When you write a dating blog, speed dating is part of the territory.
And so for the last 2 years, I’ve attended more speed dating events than I can count. ‘Elite’ speed dating, silent speed dating, blind speed dating, paper bag speed dating, cycle speed dating, literary speed dating … But no matter the gimmick, it always seems to come down to the same brutal truth. Speed dating originated in 1998, and was set up by an American rabbi, as a way for young, single Jewish people to meet one another.
BBG, Is the email you listed in your post one from Meetup that was sent to someone you know?
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.
'Cause someone stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes.
Is that a tic-tac in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?
In fact, you can have them right now, they're out in the car.
Have you always been this cute, or did you have to work at it? Excuse me, I don't want you to think I'm ridiculous or anything, but you are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen.
Girl, you gotta be tired 'cause you been runnin' through my mind all day. Your eyes are bluer than the Atlantic ocean and baby, I'm all lost at sea.
'Cause Honey, I just keep gettin' lost in your eyes. Hey baby, you must be a light switch, 'cause every time I see you, you turn me on!
of time worrying about being more attractive to women.
