If you live in a big city or town and aren’t in a relationship, why not go to a speed dating session? They are great fun especially if you feel relaxed and comfortable when talking to members of the opposite sex. Try a bit of flirting to make the evening more exciting by keeping eye contact and make sure your body language is giving off the right messages. You may think speaking to strangers is difficult however once you’ve discussed various topics with the first person, you’ll go from strength to strength. Feel confident but be yourself.
It’s advisable not to be suggestive either, just ask interesting questions such as:-
Keep smiling, most importantly listen. Don’t be too flirtatious as this could put individuals off although do laugh when the occasion arises, it’s always a good ice breaker. Many men and women are tactile in that they can’t help touching the arm of the person they’re talking to. While this is often seen as flirting it can also mean I want to get to know you better. If you feel your speed dating partner is uncomfortable try and restrain yourself!
Most of all make sure you enjoy an exciting speed dating evening, everyone’s in the same boat and the more you relax the more amiable you will become to whoever you’re sitting opposite.
