    Have you been on one? How did it turn out?

    Did you go on it and then think what have I got myself into?

    A buddy I've known since we were about six or so texted me tonight and asked what I was up to this weekend.

    He said his fiancé has a friend and was wondering if I wanted to meet her. He said we all can go out as a group and me and her can see what happens.

    I said sure why not, now I'm kinda thinking I'm not sure about this......

    In a sense I guess I have nothing to lose and possibly something to gain.

    It was a crash and burn. I get lined up with this girl who didn't know it was a date. She thought it was going to be a girls night out.

    Turns out her fiancé had just knocked up her sister or cousin. All three girls took out their anger on me and I knew nothing of the situation. Never again. I got set up a few more times but I always met the girl first after that.

    What appeals to people, both male and female, is so nuanced that blind dates seldom work out.

    I'm not a frequent poster on this forum as the other responders are but I have some experience in this matter. If you are in the market for a relationship, why not a blind date? What's the worst that could happen? You spend an uncomfortable evening and make the best of it. Just conduct yourself as a gentleman and maybe you get a personal recommendation and a referral to someone else you might like. The upside is that you actually meet someone who you are interested in. No risk equals no reward.

    No profile on what she looks like from your buddy? Sounds like you are getting set up with a "Cleveland Brown" May have a nice uniform but the helmets are ugly.

    Get her number and talk to her first.

    Met my wife of 14 years through the personals. Kind of a blind date but it's been great this far.

    All the Best,

    Take a look at any dating website and you will go through piles of women and pick out one or two that appeal to you. This is pretty much your chance with a blind date and somebody you have never seen before. Odds are against you but if you have nothing else to do and don't have your hopes too high go for it. I would not go into it with high hopes. I've done it when I was younger. Once a buddie set me up. He wanted this girl and her friend was always tagging along so he brought me along. Well both of them were into him and it was an awkward night. I've had others I've met, like one at a restaurant. She bumped into a guy she knew at the bar, and as I was waiting for them to call my table, she takes off with this guy and leaves. I stayed and had dinner anyway, by myself. I really didn't care, but I could go on with a few more stories like that. I prefer to see who I'm going to go out with and talk to them a bit first.

    I'd do it.

    Find out if they are trying to help you or if they are trying to help her. I learned that the hard way. Had an attractive female friend set me up one time. I figured she was setting me up with someone that she would likely hang out with (athletic, outgoing, etc). The girl I met was 5'2" and probably 220lbs (I'm 6'3" and 195lbs). She didn't even have a pleasant personality, whiny with a victim mentality. Ughh!

    never been on one, cuz i never had any problems getting women on my own. i always had a girl when i wanted one.
    i had some friends that were GREAT guys, but girls were like quantum physics to them. they went on blind dates regularly. they never seemed to workout. at best they'd date a few weeks and then move on.
    one guy was always blind dating because he never wanted to commit to a girlfriend. he'd always complain that he might be missing out on something better. now he's 27, still single, and desperately wishing he knew something about having a comitted relationship.
    anyway, just trying to say that blind dates are usually worthless for real relationships. not impossible, but not as common or as successful as you finding a woman yourself. you know what you like and what you want. so be your own matchmaker.

    OK, I'll play. . .


    As long as you have the "equipment" to match. :rofl::rofl:


    Funny story - I was flipping channels and TLC was doing that Weird Sex show or whatever.

    The guy with the biggest hoo-ha in the world was on it. The guy was NOTHING to look at and overweight. And gets girls by the dozens. LOL So you CAN look like a mule and get the wimminz.

    Only twice. First when I was 16 and it was a disaster. Recently, it lasted a week and a half. :supergrin:
