Craig's List

A former co-worker of mine met her husband on Craig's List. She was 30, had recently moved to New York, hadn't met anyone great and heard some friends had been meeting really nice guys...on Craig's List. So she posted an ad, a male 30 something posted an ad, and well, the rest is history. History meaning they got married and now have a baby and a house in Connecticut. Of course it could have gone the other way, like the girl who was killed just trying to buy a mattress. Sorry, just trying to show both ends of the spectrum here.

All this being said, I have a date tomorrow! With someone from Craig's List. Stop. Let me clarify. When I asked my co-workers if they had any friends they could set me up with, one brought up the previously mentioned co-worker and her dating success on Craig's List. "Look how well she did? A lawyer and a house in CT? Let me find someone for you and just give it a shot."

For anyone reading this that knows me, you know my motto: no judgement. Sike! I judge as a hobby. So when my co-worker forwarded the email chain she had been having with Dan*, a 25 year old lawyer, I could not help but immediately think: tool. "You are getting drinks Thursday. And hes cute! I have a good feeling about this" she said.

"I have a 'watch your drink' feeling about this," my other co-worker joked. I was torn. Yet, after facebook stalking all 224 pictures of him, I decided he was cute and it would at least be entertaining! Details to come Friday...

Hey do you have an exit strategy? I know you talked about this last week with MW, but if you need me tonight, you can always text me for a bailout.

I'm going to be really annoying and text funny/obscene things all night to embarrass you on your date. Remember, if he orders a smirnoff ice you have to leave immediately

It's a bagel crusade! Also - if you like the guy when do you plan on telling him you're dishing your dates details on the internet??
