Live Blog Part II: Divorced

6:31 – Me and my date are the first of two couples to arrive at Nick”s house.

6:42 – The other couple, Debbie and Karl, arrive with their friend, Shannon, who will be meeting Nick for the first time. The two greet each other with a handshake.

6:47 – Nick apologizes for dinner being a few minutes late. Shannon makes a comment about loving a man who can cook.

6:54 – We sit down for dinner. Shannon explains how she knows Debbie and Karl, as does Nick. Nick says he is surprised he has not met her before and he is sorry for that.

6:58 – Nick says he hopes everyone’s food came out well. And it did.

7:01 – Shannon asks how Nick got into his line of work and if he likes it.

7:16 – Nick brings up the topic of kids. Shannon has 2 just like Nick.

7:25 – We get into the state of the economy and how it is effecting everyone during the holidays.

7:33 – Dinner has been done for several minutes but Nick finally cleans the table and ask about dessert. He brings out chocolate cake.Yum.

7:36 – Shannon is still taken by Nick’s cooking skills again.

7:51 – We finish dessert and move into the living room and play several board games. Each couple is a team. Shannon and Nick bond and work very well together.

8: 32 – Games come to an end. Shannon must leave because her babysitter can only stay until 9.

8:36 – Shannon and Nick say goodbye and expect to see each other again getting each others. E-mail and number.

I think even without people being there, everyone can see which couple clicked and which didn’t. It was very fun, and at times akward, to watch both couples in action. I feel by being there it didn’t change how either couple acted at all, in fact it helped pick up conversations from time to time. Since Nick is older then Adam, he felt more comfortable having people in his house and entertaining others rather then Adam would have and it seemed to work out for him. All four singles brought something to the conversation and was different in their own way, but how they acted and responded definatley showed their age. I think it just shows that no matter how old or young someone is, there are always problems and things to loook forward to. Its not the age, its the individual.
