My New Flag System

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...
