Speed dating can be potentially terrifying or hilarious, depending on your tolerance for oddballs of the opposite sex (see: speed dating scene from The 40 Year Old Virgin). However, there is hope. By chatting it up with a large number of people in the same night, the idea is that youre increasing your potential to find someone you click with. Speed dating is perfect for people tired of prolonged and painful first datesthe awkwardness only lasts a few minutes.
