While I have been on enough dates over the course of my lifetime, something about the idea of the conversing with so many strangers within a short time frame unnerved me.
My hair kept sticking to my stupid name tag as I pulled at it in an effort to combat my nerves, and I yearned to beam myself back to my safe cozy bed, as far away from all these old dudes as possible.
Alas, this was a non-option, and, before I knew it, the first guy sat down in front of me.
It appears that speed dating – the very same dating format that once inspired SATC’s Miranda to pretend to be a stewardess for the sake of male seduction – is still a real thing, taking place on the island of Manhattan.
That said, when a coworker recently asked me if I wanted to sign up for speed dating, a form of organized dating that my “prehistoric” brain could actually comprehend, I figured I had nothing to lose (except for Marina’s respect, apparently.) A few clicks and later (that’s right, the chance of meeting the love of your life comes with a hefty price tag that can, apparently, buy you 5 months on Raya) I was officially registered for NY Minute Dating, a service that described itself as “the best speed dating NYC has to offer,” responsible for organizing “the most successful and talked-about speed dating and singles parties in town.” A video clip on their site showcased B-roll footage of enthusiastic singles immersed in blossoming bar romances.
They all looked quite satisfied with life – who knew, maybe I was next!
Sure, the idea of having dozens of three-minute conversations in one night can seem awkward, but it's also a great way to get yourself out there.
Although plenty of us have turned to meeting someone over cyber space, there's still something to be said about sitting down to meet potential partners in person.
