blind date

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
so my female friend thought it'd be hilarious to set me up for a blind date. half joke half serious. and its happening pretty soon. what are the most popular outcomes of blind dates, generally?

hypothetical scenario, if i think it goes well, how do i continue with it? "this has been fun, let's do it again some time?" but what if she saw it as a joke to begin with?

do you see it as a joke to begin with? its a chance to meet someone new, take it as that i would say. And yeah if things roll smooth try to do a follow up date.

If you have a good time and she has a good time then who cares if one or both of you saw it as a joke to begin with?

I think this is best. There's much less pressure in this situtation.

Because people don't like using their heads.

My advice is not to say "wow, for a joke date, you actually seem cool", or "usually with blind dates I expect the worst" or "when my friends said blind date, I thought you would be a complete charity case"

Honestly, I wouldn't worry as much about what to do if it goes well. Arrange for another meet-up or hang out all together for drinks with the friend that hooked you up.

The tough part is, how do you finish the date and what do you say if things don't go right? That's the potentially awkward part.

just lay the pipe and ask questions later.

My wife and I met on a blind date. That was 1981.

You should both be very lighthearted about it and think of it more as a fun night out with possibilities than a, duh duh duh, date. No expectations that way you aren't disappointed and perhaps are surprised. At the end you will probably end it on a hug regardless unless something extraordinary happens. I think you will know at the end if you both mutually dig each other. You don't want to push something at the end if you don't think she is equally enthused. You could just make a lighthearted comment like, I didn't know how this would be, being my first blind date and all, but I had fun..blah blah you know. Just be smooth and end it positive.

i can make a guess how majority of SF says they'd like to 'finish' the date


Also, exaggerate and lie, tell them what they wanna hear

that's funny - that is actually what i WOULD personally say if things went well (in a joking manner). people naturally expect the worst on a blind date. go in with an open mind and a sense of humor and keep things nice and light. zero pressure - i never have issues with blind dates or first dates. it gets complicated when you actually see them a few times and develop feelings (best reserved for another thread)
