely blind date! But then again, our community does not have as many dangerous people as in the US...
Am I going in circles here?
Good luck on you date, since you have "spoken" on the internet, and found a connection there, there is nothing to worry about. For me the "mental" connection weighs the most, and if that is there, the physical connection will follow.
