    I use to be in the 2nd group, but after every single blind date (and most regular ones) ending in rotten dead-ends I am firmly in the 1st group. At 58 and still single, I now consider myself pretty much worthless in the dating department. I'll settle for just making and being a "good friend" with the women I meet - I have much better success doing that. Maybe nature will take a better course, you just never know. Though with my luck for the past 40 years, I figure I'll finally get married in my 60s or 70s :)

    Wow, and mormons think the "world" is astray? I hope this chicks entire blog series ends with some rational. She seems out there and like most bloggers that the mormon times would call "contributers" are just writing about their own lives or mormondom with little understanding of this whole big world and the other 99.99999~ percent of the people not like you. It is entertaining but surely there has to be a line drawn on just blogging your opinion... Oh wait, that is called journalism- something the DNEWS needs to get into instead of blogging or just pouching stories from high profile news outlets!

    I, too, am in the third category. And I have a rule about blind dating: The person wishing to set me up must either introduce us personally or accompany us on a double date; no exceptions, and no handing over phone numbers or e-mail addresses, patting me on the back, and saying, "Good luck!"

    I have to say that I'm probably in the 3rd category as well. I've found that other people's assessments of a person's traits can differ greatly from my own. However, when it comes to "cyber-stalking" someone before hand, I tend to disagree slightly. There needs to be some mystery when it comes to meeting someone for the first time. By checking someone out beforehand, you risk forming a possibly false preconception, and if you go so far as to say that you know a lot about your date, it may be a put-off.
