Blind Date Wednesday

This week's Wild Wednesday is courtesy of Martin from The Green Light at the End of the Dock.

So, I’m single – and hating it, although I am having quite a bit of fun…

Being single in a world of “couple-friends” is not great, and they all seem to have decided that I need some help – so some of them have started setting me up on blind dates. Some good, Some bad, and Most Ugly.

What strikes me though is the spirit in which it is done – and that’s today’s challenge. Set a friend up who’s been single too long, bring soul mates together – but that’s not necessarily where it stops. A blind date can be giving clothes to charity, helping at a soup kitchen, volunteering at an old age home, helping a colleague who’s just not coping, or leaving an extra big tip for your really cute waiter… the list is wide as your imagination.

Often you may not see the recipient, but you’ll know that in that moment you’ve made that person’s day – and that is, after all, the spirit of a blind date…

Damn - I did this about 2 weeks ago and had a spectacular success. I invited 4 of my single friends, McBrad invited 4 of his friends and we sat back and let nature take its course. We now have one fledgling romance happening! I was very chuffed at our success! Will be doing this more!

PS why is it that as soon as you're in a relationship, you want everyone else to be too? I used to curse my "married" friends who kept setting me up with all and sundry, but now that I'm in a relationship, I'm turning into Mr Matchmaker!!! Eeek!
