Speed Dating is EXACTLY as it appeared in the 40 Year Old Virgin, but shittier.

Humorous and traumatic.

The event I went to was held in an incredibly dodgy nighclub called "Boogie Nights". This should have been my first indication that something was terribly wrong. The entrance way was set up like a store front on both sides, which featured scintillating displays of the Village People. I shit you not.

We were then split up according to our ages. I was at the younger end of the older age range so I ended up with the group of women that were at least 5-7 years older than I was. There was only about 8 women in this age group and heaps in the younger (I actually though it might be the other way around, but apparently not). Anyway once the over 30s were split from those who still had hope, we were ushered to a set of tables in a dark corner of the nightclub (you see less wrinkles that way).

Basically we spent 3 minutes with each women then , at the playing of disco music, we moved on to the next. We had a score sheet and we had to indicate whether we would be interested in seeing them again or not. If our choices matched up the company would put us in contact with one another.

I didn't get any matches, which was probably just as well in retrospect. I didn't really have chemistry with anyone (as if you can tell after 3 minutes). There were a remarkable number of office administrators and one interior decorator.

Afterwards, I ended up chatting to a wom0n from the younger group which probably wasn't kosher but by that time I had ceased to care.

I have decided that a life of solitude is preferable to that kind of experience.

I thought it was worth a go. I was wrong. Horribly, Horribly wrong.
