My straight, white, cis, male social profile is the most common there is, so I found many potential matches at the event, but those looking for a “less common” social profile might find some of these events frustrating in their scope of potential partners.
The night of Adam: Without being sure what to expect, I was definitely nervous prior to the event.
The ladies sit for the duration of the evening, while the lads move from lovely lady to lovely lady every six to seven minutes.

Dating is complicated for any generation, but millennials must contend with the double-edged sword of technology.As in, I conveniently forgot their names.)Rewind two weeks: I'm hanging out with some girlfriends and one of them mentions how she saw a groupon-like deal for speed dating.In my head, I said, "Wouldn't it be fun if we all did that?The men sat down next to us and we'd chat for four minutes each, and then the guys would get up and move one seat down.Bear in mind, if you have any people skills whatsoever, four minutes goes by really fast, so theoretically, there's not enough time for it to get awkward if you don't hit it off.
