Be careful what you eat – Your date would probably not enjoy seeing you gorge on noodles.Stick to small, non-spicy food that you can share with your date.
One of the best dating tips I give guests is to avoid talking about work too much at singles nights. Although it’s nice to hear what people do to get a sort of background picture, don’t spend your precious 4 minute speeddate explaining how you’ve just taken on a new really complex finance modeling system which is bound to boggle and bore your date.Use the break time to chat and meet – Some speed dating events allow daters to roam around the place after the event.If you feel that you made a fool out of yourself on someone you like, don’t be scared to make an approach later for a second chance.We have compiled some great tips to help you get the most from your evening.Choose your speed dating event wisely – It is okay to turn down speed dating events that are too publicly advertised or take place in a bar that is known for its wild antics.You want to be memorable and have 4 minutes fly by and leave your date wanting more.
You don’t want your date to feel like time stood still while they cry on the inside.
Make sure that you are meeting in a public place, you told your friend where you are going, and don’t give out your home address too easily.
Give your e-mail address on your prospects – Although it may be tempting to give out your digits, e-mail contact is safer—and more fun—to start with.
You’ll be surprised how often guests say “I liked so and so but they were a bit serious about it all”.
Singles who are smiling and laughing give off positive energy and attract others towards them.
Just let the event (and the attraction) take its course. Speed dating is all about first impressions, and the well-groomed and fashionable tend to get the more positive scores.
