First date

"So, what's your sign?"

"Pisces." (Thinking: And the fact that you asked that question is my sign that we won't be having a second date . . .)

UPDATE: I posted this to Facebook too, and one friend responded:

Were you on a date in the 70s? (the decade, that is)
Another friend said:
Ask her what color your aura is, and how old you will live to according to the little creases on your palm. If she starts telepathically communicating with an invisible friend *AHEM,* "spirit guide," she's a keeper!
Seeing those two comments together made me feel like a character in one of the LA scenes in Annie Hall.

That nicely illustrates the appeal of speed dating. Five minutes isn't nearly enough to decide whether you want to spend the rest of your life with the person on the other side of the table, but it's more than enough to exclude large portions of humanity from the pool of eligibles.

The same applies to online dating.
