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.
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.
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.
I think it's absolutely f--ing hilarious that as Kate is explaining all this, they show a photo of her with her BFF Jamie.
Conversely, the older you get the younger people look, right? All in all none of these kids seem to mind her going on a date.I can still remember being a freshman in college and how old and important I felt, but look at freshmen now and they are absolute babies. Most of them are at best indifferent, and those who do care actually seem pretty selfless about this, just wanting Kate to find somebody. 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.Made more awkward still by Deanna being right there in the middle introducing them like it's 6th grade. I kind of feel like that's something you should mention to the guy before you set him up with her. That is truly brilliant editing and has to be intentional. We get the joke, Vann's really just auditioning as Kate's beard. More and more Kate has been appearing on camera without a stitch of make-up on, which is not what I would expect from someone like her. Well, what the heck, on my last date I only got some Thai food and a game of corn hole.It's not an insignificant detail that you can get into later, like you prefer Netflix and chill on the weekends, or you can drive stick shift. Deanna's coming down from New York and will do Kate's hair and make-up and take her up to New York for the date. And don't they know the cardinal rule of first dates, the guy should come to her? I don't trust a damn thing Kate says about what the kids have said about this date so I'm just going to ignore her recap of what she claims they said and cut straight to the kids. Mady says with quite a bit of sass it's good for Kate to date and find a husband so she won't die alone. Meanwhile the younger kids think she's far too old to date.
