I have about an hour to decide if I'm going to a speed dating event tonight. It sounds like fun -- or funny, I should say -- but I'm thinking no.
Clearly, the event would yield itself to a good laugh or two, but I get the feeling Shreveport is too small for something like this. I can just imagine sitting through an evening of five-minute dates only to end up sitting across the table from an ex-boyfriend. Or even worse, one of my dad's friends!
The concept of getting to knowing whether or not you like someone in five-minutes is ridiculous, but it may save me some heartache and time wasted. Usually it takes me five months to take an ax to the relationship. Knocking 4 months, 3 weeks, 6 days, 23 hours and 55 minutes off my typical rejection cycle could be convenient and beneficial.
