the best part about speed dating:
it is not a sport for well adjusted, hot people who could date more but just tend not to for whatever reason. it’s more for people who are shy, isolated, and odd and who can’t get a date otherwise.
before we went, LOST said “it’s either going to be funny or just sad.” and in my typical tony robbins response, i was like: “think positive, it will be hilarious.”
LOST was right. There were a lot of chinos in the house. And hip-mounted cell phones. Need I say more?
Still, it was good practice for schmoozing. I talked with a bunch of weird guys, all kinds of types. I resolved that I am a damned good conversationalist. I managed to send each of them off feeling good about themselves after our 6 minute chats. Tony would be proud.
Also, I liked the venue. It’s close to my apartment … cool lounge and good music. I’d go back.
But most significantly, LOST and I had a fun night together. Six minutes with a bunch of innocuous dorks is definitely worth that.
