The one I went to had more women than men, not sure if that is normal. I had dinner with 2 of them and it just didn't work out..I think they were qulaity dates (better than some of the ones I've had with guys from on-line sites). But you know it was fun to get out and meet people even chatting with the other ladies that were there was fun. I wonder if it would be a good idea to bring index cards with your vital stats written on them, and hand them out to all the dates you meet there.
They'd probably really appreciate it, think you are super organized, and love not having to ask you all those screening questions they are asking everyone else.
I first found out about speed dating by seeing it on an episode of Frasier.
After Googling it, I saw that there are sessions in my general area.
I might want to do this again, if the event occurred on a Friday or Saturday or Sunday night, instead of the weeknight I went. The mistake I made at my first speed dating event, was I ended up dominating the conversation with all of my questions and the woman did not ask enough questions about me.
I am not interested in dating divorced, single mothers, because I am not a divorced, single father. I had asked them if they had any questions for me, but they had just a few of their important questions (such as, "What do you do for a living?
But I wonder if that should be considered a last resort.
Not all people are suited in social areas of life to meet other people in traditional ways. Bitter Sweet, I had your same thoughts and feelings before I went to my first speed dating event.That moment when you meet someone (male, female, whatever) and get that tiny insight into who they are.I just really love that - so I really wish speed dating had been bigger when I was single.You're right about coming up with screening questions ahead of time.Six minutes may or may not be enough time for us to learn enough about each other.
Once on a blue moon I thought about it because it seems to directly address what I think is the main reason I haven't found someone: I don't meet and get to know enough new people.
