Business cards dating
–Here’s the deal, guys: You can read all the dating and relationship advice you can find – and there’s a lot of good stuff out there – but there’s just one key piece of advice I have to share. So here is a quick history of how I met and was asked out by some of the fellas in my past and whether it worked or whether it failed. We dated for eight months and split up on good terms. He came in the first weekend we’d opened a brand new location, and my friend Misti told me “that guy’s vibing you!
The concept was, in fact, quite similar to speed dating.
Speed dating provides the only benefit of a blind date (meeting someone new) with an easy getaway plan.
Every 90 seconds, you get to move on to someone new.
I avoided picking up the phone for any local number I didn’t recognize. He said I knew him as a customer (I worked in a men’s shop), but he didn’t want to reveal who he was. A few months later, I received a mailing tube with a bow on it at the store where I worked. I opened the tube, and it was the original movie poster for starring Katharine Hepburn. His voice seemed a little familiar, but by that time, I was already in a relationship with my husband – one that had started out fast and grown like wildfire. He just kept coming back to the store and hanging out for a few minutes, chatting with me and the women I worked with.
His approach creeped me out and I hated that I felt pressured to give him my digits. One day I received a note saying I had captured his attention during a conversation we’d recently had. He finally called me at the store a few months later, if I can remember correctly. Finally, one day, he said that if I wanted to see the new movie we’d been discussing (, it turns out), he’d love to tag along.
