As you all know, I signed up for Tawkify because it sounded really neat. I have had a few phone dates, all of which pretty much went nowhere fast. But Ladies and Gentlemen, I can now cross “Tawkify Mystery Date” off of my bucket list.
If you have any balls whatsoever to do this – I would very much recommend it. Tawkify, even if they aren’t in your area, plans the whole thing. You just show up. Honestly, activity speaking: Hands down most unique and fun date I have ever been on.
When I was informed they were scheduling my Mystery Date, my personal matchmaker informed me that my date did not look like Clark Gable. I was instructed to bring an envelope – and my date would have a card for said envelope. So, I went to our meet-up place looking for a non-Clark Gable lookalike carrying a card of some sort. I found the man with the card, and sure enough – Definitely no resemblance to Clark Gable.
We then had to text our matchmaker to find out our next instructions. ”Find a pen and write the following message in the card..” Luckily, I had predicted needing a pen, so that was easy. Mystery Date (MD.. no, he wasn’t a doctor..) and I discussed who we thought this birthday card was going to. We decided it was going to E. Jean Carroll (the mastermind behind Tawkify), so – we may not have exactly followed the instructions on what to write on the card.
Next step, walk a block away to the local Lawn Bowling club, where we had been signed up to play. The loser would be responsible for mailing off the birthday card. Lucky for me (and Tawkify – because I never would have sent it), MD was even worse at lawn bowling than I was – and we found out that the birthday card was being sent to a celebrity.
Would I go on another Tawkify Mystery Date? Absolutely. What I especially enjoyed about it was that I was pretty much guaranteed to meet an extrovert – which I did. The Online Dating pool does seem to be introverted when it comes to guys. Don’t get me wrong – that’s probably what I need, being an extrovert myself.. but it’s nice to meet someone who has the guts to go on an ultimate blind date, set up by near strangers.
What are you waiting for? Go do it! I promise you’ll have fun!
