I don’t know when, but at some point in the past eight months, I must have submitted a profile to a local singles site. I got a phone call from them today, asking me to come in for an interview. I’m going on Friday, if just to see what it’s like.

I’m fairly confident in my personality. It doesn’t seem like many people leave the room when I arrive or suddenly stop talking when I am in earshot. To my knowledge, I am only notorious for my potty mouth and tendency to whip out the knitting at the drop of a hat.

The thing that saddens me about my upcoming appointment is that my roots are nearly an inch long and I don’t know if I’ll be able to brave bleach on my own. Is it weirder to show up with fading pink hair and bad roots, bright pink hair with bad roots or no roots but potentionally a funky bleach job underneath the pink? I know I wouldn’t be introduced to someone on the spot, but you want to give a good (though in my case, fairly pink) impression of yourself to someone who will hopefully be promoting you and your personal brand of crazy.

Has anyone ever had an interview with a dating service? What is it like? Am I setting myself up for a wasted evening?

No matter how it goes, I’m sure it’ll be entertaining. Plus, this is a good opportunity for me to get my butt out of the apartment and do something I would not normally do. It could lead to me doing other things that I wouldn’t normally do. Like meet men. Talk to someone with a lower voice than mine. Perhaps a person with attractive stubble and nice shoulders. A girl can dream, dammit!

  1. But…if you re-do the pink, why would you have bad roots? Forgive me, but you know just how totally un-hip (although totally hip-y) I am. My personal vote is for re-pinking…bleach would just cause damage…and your hair is so gorgeous that’d be sad.
    No dating service experience here… hubby is involved with developing a dating service product for the Blackberry crowd…but that’s it for me.
    Like you say, should be interesting going for the interview!!
