Speed dating belfast northern ireland Chat para adultos
Raising a family single-handedly, longer working hours, less socializing and financial restrictions mean that for many, the traditional ways of meeting potential suitors are being replaced with online dating and social media sites.
The redemptive tinkle of the ‘three minute’ bell the only thing punctuating the inevitable failure of your stuttering sequence of non-sequiturs. The long walk to the next table, the next woman and the next humiliation. Then there’s the calamitous consideration that just a couple of tables along might be an ex.
The truth of the matter is, once the terror subsides and the free glass of bubbly kicks in, speed dating is actually incredibly addictive. The neat modifications that the QFT make to the format, such as women moving from table to table to the men as the movie theme of the evening, makes it all the more enjoyable.
The format of three minutes a go and no expectations turns out to be fun, as you meet a string of very nice people who mostly have a sense of humour - a definite pre-requisite for doing this in the first place. One person tells me off for straying from the QFT-imposed rule that we only talk about movies, saying, improbably, that she hadn’t any response prepared to being asked if she’d done this before. And the screening of definitive romcom , on its 20th anniversary, is also a nice touch for a singles’ bash, although how the movie’s happy ending went down with the auditorium of hardened singles I don’t know.
Happily though, I was bolstered by a couple of rather selfless friends offering to join me on the evening 'for moral support'.
Even then it took a couple of stiff drinks and not a little cajoling to get us all moving in the direction of the QFT.
