I can read in your mind.
Really. I will show you…
For instance, I know that you have already said that. At least once…
“ Do blind dates or singles meetings really work?”
I will tell you something that could change your life forever. Something that will your point of view about this kind of evening.
You know what? Even better… To make my point, I will share with you a story that happened last week to one of my good friend, Angela (I always call her Angie).
So he’s Angie, calling me, just to know how I am. Yes it’s been a month we have talk… I ask her what she’s doing.
She tells me that she’s invited to a party organized by a very friendly guy named Karim…
“Do you know him, Jo”
“Yeah, I say. It’s the guy who throws parties for single men and women, right? Heard that those parties are like crazy!”
“Hum… she mumbles. Anyway, I don’t want to go”
At first, I’m surprised. But then, I start to understand (you will too soon).
“I don’t believe this kind of evening works“, she says
I nodded. (yeah… like if Angie can see me… we’re on the phone, dude)
“ I know what you mean, I say. But maybe there’s something else is bothering you.”
After a short silence, Angie answers: “Well, I know I’m single and it’s supposed to be a singles party event. But nobody I know will be there. I mean, I don’t want to be there standing all by myself with a stupid bloody Caesar in my hand…”
Aha… So that’s the real problem…
“ Angie, do you remember what Willow said about parties?”
Her voice is a bit shaky. I’m pretty sure she has no idea where I’m going to. To tell the truth, I’m not sure either!
“You mean Willow from Buffy the vampire slayer?”
“Yes. When she says:
“I know I’ve been sort of a party poop lately. So I said to myself, Self, it’s time to shake and shimmy it off”.
Willow- Buffy the vampire slayer
Angie laughs. She just had the scene played in her head: Willow with a light beer in her hand…
Buffy is our all time favorite TV show.
“O.K… I`ll go, she finally says.”

A spectacular show of lights. Red, blue, yellow. House music so loud that it shakes your bones.
People are dancing, yelling, having fun on the dance floor. The middle of the big room is normally reserved for conferences and rallies. But not this day. There’s a big party going on.
After the event, Angie tells me that this party was a huge success… With the description she gives me, I have no problems to believe her!
“So you stayed till the end, right?“, I ask.
“Of course”, she replies, smiling”
“Have you met someone?”
“Well… yes, and no… I mean, 5 minutes after I got in the room, I heard somebody calling me (But I wasn’t sure with all the noise)… Then I saw Cynthia waving her hand. She’s a colleague in my office. She was with a friend…”
Suddenly, Angie starts to laugh, jumping and clapping her hands.
“Jo, something happened in the party. Sooo funny. I have to tell you!”
I smile. “ Really? Well, talk to me, sister.”
So, here’s the story: Cynthia was in a very bad mood. In fact, maybe she just wanted to broaden her audience, so she can whine even more about the office, her job, men…. No doubt, she just had a very rough week; Blame the universe and moaning was in her program this week end. Not having fun, dance and drinking alcohol…
Angela was talking to Cynthia’s friend when a short man with a warm smile came by.
“Hey, Karim, said Angie”.
Karim, a very sweet man, was the host of the evening.
“ Hey Angie. Hi, Cynthia. Having fun, he asked?”
Cynthia shoot her head.
“Listen Karim, I know you wanted me to be here. I just want to tell you: I will leave in about 5 minutes. I’m really not in the mood for this, she said.”
Karim looked surprised and even a bit worried. He started to look slightly to her right and left like he was looking for something or someone.
“ Can you stay a bit longer, Cynthia. Can you do it for me, he finally said? I have to do something and I’m coming back. Just wait for me.”
Cynthia sighted. She was more and more nervous and impatient. But she still had some energy left to continue to complain about her week. She would turn any subject Angie would come with, and start whining about her life.
10 minutes later, Karim came back with someone. A handsome man in a black suit.
That guy just looked like Matthew McConaughey !
Then something happened. The man and Cynthia literally froze. Not a word.
It seemed that they both could not even breathe. Angela and Cynthia’s friend looked at each other, smiling.
Yes, that was the reason why Karim insisted that Cynthia stayed in the room. There was a plan in motion.
And there it was.
Love at first sight.
Looks like Cynthia was just about to panic. Her emotion was so strong that she just wanted to run away with her high heels in her hands!
And leave the man of her dream behind.
He offered a lift to her home. She said yes. Then no. Then yes….
To tell the truth, that man was ready to go up to Russia just for her…
