Match speed dating
Back in the naughties, when the idea was novel, speed dating events attracted large diverse crowds.Up for a laugh, people embraced the novelty, and tried it.
Guys are the hardest ones to attract, and confident, attractive guys are the hardest to attract, because normally those guys can walk into bars any night of the week and chat to women.
In general, women will turn up in groups, and be more relaxed and confident about the affair.
Whilst sociable women might see Speed Dating as an opportunity to broaden their pool of options, attractive, sociable men very rarely consider speed dating an option (unless they’ve been dragged along by a friend).
And so you often end up with a load of attractive, sociable women, talking to more awkward, a-sociable men, who they would never normally speak to. The guys (who most often turn up awkwardly on their own) are out of their depth, and the women end up disappointed.
I’ve seen women walk out of speed dating events before they even start.
