Blind Dates

Alex (@staylucky) 9 years, 2 months ago

I know this isn’t necessarily a HE “topic” but it got me thinking, as I’m going out for coffee with this girl I met online. I set up a profile to have a bit of a browse around, and low and behold, if you actually make a legit page then people get in touch with you! This chick seems super cute and we’ve talked for a while, but there is obviously now this sinking in feeling of “What if she looks nothing like what I saw, or is nothing how I perceived her?”. I’ll get back to you guys after we meet on Wednesday.

But what I wanted to know was whether or not anyone has tried this in the past and what they thought of the whole thing? Any funny stories greatly encouraged as well!

@staylucky, haven’t tried it but I imagine it’s like any other dating…hit or miss. Might as well assume the best until you find out otherwise, you said it yourself, “if you actually make a legit page then people get in touch with you!” Probably, just like you, she made an honest page too, it’d be a waste of time and a disreputable site if most of the profiles were jokes, it probably would’ve been taken down already. Chances are she’s legit.

Have fun! :)

I’m thinking she’s for real cause you both are meeting up in 3 days. Catfish people date online for years without ever meeting ha. As for worrying about if she will look how she looks in her photos, you’ll see on wed. You’ll never know until you meet her right? haha
No matter what though, DON’T worry about any outcome. Whichever way it turns out have a fun date. Be content with whichever outcome that way you won’t be disappointed if it goes down hill. Just some thoughts ha @staylucky, let me know how it goes

I remember organising to meet a chick off the internet when I was 15 or 16 and walking up to her, seeing she was nothing like she said and walking straight past her haha. Luckily I had my sunglasses on so she didn’t have time to pick up on the fact that it was me.

I’m a little older now, so if there’s any disappointment I’ll just sit through it like a big boy!

Hmmm.. She seemed almost too normal for someone off the internet.

Going to assume she’s a serial killer who’s looking for organs to sell on the black market.

@staylucky, Hahaha. Everyone is ON the Internet and is normal. Gotta follow that logic.

Wait.. why would you want to meet a completely normal person?

@beyond, Fair. I guess I was just expecting her to be packing a dong or an extra eye or something.
