You’re obviously familiar with the concept of speed dating, even if you’ve never tried it.
That’s an event where you “date” new people for five minutes or so until a bell, or gong, goes off and you move along to the next table and your next assignation.
Start-up companies now meet with investors, pregnant couples interact with doulas, and homeless dogs court potential owners, all using the speed-dating format.
Some years ago I caved to my curiosity and tried it out myself. When the little buzzer went off after three minutes, I often found myself still trying to explain to my bedazzled dating partner why my last name has four syllables (it is Dutch).As you might imagine, I did not find the love of my life.I made some beginner’s mistakes; however, I am not alone in having struggled with speed dating.An elderly woman died and five other women pensioners living in a nursing home were today in hospital after swallowing dishwasher rinse they mistook for a soft drink.Six women residents of the privately-run Lady Astor Court nursing home in Slough, Berkshire, were taken to hospital on Sunday following the incident, in which it is believed they mistook the chemical for blackcurrant cordial.I can’t attest to the success of the process since I’ve never tried it.
