Dating: Swan Dive or Belly Flop?
MerryKay really wanted to fall in love again.
She signed up for Plenty of Fish, OKCupid and Craigslist Singles. No Luck: Zip, zero, nada. She said she had been kissing a lot of frogs and wanteded to meet her Prince Charming.
She made the big mistake of hiring a so-called Matchmaker and went on three dates with totally incompatible men in three months and lost the $3000 she paid upfront.
Tired of failure, she decided to try a new tact. She signed up for Speed Dating at a downtown hotel. Like a Girl Scout, Prepared, she had five questions to ask the men across the table:
1. Tell me about your best friend.
2. Tell me about you very worst job.
3. What was your very first car?
4. What was your best job?
5. Tell me about your family and where you grew up.
One guy said she sounded like a cop, another laughed at her and told her to “Relax.” The third guy got up and walked away. Defeated and dejected she crumpled the list and just smiled when the next man sat down. He took out his list of questions and interviewed her.
She had good answers. He was lost and adrift after he posed the queries and just sat there looking at his hands…
She hurried away from Speed Dating. Never to return. Next!
