Ok Cupid — heck, the chubby kid doesn't even get to keep the space before his name — has joined with Second City on a show about online mating.
One speed-dating company in New York City, for example, holds a gathering almost every day.Last year online coupon company Groupon hosted the world’s largest speed-dating event, with 414 attendees crammed into a restaurant in Chicago.And, so shoot me, I like shows that upset the sponsor. Norris' presence, and narrative, does give the show a bit more unity than some other such pieces — the veracity of her little prank makes it more fun and she's smart enough to add some of her own personal vulnerability into the mix.She comes and goes in terms of energy, but she's there, she's honest and she's empathetic, unlike her various alter-egos who are enough to make anyone just say "no" for life.AS A PSYCHOLOGIST, I have always found the concept of speed dating fascinating.
During a series of mini dates, each spanning no more than a couple of minutes, participants in a speed-dating event evaluate a succession of eligible singles.
Decisions, Decisions Traditional dating can seem haphazard, contingent on seemingly minor details such as whether you signed up for the right yoga class or patronized the same bar as your future love interest.
Online dating, too, has its drawbacks, requiring hours to sift through profiles and craft careful introductory e-mails before arranging to meet in person.
As you might imagine, I did not find the love of my life.
I made some beginner’s mistakes; however, I am not alone in having struggled with speed dating.
Start-up companies now meet with investors, pregnant couples interact with doulas, and homeless dogs court potential owners, all using the speed-dating format.
