Blind or blind date?

“Hey Ben, I have a blind date tonight.” She said to her friend and housemate.
“Reeally. I didn’t think you were the type for something like that.” He didn’t hide his discontent.
“It’s a first” she laughed.
“Where is it?”
“At the old courthouse.”
“How will you recognize the guy?”
“Oh, it’s speed-dating.” She couldn’t hide her excitement. “Five minutes with 20 guys. In the end you decide and hope that the guy you liked, likes  you too!”
“That sounds like fun.” He said sarcastically.
“I have to prepare.” She went into her room to look for something to wear, started pulling all sorts of clothes out of the cupboard and later putting on make-up in the bathroom.
During all this time, he was lurking about.
Finally she asked “What is it?”
“I don’t know how to say it….Don’t go to the speed-dating.”
“Why not?”
“Because, I love you.”
