Speed dating new york
It’s hard to imagine longtime New Yorkers signing up for speed dating, but maybe the transplants have the right idea.At the very least, it’s nice to know there are still those out there who believe enough in finding love (or at least second date) to dress up on a Monday night to sit in a Union Square hotel restaurant and have a conversation with strangers -- without an app, and without being six beers deep.After every “date,” you write down that person’s name on the card and rank them based on how likely you’d be to date them again.
On Tinder, there’s no way to judge mannerisms, tone of voice, height (very important in the online dating world), and really, overall personality.
People filed in one at a time and checked in with the hostess, who cleared their name from a list and handed them a card for keeping track of dates that night.
After I was sure enough that the people at the restaurant were there for speed dating, I rose from the bar, took a seat on the ladies’ side of the tables, and waited for my first prospective match made in heaven. Women sit on one side of the table while men rotate from seat to seat in front of them. After five minutes, the men move to the next seat, and so on.
