Speed dating experience
I have to say it was fun and about a million times better than sitting in front of my computer.
I now plan on attending every one I can and was wondering if you ladies have any thoughts?
Approximately two months after the man I thought I was going to have babies with and I broke up, I decided to plunge back into the dating scene.
When the day arrives, I don a suitable work-sexy outfit, duck out early to meet my cousin for an early drink to celebrate her birthday, briefly and unsuccessfully beg her to come with me, and then walk to the bar where the event was being held. I wander back out to the bar because wine could only help this situation. This is Single Jewish Professionals, 23–33, after all.But as the years have gone on, the popularity of speed dating has dwindled … Unfortunately, the reality of modern-day speed dating, is that whilst most of the events take place in bars, the general crowd, particularly the men, are not people who are comfortable in bars.The very nature of speed dating means you have a captive audience.I’d received three warning emails since I signed up a week ago, urgently warning me to ARRIVE 30 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE EVENT OR MY SPOT WOULD BE GIVEN AWAY. The boxer and I notice a live microphone in the corner of the back room.Imagine my surprise when, a mere 25 minutes before the dating was to begin, I enter the room to find a clearly drunk 40-something in a suit slumped in a chair by the entrance, a woman with oily hair talking to a guy who seemed to have never spoken to a woman before, and no one else. The good news is that with an i Phone with an interval time app, three dozen cocktail napkins, thirty-some single Jews, and a live mic, speed dating is not that hard to run.
