Microblog Mondays – Small world

venue. So I was convinced to attend a speed dating event this saturday.
I was not too keen, I had done it once years ago and it did not work out too well. And I find it is too much pressure, just having 5 minutes to decide wether you want to see the person again or not.
But this time it was an event organized by a Meetup group for single people and the organizer sent me a private message to try to get me on board. They didn’t have enough women so they made it free for women. And I was curious about the venue, so I signed up for the event. Morning to loose, right?
The weather was horrible and a lot of people canceled their attendance just one hour before the event só We were only 12, only 3 women. And when I chatted with some guys I realised one of them had worked in the same place as me, two others and the organizer had acquaintances in common.
I’ m waiting for the results, but if those guys don’t want to see me again, it may be a bit awkward, as we can bump on each other socially.
Come to think of it, I don’t have too good a feeling about the results, because even if the conversation flowed once the speed dating per se was finished everybody moved back into their trenches.

  1. If nothing else, you gave it a chance and tried something new. Staying home wouldn’t have accomplished either of those. At the very least, it was a success for giving you an interesting idea to blog about.

  2. I echo Lori above — if nothing else, you learned what works for you or what doesn’t. And who knows how it might turn out next time with more people or different people.
