Blind dates are always interesting because you never know what the person is going to be like until you actually spend time with them and communicate. A couple years ago I got to have my first experience with one. It all started where I used to work, a lady that I worked with always talked about her daughter and how I should go on a date with her. She said her daughter’s name was Kelli and that she was smart but a little lazy, and naturally said she was pretty like every other mother would. So one day I finally agreed to take her number so that we could start out texting and then possibly set up a date.
I learned a lot about Kelli in just a couple weeks of texting. We talked about everything from childhood memories to plans for the future. She told me her favorite actress was Betty White, which I found humorous, her hero is her mother, her favorite TV show was “Vampire Diaries”, and if she could be any actor or actress on a TV show, she would be Lillie from “How I Met Your Mother. ” Those were just a few of the things we talked about in our weeks of texting. Finally, we set up a date to go to dinner and a movie. The day of the date comes and that night she pulls up to my house to pick me up.
I get in the car and she is listening to pitch perfect on the radio, I asked her what she was craving to eat and she said authentic Mexican food, which I was perfectly fine with. We went to a Mexican restaurant, talked some more about random stuff , like how she went to Disney Land when she was a kid, her favorite movie of all time was A Walk To Remember, and what makes her happy when she’s sad. I even asked her if someone offered her a million dollars for one night of sex, would she accept it, but she didn’t reply.
When then got on the topic of the scariest movie she had ever seen, obviously we had to go top that so she paid for our meals and we left for the movie theater. We arrived at the movie theater, found the scariest movie playing, she paid for our tickets and we went in. After the movie, she drove me home. We texted for a while after that night, but never went on another date. I guess we just weren’t that into each other, but I enjoyed the experience with my first blind date even though I’ll probably never go on another one.
