Speed dating tipd
However, last week I went to my first ever speed-dating event for a magazine article I was writing and I was surprised to find that – despite many drawbacks – it wasn’t all bad.While I would never recommend speed dating as any man’s sole sexual strategy—it has nothing on good, old-fashioned cold approaching—as an occasional supplement to ones main diet it has its advantages.If you decide that speed dating is for you, or the opportunity comes up for you to try it, here are six handy tips for how best to maximise your chances. When she comes over stand up, shake her hand firmly then pull her in and kiss her on both cheeks.Doing so will demonstrate that you are a confident guy who is not afraid to touch her.Compared to Vegas or Ibiza, this is a walk in the park.Not that the women were anything to write home about – apparently speed dating is a pastime largely favoured by post-wall divorcees anxious to wield a little power again.Don’t stare at her like a loon – allow your eyes to shift to the side from time to time, or better, gaze around the room every now and then – but do imagine giving her the rough and tumble while you’re looking at her.For one thing, from what I observed, the pool of men that you are competing with for the choicest women would appear to be dismal at best.
But amongst the trash there were a few cute girls who I was able to vibe with and obtain contact details from with relative ease.
The other advantage of speed dating – perhaps its principle one – is that there’s no need to approach. This frees you up to concentrate on verbal sparring, eye contact and light touch, and could actually provide the game newbie with a useful opportunity to practice these.
