My new client, I’ll call her Lisa, asked me about the free Speed Dating event that came with her matchmaking membership.
She was a little leary about it, her perception of Speed Dating was not good.
There is no pressure, if you’re interested in someone you mark it on your date card, at the end of the night you present your card with the top people you would like to date to me or one of my hostesses and we look to see if there are any mutual matches, if there are, we will put you two in touch.
If not, you’ll never know who liked you and vice versa, so there are no hurt feelings.
Perfectly suited to our fastpaced lifestyle, this is an dating concept that is rapidly spreading all over the world. Now, out of every 15 similar aged singles you meet, how many do you think you might want to see again? Have you ever been out on an Internet or blind date? Talk about pressure, you start the evening with your heart in your mouth and all sorts of anticipations, but somehow things don’t quite work out – there’s no connection and you just can’t wait for the night to end...
Melbourne has an excellent night life and great atmosphere. The reason why Speed Dating popularity has sky-rocketed is it quite simply takes the time and awkwardness out of dating. Well not at a Melbourne Speed Dating Event, you get to do it in just 2 hours!! Even the fussiest would have to pick at least one or two!!I vowed to go in with an open mind, and if I didn't come out of it with a date, I'd at least have a good story.Fast Forward to last night: My girlfriends and I show up to Xino in Santa Monica, dressed up, and ready to make snap judgments about the eligibility of strange men.In 2009, Laura was the co-host of Rogers Television show “Dating 201”.She currently hosts the Dating and Relationship Radio Talk Show Sunday nights at 9pm on AM640.
