    Default Speed Dating

    Has anyone on here ever tried speed dating(also known as five minute dating or 8 minute dating). This is where you go to an event and you go on about maybe 10 mini dates(it could be more it could be less). I am thinking about doing one of these. However, the thing is they are not cheap(about 35 dollars)and you only get about five minutes with each person. Imo, it's maybe a bit superficial. So what I am wondering is what is a way to be successful at this and what are some good tips. How do you create attraction in that short time frame? I have some ideas but I would like to hear from others(preferably those who have been successful with it). Thanks.

    Try being yourself. If that doesn't work, not much you can do.

    Try wearing a goofy cowboy hat.

    I think the idea of speed dating is great.

    1. It eliminates Approach Anxiety
    2. You only need 5-8 minutes with a girl anyway.
    3. If you can create mystery in those 5-8 minutes she will want more.
    4. 10 women in less then an hour is probably far more then you will approach in a club, if you did do that in a club you would soon eliminate any social proof and come off as a sleaze, but this is an exception as its part of the program.

    The only concern is the type of women.

    I wish they had this in Sydney
    Men, we need to value our time more then we value women. This isn't to say women are not valuable. But who are we to believe in something so illogical, as men we should realize that without our time(life), we would not even be able to pursue women, but only our mother who gave us life. Why do we think we should prioritize them over our time(life) unless she is the one who gives me/my children life. Man is Sovereignty.

    Well, they might not be super hot women but then again they might be. Who knows? I think most of these women are probably looking for stable long term relationships and I'm not so that could be an obstacle. Then again if I make it clear I'm not looking to settle down and am open and honest about it that might be ok with some of them.

    use it as an opportunity to practice having normal relaxed conversation with women. think of it as a way to meet 10 new female friends.

    if you're not comfortable around women yet, speed dating is the perfect way to change that. becoming more relaxed and open around women/people in general should be the single most important goal for any pua.

    So, spend 35 dollars just to have a normal conversation and make new friends.

    I admit it will be a learning experience so I guess that is what I am paying for. The experience.

    the idea is to get you actually talking to a woman for 5 minutes strait. if you're a guy who rarely does so, then speed dating is perfect for you.

    it gives you an opportunity to practice basic attraction and comfort game. you don't have to be stellar to catch a girls attention and get a conversation going. however, its the most basic skill that many men still have trouble with.

    bottom line, use speed dating to work on your fundamentals, and don't be too attached to the idea of dating any of these girls.

    Meteora, is right.

    It would actually be a perfect scenario to test techniques on. Also reinforce them.

But who are we to believe in something so illogical, as men we should realize that without our time(life), we would not even be able to pursue women, but only our mother who gave us life.

    Because if I become attached to the idea of having to date one of them I will probably come across as needy(like almost every other guy who goes to them)and that will kill attraction? So it's best to just play it cool and be detached?
