Blind dates are double-edged swords with the potential to either beautify or awkwardify life: I know a lot of married couples who met on blind dates; I also know a lot of single people who have been set up with weirdos. The nice thing is we live in the information age, and you have the right to refuse any setup you’re not comfortable with. The key is if you do enough verbal and Internet stalking in advance, you can drastically decrease your likelihood of being real-life stalked by a blind date later.
