Here's the deal. I've been single since time immemorial. So, in an attempt to remedy my eternal singledom, and to get over my nauseatingly pathological fear of dates, I've decided to challenge myself. The challenge? To go on one first date a week for a year! So in 52 weeks time, I will have either found my Mr Right, or I'll stay forever Miss Write. This is what happens...
Here are the rules to the 52 First Dates challenge...
1. A first date must be had once a week, EVERY week, for 52 weeks.
2. Taking someone home after a drunken night on the cider does NOT count, otherwise this challenge would just be slutty, and none of us want that do we?!?
3. Second and third dates are allowed, I must continue first dates unless there are exceptional mitigating circumstances. For example, God forbid, the start of relationship!
The most Frequently Asked Question
The question I'm most asked about is 'what happens if I meet someone I really like?' Well the simple answer is, that'd be the end of 52 First Dates! if the right person came along, that's a sacrifice I'm only too happy to make. I don't have to complete the challenge, ideally I'd love to meet someone before the year is through, but as I'm rapidly discovering, that's easier said than done...
