Speed Dating Pros and Cons

Posted Feb 10 2009 10:56am

I have friends who love speed dating (probably for the cocktails); they can’t get enough of it. Then I have other friends who want nothing to do with it.

Since the concept seems to be divided I dug into the issue a bit to see about the pros and cons of speed dating. What do you think?

Pros of Speed Dating

  • It’s an efficient use of your time. You meet several  new people in just one night instead of over the course of weeks or months.
  • Speed dating events are usually held in bars. A few drinkshelp take the edge off.
  • You can go with your friends, which makes for a fun night out regardless of the people you meet.
  • No one has to know you went unless you tell them.

Cons of Speed Dating

  • It feels forced.
  • Everyone around you can hear your conversations.
  • Other than age and gender, the people on the other side of the table haven’t been matched to you at all.
  • If you go with friends, you and your friend might end up liking the same person.

Still on the fence about whether or not to try speed dating? Check out our Online Dating Pros and Cons page that compares match making services to online dating.

You never know, you might find that speed dating really is right for you.
