A friend of mine called me out of the blue this weekend saying that she knew a guy who seemed perfect for me. At the very least she believed that we would become good friends. I have always been kind of weary of matchmaking. However, as she *forced* me to stalk his Facebook page for proof that he really was a decent guy, I realized that I kind of liked what I saw.
She did the ping pong thing which led to a lengthy phone conversation between me and *Mr. X*. After we hung up, my mind began turning. On a scale of 1 - 10, how did I feel about the conversation? Was I interested? Was he interested? While I couldn't answer any of those questions, the spirit of randomness came upon me (as it regularly does) and I developed a flag system. Enjoy!
Warning: Exposure to the inner workings of my mind can be humorous, shocking, and somewhat dangerous. Reader discretion is advised.
Red Flag: Stop. Immediately. Do not pass 'Go'. Do not collect $200.
White Flag: Give up. Stop while you're ahead
Orange Flag: Ummmm, that reminds me of those neon orange vests that the safety captains at my old job wore during fire drills. I think I'll pass on orange.
Green Flag: It's a go...or in my best friend's world - start the wedding planning immediately. I'm almost 30 and my biological clock is ticking.
Yellow Flag: Proceed with caution. This one is my favorite by far.
I'm keeping my flags. Still don't know about the guy though...
