Have you ever heard of speed dating? It's an opportunity for people to quickly meet a large number of people to date potentially. Attendees are paired with each person attending the session for two minutes. At the end of the two minutes, the people move to their next partner.

I showed up here with big expectations, curious about what speed dating is really like and hopeful I might at least meet someone intriguing. Now it's 10 seconds into Date One and I fear this was a terrible mistake. I came here tonight with the hopes of meeting my next boyfriend. In truth, I came here hoping for a funny story, something I could joke about with my friends as I recalled the things I do to try to salvage my struggling love life. Apps are exhausting, life is hectic, and I can never seem to attract the type of men I want to meet.
Have you ever thought about going speed dating? It's something I never really said out loud however it's definitely something I was always curious about. The whole concept of speed dating is pretty interesting.
