You can have seven or more first dates without paying for them. In fact, speed dating events won’t even cost you what one dinner date would cost.
It’s not entirely based on the size of your paycheck or the kind of car you drive. If your pay stub is not the highest in the room, that probably will not be obvious, although it could come up at a later time.
You don’t have to worry about being stuck with a loser for hours. Seven or eight minutes is tops you spend with any one gal.
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 women at speed dating events; few media stars attend.
