Then they take you to a technology conference next week! Know what they are and what to look for so that you don’t waste your time or theirs. If you immediately look around, and decide, "There is no-one here for me", or "These are not my type of people", you have already closed your mind to being successful. Be playfully curious about what the night might bring. If you go in with a pre-determined outcome, you are unnecessarily stressing yourself out and will likely be disappointed.
While you are trying to remain open minded and perhaps going along with all of this so that you can learn more about what makes this person tick,or what they see in all of this, you havejust subconsciously chosen to enter into this relationship on a false pretense that may ultimately result in a rejection scenario you could have avoided if you were simply honest with yourself and the person across the table from you.4. For instance, if you are an animal lover and one of your speed dates can’t get enough hunting, listen to that alarm going off inside your head and recognize it as one of your deal breakers. You may reject some people during your speed dating event and you may also be rejected. It means that there really might be something there! You may just meet someone who connects you to the love of your life! Remember, you are meeting many people and connecting with several of them who could become a part of your life in other ways than dating.
When you write a dating blog, speed dating is part of the territory.
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.
