When we walked into the event venue, Christine and I were greeted by energetic hosts who gave us a piece of paper with two columns: One for the successful dates and the other for the, uh, failures.
On the back of this sheet, we were encouraged to write notes on the people we were “dating,” like their names, their features and even any annoying habits we might have noticed right off the bat…
Christine and I took seats close together, as we came up with a goofy signal for whether we liked or disliked the guys we would soon meet.

Though I had contemplated and completely vetoed the concept a for many years, hence the bit about me not really dating, I soon typed the words: “Hey, want to try something completely crazy and sign up for speed dating? Within 20-minutes, I found four different organizations that offer speed dating in Toronto.
Ten-minutes later, Christine and I signed up via 25dates.com, a speed dating company that hosts events in Toronto, Mississauga, Ottawa, Vancouver and Calgary.
We don't find anything romantic about whistles, name-tags or over-the-top party trimmings typically found at singles events so we have done away with them.
Creating an atmosphere that is at once casual and comfortable. For those that prefer the same simplified experience in matchmaking we offer our 'Date Nights' free of contracts or commitments.
We promised we would text each other as soon as we had our results. Regardless of whether the speed dating results work out for Christine and I, I am happy I took the plunge and tried something new.
