Of blind date




W: What do you think of that girl?
Me: Er... she's cute.
W: Well, she's single.
Me: Ok.
W: And you're single. She stays near your place.
*Alarms ringing* *Warning: RUN RUN RUN*
Me: No you're not doing this, woman!
W: Why not? Here's her number. Take it. Call her.
Me: ........

W is a colleague of mine, happily married with 2 kids, whom I've grown quite close to. I suppose many of you have gone through and experienced this kind of conversation one way or another. But aren't you just sick of it repeating again and again? I know I am.

Of course if my friend is setting up a blind for me with a guy, I'll probably go for it (Gosh aren't I desperate?!), but the date is a girl. I'm still not ready to come out yet, that's why my friends and colleagues still think that I'm straight. And setting up dates for me with the wrong gender! Grrr...... How do you politely decline such a thing? What is the socially acceptable way to refuse the date? And W has already tested the water by hinting to that girl about me. That poor girl probably expects me to call her soon. Drat.

On another note, my mom has been bugging me to go home for past few weeks. She's calling me every single day asking me when I'm coming home or have I bought the tickets. My answer was always 'soon'. Sigh.... guess I can't avoid it forever. Of course, whenever I go home, the question of my single-hood would come up. I just have to brace myself for the routine interrogations and prepare a well-versed answers.

Came across this. Thought it was damn funny. A straight guy's dilemma. LOL...

    1. Damn at least you still have time. One of my sisters was married. Another one engaged. Another 2 already in years of relationship. So that left me! Luckily I'm a guy, so she doesn't expect me to settle down so fast.

    1. I think I used that before. She will then asks, 'don't you have a lot of female colleagues? None of them right for you?'

      I'll just have to dodge it for as long as I can, then I'll have to think of something. Maybe I'll say I'm just emotionally barren, so I can't commit to a relationship. It's a congenital thing. lol...

  6. Haha... My standard reply was - I marry or u marry... I not kancheong why you kancheong! My life or your life?....

    After a while, they learn not to ask...

    :-)
