Speed Dating

The whole concept of speed dating is to make an appealing impression with multiple people in a short space of time. As a successful speed dater, you need to charm ten people in sixty minutes (six minutes per date). Asking the right questions when speed dating is the key to keeping the conversation flowing and gaining your dates interest.

The build up to the event usually produces quite a bit of anticipation, however it’s essential you keep a casual and relaxed outlook about the whole idea and try not to hold too many expectations about finding ‘the one’ straight away. Speed dating is a great alternative to meeting people through online dating sites. A number of speed dating events are often organized through singles dating sites and it’s pretty common to meet people on the night of the event that you may have already chatted to through one of the various free dating sites.

The following is a list of questions to find out how well you may relate to others and how they react to topics which are important for you in a potential partner. Make sure you speak with conviction and confidence, this in itself is a very attractive characteristic.

  1. What are you hoping to achieve from tonight?
  2. Do you believe in love at first sight?
  3. What is your most precious possession?
  4. Which season of the year do you prefer?
  5. Are you a believer in reincarnation?
  6. Is there anything that stands out in your mind that you would like me to know about you?
  7. What kind of relationship are you looking for, casual or long term?
  8. Have you been single for a while and how long was the longest relationship you had?
  9. What would be your dream job?
  10. What about music, who is your favorite musician?
  11. What kind of work do you do?

Not all these questions will send the right message to everyone. Some people may think it’s a little forward too soon, however there is every chance you will appeal to a number of your dates with this approach and will send a message that you are a no nonsense person with a clear direction in life.

The whole idea of speed dating is to get to know as much about your ten dates in the six minutes allocated to each date. By taking a forward and decisive approach, you definitely up the stakes in finding compatible people at the end of the night.
