One of the best dating tips I give guests is to avoid talking about work too much at singles nights. Although it’s nice to hear what people do to get a sort of background picture, don’t spend your precious 4 minute speeddate explaining how you’ve just taken on a new really complex finance modeling system which is bound to boggle and bore your date.
And so for the last 2 years, I’ve attended more speed dating events than I can count. ‘Elite’ speed dating, silent speed dating, blind speed dating, paper bag speed dating, cycle speed dating, literary speed dating … But no matter the gimmick, it always seems to come down to the same brutal truth. Speed dating originated in 1998, and was set up by an American rabbi, as a way for young, single Jewish people to meet one another.) you will realise it’s a really fun and easy going singles event with other friendly singles.Everyone is in the same boat – they want to meet new people just like you for friendship and dating. There is a famous saying that goes “smile and world smiles with you”.This may seem like really obvious dating advice but this really is the most helpful of all tips for speed dating!You’ll be surprised how often guests say “I liked so and so but they were a bit serious about it all”.Some examples: Somehow, I mustered up the courage and went in. The group had the entire upstairs to itself, which was nice. This had me more nervous than the whole thing, I think.
