I was just reminded of a blind date that I went on once in college and I must say that it was the worst date that I was ever on. The guy was the total opposite of what I would have picked out for me to date and he turned out to be a jerk. He took me to a restuarant and we left because his mom and dad where there. Then he took me to Red Lobster and I hated seafood at the time. Then he asked me to go to a movie and I said I really didn't want to, then we progressed to the movie theatre. It was the worst date ever and I was glad when it was over. How about you did you ever go on a blind date and how did it go?

I love to chat and make friends online and would love to meet them in real life too. But it often happens that i find it more easy to express myself and talk comfortable online with friends rather than talking face to face. It takes me time initially to get versed with the situation but then i feel comfortable talking face to face as well. I have had some good experiences in meeting some of my online friends rather call it blind dates. I have met 4 online friends in real life, the first one was a very bitter experience. I was too shy to open up. And moreover the girl came over with 3 of her friends. So could you imagine my situation? a guy among 4 girls. i went almost speechless. The second time was a better experience but it almost ended up with the girl doing most of the talking. But i am still in touch with this girl and i feel comfortable tlaking to her on phone.Rest of the times, i will say it went better with time. I do find it diffcult to act the same way as i use to do while chatting online, but i try to improve the relationship as it progresses. But i am hopefully looking to meet more of my online friends.

I am not sure that I would want to meet people that I have met online as that can be a dangerous situation. I hope that you are careful when you do this.

You are welcome. It can be dangerous even for a guy. Girls can be just as bad as boys. I know several girls who would scare me if I didn't know them.

I also went to a blid date when i was still in college.And things did not work out too.We were opposites,he is the "anti-social" type (which made me wonder why he even agreed to go to a bind date).He hates crowded places,me,i hate private or non-crowded places.Well,i would nnot mind going to a private place if he was interesting,but,geez,the man was so boring.and mind you i had to split the bill with him because he did not bring enough money.I ended up the date early.And i did not entertain his calls and text messages anymore. Since then,i never went to blind dates anymore.

I understand totally! I would never go on one again after my first one either. I thought that he would never leave.
