Now you might be wondering, how does one speed date? Speed dating is a quick form of dating, designed for meeting multiple individuals in a short amount of time.
It is a formalized process in which the participants are broken up into pairs and rotate partners every 3-8 minutes (depending on the event).
After every “date,” you write down that person’s name on the card and rank them based on how likely you’d be to date them again.
At the end of the event, you pick the top people you were interested in and return the card.
During the event, you will meet up to 12 women, in 3-8 minute dates, in less than 90 minutes.
After I was sure enough that the people at the restaurant were there for speed dating, I rose from the bar, took a seat on the ladies’ side of the tables, and waited for my first prospective match made in heaven. Women sit on one side of the table while men rotate from seat to seat in front of them. After five minutes, the men move to the next seat, and so on.), and found myself in the restaurant of the Hyatt Union Square.Inside, it looked more or less like a restaurant preparing itself for regular dinner service (dim lighting, candlelit tables), rather than the morose, clinical vision I had concocted of name tags, clipboards, and other trappings of business conferences.We allow 1 or 2 people of each gender to attend a younger age group, provided there are seats remaining once registration closes on the day of the event.If this is something you are interested in, you must email with your name, age, day time phone number, event city and the date of the event you would like to attend.
