Speed dating???? does it happen in CH?
sure it does... but they schedule it 3 months in advance, and you have to pick what you will want to drink when you sign up.

Re: Speed-dating - thoughts?

Speed dating's fine, providing you can control the constant sniffing and nose scratching, teeth biting and grinding and slow down on the incessant, constant, meaningless, garbled rambling, delivered at machine-gun pace, and let the other one get the occasional word in.

And, the last but not the least, if you don't show up on the scheduled date, you'll be put on the blacklist. 3 no show-ups, and you'll be blacklisted for your lifetime, AND NOBODY WILL EVER SPEED DATE YOU AGAIN!

What happened to the romantic idea of just running into somebody, by pure chance..

That's how it happened to me, pure chance, nothing pre-determined or high pressure situation like speed dating or the bar scene scenario. But this was back in the good ol' 80's....

I'd never go to one.
I heard that is not convenient to go alone, so bring some friends with you as to make the experience less horrifying.

Re: Speed-dating - thoughts?

I've tried speed dating a few times, but the windrush and the cops chasing us down the freeway makes one helluva noise and I can never figure out what the girls' saying.....

"He was a hard-headed man
He was brutally handsome, and she was terminally pretty...."

Re: Speed-dating - thoughts?

I think I'd need to take some *speed first before even entertaining the idea of such a thing!

On a more serious note, it all sounds too stressful from the get-go...

*(As drugs are a no-no in my book the chances of that happening are less than zero).

Haha! Yeah, now that would be a sight to behold, eh?! Someone at a speed dating event whilst under the influence of said drug with the same name!

Dude, let me know how you get on. Hehe!

Re: Speed-dating - thoughts?

I have been to a speed dating event about 2 months ago in Winterthur because I wanted to see how it was and I wanted to investigate whether it would be something that I would like to organize. I am still walking around with the idea because I think it is a great way to meet a lot of people in a short time, especially for people that have a time consuming job. What do you think, would there be any interest?
