Is it also called BLIND DATE???
I have been doing a lot of "blind dating".. but not the one that you go thinking that you may meet the love of your life but rather a great friendship.
In many ways, some through a friend that has said: - I have this friend in Zurich you should call! ; or through the Google SPOOGLER group ( spouses of googlers) I have been setting up this "meetings". On my way to my latest one this week I ponder the similarities of these type of Blind dates and the "other ones"...
In both cases you want to make a good impression , so I found myself making sure that I arrived on time and was wearing something presentable. Nothing too trendy or way out there. Also not conservative either.
I tried to find out something about my "dates", you see, back in the date when I did the "other" type of blind dating ( Thank God not many) there was no Google and the Internet wasn't what is today so I couldn't just Google him and find out if he had been in jail for mass murder.
In the end, unlike my "real blind dates" I have met wonderful people so far and although I am not wondering weather it will last forever or when he will call again... I do hope that these early connections of my life in Switzerland are just the beginning of the friendships that I will build here!
Nice to meet you Julie, Aniko, Alice and Franziska! Hope to see you soon!
Ps: I did wear lip gloss!!!
