Match Girl had a delightful moment this morning. As part of the Mystery Date, I hold off on giving anyone details about where or whom they’re meeting until the day of. In the morning, I check in for outfit details, give them to each dater, then later in the day tell them where exactly to meet. When they find each other and alert me, they are emailed the plan for their Mystery Date.
There is nothing I won’t do for my clients, and an outfit assessment ahead of time can be helpful. This particularly witty New York chap was confused when Match Girl emailed him her standard “What are you wearing?” email. My, my!, he thought. What a question! Then it all became clear, and he wrote the following delicious email.
I thought I would share it with you as inspiration on how to approach Mystery Dates, how to have humor about the whole process, and how to define your personal style, all in one. Enjoy this wonderful note!
