Sherwood park speed dating
Both of us are going with the nice jeans/button-up shirt plan. B: I have a cousin that moved out here, but most of my family is back in BC. I had only met her once, really what did I expect, for her to say “Oh ok actually let’s meet up again so I can discuss all of my issues with you, someone I’ve only met once”?
We roll into Red Square a few minutes early, as showing up late would not be a good way to start things off. It’s a good distance, close enough to visit but I don’t see them too often. Sigh…the worst thing is that I know better than this!!
B: You know, since I’ve left BC, when I go back there to visit, it kind of feels like going backwards in a way. Since I want to learn more, I send her an email asking her to help me out. Now at the end of the day it sounds like things wouldn’t work between us anyway, but the key thing I take from this is that I need to get my more edgy, flirty side out there as quickly as possible.
G: It’s so embarrassing, but I’ve never been to BC. Well I kind of figured this was happening, but still it’s too bad. Makes sense, and that first date certainly hurt things.
We also discuss a plan of using “voice memo” on our phones to record the conversations we have, so we can review them later. *ding ding* Girl #2 B: Hi I’m Bryan, how’s your night going? The beaches, the surfing, the West Coast Rainforests. I’m going to do a Scandinavian tour in the summer, I’ve been meaning to do that for awhile. So I am way too nice, and I think it actually comes across as a bit weird. Probably something like this: “I am sorry to hear you are having issues.
Next thing you know, it’s time to roll, so we head down to Red Square. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo, Trondheim, Iceland. I don’t know about this whole 4 minute thing, it’s way too fast, I don’t know. G: Do you have family out here, or are they back in BC? It also definitely comes across as needy, so really if I did have any remaining chance with her, I have now totally bombed it. Hopefully you sort them out, and if you do and want to meet up again then send me a text. ” Definitely nothing more than that, and perhaps something less.
Girl #1 B: It’s a lot more crowded than I expected B: I thought this was supposed to be 8 minutes per person, not 4 B: Have you done this before? G: About a week and a half in Greece and a couple in Italy. It kind of has an old-school feel, with a dark wooden interior.
We have big projects in the Middle East, I’d like to start up some plants. I’m in catalytic reforming, we make gasoline, in the refinery. B: I was in Chicago last year and it was a lot of fun, yeah it’s a good place. I went for a couple weeks in high school actually, we had a track and field…ah…trip, so that was pretty cool. I suggest we meet up next week, a suggestion which she says she is quite interested in.
This year though I’m planning on going to Scandinavia for the summer. I had a friend go there last year who said it was pretty awesome. When we get back to the parking lot, I walk her to her car with the plan of a hug to end things.
Bryan you are a sweetie and I think that you are a great guy! I could be wrong, but I think we are at different places in life. I decide that since I have never talked to her before, I had better use the richer communication channel of talking on the phone, rather than going with my default plan of texting.
The more honest you are with your answers, the more useful it will be for me, and I really would like to hear your unfiltered thoughts. I recall back to my Organizational Behaviour class and the section on rich vs lean levels of communication.
There are a lot of people already there, and predictably the girls are already sitting in groups at the tables, while the guys are all milling around in a somewhat awkward clump. This is where a black shirt definitely has the advantage over the bright blue one I have chosen for the night. We grab our name-tags and make semi-awkward chit-chat with our soon-to-be competition. B: I was out there about 3 years ago, yeah I went to Santorini and Athens and it was pretty cool. I also learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t, and gained some valuable dating experience. Saturday June 30, 2012 – Speed dating event #2 I decide to sign up for a “Speed Dating with Style” event, for Women 22-32 (men 25-35), held at Social Modern Pub. After the issue with being smelly last time, I decide to forgo shaving my armpits this time around, although I make sure they are decently trimmed.
There’s a wide demographic spread; some of them are significantly older than us and are dressed in suits and acting all serious, while others are more similar to us. G: B: It’s cool how a lot of the ruins and everything are right in the middle of the city. For clothing I go with my pink/white Zara shirt, the white side of my dress belt, dark jeans, pink socks and white Skechers.
