Blind date anyone?

I've reached a point in my life where my friends no longer have someone they can set me up with, but now have friends of friends finding me dates. We all know that 9 out of 10 blind dates fail and yet as a society we feel that it is our duty to find our "less fortunate" friends a soul mate. We are all guilty of this simple tactic.
I experienced a similar situation over the weekend. A friend of mine was chatting with his neighbor and in discussion found that she had a single brother. Never really meeting the guy and the neighbor never having met me still felt that it would be a spectacular idea for us to meet.
I keep looking for the sign on my forehead that reads, "still single..." Do I give off some aroma that screams out to people, "She needs help or she'll never get married!"
As always I give the benefit of the doubt... Maybe I will be the one person who finds their soul mate. Then comes the awkward moment of not knowing what to do on a blind date. Well you've got some really good options of dinner and bowling, dinner and adventure golf, and dinner and games with another couple you've never met.
Blind dates... you gotta love them!

At least the guys you used to date aren't setting you up on dates with their friends.
