Anyone tried it?

If so, what is your opinion about it? What type of people show up? How many were there? Was it enough time to get to know someone or not enough time?

Probably IS horrific, or at least for people that aren't douchebags.

Getting your crotch shaved and applying fake tan might increase your luck in speed dating lol.

I can't imagine Aspie's would do well with speed dating. For me at least, I don't make very good first impressions, and if I understand the concept properly, speed dating is based entirely on first impressions. Seams like a very NT type of activity.

Same here for me but some Aspies might do well with it if they have a very successful career & life. I hear the top question asked is What do you do for a living

Wouldn't that attract gold diggers?

I'd sooner admit defeat then try something as sad as speed dating. I mean, the whole courtship process is humiliating and debasing enough, but paying for the privilege of enduring multiple humiliations in the space of an hour? You gotta be stupid or desperate. Skip it.

Or slackers looking for a free meal ticket.

I whould think you have to be social bug for these as you have limited time to talk about your self and connect with the other person.

I've done this and I found it to be absolutely no fun. I hate on-the-spot social expectations; I am much more meticulous when it comes to actual dating so overall I found the experience unpleasant and distasteful
