Do you like me? Check Yes or No

Last Sunday I met the cutest lady at Church and found out that we both live in the Domain. If you know anything about me, you know I am the worst friend maker in the world. I wonder if it is a major character flaw to want to sit and watch television or if I am feeling extra spontaneous.… read a book, instead of entertain. I wish it was socially acceptable to disclose that your best talent involves a DVR.
                However, yesterday I thought I would step out of my comfort zone (GO ME) and go to Kona Grill with my new friends. I was extremely nervous that this whole double date would be a complete failure. Often times when meeting new couples my eccentric husband will go off on 20 minute tangents about who knows what and all I can think about is, “I hope they are interested, and we aren't scaring them off.” My husband could get along with anyone and is super friendly, much unlike myself.
                Sometimes I feel like meeting a new couple is like going on a blind date, all I can think about is “Man, I hope they like me” and “I sure wish I don’t have anything in my teeth.” Is it a bad sign when after our date the couple announces they will not be in town for a couple weeks? Should I take a note from the movie He’s Not That Into You, and assume they were letting us off lightly? Maybe I am being too hard on myself. We had a lot in common, and although it is hard to admit I would have rather been eating with that couple, then watching Criminal Minds. 


  1. I totally agree about being really nervous about double dates. Good "couple friends" as I call them aren't easy to find--all four of you have to get along! Once my husband and I went out with another couple. Both of us got along well with the wife (she was in my husband's ward growing up, so they were long time buddies) but neither of us liked her husband!

    Just to make this comment super awkward, my husband and I would love to go on a double date with you guys =) Russel texted your husband one week, but you were out of town so we'll have to try to find another time!

    1. Hey Jaime. Omgoodness, so glad you validated my concerns. We miss you and Russell. Let us know when you are available and we will hang out for sure. Matt is still bugging me about his fish tank haha.

  2. We would love to.. you guys are so creative and fun, we need to get out of our house haha.
