A few months ago, my love life went through a dry spell. It wasn’t that messages weren’t coming in on Match.com or that guys wouldn’t chat me up when I hit happy hour after work. I just wasn’t connecting with anyone.  I felt really blah about the men who I went on dates with (usually only one date with) and I started to doubt my “picker.” Maybe I’m bad at this, I thought to myself.

(Apparently Ken has been around the dating show block quite a few times, having not found his perfect match yet. It’s hard to understand why.) This blind date is so bad, it’s what our friend Anna of the blog Shmitten Kitten describes as “cringe-core.” In other words, enjoy! [Shmitten Kitten]

Blind dates are awkward for everyone. There’s enough to worry about without discovering that your date just so happens to be your long, lost sibling. Um … yeah. Try recovering from that awks moment. And here I was thinking I had had the most awkward blind date of all time. He told me he was under investigation by the FBI during our first drink. Keep reading »
