Fun speed dating ideas
Some clever people across our nation's capital have come up with some rather alternative speed dating options to remove some of the ickiness from the process, and, yes, have made their speed dates ideas (dare I say it), fun. While this isn't billed as a formal speed date, Speed uk's ping pong dating is for London singles looking for a bit of friendly competitive banter. The following day, your matches are then emailed to you. All within your own personal boundaries though, obvs. Sounds incredibly random, but then again, speed dating isn't your average pastime now, is it?
As an added bonus, the round-robin setup enables participants to meet more potential matches in one evening than they might otherwise encounter in a month or more of traditional dating.
Speed dating has been around since 1999, when Rabbi Yaacov Deyo and several of his single students put a new twist on the longstanding Jewish tradition of introducing young Jewish singles to one another at chaperoned gatherings.
At a speed dating event, participants are paired up in a series of quick five- to seven-minute "dates." When the time is up, a bell or timer is rung, and participants move on to their next one-on-one conversation.
The day it was posted online was the day it sold out for women. Then I personally e-mailed them (after reinstating my own account—on my dime) and discussed the opportunity with each.
I spent more time researching dates for these women than I ever did for myself. In the 24 hours before the event, I was out four, almost five, women.
