By Kelly Collis from the Tommy Show
Jen and Kelly from the Tommy Show along with one of our new friends from the show headed to a frontier that many have tried and some believe it is only urban legend. But it exists…Speed Dating. Here is how it works.
Check in is at 7:00 and you can meet the other singles in the bar. Around 7:20, they corral the singles for the “dating” portion of the event. The men seat across from the women and each man will speak face to face with each woman for 4 minutes before each man rotates down one seat. The rotate until every man has met every woman. You receive a pencil and score card to take note on your “dates”.
After the event, you can mingle with who wants to stay. And one of us ended up going to dinner after the speed dating event. They hit it off and contact info was exchanged. Then part 2 happens…
Within 48 hours after the event, you get access to an online dating system. It allows you to send messages to anyone you met that night without us releasing anybody’s personal contact information. And happy to report all 3 women from the Tommy Show entourage got an email of interest from a man.
It is exhausting to talk with so many people at one time but if you are up for dating and meeting new people, it is definitely worth $30 to do it.
