7 UNDENIABLE REASONS TO SPEED DATE
1. Human connection is everything
Human connection is an innate need that lies at the core of our being. We need to, more than ever before, make a conscious effort to interact with each other, in person.
2. Chemistry doesn't happen in a photo
Chemistry happens in person. You will never know if you’re truly compatible with someone until you meet face to face. This is what Speed Dating is all about. You’re going to an event. You’re going to meet other people, in real life, over cocktails. It brings the human element back to the dating scene, something that is in dire need of a comeback.
3. Your phone needs a night off
Swiping, clicking and staring at a screen is not dating. Put the phone away, be present in your surroundings and meet real people #NoScreensAttached.
4. Switching up your routine is key
Work, Gym, Tinder, Repeat. It’s easy to fall into a repetitive day-to-day cycle and it can feel a little too comfortable at times. Trying something new and stepping out of your comfort zone is a must if you want new results to surface.
5. Your time is valuable
‘Being busy’ has become second nature. Just living day to day doesn’t always leave enough time for dating. Speed dating is one of few opportunities where you get to meet a number of eligible singles, all in one evening.
6. New connections matter
If you want to meet someone, replenishing your contact list is so important. Speed Dating is not about meeting your soulmate, but rather expanding your single social circle. The more people you meet, the likelier you are to stumble across that special someone.
7. Why the heck not?
Sometimes doing things just for the hell of it, without having to be so logical, can be where the magic happens, pun intended!
