But Sis, I really don’t need you fixing me up with anyone; I can find my own dates he said, but Brother this is not a date, she is just looking for a friend, someone to hang out with while she is in town, heck we can all get together and go out on a “double date” if you want to call it that, he laughed and agreed to meet her.
What do you think of a blind date situation, now I am not talking about someone who can’t see you but rather someone you have not met before you arrive on the date? What does she look like he asked, she is a very nice person, she is funny and has a good sense of humor, I even showed her pictures of you and she said that you are a nice looking man, OK but you still haven’t told me what she looks like, she just laughed and assured him that he would like her.
I have already told you that I don’t need for you to fix me up with anyone, I can find my own dates he again told his Sister, and again she said this is not a date, you are just meeting a friend of mine, she is moving out of town before long and has no friends here, I suggested that we all get together so we could all get out of the house and have a good time, no pressure Brother I am not trying to fix you up.
Aren’t friends of the opposite sex you go out with, people whom you really like but don’t want to date, and do these friends have to be your type to hang out with them? Now Sis you know my type, and I want to know is she my type? She laughed, what does it matter if she is your type if this is not a date.
They all went out together and had a big meal, a lot of laughs, and the promise to do this again real soon, sometimes that promise is never kept and other times a good friendship is made if only for a short time, you know the old saying about two ships that pass in the night, sometimes they just pass and wave a lantern at one another, other times they pass without ever seeing each other, and on rare occasions they run into each other head on.
Looking back I remember a good friend who I dated once, we ended up married and I suppose you can say we were the two ships that ran into each other head on, we were never set up on a blind date and the blind date I have talked about here is not our story, but I do know the ending of this one already, we may go out a time or two more with them, and one day when they are living on opposite ends of the country they will wave their lanterns so to say and remember a few laughs and good times they shared with Cindy and I back then.
