If you've spent any amount of time on the Internet, you know all about the crowdsourcing trend.
Whether it's a parent looking to fundraise for their child's medical expenses or a community looking to help make a kid's dream a reality, the "series of tubes" is filled with requests to rally the Internet for help.
And now it's my turn to try out the crowdsourcing trend. No, I'm not looking for donations or medical support. What am I asking for?
Help finding a date.
I figured the internet has rallied around numerous causes, so what's one more, albeit awkward, cause?
It's no secret that my personal life has been, how do I say this, "PG." I seemed to have mastered the skill of asking only girls with boyfriends out on dates. I don't know if it's just cruel luck, or God's twisted sense of humor, but every time I finally have the courage to ask a girl out, she's always already taken. And you think it'd end there, but no. Instead of saying, "No, thank you," she says, "Sure!" Then when she shows up, she brings along her boyfriend. I know I ride on six wheels everyday, but being the third wheel on a pity date isn't anyone's idea of a good time.
If God's getting a kick from my awkward experiences, my interactions with the opposite sex are as good as gold. So this is where you come in. I'm turning over my chance at my true First Date over to you, the interwebz.
This Saturday, August 9, I have two tickets to the Justin Timberlake concert at Jobing.com arena in Glendale, AZ. Now, my normal plan would be to go with a family member. But this time I'm going to take a chance. If you know a single lady out there who'd like to spend an evening with one of the sexiest men on the planet, and Justin Timberlake, send her my way.
Crowdsourcing for my first date is a little unorthodox, but maybe that's what I need to finally get me out of my shell and in to an actual social life.
