Organize speed dating

I want to be honest and therefore will not crash the event planned for 47-year-olds.” Another woman wrote, “Please tell me what it is wrong with being over 35? I found another “olde taverne” type setting and arranged an event for the 42 to 54 age range. Offering free coupons meant this event would be pro bono for me—it would cost me money, actually. I did not blanket suitable suitors on but instead read every profile in this age range and explored their interests and personalities.

Try to find or create an arena where people can talk in relatively private spaces, at tables or on couches. This may be the largest part of organizing the event, since guests are coming with the goal of meeting other interesting guests.

Curate your guest list carefully, keeping an even gender split and remaining mindful of guests’ sexuality.

Not only do they provide a chance to find love, but they are also great for socializing and making new friends, and they can be very fun, too.

Speed dating events can be run by large companies such as bars or clubs, or by local individuals who have time to spare.

You should only host the event on your property if you’re comfortable doing so, and you know the guests or at least know people who can vouch for them.

If you’re inviting strangers, you might want to book a private room at a restaurant or the meeting room of your church.

If you show up expecting a freak show, you will meet a sideshow act.

If you approach your encounters mindfully, you may find a rare common interest or a shared passion.

I spent more time researching dates for these women than I ever did for myself. In the 24 hours before the event, I was out four, almost five, women.

One wrote me the day prior asking if she could still get a refund, and I explained that because she was confirmed this was not the policy.

“This indicates to me that they were not seriously looking to meet anyone and they were just there because it was a free evening. To those of you newly looking, or still looking, or in the midst of packing up your bells and staplers, I say: Keep an open mind.
