Speedy Gonzales

I really liked that song when I was a kid...

What does it have to do with this post? Well yesterday I went for a Speed Dating session, a first for me. I must admit, when on the way back from Batu Pahat to KL (an excellent place u know, wish it was my hometown),I was hoping that we wouldn't reach on time, so that I could head back home instead of to a unfamiliar cafe to attend a strange and nerve wrecking event. But friends being friends, they had to drive me straight to the venue and practically pushed me out of the car. Thanks guys, wouldn't have done it without u!

So I was there 5 minutes before 6pm and got to know a few girls who were there, most were there for the first time, like me...Then the organisers gave an introduction and away we went! I was nervous at first, but after a couple of minutes I got the hang of it. At the end of the 2.5 hours, 4/7 guys got a tick from me and I had the some of the funniest things said to me.

When I asked one guy which football team is his favourite, he said Liverpool. "But I support MU because Liverpool can't win!" How funny is that! And a 28 year old fella was commenting how upset he is cos' he can't find the right girl. I told him that he's still young, so it's ok...He was adament that it was too late for him, he said "After 30, u can get sick fast, and then if ur sick, ur children will get sick, so it's better to get married early!" Sounds like he wants a caretaker not a partner!Needless to say I ticked No for him.

All in all, it was an interesting experience. I got a number of a guy who ticked me as Yes. I am not sure where that will go, but I am open to meeting new friends for sure. Would I do it again? Maybe in a couple of months...(if it's free) *LOL*
