My Blind Date

Sue Ellyn Carpenter Barton

This true story of a young woman's remembrance of her spoiled childhood to her preteen years is told comically and includes her many shenanigans with her classmates at school and her three older sisters, who she is convinced are ruining her life. And it continues through her teenage years where she turns into a spoiled teenager. Her Dad, who is her best friend, unknowingly helps her remain the brat she is, but despite all odds, she turns into a young woman and does what she believes is the unthinkable when she asks for a blind date.

While she is a deacon's kid, a missionary's kid, and a preacher's kid, she believes she is a long, tall, totally out-of-proportioned Sally and has become a hopeless basket case of zero mentally, though she is a straight A student.

Meanwhile, when a blind date is successfully set up for her, she is convinced he is going to hate her or he is going to think she is ugly or vice versa. However, when blind eyes meet, surprisingly, she encounters the military man of her dreams and falls deeply in love with him. Right away, sex becomes an issue, however, at thirteen years old, she has vowed to God that she will remain a virgin until she is married.

The story turns passionate while she struggles to keep her vow to God, but eventually, she revisits her stance on sex and believes God probably didn't hear her when she made a decision so young about sex, since she didn't know what it was like to be in love. However, he is a man in every sense of the word and desires a sexual relationship with her. Still, the two are confronted with many disappointments, separations, and events, both good and bad, that could have easily toppled their relationship. As a result, does he leave her because she won't have sex with him? Or...does she keep her vow to God and he agrees to wait with her? Or...does he pressure her until she has a sexual relationship with him?
