And, speed dating events are short. Single women are not driving home late at night or in the wee hours of the morning.
Speed dating is safe emotionally, too. There is no rejection factor involved in speed dating unless you obsess over the guy you chose who did not choose you.
Speed dating is a relatively relaxed way to meet single men. No more wondering if you will be the only person in the room sitting alone while everyone else is dancing or talking!!
And, it is a good opportunity to check out several single men at one time without having to find them, then go through that many first dates.
You can check them out without being stuck with a loser for hours. Seven or eight minutes is tops you will spend with any guy.
This short period of time also contributes to the relaxed nature of speed dating. First dates, which often start off fine, can disintegrate into an awkward event with both parties stumbling for conversation while holding the other up to unattainable and unrealistic standards. There is no time for that to happen here.
And speaking of unattainable and unrealistic standards, you will meet real people at speed dating events; few millionaires attend.
