Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
Here is a simple and innocent move that will instantly tell you if you're in the friend zone, or if she's waiting for you to kiss her.
The only reason I stated that blind dates can be terrifying for me is that the one time I decided to go out with someone who was reccommended, the guy tried to attack me. Being set up - well, I met my now deceased fiancee on a blind date. I think people are trying to be nice when they set you up. So if it doesn't work out - I don't think you should blame the matchmaker.
I am sure not everyone's dates go that badly, and that is was just bad timing for me with that... I think romance of any kind and work/job should be kept separate, even when it comes to matchmaking.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. No more blind dates know I have herd horror stories ..I just havent seen it ... and all have gone well .all resulted in romance .all resulted in having a good time and making a new friend ....
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... Not since my co-worker set me up with her ex-brother-in-law. actually I have had hundreds of dates in my life ..have never had a horror date ..
By running the idea past her friend first, she can put in a good word for you.

This weekend confirmed what I’ve long secretly suspected, but never before gotten the chance to actually prove: I am a brilliant matchmaker! That’s fine: if both parties are still amenable, you’ll just have to handle the introductions yourself. Of course, Ethel will know what’s really going on, and say yes.
Yesterday I set up two people that I had an inkling would really get along. Anyway, yesterday I spent a good half an hour basking in my success, and during that time I jotted down a few tips. You can’t invite Fred and Ethel over to your place, because you can’t very well leave your own house to give them some alone time, and it’s hard for them to leave together without seeming rude. Choose a place where you will be able to take off early.
In order to protect their identities and privacy, for the purpose of this article I’m going to call them Fred and Ethel. Before you ever even bring up the Your most important role as matchmaker is to make sure the people you’re setting up experience the least amount of embarrassment/rejection possible. ” Give Fred Ethel’s email address, and 24 hours to email her. A good matchmaker will facilitate the conversation without dominating it: subtly steer the conversation in directions which will flatter your matchees, and pay close attention to the conversation so you know when to chime in and when to tune out.
If you think either party is anything less than enthusiastic, abort the mission! If things are going well, and it gets to a point where the two are talking animatedly to each other and don’t notice when you slip out of the room to get your coat, you know your work is done.

He jumped down out of a 10' tall pick up truck and I looked 12" down at the top of his head. I have had a few result in the women becoming mildly stalkers .I guess if they had not had a good time on our date that would not have happened ..know me thinks its about expectations and being able to take the first date awkwardness with a bit of humor ...I have made a fool out of myself on a first date ..have had dates make a fool of themselves also ..many times that served to break the ice yes I have been set up with women who I was not romantically compatible but they just became prospective friends ..if I was set up with the wicked witch of the west ... I had a rule of thumb in my last career (no offices how ever) Never get your paycheck and Lovin in the same place.
