With mounting work pressures, one is left with hardly any time to socialize, which is perhaps why speed dating is the latest craze today.
Speed dating is all about meeting different people at one place for a few minutes or so.
Wow, we have so much in common…) ———- Am I the only one who’s a liiiittle sick of all the small talk that is requisite in dating? Last week I read an article in the NY Times about a woman who, with a man she was on a first date with, decided to try to fall in love by going through a list of tested questions that get supposedly progressively more probing and exposing.
(No, you can’t possibly like both.) What’s your favorite number? At the end of the questions they stared into each other’s eyes for four minutes.
That’s all great because I truly believe that a major issue in dating is the objectification of the other – forgetting that they are, in fact, completely human, just as you are.
And so any attempt to help us remember that, no matter if we decided to go on another date with them or not, is welcome in my books. When I started reading through the questions, I didn’t like them.
Being well prepared with engaging speed dating questions will not only ensure full enjoyment of the evening, you can actually learn a surprising amount about a person from even the most seemingly trivial questions.
We don't want you to see this as a job interview, but you do have to make a good impression in 3 minutes, as well as learning as much as you can about your date.
