Are you considering trying speed dating for the first time? If so, here is some speed dating advice to help you have a successful evening. With only less than 10 minutes to impress up to 20 suitors in one evening, it can be nerve wracking meeting so many people in such a short amount of time as well as trying to impress them as well! Tips for speeding dating include;

#1 Be prepared with questions and answers
Just like going to a job interview (a pretty similar concept really!), come prepared with questions that you may like to ask. Brainstorm about the most common types of questions you are likely to be asked and think of a short response for each. Best to have answers ready rather than stumbling for words when you only have a few minutes to make that all important first impression.

#2 – Dress to impress
There will be many other single women or men who are looking to meet their potential partners during the evening. Make sure you dress well so you can make a good impression to everyone that will be present at the speed dating event. First impressions count so make sure you are well groomed and neatly presented.

#3 – Show confidence
People are likely to be attracted to confident people rather than those that are nervous and shy. Act confident and it eventually will feel like you are actually are. Even if you don’t feel confident, fake it and they won’t know any better!

#4 – Show interest
Be in the moment and focus your attention on the person in front of you. Don’t be distracted by the person who you connected with previously or other people around you. Listen carefully and make sure you ask questions rather than just talk about yourself. The best questions to ask are open-ended questions that will allow the conversation to keep going.

#5 – Have a positive attitude
Keep an open and positive attitude when you enter the speed dating event. You may think when you first get there that there is no one for you and that you won’t have a good chance of meeting someone because everyone is more attractive than you however once you start having conversations with the other speed daters, your initial reservations may change and you will find that you may connect with one or several people!

Speed dating is a good opportunity to meet and possibly connect with lots of people in just one night. Making a good first impression to the other speed daters is probably the most important aspect to a successful evening. Follow the speed dating advice as above and you’ll have a good time meeting multiple singles at the same time and making some good connections on the night!
