Gay Speed Dating (aka How to Get Five Dates in One Evening)

Speed dating is a pressure-free way to meet guys that involves multiple five-minute dates in one evening — and I don’t mean the kind of dates that happen late at night in Stanley Park.

Vancouver’s own Love Connection puts on evenings of speed dating for gay men where guys can weed out undesirable suitors without committing to an evening of sweaty palms and awkward silences.

You simply go through multiple rounds of quick conversations with eligible bachelors and write down the names of the guys you want to see again on your match card. If anyone reciprocates interest, an email will be forwarded to you and you could be on your way to calling someone pookie.
