Each pair sits down and gets to know one another, or “date”.When time is up, the coordinator will ring a bell, blow a whistle, or clink a glass, at which point the participants switch seats to meet the next person.
After the “daters” have done a full rotation and met one another, each individual will write a list of who he or she would like to see again.
If two participants have written down each other’s names, the event organizer will forward the contact information to both parties.
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.
I recently read one 55-year-old man’s profile from a website that covers Jewish singles.
He stated that he didn’t want any meshugeners (muh-SHOOG-in-ers), which in Yiddish means crazies.
I’ve gone on too many dates to keep track and enjoyed them all, though I haven’t found that special someone.
It takes time to review all the men’s profiles and their correspondence, but reach out to men who seem more promising.
If no one selects you, or you select no one, you’re invited to participate in another speed dating event until you do meet someone, or you can hire a matchmaker like the musical .
I figure that since I am reasonably attractive, articulate and ask questions for a living, I might have a chance of meeting someone at warp speed.
And even after the event, the suspense of finding out who has put you on their interest list is thrilling.
