Speed dating experience
Happy hour food will be available to all participants and a cash bar.The evening will begin with a fun creative activity to break the ice.And the whole time you are wondering if she is even single? It is him just 10 years after that picture was taken and now you are stuck sitting through dinner with this guy when you know the attraction is not there. I can assure you that all participants are single and interested in finding a relationship.Or let’s switch to the blind or the almost blind date when you only viewed a picture of your date. You don’t need to think of a pick up line or a way to get their attention because I promise you will get 5 minutes of one on one time chat with this person and make your perfect first impression.I’ve tried all the methods you’ve heard or read about when it comes to meeting romantic potentials. I can honestly say, I’m still not completely sure, but I’m leaning towards brave.In high school and college I joined different clubs and organizations. I’ve smiled and said “hello” to random guys at Target, the grocery store, the mall food court. I took my time getting ready- I curled my hair and put on a cute little black dress (very casual, but still a black dress, which you cannot go wrong with), traded my glasses for contacts, and did my makeup.Meanwhile guys, you make the rounds, aim to impress, perhaps bribe a rider for a special lady’s attention and charmingly vie for her affection. After all, when’s the last time you really went carousing with some of the city’s most eligible singles?
All the while, ladies, we crack jokes, pick up on your hidden quicks and dig up a little dirt to better match you to a worthy date.This morning, I got my matches from the event’s organizers. You know what it is like when you are sitting at a bar!It started raining- hard- halfway to the restaurant and I wondered, “Is this a sign? Unlikely, I had to walk 2 blocks in the rain in flip flops to find the right address and was convinced I was going to slip and break my neck before I got there. When I walked in the door, I immediately regretted the decision to come- but it was just a momentary panic, dread in not knowing what the hell I’d gotten myself into. It took a while to start because more people came in, but when it finally did, I took my place at “Table 4” and waited for my #4 counterpart to join me. I found myself smiling and laughing through most of it- I actually had fun!Should I turn around, go home, put on my pjs and snuggle up on the couch with Glee and a mug of hot cocoa? Have I mentioned before that I have the worst sense of direction? So there was no way I was going to find the restaurant on the first try driving in the dark in the rain- and I didn’t. I knew that most of the guys were not men I’d ever want to see again in a romantic setting, but they were all friendly and kind.
