I’ve been having a speed dating problem recently. And not the usual ones of having already dated every dude in Philly or only meeting weirdos (I know you all love them, but once in a while I might like to date a nice guy). But every time I sign up for an event lately, it is cancelled at the last minute. The most recent cancellation came with the mysterious excuse of “circumstances beyond our control,” so I decided to get to the bottom of the situation by emailing the organizer.
She replied right away:
We’re in the process of recruiting a new host for our events in Philly!
We’ve received a ton of resumes so we’re looking forward to hiring someone soon!
As soon as someone is on board we will be scheduling a ton of new events!
Have a great day!
At first I was excited. Finally, a way to turn my favorite hobby profitable. As for my resume, who could be better qualified for this job than Speed Dating Girl? But then, like any good job applicant, I reviewed her email for any hints at what my prospective employer might be looking for. And I found one major problem. In a six-line email, she had used more exclamation points than I have in the past six months of blogging. (Seriously, I went back and counted.)
So, in order to make the transition from paying dater to paid organizer, I think I will have to go into training! It’s fun! Like every sentence ends with a party!
