I have four times now witnessed hundreds of people go on hundreds of dates in only a few hours.I’ve then analyzed their post-date opinions about each other, and paired them off. I organized literary speed dating events at the bookstore where I work.Smile Approach your speed dating partner with a frank and open smile and you are sure to hit off with the right note.Nothing improves a person’s appearance as a real smile and the positive feeling it generates can go miles in creating a good impression on the girl before you.Although I have not been speed dating myself, organizing and witnessing speed dating led to some interesting observations and reinforced some trends about courtship.For the uninitiated, this is how our speed dating works: 35 or so women and 35 or so men sign up for the event, and we set them up based on age and literary interest.Even better, they allow you to meet and engage with a large number of women in a short period of time, maximizing your opportunity to experience a spark.Speed dating still comes with its fair share of challenges so keep these tips in mind before delving into the game.
Speed dating is an efficient alternative that lets you meet and interact with potential dates, in person.
Each participant went on 10 to 14 six-minute dates.
Since each woman would not have the opportunity to meet every man, and vice versa, because of the size of the event we also offered a post-official-dating mingle time for people to hit on each other the old-fashioned way.
However make sure that you are not faking it or coming precariously close to a leer.
Be natural and sincere and your date is sure to be charmed by your smile.
