He said that my face was in the shadows so he moved his chair closer to me. #26 told me that the difference between LA and NY is that in NY people have dinner parties at home. I smile but he lied to me because he doesn’t fall down dead.
He told me he’s an excellent cook and that he cooks vegan…I zone out at vegan.
He is an engineer working on blah de blah blah aircraft. I said, #26, I think you should have a dinner party.
He said blah de blah blah blah French military blah blah de blah blah. He continued on with blah de blah blah blah numbers blah blah. Blah de blah mechanics blah blah science blah blah. He gasped, “You are stunning in this light.” I told him I am stunning in every type of light. People in LA don’t have dinner parties and oh how he wished they would. As soon as he took his seat he asked how old I was, I looked much younger than the other women at the event.
When Hurrydate emailed and informed me that my last chance at love was quickly approaching (i.e.
registration for their next event was closing), I believed them and signed up for their 30-41 demographic while in the back seat of a friend’s car. # 21 – #21 is no stranger to the speed-dating circuit. He told me that speed-dating isn’t quite as popular as it was five years ago.
The evening of my last chance arrived and when I saw my prospects, I ran to the bar for a beer. The bartender gave me a beer that was as big as my head. Five years ago, it was pretty hot and intense and a great scene.
#21 looked around the room and sighed, “It’s no longer that great scene.” #21 told me the importance of taking good notes.
“It’s very important to take your time with the notes. I don’t remember much about him because I failed my mentor, #21, and didn’t take good notes. Sometimes, even if someone has paved the way for you, you have to learn your own lessons.
You will need to use those notes later to determine who you would like to match with. For example, I am #21.” I thanked him for sharing his life lessons with me.
#21 then asked me where I was from but our five minutes had come to an end so we shook hands and wished each other the best of luck.
#26 tells me that it’s important to take good notes.
