Well yes it is actually because it is much cheaper to attend a speed dating session than to visit all the bars and cafes in New York to see what contacts you can make.
Meeting the right person depends on getting out there, meeting, greeting and appraising. Jerry Seinfeld has called it an hours long job application.
Because speed dating gives you the chance to meet so many people quickly, it lives up to it’s name.
However you need to be realistic. Your chances of getting a date is 6%. And your chance of getting a long term relationship is 4%.
Who Says? It’s one of the many facts derived from an academic study and quoted in Glenn Geher’s Book ‘Mating Intelligence Unleashed’.
As long as you’re not hooked on instant success, speed dating does make it easier to meet lots of partners in a short time, so if you’re serious it’s worth it. LIKE dating.
