how do you think about blind date? did you have terrible experience?
how do you think about blind date? did you have terrible experience?
我应该表明对象是: 大龄青年 呵呵
是嘛 这才几岁啊 就去相亲
Yeah...bad experience back in July. She said nothing. So I asked her questions. She answered in four word sentences. It wasn't lack of English skills, because she studied in Australia for a year. She just had poor social skills. I figured since she wasn't giving much information, I might as well talk about myself. She responded to everything I said with "cool".
Since then I have limited my contact with people I meet online to e-mails, MSN chatting and text messaging. If after awhile you seem to be cool, you can come meet me wherever I'm going next and we'll take it from there. I will probably be with friends, so don't expect my undivided attention.
In my experience, this is better. 1 on 1 meetings can be really uncomfortable. Group encounters tend to make people more relaxed and usually are fun...as opposed to one on one meetings, which mostly feel like work.
不用透露 我都 66了 当然老 哈哈哈
to Peter Baird: know what, if she was nice that would be lucky for you..my friends had more terrible experience! met the other who with bad manner , disgusting!
about group encounters, yes, mabye would be fun and relax, but its hard to find correct one,,,well, maybe not, who knows.
about 1 to 1 meeting..i think it will be better if you know her at first, at least know what she looks like. i hate to meet people you dont know his face .
never tried it before. a few of my friends tried it, they told me their terrible experiences. =(
It seems like the concept of a "blind date" has evaporated with the increased role that the Internet plays in our daily lives.
Prior to SNS sites, online dating portals and the dozens of additional technological tools that we've come to rely on, a blind date consisted of a mutual party connecting Person A with Person B as a result of perceived shared similar interests.
Prior to the date, the parties didn't communicate beforehand. (I think.)
In 2009, how do you define a "blind date?" Is it still blind if you've chatted for several hours on MSN? Sent a quiverful of tweets to their Twitter account... exchanged messages on this website?
When the two parties finally meet in "real life" after engaging in the aforementioned behavior, is the date still "blind," or do you feel as if you've already come to know them?
Just food for thought.
It's not like that anymore.
More and more close friends like to be the matchmaker, make appointment for thier single friends to meet, sometimes it works.
@Pete DeMola; yes, the definition of blind date is a little different,,so what...in fact, i didnt mean meet people who you have talked in internet already,,i mean "blind date", friends introduce you to someone, or group meeting party..but i prefer to meet friend who i talked already,,but only for friendship....now, im not sure...
Even don't dare to think about it!
shuierya mm, thats too funny, if i were you, id have dont that!
haha i like the name "blind date". I duno how you can go out with a guy/girl that you don't know before. I reckon it's quite weird to go to such date under parents' or friends' arrangement.
沒试过.. 我想一定挺好玩的... 兩个人你看著我, 我看著你..都不知道要说什么好... 哈哈....
如果让你看一个特别不顺眼的人 可一点都不好玩 哦
如果真的需要相亲 我觉得也不拒绝~~ 只要能遇见正确的人 嘿嘿
my wife is that we know each other through blind date, Erinshi is right, the matchmaker is very important.
A good method to find our love. I have no experience yet.
没经验 还怕 太害羞
ya,nowdays 相亲is different frm the traditional one,i think it is ok,and if the person is introduced by ur relatives or good friends that u can trust,why don't we try it. i never try it,but my cousin has tried it.it is good,and finally they get married.therefore,i think it is not bad.
Moderator, it's true, we have been married for 2 years. my classmate of senior high school is our matchmaker.
no experience but I expect . I think it is mysterious.
Hmm... This topic recalls some terrible memory I had...
I've had 2 blink dates, and they where all terribly unforgettable. One of the 2 girls i've met was the kind of 'topic terminator'. Our conversation was like:
ME: I always go xxx and ooo after work, have fun and relax, how about you?
She: go home...
ME: Yeah, that's fine. Do you like reading?
She: I rarely read.....
ME: How 'bout music? What kinda music do you like?
She: I don't listen to music much...
ME: O...K...... Oh, the last movie I watched was cool, blah blah blah...... Which actor or actress do you like?
She: I don't watch movies, it's boring...
ME: Umm.... how about games? Do you play computer games?
She: yes.... I've played XXX game.
ME: Oh! Cool! (Finally some topic) I was playing that too, we might have seen each other in game before! Blah Blah Blah........ When do you usually play that?
She: I've quit playing that game 3 years ago.....
ME: Oh, crap...... that's it......
I mean, for god sakes, can't you respond me with just a few more words or finding another topic? @@"
觉得很不错啊，每一次见面都是一种期待和想象，因为你不知道他会是什么有哪个的，或张什么样。 有一个遐想的空间，呵呵~ 虽然没有过，但有机会也想尝试下，体会再说。
damn it, i am gonna give a shot!
blind date is not dat bad tho, it depends on how 2 control it lor~ XD
it's good to have a blind date,but i'm not lucky enough!
i dont think so...
well, we will see
in china , usually only the girls aged near or over 30 would take the blind date unwillingly or willinglly, it is a feasible channel for girls or boys to search for their Mr.right or Ms right. but i just can not get used to that way untill now.
hate blind date, hate it hate it hate it!!!
blind date= long term job interview, and free meal is always welcome!
yeah! blind date just like interview. I always feel a little uncomfortable...
Maybe we'll organize a weliveinbeiing.com speed dating event.
.....!!! you could,,hehe,,and i will attend,,but i dont want to organize...i dislike blind date ..heihei
Hihi Pete, I think that's awesome, Hope I will be in BJ and if you need hand, I would like to be a part of it.
aha....there is coming a good idea... pete, do it!
Okay. If you guys are interested, then we'll do it.
I spoke with a speed dating agency recently, and they're open to the idea.
when? at where?
speed dating agency....hahaha....
more interesting now
but i think it have more advantages than disadvantage.s........
Just for fun ...
我来凑到100!!!! 哈哈 我的帖子100咯
You actually counted it? Congradulation
of course didnt count it...hehehehe
but the website showed itself :P
hmm, all the guys in my age i know, are married already
it's always better socializing with people, get to know a guy/gal first. go on group dates then start from there. i have nothing against blind dates or online dating though. but for me, it's cool to develop personal connection more than anything.
go on group dates then start from there, that sounds better and more helpful.
@Miranda: 若干年前我也是这么想的 !
I think if you find a girl/guy on the net and ask her/him for a blind date, that would be cool? if you hv a blind date, who pay for the bill?
in blind date, its better to share the bill.
well, i think my definition of 相亲 is different from wester definition of “blind date"，in china, 想亲 mean you meet without any connection before, not meet a internet friend.
:) Louisa, i didnt say i will do it!
I have never tried .... but in my opinion,that could be fun????
typical gemini :)
me no stalker for sure, just survived one (but she wasnt a gemini).
but what makes you i were a stalker?! never bothered anyone in my life.
i said typical gemini because geminis are always curious about unknown things and enthusiastic to try things out.
but i agree, it could be fun, it also may not, that's why it's called "blind" date, you'll never know.
