Preferring a 'less is more' environment devoid of typical event trappings.Gone are the name-tags, shouting and over-the-top party trimmings.
Today I am, because I make the rules and I can change them if I want to. Uh, because I went speed dating this week, and chances are, you're probably curious about what that is/whether it was fun and if you should try it, and I've got your back. (Note: I've taken measures to protect the some of the innocent, stupid, and/or ridiculous people I met last night.There is no official start time to the speed dating portion of the evening - we like to wait for all daters to arrive, to have a moment to settle in with a refreshment and mingle should they wish.Our personable hosts will assist you with your Speed Portland 'Date-Mate' Scorecard. Also, this story involves complete strangers, and therefore, is unlikely to come back to haunt me.As in, I conveniently forgot their names.)Rewind two weeks: I'm hanging out with some girlfriends and one of them mentions how she saw a groupon-like deal for speed dating.
