Yesterday a friend was telling me about her current crushes and much to my chagrin I didn’t have one to speak of. I tried to make one up but it didn’t feel authentic as I rarely have the opportunity to see the person so basically I am making my crush up based on memories from weeks ago. But today I think I have finally found a crush and I am proud to share him with you. Here he is:
Mmm Mmm good.
So as you all know I signed myself up for Crazy Blind Date, a site that matches people up based on arbitrary questions and basics of dating requirements and texts you on the day of your date to tell you where to meet your boy–or girl–wonder. It’s been about a week now since I signed up and much to my surprise, I got an e-mail yesterday saying they don’t have a date for me. Well, I guess I wasn’t that surprised because I was told earlier on that having too many restrictions would ensure I didn’t get a date. But what gives?
You see, like many women of my stature, I have standards and I don’t want to call them high for fear of sounding like a witch, but I guess you call a spade a spade. But at the most basic level that Crazy Blind Date matches people up, they consider my standards too high to get a date on their clock.
I remember when I first encountered this problem. It was when they were asking me the requirements of my ideal date, so I was honest and said they need to above a certain height, be a certain ethnicity, be a Christian and maybe one other selection which I don’t remember now. Somehow they consider my having 3-4 basic requirements of a man too restrictive. Gee, had they given me even more questions to answer they might have just kicked me off the site completely for being insane. So who exactly will this system work for?
Stay tuned folks…
One of my favorite songs from the artist formerly known as Common Sense is “Questions.” It is off of “Like Water For Chocolate.” I am pretty inquisitive person so I love the concept of questions–in songs or in real life.
This morning, as I was peaking around on a upcoming social networking site and a member posted the following as part of his profile:
5 Questions Most Feared By Men:
1. What are you thinking about?
2. Do you love me?
3. Do I look fat in this?
4. Do you think she is prettier than me?
5. What would you do if I died?
I laughed for a while, then I pondered and then I agreed because I know these are the questions that guys don’t like considering I’ve asked at least one of them at one point in my life–I’ll never tell which one. But then I wondered, “What are the five questions most feared by women?” I’ve been drawing a blank ever since and feel like I am losing a grip on my womanhood–not really on the latter. I pondered it with another colleague who came up with these:
- Is it true you pick guys based on personality vs. looks?
- How many people did you sleep with?
- Are you still a virgin?
- Do you think that guy is hotter than me?
- Am I your one true love?
- Were you checking that guy out?
- Why did you break up with your first boyfriend?
Honestly I am not stoked by any of these questions and would answer them all truthfully and without hesitation. So I am searching for those heart-wrenching questions. I am a woman and I can’t even figure them out. The one that I did come up with was:
1. Are you still in love or do you think about your ex?
So what do you think the question are? Do share.
