New york minute speed dating
We all had little in common, and despite the ‘professional’ tag to the event, and the location, there were very few guys I would describe as being in real professional jobs.
One guy openly admitted to coming regularly because it’s the only time he talks to women, and there was a really limited crowd – just 7 girls and 7 guys, and I got the impression a number of the men were regulars who had been asked late, to balance numbers.
Yes, the shared interest might be a bit extreme to us Brits, but at least it was a shared interest, and you could learn a skill, regardless of whether you fancied anyone at the event.
I went to sign up, and then realised that my search for ‘New York’ singles events had picked up New York STATE, not just New York city …
And That’s Why You’re Single First off, what an awful name for a company!!
Apparently it’s tongue in cheek, and started as an ironic dating blog, but when you’re looking for a singles event, it’s the last thing you want to hear!
I’d assumed from the description online that there might be some group interaction at the start of the night, however, on arrival, the number of people and set up of the room wouldn’t have allowed that.
Instead we were each given a small slip of paper with a chat up line.
If you found someone else with the same chat up line, you could claim a drink at the bar.
Our events offer a fresh alternative to speed dating and matchmaking.
We don't find anything romantic about whistles, name-tags or over-the-top party trimmings typically found at singles events so we have done away with them.
Meanwhile And Thats Why You’re Single seemed to mock single life before it even started, and then was just a complete rip off!
