Singles who are smiling and laughing give off positive energy and attract others towards them.

funny questions to ask at a speed dating event-32

One of the best dating tips I give guests is to avoid talking about work too much at singles nights. Although it’s nice to hear what people do to get a sort of background picture, don’t spend your precious 4 minute speeddate explaining how you’ve just taken on a new really complex finance modeling system which is bound to boggle and bore your date.

You want to be memorable and have 4 minutes fly by and leave your date wanting more.

You don’t want your date to feel like time stood still while they cry on the inside.

It’s more interesting to find out what people do when they’re not at work. Like spending Sundays pottering around vintage markets?

You will be rotating, meeting upwards of 10-15 dates in one night, therefore it is important for you to maximize your time with each date and learn as much as possible about them by asking speed dating questions.

How do you know what questions to ask if you only have 5 minutes per date?

This may seem like really obvious dating advice but this really is the most helpful of all tips for speed dating!

You’ll be surprised how often guests say “I liked so and so but they were a bit serious about it all”.
