Am I a noble person? Not really. Have I ever volunteered? Not willingly. Has that all changed? Absolutely. A friend of mine wants to to volunteer with a knock off of Big Brothers, Big Sisters. Him, not being a confident man, invited me to come along. We met with the agent, who is an attractive brunette, who happens to be a year younger than me. The conversation quickly altered course from the program, to our (lack of) mutual friends, where we went to school, etc. She was very flirtatious, and sent me an email 10 minutes after the meeting. It was like my amigo wasn't even in the room. I immediately creeped her facebook, and judging by our lack of mutual friends, I have concluded she is a homebody. (Small city) Her profile is hidden, and her display pic is small, but shes with a guy (I'm presuming/hoping a father-figure... Too hard to tell). Her email was basically a "A pleasure meeting someone who has a big heart, and is willing to help out" all that crap... Like many full-time volunteers at these places, she's trying to get a teaching job. I have loads of connections with principals in the area, and have succeeded in getting friends interviews in the past... The question is - how do I respond to this email? I can't volunteer with this program, because they require a 6 month commitment, and I'll be leaving in 4'ish months. ... And honestly, I don't know if I really want to.
