A lot of people are indulging in blind dates of recent time. You meet someone on social media, you guyz get chatty and then hit it off, next thing you want to meet. You guyz fix a meeting point, and then gbam, it's a date, but isn't that called a blind date?
Yes pictures are indeed deceiving to the eyes. You saw something else in the picture but when you meet the person in real life you either get disappointed or impressed. I read about a guy who beat his blind date black and blue cos she looked nothing like what he saw in the picture she shared with him.
A course-mate of mine back then in school said she dodged from her blind date cos he looked nothing like what he described (there was no picture description). They actually got chatty after a wrong number incident, and guy man loved her voice so he called back and that was it. My babe was in love with the supposed tall, dark and handsome dude she always talked to on the phone. Their communication was restricted to just calls cos she didn't have a phone that browsed as at then.
So imagine her shock when he finally came to meet her in school, she saw him from afar after he described what he was putting on and the building where he was standing. She bolted and switched off her phone. According to her, he was short instead of tall and really dark, nothing about him fit into the description he initially gave her. She couldn't meet him so the only thought that came to her mind was to "run", and that she did.. How cowardly of her right. Lolz.
Some-people on the other hand are quite lucky to meet their prince charming through this means, while others like my course-mate aint. I think that it all depends on what you want. So you see whatever has an advantage also has a disadvantage, so blind date wisely and be careful of where you meet. Insist on meeting in an open place biko, to avoid stories that touch the bone-marrow. Remember, all that glitters aint gold.
Do you hav any experience? Do share.
