I want a meaningful relationship in the near future.And in this modern age where everyone is busy, some mediums that aren’t traditional might just work. It took me awhile to actually sign up for a specific event. I actually was 20 when I bought my voucher to attend a speed date however I didn’t realize that I had to be 21.One of the best dating tips I give guests is to avoid talking about work too much at singles nights. Although it’s nice to hear what people do to get a sort of background picture, don’t spend your precious 4 minute speeddate explaining how you’ve just taken on a new really complex finance modeling system which is bound to boggle and bore your date.You want to be memorable and have 4 minutes fly by and leave your date wanting more.Part of what makes it better than just meeting some dude at a bar is you don’t have to guess if the other person is single or what they want; everyone there should just be there because they want to date.It also clears up any missed connections since at the end of the round you can decide to match if you want to get in contact with them (but it has to be mutual.)Needless to say, I’m a hopeless romantic and I truly feel that if you want something out of life you have to put yourself out there. I’ve been putting myself out there for a few months since I’ve been single and I thought why not speed dating?
If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.
It’s natural to arrive a little nervous to a speed dating event, particularly if you have never been speed dating before and don’t know what to expect.
Trust me, after the first speeddate or two (and after the first drink or two!
Singles who are smiling and laughing give off positive energy and attract others towards them.
Dating nights are fun, so always go with an open mind and a big smile. Unless you’ve got a job as a lion tamer or professional champagne/bacon taster, it’s best to leave out the details of what makes you similar to every other person in the room.
