Ah yes, the virtual nature of 21st century dating. Fortunately, for those of you who still believe in the merits of face-to-face interaction how quaint , there is another option out there. Speed dating, which was invented in the late s, is an in-person version of Tinder. Based on your impressions, you check off yea or nay on a score sheet, and wait to hear back from the company about matches.
Flirting actually does take practice. Yes, there are people who are natural flirts and ooze effortless charm, but for many others, flirting is a daunting endeavor. My own attempts at wooing often fall somewhere in-between clueless and ridiculously absurd. I used to think that I was a hopeless case until I realized that, like any skill, the more you flirt, the better you get at it.
Speed dating is a great option for getting out there, chatting with new people who are as nervous as you are believe me , and building your confidence. And you just might meet your true love. Your gut knows something. But when we met, we immediately felt at ease with one another.
