Who's up for a little adventure?

So if you've been paying any attention at all, you know that I'm sort of ballsy.

Some of you may be familiar with Mason Stanley, a blogger who writes an advice-type blog and also a blog about his personal experiences in dating, which is a lot like A Date In The Life... A boy after my own heart, right? I know of him because he's commented on some of his postings, and put me in his blogroll.

The other day he emailed me a question about a post he was writing, and after a few emails were exchanged I asked, just out of curiosity, whereabouts he lives. It could have been anywhere in the United States, so you can imagine I was a little surprised when I found that he lives less than 5 minutes from me. What are the chances, right?

It seemed all too appropriate to go on a date, so that we could each write about our perspectives from the guy and the girl standpoint. Right? All for the sake of our readers, of course. (Insert winking face.... haha)

We decided, just for the sake of adventure, to go on a legit blind date; no exchange of pictures, no myspace/facebook... not even real names, since we both have aliases. So as of now, all we know about each other is that we are both 23, we live in the same place, and that we hang out at all of the same bars. (Again, weird, right?) It's almost hard to believe that we haven't met already. (Sidenote: Arrgh... what if we have??)

I'm not sure if I'm going to be meeting up with him and his friends tonight (out of sheer impatience for waiting around to find out who this guy is), or if we're going to go on a "real date" at some point in the near future, but I can assure you that either way, you'll be the first to know all about it.

Wish me luck!

And on that note, isn't it funny that today's Single-ish blog post on is about the author, Ryan, and a friend of another blogger, being set up on a blind date through a blog? And how the girl is going to write a post afterwards on her perspective of it? Hmm.

4 people had something to say:

I went on a date with one of my SD interviews like that... actually, turned out to be great because we could talk expectations a lot more freely and less nervousness in general. If i don't look as good as my pictures- great! he hasn't seen them yet.

Good luck on your date.

The date: He won't be dressed to your standards nor will you find him physically attractive. Boring chit-chat will ensure as you eat, he may be slightly funny, but it doesn't matter because you've already decided you aren't going to sleep with him, or date him again. The entire time you will be trying to take mental notes about what hi-lights you will right about because it's such a boring date, so you just decide to make some up later. You just realize you zoned out while he asked you a question, you say, "oh, you're so funny" and it turns out that's an appropriate response. The dinners over, he pays (of course, right?), you go out for drinks (goat hill because it's just so classy, right?), he keeps feeding them to you, you get tipsy, get a little sad and you don't know why (not letting it show of course), realize you don't want to go home alone, so you go back to his place, make out a bit (of course you don't have sex), then wait for an insignificant thing to go wrong and bounce. You realize he probably isn't really benefiting your blog enough with his reader carry over so you decide to write a scathing review, this upsets him because most of what you said is untrue, but oh well, at least he's not some stranger on the internet that knows all this personal information about you, right?

This is something I could get into.

Was I right? I know I was. Either that, or it turns out you went to high school with him and had a crush on him in 9th grade English and now it's like so serendipitous, right? Run his name through, I bet you'll find something.

Oh, I almost forgot... you go girl!
