Speed Dating

Many people out in the dating world just do not have time to go through finding quality people to date. Their lives are just too busy and hectic to take time out to find Mr. or Mrs. Right. That is why such things as speed dating are becoming more and more popular.

It is an opportunity to meet as many as 10 people in one hour. You can have a list of things that you want to ask and most often the speed dating service will even give you a list of acceptable questions to ask, making the initial part of speed dating much easier on you.

There are many misconceptions where speed dating is concerned. Many people assume that this is a dating game for losers. That is not the case. There are many business professionals that just do not have the time to go out meeting people.

It takes a great deal of confidence to approach a complete stranger and test the waters to see if you can date the person. Speed dating eliminates the need for this part of the dating process. All of the people there are there for the same reason so it takes that initial awkwardness away.

When you sign up for speed dating you fill out a questionnaire that lists exactly what you offer and what you are looking for. Keep in mind that you do not want to be too picky as this can eliminate all of your possibilities.

The next step is that you will be matched up with 10 to 20 people that match your criteria for you to meet. You will then meet with the chosen few and spend approximately 7 minutes with each where the two of you can discuss what ever you choose to discuss.

When the night is over you will fill out a form of what went on and who you would like to meet for a one on one date. You then exchange numbers and go from there.

So what do you talk about in those 7 minutes? Most speed dating services have some guidelines that you need to follow but you still have a great deal of choices of what to talk about. Here is a short list to help you get started.

Keep conversation light and be careful. You do not want to run out on a date with someone who is unstable. You do not want a stocker on your hands. Tell him you will see yourself home and do not see him again.
