Remember the classic kids game Guess Who? That’s what speed dating is like.

Staring at a dozen or so funny looking faces, awkwardly asking the same questions over and over again.

Just when you think you’re ready for love, you’re not. That’s what I told myself after receiving another romantic musing from Chef.

Chef is the hopeless romantic I met on Match.com while in Miami on vacation a few weeks ago. We emailed, talked, texted and face timed every day since the first connection. It felt as if we hit it off from the start.

In Vegas, anything can happen and the scene was set: a pair of extra large twins (6’5 to be exact) sat at the bar becoming bookends to their tattooed little person friend nudged in between.

My friend and I washed down our burgers with Baileys mixed with Oreos and Tiramisu milkshakes. I had just briefed her on the #lovejump and my attempt to let love find me, so she was primed for the wing-woman seat.

Since rule number 1 of the #lovejump is being open to guys I normally wouldn’t date or typically find attractive, I began to scan the room for potential mates— not leaving anyone out.
