Majority of us are quick to judge. One of the things we easily dismiss as for losers or people who are “ugly” is speed dating. Au contraire, we are all about it and because I want to mold you into a better man with better perspective, I am going to tell you why you should give it a go.

Clearing out misconceptions

Contrary to popular belief, speed dating shouldn’t be labeled as for the desperate or for the less attractive. In fact, you’d be surprised as to how many good-looking men and women go to this gathering.

They’re just like you. You’ve worked so hard establishing yourself financially and doing your best to become successful, that you just didn’t have the time to find your ideal mate. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s quite honest when you think about it. You simply want to meet someone whom you might just spend the rest of your life with.

Back to basics

Today’s technologically driven world has made us obsess over online dating, social media and well, simply swiping left to find our next prospect. I personally like to kick it old school, to bring it back to basics when it comes to human interaction.

In 5 or 7 minutes, you’re going to do nothing but purely talk to a complete stranger. To know who she is in a gist, what interests her and what turns her off. In such a short amount of time, you discover the wonders of pure, unadulterated, pretention-free conversation.

Now, ask yourself: How long have you actually talked to a woman without an inch of distraction from technology?

Honesty is still the best policy

So the 190-pound you types in 165 pounds as your supposed weight in an online dating site. Don’t you realize how you’re using deception as the foundation of a possible fruitful relationship?

In speed dating, you are driven to be honest with that person in front of you because you want to make the most out of the time you have. Who knows? That beautiful woman you’re talking to could actually be the one you’ll finally introduce to your parents.

Compared to anything else, your best foot forward in speed dating is who you really are, which all women will appreciate.

10 Women in an Hour

In speed dating, you will meet approximately 10 women in an hour. Consider those 10 chances for you to search for the kind of partner you’d want to have beside you. In fact, you might have a few revelations and surprises that will help you discover yourself and certain things you never thought in your life would appeal to you.

Besides, you no longer have to play the guessing game as to whether or not she really is into you. You have exactly seven minutes to find out.

Don’t forget the score sheet

Part of this activity is keeping a score sheet. This report will allow you to assess every woman you met in line and how each measures up to you. It’s important to do this because after all, you will deal with 10 women in just an hour.

If you do end up finding someone you’d want to spend time with again, this is when you can get her number and take her out somewhere else.

The clock is ticking and you do deserve to have someone to share your success with. So before you get too hasty on judging speed dating, I dare you to try it. You might just end up referring every single friend you have afterwards.
