Who would be up for some of this?
i mean.. uh.. i have minutes to type up. yeah.
but i'm not, so...
that websote where your mates recommend their single friends? that might be better?
run by Sarah 'FOXY MOMMA' Beeny?
have minutes to type up. i mean. they're from a refuse meeting. it's very interesting.
sorry, i just have a feeling it would be full of:
a) atypical chick lit "heroines" - young, "sassy" marketing "execs" who, gosh and bother, just don't have time for "chasing men" in between their high profile meetings, long working hours and "cocktails with the girls".
b) drunks who can't talk to anyone otherwise - ie, me.
i wish to meet neither of these groups, which poses a slight problem :P
But I'm with someone! And I don't live in London! And I'm not desperate! LOL!
I can see from here!
you can only tell for sure that he ISN'T Jewish, not that he is...
would that be enough to impress a complete stranger in a few minutes? I don't intend saying anything.
drop your trousers and fall off your chair. It's a surefire winner.
is that what you're thinking.
Anyway, I wouldn't do it. Just to... weird. Or blind dates. In fact "dates" in general are pretty awful.
Why oh why is it so difficult to get together with the opposite sex? It should be the most natural thing in the world.
i went along with a few girl friends a couple of years back to a speed dating night. it was mad.
one of the girls i spent 3 mins talking to was "psychic" and about 15 seconds into the conversation started telling me all kinds of stuff about myself - where i grew up, my star sign, etc etc. was a bit disturbing. another one spend most of the time writing stuff down about the previous guy. another one asked me a quick-fire round of questions - things like "ketchup or brown sauce? chinese or indian? beer or wine?"
if you go, just make sure you have a few beers first - makes it all alot easier.
My mate got told yesterday at the funfair that she would marry someone with an 'M' in their name.
WOW! How specific!
went for drinks with the girls after, and i thought the things i got asked was bad... you should hear some of the guys lines.
one guy told this really long story about his puppy. about how he always takes his puppy for walks, but one day he lost his glasses and amazingly the puppy found them in a big pile of leaves! the dogs name was "bentley" aparently.
one dude just sat there and said "im meditating"
another guy asked "what pants dyou want me in?"
although having said that, quicker snogs have happened ;-)
I'd probably be interested in experiencing Indie Speeddating...
What's that? Everyone goes and stands awkwardly in the corner, and gives evils to those with more battered and 'authentic' Cons than them? There's an Hello Kitty! royal rumble, when twee little girls have to hair slide each other to death to fight for their floppy-haired love god? You're not allowed to enter unless you can name all the members of Melys? No meat-eaters allowed?
[or the windmill. one of the two]. i have seen flyers. i don't think it's particularly twee though. it's probably a bit like frog, but without the Â£10 cover charge and Â£6 drinks.
called indie speed dating at Nambucca, to see Tim Ten Yen, but I think only he had to do the dating bit.
Indie speed dating would be better than speed dating by age.
I thought he was doing the musical stuff between the dating?
He wants to be my myspace friend. Should I let him?
Maybe we could go speed dating together.
He's amazing! Yes you should let him be your friend! And then go and see him, and when he puts his hands in the air you have to wave back at him jubilantly.
Check out his video at www.timtenyen.com
shall we organise one?
they do it by profession too...
can you imagine a room full of single people speeddating from the marketing profession. jesus.
Isn't that what these boards are for? I'm trying to get Bamos to show me his...ABANDON REPLY
