No, that is something I have never done!
It was not around when I was younger, single, and dating, or even older, single and dating!
I don't think it is really something I would like to do as I do not like small talk and I think that is what you would have to do for speed dating?
I have never done it. It sounds like something fun to do if you are just looking to date. Not sure it'd the best way to find a lifelong spouse although I'm sure there must be some success. I think it would be good to boost your confidence if you are not so good at meeting people
No, but it would be fun to try, if I were single. It would be an interesting way to meet new people....an experience. Certainly wouldn't expect to meet Mr Right. It would be a good tool to have to sell yourself in 10 minutes ( or however long it is ). That's exactly what you have to do in job interviews. Such skills are valued in jobs such as business, sales, and advertising. Even if you don't get a date, you could possibly advance your career. I have known of jobs that have this speed interview technique.
No, I could never make myself do that...I mean even if I wasn't married! I think more people do 'on line dating' these days, as my youngest daughter did. She found her last 5 b/f's on line. the 1st she was with for 9 years, (he was nice) 2nd, 3rd & 4th didn't work out, but she's been with the 5th 1 for nearly 3 years, & he's wonderful.
My daughter met her hubby online . . . well over twenty years ago . . .nothing but text on a chat screen. No FB, no Instagram, no Twitter, no Tinder - they weren't even dreamed of . . . just good old words . . .like a pen pal. Life was a bit nicer when it was only a DOS screen. Sometimes I think Windows is a curse :-)
I haven't done this but I never say never, who knows what is around the corner. I am not sure I want to ask and tell the same things over and over on the one night in such a short time??? I just did a quick search and there seems to be plenty of sites doing this! You get a card and write down yes or no, the organisers match cards at the end of the night and you take it from there. You get to eat and drink during the night too...simply another way to find partners safely.
No, this is not something I would like to do.I am too shy for this sort of group get-together. I know some friends who did it for fun, and they did have a really enjoyable time, and while they said they met some interesting people, because they were just there for fun, they did not meet the one of their dreams!!!! I think that for some people, this could be a good way to meet a lot of new people without any expectations except maybe finding new friendships.
