The quickest way to spice up your life is to do something completely out of the box. A great big thanks to the staff who were able to convince Andrea Candrian to go on a public date with me. Also to her twin sister who filled out the application. While Andrea is very comfortable being in front of the camera this was a big risk to her. I don’t blame her for having been a skeptic. She is already an accomplished press secretary of a senator and traveled all the way from DC just to go on a date with me. I am humbled that she would travel so far to go on a date with me, but so glad she did.
As I drove up to the place where we would be going on our date I looked to the left and noticed a long line of weirdos in front of a
Hollywood studio. I figured I would soon be one of the weirdos in that line. Sure enough we stood in that line for a few hours before being on the game show “Let’s Make a Deal”. I guess it doesn’t say much for me that I felt comfortable. However, getting in costume was something out of the box for Andrea. She had made us both our own attire. As we waited in line we had a lot to talk about. I love talking about politics and her involvement gave me the opportunity. While we differ a little on our feelings about Glen Beck I think we actually had a lot to talk about. As long as we weren't too far apart on views I didn't mind at all. In fact it made the date all the more interesting. Washington DC
We finally made it to the producers who spent about 10 seconds interviewing everyone. Once they got to us we told them we were on a blind date from different sides of the country. They were intrigued and took over a minute talking with us, writing a ton down. We thought we were a shoe in! We sat through the show and I had a blast flirting a little here and there. Though we never made it as contestants I felt like a winner being there with Andrea.
Just to make things a little more out of the box I decided to hold her hand on the first date. Later we found out that holding hands on a first date is a little different for both of us. I explained that lately I have been learning to do that. My reasoning is this: Some people take a lack of touching or being slightly forward on a date as a sign that you aren’t interested. If you want a girl to know you don’t want to be put in the friend zone sometimes you have to do that. Hopefully we will both avoid that friend zone and make it to date two!
