My Story, Yours Too.

These Things I Know About the BDFH

1) BDFH (blind date from hell) is a redundant term.
2) I won’t have one ever again. I swear.
3) The next one I have will look like this. I swear. (Note: You’d swear too if you had to date this guy.)

4) He might offer to pick up the tab if I order tap water.
5) I like a slice of lemon with my water and will therefore bring a quarter.
6) While he boasts about his doting mother, I will fantasize about more pleasant activities (e.g., getting a root canal or styling Justin Bieber’s hair).
7) If and only if he looks like this, he will try to kiss me.
8) If and only if he looks like this and tries to kiss me, I will barf on his face.
9) Then, he will look the same.
10) I do the BDFH thing for entertainment purposes only.
11) Your entertainment, not mine.


  1. We all sincerely thank you for this great sacrifice you are making the sole purpose of our entertainment.

  2. Nice photo of gurning! Such talent. I don't even have to do that to be ugly.

  3. I've never been on a blind date.....guess I should consider myself lucky, eh?!

  4. Have you ever considered trying a blindfold date? It might be scary at first, but at least you could use your imagination.

  5. Never Been on a Blind Date. But if he looked anything like that guy I think I'm Lucky! :)

  14. I just popped over from Java's Follow Me Friday and had a great laugh at your Blind Date blog. Too funny.

    I had a horrible blind date experience once myself wherein I got stuck on a river cruise without any way of escaping the date for 4 hours!! AWFUL!!! But funny in retrospect as I actually found myself looking longingly over the side of the boat into the muddy water and considering how quickly I could swim to shore. :D

    I'm following you now & look forward to reading more of your blog.

    Hey, Java. I'm so grateful to have found your blog. I've made lots of new connections through it today alone and am thrilled for that. I'll hop over again soon! THANKS!

    I'm so excited the scrunched face dude netted me so many wonderful new followers! It seems he's good for something.
    [Thanks dude, and sorry I barfed on your face. Did you clean it up yet? I can't tell.]

    Chocolate kisses and hugs to you all (except the scrunched face dude)!

  30. I had a blind date to my junior prom...had just broken up with (my now husband) and we didn't go together. It was Terrible! Then I had to do it again...and go to his!! Yuck!!

  31. I've never had a blind date in my life, thank God!

  32. lol.... Blind date, schmind date! That fella looks like marriage material! Imagine the money you'd save on toothpaste....

  33. BDFH? I had actually never heard that term before, but now I finally have a description for EVERY blind date EVER, except like two. I'm utterly paranoid of blind dates. Especially cheapskate ones.

  34. That guy scared me. I guess I will have a nightmare today! BTW, hilarious post. You make me laugh all the time...:)

  35. Checking back to see if you have a new post, noticed your new pic! Very pretty! :)

  36. Wow that guy is freaking scary. I would crap myself if he came at me asking for a smooch! Especially since I am a guy.

  37. Who's that HUNK?!?! Is it selfish of me to say that I'm really grateful that you date guys like this for my own personal pleasure of reading about it?

  38. Gayle, that is truly yucky. Glad it all ended well. xo

    ThisMom, thanks! I'm a new follower too. :)

    ABAO, good point. Not good enough. xo

    Lindz, I made the term up. I felt I had the right to do so. May you never have one. [-;

    Mr.Stupid, sorry for your nightmare. I'll replace the image soon, hopefully. You always make me laugh too, silly guy. xo

    Ally, aren't you glad you came over? ;-}

    Jerry, lol. May that day never come. xo

    Sarah, be selfish all you want. I do this for you and my followers. [-;

    Chocolate kisses and real smiles (with teeth),

  39. Daddy!!!!!!!!!! hahaha glad he's made a name for
