January 8, 2010 Urban Word of the Day
As opposed to a blind date, where you have no idea what the other person looks like, a nearsighted date is one where you've seen a photo or chatted via web cam before meeting in person.
This can often lead to disappointment if one person or the other has supplied misleading documentation.
"Well, I saw her profile pics on Facebook, so it was more of a nearsighted date than a blind date"
"That's the last nearsighted date I ever go on...her profile pic must have been 5 years, 3 hair colors and 2 kids ago."
"Went on a nearsighted date last night. The picture he emailed me must have been from before he quit the gym."
