We moved from the bar and into the booths. Sixteen people ranging from ages 23 to 40 — one man for every woman — lined the walls of the bar. I'd soon come to learn there were men from all different walks of life. Pretentious suits from consulting firms. Thick-accented FOBS from India. The women were dressed in their best business-casual attire. Two Russian chicks who were already drunker than drunk indiscreetly ridiculed the men with their snarled lips and harsh intonations.
Their gestures alone spoke volumes, but Bella overheard them: They were desperate for green cards. I got comfortable in my seat while the organizer dictated the instructions: Each woman would have four minutes with each man. That's enough to be either a really long conversation with a cringeworthy dude or a really short conversation with a great one. The bell rang, and we began.
My first date was a decently attractive guy from Rochester. He was nice, but he didn't have an edge. I didn't circle his name. The next few men were seemingly carbon copies of one another. From what I gathered, none of their personalities were distinct in any way. I won't lie — a few men got lost in the mix. I also wasn't doing a good job of hiding the fact that I was scanning the room for Camden. They both made me laugh, so I circled their names. And then, I looked up to find Camden. We continued our conversation from earlier — he, asking me what I do for fun, and me, telling him my weekend plans.
Before I knew it, the bell rang, signaling us to switch dates. Camden told me he'd like to meet up in the future, if I'd have him. But they all have their disadvantages and they take time What fun is it to wait around for someone to talk to you in a bar or when you're out and about? What fun is it to risk rejection over and over again striking up conversations with people you don't even know are single?
What if the conversation goes well, what about the awkwardness afterwards with asking for phone numbers? With Pre-Dating, you meet up to 12 and sometimes more single professionals in less than 2 hours. Think of it as a series of "facilitated introductions" just like when you go to a party with a good host. Afterwards, if there's interest you discreetly circle on your interest sheet who you would like to hear from again , you'll get an email with links to contact these event participants.
