Speed Dating

All right, I have three excuses for not having heard of this: I don't watch Sex in the City, I don't watch Providence, and most importantly I'm happily married. It turns out that single city folks are attempting to find true love in a hurry—in eight minutes, to be precise. Their approach is known as speed dating or eight minute dating, and it's discussed today in this USA Today article. Metafilter user rrtek posted the article a little while ago and user sodalinda followed up with a link to this madcap description of the experience which is also well worth the read.


“So how does it end?”
“You keep dating and eventually you forget..."

So true.
