A marathon full of hope and rejection



“There’s an undeniable thrill about meeting a stranger and spending a few hours together, indulging in each other’s lives. It’s that spurt of saying whatever you want and leaving it behind with someone who’ll never look at you and think of it again.” ― Danielle Esplin, Give It Back

Have you ever noticed that going on a blind date is fraught with uncertainty and self doubts? Sight unseen two strangers arrange to meet in a public place and hope that something magical will transform their lives forever. They don personas that are totally alien to their real life selves and pretend they are someone else. In this photo three people at a bar eyeball one another with different thoughts and aspirations. Is he the one? Is she the competition? Do I have a chance? All are relevant questions and quests that would baffle Indiana Jones in this real life marathon for love. — gc

    • Most blind dates are fun Susie. You get the chance to put your best foot forward, meet new people and expand your personal horizons. The thrill of going beyond your familiar comfort zone is also exhilirating. You do need to keep your wits about things but it is generally a fun time. 🙂
