    The problem with singles is that, either they are too shy or too busy in work.

    However I would like to take the challenge, to organize a speed dating event. I wonder is Speed Dating still popular? Will there be active participants?

    However, do not think "dating" is where we must really find a soul mate. Speed Dating can be simply an activity to break out of normal life routine, relax and get to know some new friends. As simple as that, right?

    Be it popular or not, I am in the process of organizing one.

    So far, I have collected 3 males and 1 female participants.

    Male:
    Construction Supervisor
    Material Planner
    IT Consultant

    Female:
    Clerk

    If you know any single friend, feel free to notify them my Speed Dating event. I hope the participants are from far away and different background.

    Yes, I am the female clerk.

    Me and 2 friends will be helping out and hosting the event. We'll do it in a tranditional and safe way. We'll prepare some games which are suitable for couple to overcome and give away small gifts.

    Meanwhile I am still in the middle of collecting 15 pairs of males and females. If you are interested, welcome to send me your name, gender, age, from where, phone, email, occupation, education and interest to lisa@brightred.sg.

    After 1 whole month of advertising and working, all participants are almost in place. It is about time to close the event.

    The fee will be fixed at SGD28. Tonight I'll write email to individual participant to collect the amount. Only those who paid will be considered confirmed participant. Alright!!!

    Hello, is it that they must speak English during the introduction? I know some people when they communicate in Mandarin, they are confident but when comes to English, they speak like a small kid.

    The participants are Singaporean, Malaysian and China people. Most of them will be ok to communicate in both Mandarin and English.

    Haha, don't be so prejudiced against people from certain country lah.

    So far, my statistics shows, Malaysian participants > Singapore > China. Not too bad loh. The participant age is mainly among 25~30 years old, which is very good sign.

    This is the final week of consolidation already. Interested to join?

    After past 1 week of busy recruitment and arrangement, the 1st 25~30 years old version of Speed Dating event came to a good finale on 6 June 2009.

    The response to the event was overwhelming - we had a total of 30 pairs of participants. Even though it may have been a bit tedious for some participants to speak to so many warm new friends, everyone went home happy and full of new found friendships.

    I have uploaded the event photos into Facebook. You may add brightred.sg@gmail.com as friend to view the photos.

    I think some people like speed dating and some don't. It's hard to say whether one person will like it or not. I tried it a few months ago through this website - Lovestruck Singapore dating, and I really enjoyed it. It's so different from normal dating, it's very fast paced action where you meet lots of different people in one evening. If that sounds like something you might like, you should give it a try but if you would prefer to have more time to get to know the other person, it might not be for you.

    Only for those who can handle the idea of talking to 10 different people for 5minutes each.. i think it's tiring
