Are you single and ready to have an amazing time meeting other singles in your area?
If you are not signed up by then you must show up at the event 30 minutes prior to the start time and pay in cash including a late fee.
Unsurprisingly, there were over twice as many men as women there.
The other guys were actualy more fun and cool then the women.
I wish I had just gone to hang out with the other guys; because they were more interesting to talk to then the women.
Given the small amount of time you spend with each prospective date, the conversational skills required are pretty much the same skills required to leap into a conversation with a stranger at a bar: if you don't get their interest in less than a minute, you'll never have it.
To be honest, if you have those skills, you're better off avoiding speed dating events altogether and just talk with strangers instead.
A lot of the women aren't really serious about meeting someone; they just doing it for an ego boost or they are board and want to do something fun with their friends. Everyone either goes for laughs, to 'get back out there' (practice essentially) or as support for the latter person.
After doing some thinking, I concluded that it would be cool to see what kind of people would actually come to this kind of event.
I wasn’t interested in dating anyone, but was more curious about whom I would be meeting at the event.
Usually though the number of men who want to hang out is much higher then the number of women. But if you tried online dating and are looking to try this because you thinkg you will find success here; I don;t think it's for you. It was a little awkward, but I looked at it as practice for future first dates.
The experience messed with me because I was a decently dressed, in shape, normal guy with a job and time after time got no matches. I wasn't thinking of it as an alternative to online or any other kind of dating. That being said, your last bit at the end about taking it more personally kind of sticks out to me, i suspect it might end up being the case for me as well :/thanks for the tips.
