Nope I would never go for a blind Date as you just never know, no matter how much the Person is known by the Person who is trying to arrange it. And like you I am actually shy when it comes to meeting Strangers and very Scared of Strangers.
i dont really like blind date...it's just too weird and uncomfortable. i will not want to be caught in one, imagine having dinner with a stranger and being shy around each other...urgh! i cant stand the thought of it!
