    Blind date nightmare??

    Good Afternoon CollegeNet,

    What if your friend set you up on a blind date and you finally get to see this person but wasn't attracted to the person at first glance, should you stay to get to know him/her or would you kindly reject them?

    Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day :)

    Re: Blind date nightmare??

    Hi,

    If it were at the beginning of the blind date when I saw the person and didn't find them attractive, I would probably finish out the date. I think it would be rude and hurtful to immediately see the person and then say "no thank you, I don't want to go out on the date anymore". If the person I'm being set up with or the people who set me up asked me at the start of the blind date if I like what I see, I wouldn't lie to them.

    So yeah, I would finish out the date. After that date I wouldn't lead the person on. I would tell them the truth about my feelings. I would also question my friendship with the person who set me up. I mean if they knew me, wouldn't they know what I would find attractive?

    Kuuleialoha pretty much summed it up. So if we meet and were gonna go out - I would think it rude to say sorry for coming out to meet me but since I'm not attracted to you so go home. Of course, don't waste their time or lead them on but at least finish the date. And perhaps they might even surprise you.

    The other thing I disagree on is questioning my friend - after all, would all your friends who might suggest someone for you actually know what you find attractive. Do you go around telling all your friends the exact intricacies of what attracts you to others, if you could even define it in words yourself?
