Ny city speed dating

Inside, it looked more or less like a restaurant preparing itself for regular dinner service (dim lighting, candlelit tables), rather than the morose, clinical vision I had concocted of name tags, clipboards, and other trappings of business conferences.People filed in one at a time and checked in with the hostess, who cleared their name from a list and handed them a card for keeping track of dates that night.At the end of the event, you pick the top people you were interested in and return the card.Should there be any mutual matches, the organizers of the event will put you two in touch.Where: The Chester Restaurant (18 Ninth Ave, 10014) Time: p.m. Drink minimum: One-drink minimum (though, the event description notes that if you do not drink alcohol, you can buy a non-alcoholic beverage or food item).A spokesperson from On Speed Dating told Metro that tonight’s speed dating in NYC event is filling up fast — only 24 men and 24 women will be approved — so get your tickets by clicking through to the event website.

After every “date,” you write down that person’s name on the card and rank them based on how likely you’d be to date them again.Everyone was gainfully employed, sociable (mostly), and somewhat attractive (again, mostly).The best part is that, drastically unlike Tinder, everyone there was actually looking for a relationship, or at the very least a second date.Of course there were a few oddballs, like the guy who was obsessed with his karate prowess and kept insinuating that his skills would come in handy to protect me on our pending second date.But that’s how it is in any social/dating situation, and I’m sure there’s a Pink Power Ranger out there who would swoon over his high kick.
