Looking for Jack

During this fun experiment of 30 Dates in 30 Days for my friend, Kristy, I’m convinced that she is supposed to land with a man name Jack.


99% of her dates (and a couple more that are pending) involve men with names beginning with initials “J” or “A” or “C” or “K”.   It’s too strange to ignore.

So with a couple more days left in this experiment, are there any single Jacks out there?

Brave, Brave Man

What would you do if someone were to set you up on a blind date?  You don’t know what the other person looks like.  You don’t have a chance to speak to the other person before the date.  And you’ve never met the “setter upper”.  Oh, and you know that the date will be on a blog and Twitter.

Takes a brave men to step up to the plate on this one.

Marcus decided he was adventurous enough to try it for my 30 Dates in 30 Days experiment with my friend, Kristy.  I was mostly impressed with Marcus not showing any concern about what she looked like…impressed because he’s a pretty good-looking guy himself.  And, although he would probably never say this, he was probably relieved when he saw her.

You might ask why I’m not having the potential daters to interact before I set up a date…it’s really the hope that both sides will go into the date with an open-mind and not have any preconceived notions about the other person.

I don’t know if this is a love connection yet, but there was enough interest that both Kristy and Marcus are interested in a second date.   I arranged for them to meet for dinner at Victory44 (funny choice, as I’ve not even dined there yet) on a recommendation on Twitter by someone following this madness.  A lot of conversation and according to both of them, a lovely dinner.  So, Marcus, I think the next move is up to you.

(You know how much I love food, so I had to post images of part of their dinner).

30 Dates in 30 Days

So I challenged my pretty, single friend, Kristy, to go on 30 Dates in 30 Days.  It is quite the time commitment and maybe a little scary, but I’m determined to prove to her that there are some great single, straight men in the Twin Cities!

Dating begins July 1st and I will be screening the men for her.  I only have a couple of days to get the first few dates set up!

If you meet these guidelines and are interested, email style@stylelaboratory.com with something witty:

* late 20’s to mid 30’s

* for sure single…she isn’t interested in wittingly or unwittingly being the “other woman”

* don’t be a couch potato…she is active with a great career and pursuit of a variety of interests (including sports and music)

Dates can be meeting for coffee, lunch or dinner or going to a movie or Twins game.

Hey Kristy, game on!
