I had a fun weekend. On Saturday night I was out to dinner with my best friend MaryAnn. We’ve known each other since we were kids. Been through everything together. So nothing I do out in public embarrasses her.
I created a business card to advertise my blog. And I pass it out any chance I get. I put them in the folders when I pay the bill at a restaurant. Well on Saturday we were at Biggies on Watson (good food and fun atmosphere). So behind us was a table of people. One guy and several girls. He was telling his story about his being the “Rebound guy”. Meaning the girls he meets they are on the rebound and he ends up there. Anyway I thought this was a good opportunity to give out one of my cards. When we paid our bill I went to his table. I said I couldn’t help but hear his Rebound Guy story. I gave him my card and said you have to read my online dating blog. It is funny and I think he would enjoy it. I told him I also had a you tube channel and my interview with Channel 5. He was so nice. He asked if I was on facebook and I said I was. He said he would friend me.
Anyway, if I was with my 17 year old daughter she would have been embarrassed and ran out the door without me. LOL!! But not MaryAnn. She got a kick out of it. I couldn’t tell if he was wearing a ring or not and if he was I do apologize. I in no way want to come between him and his girl. But his story made me laugh and I love sharing my card and stories with everyone.
I am having more cards printed up. I also order a dozen pens with my online blog on it to pass out her and there. I want to have a t-shirt made too so I can wear it out and be advertisement for my blog.
I think when you are out and you see a guy you think you’d like to get to know, you should be able to walk up to them and talk to them. It’s the 21st century so I believe women can make the first move. I think guys would be flattered. Guys: What do you think?
My next post will be a list of my tips for your online dating profiles. I posted a couple in my earlier blogs but will put them together and add some more. Of course, these are just my suggestions. J
Lastly for tonight, this Friday begins the fun Fish Fry season in St. Louis. Not sure how other cities are but the fish fries in Lent are huge here. I want to put in a plug for the one I work at every Friday. St. Cecilia’s Mexican Fish Fry. Besides the usual fish dishes they offer Chili Relleno, Cheese Quesadilla and Bean Tostada. They also have a tamale cart that goes around while you are in line (and the lines are long). They also have pico de gallo and the best Margarita’s (so I’m told). All Mexican dishes are made by the wonderful Mexican community at St. Cecilia’s. The school kids doing Mexican dancing through the night and a strolling Mariachi band is there as well. It’s a fun time.
