Virtual speed dating is just as bad as, if not worse than, in-person speed dating.
It's also worth mentioning that I am a straight cis woman looking to date men and my experience will be based on that. For a refresher on where I stand with dating right now, it's not a priority for me, nor am I on the immediate hunt for a boyfriend. But after a year of staying away from apps and dating in general, I have finally decided to put myself out there. Since dating apps kind of suck right nowI'm curious to see if there are better alternatives. I've never attended a singles event in person, nor have I ever done speed dating — so I had no idea what to expect from this.
But to my surprise, it was easy to find a local Zoom speed dating event going on for single twentysomethings and thirtysomethings in the tristate area. I went into this event with zero expectations and with an open mind. I kept reminding myself as I contemplated ditching the event that I was here for an experience and to try something different. But once I was in the room, I knew I couldn't back out so I stayed and listened to the chirpy moderator. She explained that every couple would enter a breakout room and chat for five minutes before everyone came back to the main screen where the moderator was.
Then, everyone would go into another date. Ding, ding, ding! Twenty-one questions guy was my first date of the night. Of course, the conversation was full of small talk and awkwardness. We covered the basics of how old we were, what we do for a living, and which state we lived in — and this guy was coincidentally from my town.
The five minutes flew by but not because I was enjoying the conversation. Really, it was because he did most of the talking and I let him have the spotlight just to eat up time. One guy, who was 10 years older than me and I'm pretty sure was drunk, sensed sarcasm in my tone when I answered his questions. But to be honest, tipsy McGee was the eighth rando I spoke to that night and I was over it.
So yes! He was correct about my sarcastic tone. He told me how all of his friends are already "hitched and with babies" and how he'd love to show me around Coney Island. It was a no for me, dawg. But then right as our timer was about to go off he quickly asked me, "What's your favorite animal?
Because that will say a lot about you. It was an interesting experience to say the least! It's definitely a Saturday night I won't forget and TBH, I let out a good laugh once the event ended and I closed my laptop for the night. If anything came out of it, it was an hour of chatting with strangers, having some sort of human connection, and everyone agreeing that the dating world right now is once again weird and wild.

I'll be honest: Going into it, my hopes weren't that high. If you do a quick Google search, you'll see that the amount of online dating events for singles that pop up is pretty comical. Warner Bros. Share This Article Facebook.What speed dating is like
