Match-making. Or not.

Recently I met a British girl at a party.  She’d only just arrived in Sydney and didn’t know many people so I tried to be friendly and welcoming without being overwhelming or stalky.  Seems to have worked as we swapped numbers and have met up a couple of times since the party – I showed her where the shops and cinemas were.  

But I confess, when I first met her I thought:

“She is blonde and intelligent and classy and has decent sized boobs, therefore Running-Man Friend with Freud the Cat will like her, I must introduce them at the first opportunity.”

Which I did, on Wednesday night.  I even managed to forebear from nudging him and going “So?” whilst wiggling my eyebrows suggestively.

I needn’t have bothered, he didn’t fancy her.  Drat him.  She’s ideal.

  1. But isn’t it kind of nice to know that not all guys immediately go for busty blondes? I mean, just from a survival-of-the-species standpoint.

    Damn. I was looking forward to some good matchmaking stories!

    Perhaps you should ask out Running-Man friend?? Wink wink, Nudge Nudge…..

    You should have told him that she is awful and no end of trouble.

    David – well, yes, it is reassuring, but in my experience (as a tall blonde), most men actually prefer petite brunettes… 😉

    Jenny – nope, Running Man Friend is the guy whose family I really like, and he’s a good friend, but I don’t fancy him in the least. He has long fingernails.

    Mr Random – good point. Psychological games are not my strong suit, but even I should have been able to figure out that would have been more effective!

    What is it with these men?! Usually predictable, the one you crash up against seem to have minds of their own! Wass the world coming to etc! 🙂

    You can lead a horse to water. But you can’t make him snog a blonde.

    I’ve tried matchmaking. I didn’t make it.

  7. truce says:

    piereth – right. damn and blast them.

    pandemonic – yes, you can get awful burns from the phosphorus… 😉
