And can't you just meet outside Starbucks with instructions that say hey I'm the guy in the green hat and you're the girl with the polka dot skirt, like normal blind dates? I love how when you're a kid 40 feels like 80, and 20 is at best, 40.
At the end of this painfully long segment Kate chooses a boring but sensible little black dress.
Deanna provides a very vague story about how she's known Vann for many months (ever since she first saw his headshot), he's handsome and hard working, and would make a good match for Kate.
I guess if you're looking for opposites attract you're right on the money.
They see their father dating and happy, surely they have learned by now watching a parent move on and date is not that big of a deal.
Anyway, I enjoy how all this flies right in the face of the sheeple, who have claimed all along Kate doesn't date for the good of her children. Deanna, that's how you find yourself 40 and single.
No, Kate doesn't date because she can't get a date, doesn't know how to get a date, is a child exploiter, opportunist and narcissist that would not make a wise partner for most men so most men avoid her, kids or no kids. What does she know about what one should wear on their first, second or third dates? No one wants to feel like they're meeting up with you to sign a contract, second date or not.
There is a very, very long segment about some of the kids helping her pick out clothes. Dating tip: Don't trust dating advice from hopelessly single friends.
His first meeting with Kate is awkward, explains Kate. They have admitted they've slept in the same bed, and there are a number of bootleg photos circling out there for years showing them acting very huggy-kissy.
Hanger on Deanna is playing the role of the well-meaning but completely misguided friend who wants to set you up, which is just a front for the producers going through a couple hundred head shots and picking this guy out. Kate claims she has gone on a handful of dates since the divorce. Kate is quite vague about how Deanna knows Vann, because she knows him mostly from his head shot, but his resume sounds good. As we know, the running joke, or maybe even truth, is that Kate's relationship with Jamie might not always have been platonic.
