Speed Dating, ages 24-36, Single Professionals, Raleigh

This will be the last speed dating event I'm hosting in 2013.  Don't miss out on your chance to meet that special someone with whom to share some quality time over the holidays. --Michael P., event host

I was able to get our group a $7 discount: Just use the promotional code LTBS when you preregister.

So your net cost is only $22.  And they'll have some complimentary appetizers, too.

SPEED DATING IS FUN, AND IT REALLY WORKS!

Here are some thoughts about speed dating, courtesy of speed dating host Chanell Gautreaux, from New Orleans:

Mention the words “speed” and “dating” together in a sentence during casual conversation and you’re likely to experience a wide array of reactions, ranging from outright disdain to genuine interest, or even a sudden burst of laughter. The reality is, though, that most people haven’t a real clue about speed dating or its biggest benefits.

Yes, we’ve all seen the various movie scenes and television commercials countless times, and while those most often paint a less than favorable, if not humorous, picture of the speed dating experience, none of it has anything at all to do with reality.

Here are just a few of the many benefits of speed dating, according to Chanell:

What you see is what you get. One of the most common complaints that single adults have about the perils of online dating is that quite often, the person who shows up for the appointed meeting/date with them doesn’t look anything like their profile photo, or that the physical attributes they listed in their description (e.g., height, body type) don’t live up to the reality of the person standing before them. Speed Dating eliminates that problem altogether, since what you see is actually what you get.

You’ll get face time. How many times have you spotted someone across the room at a club or dinner party and, before you could make your way over to them, someone stopped and distracted you, or another person got to there first?  That won’t happen at speed dating: In fact, you’ll more or less have a captive audience for 5 minutes per speed date--so be sure to make that time count!
