Richardson wants to see you find a perfect
match. His method is speed dating.
According to Richardson, current dating methods
leave more than a little to be desired. From
a shy personality to a fear of rejection,
to yet a larger and more prominent fear of
embarrassing ourselves in front of strangers,
dating has never been an easy task.
Blind dates require putting your trust int
a mutual friend to determine your compatibility
with a stranger. Girls face guys leering at
them in bars, then staggering over in a fashion
which he may think is something akin to a
sexy swagger but is nothing less than drunken
stumbling. A guy will spend the better portion
of the night chatting up a beautiful girl
at the bar only to hear "let's be friends
" as the night ends. Online dating is
full of risks. Who is really on the other
Reese's organization OrganizedFlirting.com
gives you the opportunity to meet 10 like-minded
singles in a relaxed, pressure-free settimg
with a good vibe.
Events, currently in English only, are being
held at Chocolate & Love Lounge Bar (148,
XinYi Rd., Sec. 4). Pre-registering--online
or at the bar--is required. Participants are
greeted at the bar and given a nametag, a
brochure explaining how the evening will proceed,
and a match sheet.
After a couple of quick introductions by the
coordinator to break the ice, a bell rings
to signify the beginning of the first five-minute
date. After five minutes, the bell rings again
and the guys get up and move one seat down
the line, so that they are now sitting in
front of a different girl. At the end of each
date, each participant secretly marks a "hit"
or "miss" on their match sheet,
according to whether they wish to see the
other person again or not.
A break is taken midway through to grab a
drink and mingle. Dating begins again after
a 20 minute interval. At the end of the event,
all the match cards are handed to the event
coordinator and any matches (both people mark
"hit" for each other) are e-mailed
to participants the following day.
