A novice to speed dating, I wasn't sure what to expect last night - I was curious and hopeful. The event was held in a swanky bar, the lights were a little high, I suppose I was thinking of a dimly lit, velvet clad basement bar littered with candles and it certainly wasn't that.
I was disappointed that I didn't fancy any of the twenty men, which in turn was strange as I can usually find something about someone to fancy.
It was a nice polite event, after the first three, I turned to autopilot, although my mischievous side at half time managed to down two very strong cocktails, the second half got a tipsy 30-F-London.
After the event finished and the bar's music system doubled forthwith, I got speaking to the bloke who made me genuinely laugh. Within twenty minutes he had covered pornography and masturbation without any suggestive comments from me, his candid attitude was refreshing and as I was going to leave he kissed me and the kiss was so strange, it was like what one could only imagine being kissed by a Labrador, saliva everywhere!
I think speed dating is a good idea and could be great, but dependant on immediate chemistry.
