Twenty-five Dates has been around for 13 years and reviews say they have connected people from all over Canada.
They host multiple events for various ages and sexual orientations. When I picked up, I could hear Christine saying, “What did we just do???
Men and women will sit across from each other, knee-to-knee, for three-minute mini-dates.Are you new to the dating scene or re-entering the world of singles?There are many different ways to meet people…online dating, through friends or volunteering.Each person spends six minutes of “get to know you” talk time with a partner.If you would like to see that person again, you check off his/her name on your match sheet.Yet until now it has only been available to younger people with a cut off age of 55.How it works: Compared to online dating which can be an isolating, monotonous experience of scrolling through hundreds of 4” x 4” profiles all striving to stand out from the rest, speed dating is a refreshing alternative.Two weeks ago, my friend, let’s call her Christine, and I decided to do something we had never done before: Speed dating.Since speed dating had never crossed my mind, I was shocked when I found myself keen on trying it out.I, for one, don’t date much, so to be actively signing up for many quick dates in the same night was something I never imagined.Speed dating was, therefore, a huge, risky adventure! Christine sent me a screen shot of an e-mail she received from e-Harmony.
