I signed up for a Monday night event with Speed NY Dating (because what else was I going to do on a Monday night?
), and found myself in the restaurant of the Hyatt Union Square.
The first speed-dating event took place at Peet’s Café in Beverly Hills in late 1998.
Should there be any mutual matches, the organizers of the event will put you two in touch.
You can go through the list of females in your neighbourhood to browse through their pictures.
As for the trains themselves, they can seat 556 passengers (22 percent more accommodating than the current TGVs) and have been built with great passenger comfort and more space, rail operator SNCF has said in the past.
After I was sure enough that the people at the restaurant were there for speed dating, I rose from the bar, took a seat on the ladies’ side of the tables, and waited for my first prospective match made in heaven. Women sit on one side of the table while men rotate from seat to seat in front of them. After five minutes, the men move to the next seat, and so on.
After every “date,” you write down that person’s name on the card and rank them based on how likely you’d be to date them again.
