Speed dating events are held across the country, and the time spent on each date ranges from a couple of minutes to 10 or more minutes.
The event I attended lasted more than three hours. All the women lined up on one side of several tables scrunched together, while the men sat across from them and rotated one seat over every two minutes. After going on a "date" with each man, you're given the option of writing his name down. If you both write each other's names down, then it's a match and the event coordinators send contact information to the potential couple.
The concept is great, but after three hours, my throat was dry and the novelty of meeting new people began to wear off. I had no expectations for the night. Speed dating is hit or miss. You can get lucky and find dozens of potential dates in one night, or walk out with none. When I heard we'd talk to each potential candidate for two minutes, I thought that may not be enough time.
But after the event started, I realized quickly that two minutes were -- at times -- far too long to talk to someone. My first few two-minute dates were disappointing. One of the first men who sat across from me said he'd come to the event for the free food. I thought, "Oh, great! Some speed dating events have an age range for participants. This event had no such stipulation, which meant that I was sometimes talking to a man in his early 30s and other times I was talking to a first-year graduate student who was At 28, age doesn't matter to me, but maturity does.
My very last date told me he wanted to meet someone younger than himself. He proudly declared that he'd just turned Guess I had no chance there! Although the age range among dates wasn't too impressive, it was refreshing to have a room full of intelligent and diverse dates. The longest two minutes of the evening -- by far -- occurred when I sat across from a guy who was wearing sweat pants and smelled a bit ripe.
Perhaps he'd just worked out -- I don't know. But I can definitely say it wasn't a turn-on for me. I asked each date a standard question: By the end of the night, I was getting tired of asking the same question all the time, but it at least gave me a clue about what the man across from me was like. I was dismayed at some of the responses such as "hanging out and going to the bars" or "sleep" , although it made eliminating the guy much easier.
Some of the men had really good answers, like hiking and attending IU Jacobs School of Music events. Speed dating is an easy way to meet dozens of potential dates in one evening. It's great for someone who is busy or doesn't feel like getting off the couch to find love. But it can also be the perfect way to dash all your hopes if you get zero matches. No matter what though, it is a guaranteed way to have fun for a couple of hours, and there is something thrilling about meeting dozens of new people in a span of several hours.
