Has anyone ever been speed dating? Any good/bad stories? I have only ever seen sped dating on soap shows and shows telling you how to go about meeting a mate, never been speed dating, looks fun as you do get to talk to loads of different people instead of being stuck with one person all evening

I think it is an extremely bad idea. Unfortunately most people accept or reject a potential partner based entirely on their physical appearance (including me!). Rather than challenging this and moving towards a more personality or character based approach, speed dating takes this instant decision to an extreme. i can think of nothing worse than being rejected by 50 women in 2 hours!

I don't know about speed dating that's organized but I've been able to get dates within 30 minutes of chatting with a girl who is a total stranger. I've done this quite a few times. Does that count as speed dating? Cheers!!

I have personally never tried speed dating. I haven't heard of it happening anywhere around me except on television shows having people doing it. I couldn't imagine meeting someone because you don't get that much time with each person, so how can you develop any kind of interest based on their personality other than their outward appearances.
