Spanish speed dating game
For some reason, I never thought of how heteronormative traditional speed dating is: It’s all straight men going from table to table to meet straight women.In our cases that’s fine, but I did start to think about how inclusive and welcoming an environment it could be. That was one of the first things we realized during the pre-event process: These events cast a wide net – even our age range was between 24 and 38 – and there is no telling what kind of group you’ll wind up at your event.The men sat down next to us and we'd chat for four minutes each, and then the guys would get up and move one seat down.Bear in mind, if you have any people skills whatsoever, four minutes goes by really fast, so theoretically, there's not enough time for it to get awkward if you don't hit it off. It was fun, there were appetizers, and the hostesses were lovely (and all foreign model/actress types).My straight, white, cis, male social profile is the most common there is, so I found many potential matches at the event, but those looking for a “less common” social profile might find some of these events frustrating in their scope of potential partners.The night of Adam: Without being sure what to expect, I was definitely nervous prior to the event.
With such busy lifestyles, speed dating is a highly efficient way to meet the most amount of people in the shortest amount of time.Like Jamila Woods sang, “I’m not lonely, I’m alone.And I’m holy by my own.”Pre-event Sadé: I’ve always wanted to try speed dating, which seemed perfect for a Valentine’s Day story.Fast Forward to last night: My girlfriends and I show up to Xino in Santa Monica, dressed up, and ready to make snap judgments about the eligibility of strange men.We were each assigned a number and given a card with three columns printed on it.

I’ve tried the apps but, like Adam, have gotten mixed results. On one hand, I’d love the companionship or even a very consistent friend with benefits, but I’m also content in my singledom.
