Exclusive Events London - 10/12/18 - Christmas Speed Dating!Let us
I found myself walking through London "mentally" swiping yes or no to everyone who sauntered past me. Try a new hobby Undeterred, I moved on to my next challenge: I took my housemate, Charlie, to a boozy mini-golf night. Our inevitable unsuccessful attempts had us all in hysterics. BBC Three Although I was still nervous, after that initial approach, chatting to Rob note not Harold, as I'd guessed quickly felt as easy as talking to a mutual friend at a house party.
We exchanged numbers and have been chatting ever since.
I pictured professional, like-minded Londoners who'd signed up because they were too busy to go looking for dates, or perhaps even people who had "app fatigue", too. The awkward atmosphere of a party dedicated to the unlucky in love was downright painful. And while I tried chatting to another guy stuffing a burrito, he seemed more interested in the buffet than cracking on to me. This also meant I had to openly admit that I needed help with my love life, which was almost as scary as approaching strangers.
After hours of double-blue-tick anxiety, one friend finally came through. She gave me his first name Toma photo, and told me to head to a bar that night at 7: Of course, I really wanted to look him up on every social media site in order to prepare, but then I reminded myself that this was supposed to be real life.
LONDON’S ALTERNATIVE FESTIVE EXPERIENCE
Tom was slightly late no biggieand we immediately got chatting about American politics. I remembered the advice James had told me when meeting someone for the first time: You want them to be intrigued about you and want the chance to find out more. He was funny, asked interesting questions, and showed me that dating IRL can be fun. I guess therein lies a downside to dating apps.
Swiping yes or no against hundreds of people fuels the need for perfection, which actually doesn't exist. I had barely left the bar when Tom texted me to say that he had a great time.
High five to me.
