Saturday Night Fever

So I guess this is part where I tell you one of the reasons I am finding it so hard to find a group of people I can hang out with. I mean people our age, they don’t go to a coffee shop and just sit next to anyone they like (I tried it, verrrry awkward.) They go ‘out,’ to places with music, where you don’t have to talk, just dance. This struggles for two main reasons.

ONE: I am a very charismatic person. I have spent a long time in perfecting my personality; I follow all the rules, do some research, I am complimentary and I listen. However, if I don’t get to talk to people over the music what are they going to be able to judge me on?

TWO: Dancing. That is exactly what they will judge me on, and I cannot dance. Not at all. Not in the smallest sense of the world. I have tried, god I have tried. I can jump, I can step, I can sway, but I can’t really do them all together.
I have analyzed my lack of rhythm into some graphs, and you can see that each of my separate dance moves, they work well, and in rhythm. But for the life of me, I cannot get them to compound together to create a full dancing body.
Simply put, I can only dance in one dimension. That is why I think this Goth party might work at well for me, it is only in one dimension, jumping up and down. I better get practicing….

OHHHHH…. If only…

Preparing for Battle

So today is the day. I found a Speed Dating luncheon at a local cafe in the city, so this is where I am really going to and have a crack at meeting some new people.
I was looking online for tips and tricks, and while in my meandering, I came across a few major points of reference to try and get a proper conversations going….

Pay Attention to Your Appearance (goes without saying…)
Watch Your Body Language (smiles can make or break a date)
Don’t Be a Whiner (I am really a very positive person..)

Popular Questions to Prepare For:
* What are you most proud of in your life?
* Is religion important to you?
* What do you do for fun?
* Why did your last relationship end (Break-Up)?
* Do you want to get or have you ever been married?
* Do you want or do you have any children?
* If we got into an argument, how would we settle it?
* Where do you see yourself in five years?
* What do you do for work?
* Is sexual compatibility important to you?
* What do you look for in a (boy/girl)friend/spouse?

Some of these seem pretty daunting.
I did a lot of research and have decided that I can steer around a few answers that might make me look like a loser.
Loser Answer : Yeah I live by myself.
Winner Answer: I choose to live a really solitary life.

Loser Answer: Oh no, I have never had a girlfriend.
Winner Answer: When I meet the right girl, I’ll know. And that will be it for me.

Loser Answer: I have never had sex before.
Winner Answer: Intimacy is the most important thing to me.

I sound like a woman, I swear. But from what I’ve read, chicks dig that SNAG shit. I’m in for sure.

Today from 11:00am-1:00pm I will be speed dating a lucky few at Caffiene at Vault Cafe on Swanston St, Melbourne.

If any of my female readers are available, I’d love to chat. Come down for a coffee, I am pretty sure it is free to sign up.
