There’s a lot more to the story, but I thought I’d start at the beginning as far as this blog went.
If you were to look at us today, though, you’d notice a certain lack of … well,… anything exciting.
Both Mark and I work from home. We don’t really have a lot of hobbies outside the home or things that drag us off to meet new people.
We’re both a bit on the introverted side. So dancing into the middle of a club and saying hello to a gang of strangers and wooing them with purchased shots is really not an option for us either.
We’ve sat back the past few days and tried to figure out exactly what it is that we are going to do and how we are going to try to go about meeting someone new to bring a little bit of meaning back into the relationship meter. And we came up with an option…
Online Speed Dating.
The rules are simple.
7 people, 7 dates in 7 days.
We created a profile on OkCupid fully disclosing the fact that we are in a committed polyamorus relationship but that we are looking for others to date, whether separately or apart we were not certain, but that we were looking for people that we clicked with.
The challenge is then to find 7 people over the next 7 days to actually go out and meet with. This way we’re forcing ourselves to actually get out of the house, go be social, meet some people and see what sparks may fly.
7 people, 7 dates, 7 days.
I can do this…
Let the games begin.
