Northwestern speed dating
There were many graduate students who were over 30, a little too much of an age gap for a 23-year-old, and a lot of women with thick accents.It wouldn't have been a problem except that 60 people talking at once in a confined space makes for a difficult auditory experience.The next day, I was informed that I had no matches but had three who picked me though I didn't pick them.My curiosity got the better of me, and I've e-mailed them. Maybe sometimes two minutes just isn't long enough.
The night included free snacks and the opportunity to date more than 30 bachelors or bachelorettes.This was my chance to take stock and locate my priorities. Because of time restrictions, the event ended an hour late and yet I only got through two-thirds of the women there. I'll never know, but I wish I had picked a better starting point to maximize the number of women I met that I found immediately attractive.It's not that I'm superficial, but if there's zero attraction, there's zero chance.I soon found the most important part of the event is the group mingling before the event.For about a half-hour, all the speed daters talked to each other in a lounge setting while enjoying cheese and wine samplings.
Some speed dating events have an age range for participants.
