The fun outweighed the romance
"As for me, I got some numbers, some compliments, a couple dates, and a slew of new friends to go to shows with. All in all it was a successful evening and I can't wait for the next one. Until then, good luck in love, metal heads!" -- Kari
"Anna, the auburn-haired beauty from date number two, came up to me at the end of the evening and asked me out. More than anything else that happened over the span of the night -- being forced into conversations with 31 people, getting outside of my typical crowd, the overwhelming darkness and noise of the bar -- having a girl step up to the plate and actually have the bravery to ask me out was my most shocking takeaway. I turned her down, but it was a great cap to a surprisingly fun night. I admittedly spent most of the night ragging on the untraditional setup of the event. But, in the end, I had too much of a good time to deny it." --Brett
