Who do you connect with - who are you instantly attracted to?
Whether you find them physically attractive or not, you have the same four minutes of your time to give to them; there is no swipe option in speed dating.
Doing this can open a surprising world of new friends, and even a potential partner that you have found a deeper understanding of.
There are certainly advantages that speed dating has over online dating.
The main one is that the superficial ‘first glance’ really counts for very little in speed dating, whereas in online dating it is everything.
And if you let yourself relax a little, you can really enjoy the experience whether you meet someone who matches you perfectly, or not.
