Elite speed dating review
And so you often end up with a load of attractive, sociable women, talking to more awkward, a-sociable men, who they would never normally speak to. The guys (who most often turn up awkwardly on their own) are out of their depth, and the women end up disappointed.
I’ve seen women walk out of speed dating events before they even start.
All our events are held at great, chic venues which are centrally located.
They are lead by an awesome and experienced Event Host who explains how the evening unfolds and guides the guests every step of the way.
And organising something that doesn’t feel like an interview – an activity where you engage with others more naturally. If not, then don’t go – go to something he or she finds fun instead.
Ice-breakers are useful, but you want to be sideways on and doing something which you can chat about, not forced to sit face to face in clinical booths, literally judging each other on a slip of paper. If you have a certain ‘type’, then look at your friends, and find the friend who most resembles that type of person. Yes, speed dating can work – but only if you’re the type of person who NEEDS a bell and a tick sheet to talk to a stranger for 4 minutes (but won’t get intimidated by the situation).
This allows one to make a proper first impression and discover if there’s chemistry right off the bat, all without wasting precious time. You create a simple profile on our website (it’s free to do so), answering a short questionnaire with details about your yourself, your interests and preferences in an ideal match.
Whilst sociable women might see Speed Dating as an opportunity to broaden their pool of options, attractive, sociable men very rarely consider speed dating an option (unless they’ve been dragged along by a friend).The unfortunate reality of singles events (and this applies all over the world) is that women will always attend.Guys are the hardest ones to attract, and confident, attractive guys are the hardest to attract, because normally those guys can walk into bars any night of the week and chat to women.I’ve even seen a woman raise her score sheet above her head at the end of the night, and demonstratively rip it to shreds … I’ve seen men break down in tears, struggle to find conversation topics to last 4 minutes, and most recently one guy admitted he came regularly to speed dating events because it’s the only time women will talk to him!Even if you aren’t the most socially confident person, speed dating can be more of a bane, because the nature of it – a short 4 or 5 minute judgment, sitting face on with a stranger in a forced environment – can make it feel like an interview, and make you even more nervous and awkward.
