Speed dating

Do you think speed dating actually works? Has anyone here tried it? How do you get to know someone in such a short span of time?

You can’t get to know someone in such a short span of time. But speed dating I feel is a little like judging a book by its cover. So you stay with a person who interests you from the word go. Second impressions do not matter. That is the pressure I guess – how to make oneself interesting and likeable in 5-10 minutes

I know a friend who went for a few speed dating encounters in the city. It was run by this guy who ensured that the people there were all verified and contact information was shared only when both people were interested in taking it forward. As far as questions are concerned, I’d say skip the usual boring ones like what do you do etc. Unless for you the job makes a person. Instead ask them what they enjoy, what brings them joy in life, their dreams and hopes. That can tell you if you share common interests and you can take it forward from there.
