Do you know what speed dating is? Have you ever experienced it? If not, I am sure you’ve seen a few speed dating events in the movies.

Well, speed dating is actually pretty popular in modern culture. You live a busy life and you simply don’t have enough time to go on long dates or to waste your energy on many wrong people while trying to find the right person.

All of this makes speed dating the best choice for you! It is a dating event which gives you the chance to meet new people and to presumably find your potential partner. But there is a catch—you only have a few minutes to talk to each one of these people and to decide whether you like them or not.

Even though speed dating is a great opportunity to meet many new people in one place and in a short period of time, it can often make you feel lost and tongue-tied.

After all, you are trying to present yourself in the best possible way, you are trying to find out as much as possible about the person sitting next to you and you are trying to determine if there is some chemistry between the two of you. And you are doing all of this simultaneously, in a time-limited frame.
