49 To Go...

I'm rather frustrated.

I know I've said this before, but I had no idea how hard it would be to find 52 people. I honestly thought that my friends would know people, and word would spread, and if I had to I'd find a few guys myself through okcupid or eHarmony.

What's actually happened, though, is that I've been on three dates. And I don't know what's next. I've tapped all of my resources - I've been bugging my friends for weeks. Many of them have shared this with THEIR friends. I've done eHarmony, and okcupid, and even tried Craigslist against my better judgment (and immediately remembered why I was trying to avoid going that route). I don't know what else to do!

I'm supposedly going on a double date with one of my friends, but there aren't any concrete plans for that. There was a guy in Austin who was going to do a Skype date with me, but he disappeared. So did a guy in Rochester that I was supposed to meet...Last week? I keep thinking that I have people lined up, and then for whatever reason, they keep falling through.

I was talking to one of my friends last week who said that he and his wife had brainstormed people with whom to set me up, but that he couldn't think of anyone that was "good enough for me." Here's my message to you, friends:  I don't care!!! I mean, don't set me up with a serial killer or anything, but please don't think too much about weeding people out. It would be great to go on dates with 52 people that you actually think might be right for me. But that's not going to happen. So just set me up.

In the meantime, any advice on how to get 49 more dates this year? What haven't I considered yet?


  1. Speed dating? Does that count?

  2. Hello keekers - Yes, I would be perfectly fine with speed dating! It sounds kind of fun, actually. The problem is that I would never want to do that alone, and all of my friends are in serious relationships. What to do?

  3. Oh gosh, I'd go speed dating with you! Seriously. Yes, I have a boyfriend, and yes, I am 99% positive that he wouldn't care if I did this with you.
