Speed Dating makes you a little bit more social. I don't go out much and normally stay late in the office. City Date made it easier for me to meet someone outside of my circle. The event was very possitive, no pressure. All people were very nice. Thank you for good organization too.
Experience Speed Dating
When you go to your first speed dating event you'll want to make sure to be yourself. Dress like you would for a date, unless otherwise specified, and be prepared with some topics that you can bring up if conversation gets a bit stale. Great topics to talk about are the weather, your career, where you grew up, and what you like to do for fun. Of course, you will not only want to talk about the things that you do and like to do in your free time, but you will also want to ask your dates about these things as well.
It's important when you go into the speed dating experience that you are relaxed and you don't expect to meet your soul mate there. The fact of the matter is that you may meet your soul mate, but it's better to not have that sort of expectation. Simply go with the expectation that you may or may not meet some people that are worthy of another date or two. When you approach the situation like that you will be happy when you meet someone that really seems to be someone special.
Speed dating is supposed to be fun, so concentrate on the element of fun. Even if the person that sits down across from you is not attractive, is not personable, and is not at all interesting, make the most of it. The easier you make your interactions with each person the quicker time will go by and the next person may be just what you have been looking for!
It's likely that your speed dating experience will fly by. You may be a bit uncomfortable in the beginning, but after a couple rounds you'll find yourself fitting into the routine quite well. Just try to relax, and remember to be yourself!
