Group dynamics are very difficult to assess - it requires a particular type of personality to front up to a group of strangers as a complete outsider.
Try going into a bar on your own for an entire evening and tell me you don't think people consider you a bit of a weirdo.
Speed dating is the perfect antidote to our own inbuilt prejudices that may just be preventing us from being, dare I say, happy?
5) Because you're a social pioneer - It's amazing the number of people who, after attending a speed-dating event, will turn up a few weeks or months later with a bunch of friends who had previously mocked their decision to go speed dating.

You get 4–5 minutes with each company and then you move on. It didn’t take learn to learn which were successful.
Even if you do find someone who really isn't your type, it's only four minutes.
6) You'll expand your horizons - It's amazing the number of people attending speed dating events in London who tell me how attracted they were to someone they would never normally consider.
They spent most of the conversation explaining why they were content. Unfortunately, most of these people chose to mention this at the very end of the conversation. It’s the equivalent of attending an actual speed dating event and ending the conversation with “I’m happily married, I just came for the free beer”. I left so many of the conversations utterly confused. I marked a few developers with scores of 9’s and 10’s, but by the next day, I had no idea why. I gave one dev a 7 in the interview but reached out to him because of his resume. I would make it smaller and less wordy than my traditional resume. If you’re looking for a job or interested in switching I’d still recommend giving it a try.
Just like in real speed dating, you have to do something to stand out and be memorable. If I were to attend as a dev, I would be sure to bring something memorable for the interviewers to take with them. See if there is a city near you and request an invite.
