What to do at speed dating
You have just enough time with each person to decide whether or not you like them - you only get given each other's contact information if you both agree and consent to this.
Everyone has varied backgrounds and interests who may rarely get the opportunity to meet many new single people in one go.
I vowed to go in with an open mind, and if I didn't come out of it with a date, I'd at least have a good story.
Fast Forward to last night: My girlfriends and I show up to Xino in Santa Monica, dressed up, and ready to make snap judgments about the eligibility of strange men.
Today I am, because I make the rules and I can change them if I want to. Uh, because I went speed dating this week, and chances are, you're probably curious about what that is/whether it was fun and if you should try it, and I've got your back. (Note: I've taken measures to protect the some of the innocent, stupid, and/or ridiculous people I met last night.
Also, this story involves complete strangers, and therefore, is unlikely to come back to haunt me.
As in, I conveniently forgot their names.)Rewind two weeks: I'm hanging out with some girlfriends and one of them mentions how she saw a groupon-like deal for speed dating.
Use your Speeding Ticket to make notes at the end of each date ticking the people you like and potentially want to see again.
