You are welcomed by a host when you arrive who will supply you with a scorecard and name badge.If you’re early, you can enjoy a drink and relax while the other speed daters arrive.Our pre-agreed game-plan: We’d mention no names or other identifying characteristics of those we encountered; we’d focus on our perceptions of what happened; and we’d relay whatever we learned about the experience as honestly as we could (so others might benefit from our mistakes). It doesn’t matter how good a people-person you might consider yourself to be, only a sociopath would enter a speed-dating venue without a certain level of trepidation. These events invariably take place in a pub, so it’s pretty easy to become a littlerelaxed and forget that you’re going to be talking to 15 women you’ve never met before (some of whom you may even want to try and impress).In other words — we went speed-dating so you didn’t have to. That said — it’s not quite fight-or-flight territory, more fight-or-hide-in-the-bathroom. Humiliatingly, organisers generally make everyone wear name-tags — but that aside, with such a volume of people you’re invariably going to find it difficult to keep track of pretty much any other personal detail they impart if you’ve a few scoops on board.Speed dating events with Ditch or Date in Cork are run each month for single professionals of similar age groups.This is so that when you attend an event you can be guaranteed that you are going to meet people who are of similar age to you.Once all the speed daters have arrived the Host will get everybody to sit down at the table with the same number as the badge they are wearing.
