First and foremost, speed dating eliminates pressure – pressure of giving out your phone number even when you don’t want to, pressure of avoiding awkward pauses in conversation, pressure of telling your life story to a stranger you just met.
You won’t get stuck with the date that never speaks or the date that talks non-stop, because every date just lasts a few minutes.
Granted, you may not get as much time as you’d like with the person you do enjoy, but you have the chance to spend countless hours with that individual after the event is over. There’s nothing more exciting than meeting a ton of new potential dates in one evening.
And even after the event, the suspense of finding out who has put you on their interest list is thrilling.
For this reason, they benefit from quick dates; they know what questions to ask, and after just a few minutes, they can usually tell if there is potential for a relationship, romantic or non-romantic.
Perhaps the increasing need for companionship is to blame, or maybe the adrenalin-pumping nature of the event makes it so attractive.
You won’t feel any pressure, and you certainly won’t be stuck with a bad date.
If you are not interested in a profile, no problem… If both you and your potential companion express interest in one another, then we will introduce you two! Other popular speed dating companies include Hurry Date and 8-Minute Dating.
Of course, you don’t want to divulge too much personal information to a perfect stranger, but you can politely answer the questions and simply move onto the next topic.
When in doubt, smile and nod – fear not, a new date awaits you in just a few minutes! Hopefully, your date will not engage in political discussion or religious differences given the short amount of time, but as mentioned before, be prepared for anything.
