Family Dating Service

One of the main topics of conversation between myself and my family whenever I ‘m back in Fremont revolves around when I’m going to settle down, get married and have kids. Now, my family knows me well enough to know that it’s going to take a lot and one heck of a guy to tie me down, and hopefully he won’t “tie” me down, but rather join me in my traveling (mis)adventures, but still…that’s what we talked about. A lot.

In fact, I had one cousin email me a company ID photograph of a coworker from the company directory that she thought I should meet. Another keeps telling me about her coworker that’s really nice and funny. She wants to give me his email address.

It’s all very nice and swell and I’m always up for meeting new people but honestly, I wouldn’t know the first thing to do with such an introduction. “Um…Hi. My cousin wanted me to contact you because she thought we might want to make babies together someday…”? No thanks.

Since they keep trying to set me up, I’m starting to wonder if I should I let them set me up, just to see what hijinks will inevitably ensue from such awkward situations? I think it would be funny but at the same time, I don’t really want to put myself through the unnecessary torture. Then again, at least after everything I can say that I’ve been on a blind date.

What say you?
