    Default Thread in which you talk to me about speed dating.

    I told my good friend I would go with her to a speed dating event tomorrow night. I'm actually not in the market for a girlfriend, but I thought it might be entertaining given the amount of people who are nuts here in Burque. And my friend didn't wanna go alone. I don't even think she wants to meet anybody, she just wanted to do something random.

    So here's what I'm wondering. Should I take this thing seriously so as not to cheat some of these women out of their money? Is there some sort of speed dating etiquette that I should know about? If I do treat this as a gag, how should I approach it? Speed dating stories? I don't know, discuss.

    I didn't think it really existed outside of sitcoms.

    It was like $15. I was so oddly curious that it was worth it to me. I have a little money to blow right now

    From what I have heard women usually are free and the men have to pay. I have never done it myself, I don't think you can get a real vibe for someone in 10 minute rounds, all you can get out of it is if you want to eventually see that person naked. Although I think it would be fun to create a different personality for each person you encounter. I just don't know that I could do it with a straight face.

    I did speed dating a couple of months ago for a charity event. It's SOOOO much fun. There are a couple of awkward conversations, but they don't last long.

    I like the suggestion of developing a persona for each woman you talk to. Go with that.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    my friends tell me I need to write a book in which each of my weird ass dates get their own chapter. We have even created nicnames for each weird ass date. So even if I remain single forever, if I continue to date I might at least get a best seller out of it.

    That's a really good suggestion. I could do it with a straight face I'm pretty sure. I was thinking about being really dark and asking my "date" about death the entire time. Maybe come across as a borderline pedophile with another persona. Though she may call the cops with that one. Any persona suggestions?

    I'm also likely to follow Ivy's suggestion about not being a dick, even though inventing personas is a little dickish. Oh well.

    ha ha ha, yeah, my friends can't keep track without nicknames, such as:

    • covert operations
    • drum and bass
    • new york
    • the idiot/elephant dick
    • blind date guy
    • rainbow brite
    • "masturbation is getting kinda old" guy


    and persona's are fine as long as you're not being outright mean.

    You might show up and be surprised to find someone really special seated across from you. If not, try to work "fisting" into the conversation as often as possible.

    pedophilia is never funny. I went out on a date once and the guy had a nervous tick/snort thing going on. I think you should develop some nervous tick for some of them, and others just ask insane random questions about their bathroom habits.

    Tommyboy, before you go just get a sheet of paper and a pen. On the paper write "backdoor beauty?". Slowly show her the paper right at the begining and smile.

    Dr. Gonzo will be proud.

    Speed Dating seems like a random sex with no strings attached selection process smorgasbord.




    which is awesome.

    Some of mine include:

    • leg humper
    • plastic bag guy
    • pre-jack
    • star trek guy


    There are more but it would require a bad stroll down memory lane.

    i didn't, my friends did.

    the night before my friend D's wedding, i went on a date with this guy who was friends with a girl named alecia who used to post as "shy violet" on these boards as a matter of fact. this was the date i was talking about at gordon biersch where he proposed before dinner was even over.

    well, we ended up getting SUPER trashed. and i wasn't about to have a bad date without some sex, so i let him come home with me. we were going through my movies and he decided of all things to watch rainbow brite. so we watched a bit before i finally just got the deed over with, which was awful and i should have just sent him home before that. he slept the night and i kicked him out about 6am since i absolutely hate sleeping with people and he was obviously more into me than i was him (sorry, sorry, i know, i shouldn't have even slept with him, lesson learned).

    the next day at the wedding, my roommate decides to joke in front of EV-ERY-ONE of our friends at the wedding that my date and i had been watching rainbow brite (since she saw the case in the living room). so after that, everyone kept talking to me about "rainbow brite".

    as a sidenote, this other guy then starts telling everyone about covert opertations... that was my fuck buddy. he had once texted me while we were both at a club asking when we could leave, i texted back that we could leave now, but that we had to be "covert" about it. this friend saw the text over the guy's shoulder, so he thought it would be funny to keep talking about "covert operations" during the wedding after the rainbow brite thing. THAT one i STILL TO THIS DAY HAVE TO HEAR ABOUT and i haven't fucked the guy in almost 2 years.


    hopefully the speeddating will end in better stories than these, lol

    You're wrong, LC. A well-placed pedophilia joke is funny. I'm not sure about nervous ticks because I'd have to keep it up the entire night. That's why different accents are out of the question. We have a winner with asking about bathroom habits. Maybe questions about color, consistency, shape.

    Good point. Since I have nothing to lose, maybe I should go for the "wanna fuck?" approach?

    OK so here is a question, a bit off topic but hey, thats me. If you go out on a date with someone, think he/she is cool, have a great time, go home with him/her and the sex is horrible, but everything else about the night was great, would you continue to see him/her or would you cut your losses and move on?

    your "i don't give a fuck about this" attitude will make you the belle of the ball!

    and loca, if the guy was awesome, i'd give it a few more tries. sometimes the first go sucks.

    I agree with Ivy, women can smell desperation, if you act like you don't care they will all want you.

    depends. do you think you can mold them into the sex partner you want? if not, move on. unless you hate good sex, then youre good.

    Well in the case I am thinking of I just don't see it getting better, ever. So I have pretty much decided to cut my losses. But then again I am selfish so I was just curious what others thought on the subject.
