Can’t a Girl Have Standards?

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…



  1. Darn it – I was so looking forward to finding out about your Crazy Blind Date! I heard about this about a week ago, but it’s not live in my city. Then I stumbled upon your post about signing up, and I couldn’t wait to hear more! Maybe, since it’s fairly new, they just don’t have a wide variety of people yet? Here’s hoping…

  2. Well, lets hope that something comes through tomorrow otherwise I fear that I will have to do as I have done which is wait to be sought, But I like to believe that I am a co-creator with God. You know the adage that God helps those who help themselves…Thanks for reading!

  3. I’m doing Crazy Blind Date is SF, and I, unlike you loosened my restrictions so that I might get a date. I’ve had two so far, which I’ve written about on my blog at

    It seems to me that, so far anyway, the CBD dating pool is pretty much the same as everyone on the other free dating sites in the area… but hopefully–as I do like the concept–it will pick up more people as it moves along.

    If nothing else, I have one new friend, and one guy who probably never wants to see me again. And plenty of hilarity.
