I am not sure if this has been talked about before, if it has I apologize

I was invited to a speed dating event in DC and I was wondering if any of you had gone to one and what was your take on them...

If you really want to meet someone, I suggest trying everything. You want to put yourself out there as much as possible. Go for it, and good luck!

I know couple people that have done it, but I never have. I'd probably try it, but generally it takes me more than 2 minutes to know if I'd want to go out with someone.

I see what you mean... but at least I can see what is out there, right?

I did it once. You had 5 minutes to talk to each guy and there were 10 guys. My main complaint it was pretty obvious some of the guys were much older than the age range for the "round".

I did like one guy and we ended up going out 2-3 times. Didn't work out in the end but hey that can happen under any circumstance.

I probably would do it again but seems most of the places where I live now charge too much money for my liking. The last time I did it I paid $10, most of the ones here are charging $45...

That is another thing to consider, I was actually invited to two, one is charging about $50 and the other one about $30.

Do you think the more expensive one would be better organized? perhaps it would have better looking people? idk...
