Sometimes the most intriguing invitations come across my inbox. This happened to be one of them. The header said “Date A Napkin User” and shared some of the study results. Since in my past profession, I proofed clinical protocols, I was fascinated. Thoughts like “Wait? Someone ran a study on napkin users?” “How’d they get that kind of data?” “Napkins and dating?”
Then I thought a little more about it. And actually it makes great sense.
Think of your really great dates.
Are they Thomas Crown Affair experiences?
Are they strolling through the park or dancing the night away?
Or are they spending hours getting to know each other and chatting over any and everything?
Did you learn something new? Experience something awesome?
How did you meet?
Were they courteous?
Did he open your door? Did you let him?
All of those things are the type of questions that the crew behind the study asked. Check out the data here — it’s hilarious and fascinating.
But when the roll-out Match.com + Vanity Fair Napkin tour made a stop in Dallas, I made my way there. Held at the Hickory Street Annex, guests mixed and mingled. We sipped signature lime-infused margaritas, enjoyed a freshly made spread of Tex-Mex favorites and savory bites including my favorite chicken fajitas. I met new friends while we snapped photos in the yellow rose lined photo booths and danced to familiar tunes on the floor. The setting was conducive to meeting new people and chatting as least awkwardly as possible. And in a very fun cool move, guests left with a darling pair of red sweatpants that have made this frosty Texas Spring just a bit more bearable.
Here’s a peek at the evening:
