Speed dating in new york dating italian women melbourne

06 Nov

After I was sure enough that the people at the restaurant were there for speed dating, I rose from the bar, took a seat on the ladies’ side of the tables, and waited for my first prospective match made in heaven. Women sit on one side of the table while men rotate from seat to seat in front of them. After five minutes, the men move to the next seat, and so on.After every “date,” you write down that person’s name on the card and rank them based on how likely you’d be to date them again.

What makes speed dating in New York so interesting is part of what makes New York so interesting to begin with -- you’re able to meet people from all over the world, from different backgrounds, with all different kinds of careers, interests, and experiences (and best of all, they’re all right there, in one room, in front of you).

You wouldn’t get that at speed dating in Kansas, and certainly not at a bar in Bushwick.

As New Yorkers, we’re constantly complaining that a city with over 8 million people can feel so ridiculously lonely.

In September 2010, Los Angeles group LA Lords sold out both sessions of its first foray into the New York gay speed dating market, and in November, the LGBT Community Center hosted its first Lesbians of Color Speed Dating night.

To make the chance for a match as likely as possible, this popular gay men's speed dating option breaks things downs by age and type for each session.
