You don’t make it to age 29, being a single Mormon, without hearing enough dating advice to fill a library. I’m a big believer in the best dating advise is to just be your best self. If the other person doesn’t like your best self, so be it because someone else will. How refreshing it is going out with someone like Angie who you know that the person you are out with is who they really are. I automatically felt that this girl had nothing to hide and no red flags she was trying to bury.
Angie’s cousin Fallon filled out her application for the show. Thank you Fallon! She also gave her words of wisdom before her date. “Don’t be ghetto!” She told her. That I think is some sensible advice. Then she gave some more counsel, “Don’t tell him you were a boxer.” Bad counsel! Thankfully Angie decided not to take her cousins guidance on that. What cooler thing could set you apart from any other girl? This petite little Peruvian girl took boxing for 3 years. To me that’s impressive.
Don’t worry Fallon I didn’t think Angie was ghetto in the slightest. In fact, she took me to a Peruvian restaurant where she taught me some things about her culture. I learned that Angie is going to school to do something in the criminal justice department. Personally I think a lot of criminals could use a dose of Angie’s perma-smile (Urbandictionary.com says that is a word). The coolest thing I learned about Angie is that she is a family oriented girl and is looking for a family oriented guy. That’s refreshing to hear in a world deviating from the traditional family.
Next it was back to her apartment where we made crepes. One thing you should know about me is that my biggest incompetency is in the kitchen. I eat out for every meal and rarely cook. Angie found out the hard way. Apparently not every white fluffy substance in the kitchen is flour. That’s right, I mixed one cup of powdered sugar, instead of flour, into our batter. No worries, we got it right the second time and enjoyed some delish peach and banana crepes.
The night ended with a lot of laughs as I tried to do the Batacha dance. In fact, we laughed constantly through the whole night. I’ve heard many times that the number one thing girls look for in a guy is humor. I don’t know about it being number one but I can tell you there is some truth to it, because the opposite side of the coin is that guys love it when you think they are funny. I could tell Angie genuinely thought I was funny and that goes a long way! Into a second date? We’ll see.
