Taking care of the quantity...
Hey peeps, brunette babe here. I may have had a glass more of champagne than I should have tonight so forgive me for any typos or unnecessary rambling...
I've just come home from a night of speed dating. It wasn't my intention tonight to sit down with 8 different men and chat for 8 minutes with each of them - actually I was rather looking forward to a night on the couch with Ugly Betty and then early to bed (I'm tired from the weekend, which I'll have to tell you about another time).
But, I was driving home tonight and at 6.08pm I got a call from Fast Impressions, the company I went speed dating with last year (after which I was designated an elite single gal by them for getting the majority's vote). They were running an event tonight and were short a woman or two (or three, as it turned out) and asked me if I would go - for free.
I couldn't think of a good reason not to go (for free!), and so I said yes. Which meant I had precisely 42 minutes to get home, get ready, and then hit the road again.
Anyway, I went, and I'll tell you more about it another time, but for now it's late and I thought I'd just quickly post my predictions regarding matches. I'm having more faith in my instincts these days (since I so accurately predicted Finlay's affections going off the boil) so I'm interested to see if I can pick what will happen.
Out of the eight men there tonight, there were four I said yes to - if they also said yes I'll get a message tomorrow with their details.
Bachelor #1: a sweet guy, very pleasant and with nice manners. (Possibly lacking a little oomph, but not a definite no.) I predict he will say yes
Bachelor #2: a quirky, creative, slightly ginger guy working in the film industry. I predict he'll say yes - we had an interesting conversation in our 8 minutes and seemed to connect.
Bachelor #3: best looking guy of the bunch, and quite interesting to boot. I hope he'll say yes - but I'm not sure. Our conversation showed potential but ultimately was a tad stilted. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that he'll say yes, but of all the bachelors, he's the one I'm least sure of.
Like I said, I hope so - he went with a female friend to this night and afterwards I walked past them having a drink at another bar. I joined them for a cocktail and I had fun talking to #3. We'll see...
Bachelor #4: I kind of regret saying yes to him. He was nice enough but was a little too obvious about talking about his yacht, and his company and how he started it for lifestyle reasons (so he could have time to spend with his kids - which he doesn't have yet). Nice, but tried a little too hard to impress. I think he'll say yes to me though.
So, arrogant, huh? I think every guy that I was interested in will also be interested in me. That's just asking for a fall, really.
But we shall see...
