Speed Friending | Feb XX, 2017
Finally getting this show on the road! Looking for any suggestions on location -- see our discussion board, or post here. Will set a date once we have location nailed. Targeting week of Feb 6th. Join us for our first fun, fast-paced friending event. Paired in dyads, you and a new fellow speed-friending compatriot will be given questions to get to know each other. This facilitated 1:1 meet and greet gives you the opportunity to expand your social network through real dyadic person-to-person interaction. Conversations are free flowing, but with the safety net of suggested questions.

    What we're about

    Want to meet new people but don't know where to start? Are you put off by the prospect of attending a social Meet Up due to the fear that everyone will already know each other? Are you new in town or just looking for new friends? Do you hate rhetorical questions? Then maybe Speed Friending is right for you! We're looking at setting up a Speed Friending circuit -- a regularly meeting happy hour that includes a section of the evening for "Speed Friending." Modeled after Speed Dating, yet lacking all the awkward "Should I kiss him/her now?", Speed Friending gives you the opportunity to meet new people in dyads -- "...the most intimate and concrete level of peer interaction" (Source: Wikipedia -- this ain't a college essay). This facilitated 1:1 meet and greet gives you the opportunity to expand your social network through *GASP* real person-to-person interaction. Conversations are free flowing, but you can always revert to the suggested questions provided by the same goober who wrote this Description. So feel free to sign up. With enough interest, we'll organize our first few events around the schedules and locations of participants. I leave you with a quote... In the words of Orville Wright, "Yes, I know this is flipping crazy. But with enough gusto, I'm sure we can get this darn thing off the ground."
