I went into speed dating for the wrong reasons, and I went into it at a time when I didn't realize being able to talk to 60 women was a chance to improve myself socially, the way the Korean daters probably did.
If they're not, then you have a very awkward stretch of time to fill up.
After seeing all these people, you appraise them and score them on a card.
While the events were lighthearted and fun, the realizations I had about myself and about speed dating in general were not.
This is the story of my time spent speed dating, and why I decided to give up this method of finding a meaningful relationship.
I dated 60 women in two months, and I was not any happier or less single as a result.
I met these women through speed dating events set across two years.
I want to know what a meaningul relationship means for that other person, and whether our individual thoughts on the matter align.
To that end, I'll ask people out, or get help from friends to be introduced to new people.
Speed dating is the dating craze that is fast, fun and safe.
