I just returned from one of those speed dating things, and what a blast! I figured I'd let you all know about it, since it's too much info for facebook or twitter, and I need to inform people about the personal details of my life. Obviously I can't remember everything about everyone, but here's what I remember:
Caramela - This was the second girl I talked with. She was quite attractive, out of my league really. That actually made me less nervous though, cause I figured: well I have no shot, so just be yourself and treat it like you're just chatting with a friend or something. Apparently she just moved here from ABQ, which is why she was at the event. I think she said she was a doctoral student at Pitt. Or Carnegie Mellon? No, probably Pitt. Anyway, she was in Chemistry, so I said "I'm way out of my element here" and she laughed, which made me feel better, because as soon as I made the joke I had one of those feelings when you want to crawl under a rock. Anyway, that's what I remember about her.
Stacey - There were a few girls in between, and then Stacey. Not sure what her story was exactly as she seemed very cryptic. She kept checking her watch, so she must have had to go somewhere soon after the dating thing or something. Everything I asked her she would just reply with monosyllabic answers. "Yes... No... Whatever." I'm not even sure what went wrong. Finally our time was up and she went on to the next guy, who she seemed to not be as cryptic with, because she was giggling and flirting and whatnot. Strange bird.
Tara - Well next was Tara, and what a bunch of energy! She was asking me a hundred questions a minute: what school did I go to, what hood I grew up in, the why, the who what, the when and where and the how. Honestly, she kept asking till I was grabbing my hair and I'm tearing it out. I was certainly glad when that was over!
Monika - So one of the last girls was Monika. I think I might actually go out on a date with her. She had fiery red hair, big green eyes, glasses... in a word, everything a guy could want in a girl! So I got her number and I'm definitely going to ask her out, maybe this weekend. Hope things go well, cross your fingers for me! I will report back if I have any problems, though I don't think I will...
