Speed Dating tricks and tips
Warsaw Social is hosting English speed dating events in Warsaw this year. It is difficult to speak with every single person in a club or bar, but speed dating breaks this rule. Like it or not, you WILL speak to every single person in the room. If time is as important to you as meeting the right person is then speed dating will be perfect for you.
What is speed dating?
Speed dating is a social format of meeting lots of different people in a set location. You sit one to one with a person of the opposite sex for a set amount of time (between 3-5 mins). After this time is up, your host will move you to the next table and you continue the process until you have spoken with all the people in the room.
Speed Dating Tricks and Tips
Yes, speed dating is a group event but it doesn’t mean that it’s not an actual date. It’s really like having about 20-30 first dates and you should definitely dress appropriately to make the ultimate first impressions.
I always tell my clients that their clothes should make them feel like they are the hottest person in the singles market and it’s true. If you are wearing something that makes you feel attractive, you will naturally exude confidence. Others will recognise it and will find your confidence attractive.
Show Up on time
Try to show up at least 20-30 minutes earlier than the event start time. This will give you some time to register, get familiar with the venue and mingle around. This is also perfect opportunity for you to get to know the event hosts and ask questions.
Building a relationship with your event hosts can be of huge value if you are truly on the hunt for a new relationship. If your hosts know the type of person you are looking for, we may be able to point you in the right direction by initiating pre-event introductions with other participants.
Take a ‘breath’ before each Mini-Date
Just like any date, you should go in with an open mind and make an effort. Try not to let the events of the last date, good or bad, influence the direction of the next one. Give your attention to your current date and use it as an opportunity to engage each other and get a feel for them.
Be Open Minded
We often categorise others into ‘my type’ and ‘not my type’.
When you are attending an event like speed dating you are bound to meet different people with different attitude.
It is very important that you meet them with an open mind.
If you go there with an image in your mind of a person you may like, you will always end up comparing the guys you meet with the one you have created, who does not exist at all.
Coming out of this preconceived notions and meeting all with an open mind gives everyone a fair chance.
And who knows you may end up liking someone you would not have otherwise thought of?
