Don’t let the term Speed Dating
stump you. It is simply a chance to meet several new people at one go and finding the one that clicks. Speed dating is all about finding chemistry in those few moments and here’s how to crack it:
1) Make a quick impression
Shortest speed dates are for 3 minutes and the longest ones are about 20. To shine among others in a short span, dress attractively, look well groomed
and put on your best smile. Run through the body language checklist
to know how she is likely to read you.
2) Respect the rules
Most speed dating events keep participant information confidential till there is a mutual match. Don’t haggle for phone number, email address or hang on to a person after the bell has gone off. Show interest but respect the rules.
3) Don’t get personal
Talking marriage, asking her opinion about kids or the count of her exes is a no-go zone. Same goes for sharing your personal details, life plans, work-out routine or stuff which makes you come across as too informal, weird or desperate.
4) Cut the boring
As the name goes, time is of essence at a speed date. Instead of talking about your day job or asking where she lives, get noticed by asking her fun stuff like the first thing she did when she got in. Get creative, crack a joke and flirt a little. And no, don’t ask why she’s at a speed date.
5) Don’t be disheartened
There is a chance the one that set your heart racing won’t choose you. Don’t let it disappoint, there will be other chances. Go to a speed date to have fun and meet new people without expecting a lot.
