The guy who I was chatting to before the event started ended up driving me home to save me a train journey, and he was really nice.
So I'm asking here if anyone knows of any speed dating events around the Triangle, preferably Raleigh/Fuquay area. There are a few groups in the area that are focused around it - I've done it once (managed to have the opportunity for free) and it was fun, but I'm not sure I'd pay to do it again.

There are certain things I do in my life purely because I think it would make a great post.
After the event, we ladies all went to the bathroom together.
We all agreed that the lawyer was a catch, except for my new Chinese friend who said that he had “weird teeth”.
A few more girls turned up and we were chatting away about the online dating sites we used and the kinds of terrible messages we got. He was wearing one of those ironically ugly jumpers – tres cool.
One girl told me she’d recently had a message that just asked her if she was shaved or not. We chatted for a bit, and the Chinese girl tried to set us up even before we’d started the event.I met just as many new potential girlfriends as I did love interests, and we all swapped Facebook details.What happens now, the day after the event, is that I go onto their website and tick the guys who were yeses and friends.In the end I only had one “no” to give – to a personal trainer/actor who was full to the brim with bullshit.And what’s more, I’m actually having butterflies waiting to see who ticked yes for me.At long last we were asked to go upstairs, so with my elderflower pale ale (very good – highly recommend! Girls were placed at tables dotted around the room and the guys were the sushi to be rotated around between us.
