The entire walk over, I repeat to myself, “You can leave anytime you want, you can leave anytime you want, you can leave anytime you want.” I consider throwing up in the alley next to the bar but think better of it. At the bar, I meet a somewhat cute guy who nervously asks me if I’m here for “the event,” because clearly saying “speed dating” to a girl at the bar would be too mortifying. Back in the room, there are now two girls, three men who seem to have never spoken to women before, and a handful of men cute enough to maybe make out with drunk in a bar. I decide to check back in with the hostess, only to find a very cute guy in a nice suit gesticulating wildly and demanding to know where the heck the organizer was. It’s now 30 minutes past the time that the event was supposed to begin.When I get inside, the hostess gestures generally toward the back room. The organizer maybe should have read those emails about arriving 30 MINUTES EARLY OR YOUR SPOT WILL BE GIVEN AWAY.

I answered the email with “Obviously you should go because it might be hilarious.” (Tag = OVERTHINKING IT).

as if it was some sort of freakish accident, but it wasn’t really.
I very deliberately did not date because I had some stuff to work on, and I was busy, and, well, I can procrastinate like anything. My half-Vulcan jerkbrain kept trying to talk me out of going, so I made a list: The only real cons were that it would be a decidedly hetero evening (bi-invisibility = meh) and oh the CRUSHING TERROR. (9) Some of the attendees were too terrifyingly awesome for words.
Some questions I have thought of are:1) Since we don't have much time, do you mind if I go to right to the big questions I have for you?
2) Tell me what you think would be an ultimate first date? If this were a dating site, which category would you put yourself in? If you think that's good you should try meeting people daily in real life. I've never been to one of these, the reason being that I don't want to pay for it as I am not overly serious about finding anyone - I'd be more into it for the entertainment of it. So the ladies did not get their fair share of one to one time dates.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.A member of the opposite sex has to talk to you for at least four minutes, and so this encourages the most nervous types of daters.People who wouldn’t normally approach the opposite sex in the real world. But the problem with speed dating, is that often the women who are attracted to speed dating events are VERY different to the men. When you write a dating blog, speed dating is part of the territory.
