Speed dating was fun. Although I have to admit it did leave my head swirling: Fourteen guys, eight minutes each – no break in between. The pace was too fast for me to learn if my body thought any of them would be nice to hang around with. I wanted to spend a little time sitting quietly and looking into their eyes, but no time for that.
Outcome? My mind is interested in spending more time with six of the dates. Now I wait to see if anyone is interested in a second date with me. I wouldn’t be too surprised if I strike out since, truth be known, the event was for ages 32 to 49 and I am a couple of years out of that range.
How good were my matches? Well, I was quite surprised to learn that one person had just finished a ten day Vipassana retreat and another spends about two hours a day with meditation and pranayama. There was also a guy that owns a martial arts studio and another was a mental health counselor. Hey, maybe I am mainstream after all. Plenty of matches.
Can hardly wait for the next one. September 12. This time I’m in the age range legitimately: 42 to 59.
PS: Three matches have indicated interest in a second date!
