Speed dating maryland over 40
A couple of participants noted that they met people they liked whom they know they never would have met outside of the "controlled" dating environment. Almost all—I haven't actually done the math, but I would venture around 95 percent—participants had multiple people interested in them but whom they hadn't indicated interest in.
Sometimes, sure, it's simply a missed connection, but I think it goes back to being more open in general.
Some of the people you think you're attracted to are probably jerks, and some are diamonds in the rough you wouldn't realize are awesome until you talk to them.
There's some new research on speed dating, coming from researchers in Germany (Asendorpf, Penke, and Back, in press).
They set up a speed-dating event and invited a total of 382 people (190 men and 192 women) who were aged 18-54 to participate.
I have four times now witnessed hundreds of people go on hundreds of dates in only a few hours.
I've then analyzed their post-date opinions about each other, and paired them off. I organized literary speed-dating events at the bookstore where I work.
