I’m Trying To Find My Friend His Future Wife: Phase II
Well, this has been interesting.
As we all know, a little over a week ago, I announced my efforts to help my friend find his future wife via this blog. The response was more than I ever expected it to be. The night before I went live with the first post, I told my friend not to expect more than 10 women to respond. As it turns out, I suck at estimating these types of things. We received way more than 10 submissions, and I must say to the ladies who submitted their photos and expressed interest, a standing ovation to you all.
Both in the comments and offline, there were still a lot of questions people had about this process. Especially after we went live with the podcast. Most people intiially thought this was fun and games, some people still think it is, but the honest truth is, I’m not doing this for laughs and I’m not doing this for kicks.
Like I said before, I understand this is a most unusual method to help my friend out, and as some have pointed out, my friend might not even need help, especially if he is already dating on his own. But, I feel differently, and even though I know he’s already dating, I wanted to help him expand his search because, well, frankly, I just know more than all these spectators standing on the sidelines with their snap judgements. My boy has been through a lot, and not to put too much of his business, but most of his expereinces haven’t been the best. He doesn’t need help, but is it so bad that I’m helping him? I don’t think so.
If there’s one problem I see with our generation it’s this: We’re too self-involved with our happiness. We may cheer each other on and root for each others happiness, but how many of us play an active role in helping our friends get to happy? I’m trying to help my friend find that one special person with whom he’ll spend the rest of his life, and some people have the gall to question the sincerity of my efforts.
But I digress, this isn’t about me, this is about my boy and this search for his wife. That being said, we’re moving onto the next phase.
What we have done is sent an email out to the women who he is interested in getting to know better. We also sent some photos of him so that they too can make a decision as to whether or not they want to pursue in building with him. From there, I’m going to connect them, and they’re on their own. I have no idea what’s going to happen next, nor do I know what Phase III is going to look like. All I know is we’re moving on to Phase II and so far it’s been cool.
Oh, and one more thing, I know I said I would send pictures to everyone who sent them, but we decided to switch things up. Since everyone I know is interested in seeing what my friend looks like, I put a couple of photos of him on the Facebook page. Click here to check them out.
