In the era of Tinder and match.com, HISpeedating is a way for singles to meet their potentials in person.
Each of the 10 men and women are given a “connection card” at check-in to keep track of their dates and whether they would like to see them again. In those movies, it’s kind of lame—it made people look kind of weird. All the bouncers at Bar 35 are like ‘OMG, these people are single?
If both parties hit it off, Do will email them after the event to exchange their contact information. The first thing you need to know about speed dating, according to Do, is that it’s not what you see on TV. Everyone is nice looking.’” While movies and TV shows can make speed dating seem awkward, staged and almost clinical, the atmosphere at Bar 35, thanks to Do’s eye for romance, is private and intimate: dim lighting, candles and roses on every table and music loud enough that it encourages the couples to lean in.

Our conversation was going all right until I told him I had seen a symphony performance recently, but when he asked which one, I couldn't remember. He seemed less than pleased that my research was not purely personal. 3, a 48-year-old guy who told me the last time he tried speed dating, a woman he was talking to during the game decided to stand up and leave before their seven minutes were up. My best friend from high school, a date-worthy pediatrician who tried speed dating unsuccessfully this week in Portland, Ore., said it's kind of like discount shopping. Other times, zilch."If anything, I think speed dating helps break the ice," said Ken Tarumoto, 43, who won a 27-inch color television as a door prize at one singles night and plans to keep coming back until he finds what he's really looking for.
Dee Dee De Soto, who served as organizer, made speed-dating matches with a technique slightly more sophisticated than junior-high note passing.
“I would say younger business professionals with a 9-to-5 job who don’t get to meet anyone outside of their job,” says Do.
