Con Speed Dating
Posted 8/13/15
Hello,


A event in Chicago, Wizard World, has a Speed Dating event Thursday. Has anyone ever experience a con speed dating event? Are they fun? Did you ever meet people again after the event/ How do they work? Good personalities?

I am debating on giving it a shot this year.

Thanks

MIke

Yea went to a speed-dating event a week ago, it's pretty fun if you don't expect to score with someone, I think that's the worse mistake. In the event I went, you would just rotate every 3 minutes and get a different match

Go with high expectations and very low hopes. That is always the way to do things.

I observed a blind cosplay date kind of thing at the last con I went to.

I think I saw one or two of the tens of couples actually enjoying themselves.

The speed dating thing feels like a strange concept to me.
It's based on judging a person by the first 30 seconds of meeting them and comparing them with a large volume of people.
Surely having a large number of people will give you a good perspective of what's on offer and out of those, how many like you in return, but could you imagine someone understanding you well enough in such a short time? 15 seconds to be fair.
It's not really dating, it's telling people you find attractive that you're available.

True buts better than than just waits of the question " what if" you got to take that chance if you want to end up with someone or just better to let other women know " hey I'm here " lol it will be fun better than wondering there is nothing to lose only gain

I always found speed dating to be hilarious. I would go for the laughs and to stir up some random conversations with strangers for fun.
