Meeting Friends’ Friends

7 Jan

Warning: Friends shouldn’t let friends drink & drive. Friends also shouldn’t hook up their friends with their other friends. Unless they are skilled match-making professionals…and even then its still dangerous. 😛

Here’s a goodie. A friend of mine, whom I’ve known about nine years now, had a whim to set me up with a friend of a friend.

The lovely man I was introduced to was named Christophe (false name of course).  At first glance I thought he was alright. Not great but not bad either. Like a five out of ten.

It took me a little while to approach Christophe because I’m not good with the whole meeting people thing. I’m really just not social unless I’m drinking. Lucky for me I was drinking that night!

A group of us were hanging out outside of Bru’s Room in Delray Beach. I sat down next to Christophe and figured I’d start with some easy questions to get a conversation going. I felt like I was interviewing him.

Here’s how it went:

Me: So what do you do for a living?

Christophe: I’m a plumber.

Me: How old are you?

Christophe: (Ok I don’t remember his response but I’m pretty sure he was around 30-ish.)

Me: Do you date a lot?

Christophe: Not really.

So far so good! All questions were answered normally even though he had yet to ask me anything about myself. Every guy knows that when you first meet a woman you ask her about her – it aint about you. Boys – you have to work up to the you time.

Moving on. Question 4 kind of killed the mood.

Me: How long have you been single?

Christophe: Well it depends on what you call single. Hehe…hehe…hehe

Riiiight.  His Beavis & Butthead type of laugh really sealed the deal. I settled it with an “Ok then” and a fake agreeing laugh and moved on.

I learned later that evening that he had been wearing a woman’s leather jacket too. 😐 A plumber with an affinity for women’s clothing. Now, that is interesting.

Thank you darling friend of mine – it’s the thought that counts. 

Buh-bye Christophe.

    Too funny! I love that you at least gave him a chance! But the woman’s jacket would have been a deal breaker for me too!

    Usually, when two people truly meld, it is a complete bonding: emotional, spiritual and physical. Me thinks the plumber just wants to connect at the pipe. As for the women’s leather jacket, maybe he is good friends with the Marquesa de Sade?

      LOL David – you have me cracking up over the pipe comment!! I had to Google Marquis de Sade – oooo he was a bad boy!

    Freinds mean well, but…

      Agreed! They certainly do mean well. I think my friends say “Oh you’re single! I know a single guy!” and voila – it’s supposed to be a match made in Heaven 😛 I do appreciate their efforts though.
