Speed dating singapore event
This was the second time I had it on; I was dressed to kill (or so I thought), but at the same time 20 minutes early, pacing the toilet and breaking into perspiration because Singapore is just too damn humid.I was right: I was dressed to kill — to kill myself.Then it struck me: Immediately, I signed up, paid, and got the details from Gai Gai.I shan’t go into the boring details of the confirmation process, because I pretty much forgot everything except the fact that I was going to meet 3 days later, I was there in my smartest looking suit, specially tailored when I was invited to a snazzy F1 suite last year as part of a client event.The first lady, Marilyn (not her real name), was a doctor — pretty, but according to her, just too busy to meet anyone.I was pretty nervous at first, and by pretty nervous, I mean I was a train wreck.Had they given me unlimited choices, I might have just listed everyone down (or at least 6 to 7 names).
Event feedback has been good with over 85% of "Excellent” and “Good” service ratings.
All these happened just a couple of weeks ago: the couple of dates I’ve since been on with Cynthia, believe it or not, were the first dates I’ve had in 3 years.
While it’s nothing too serious yet — we’re pretty much still in the getting-to-know-each-other phase — I have to say, this wouldn’t have been possible if I hadn’t discarded my stereotypes about speed dating and taken a leap of faith. Gai Gai is Paktor’s new business arm that provides bespoke dating services and holds singles events regularly.
By that, of course, I don’t mean a mail-order bride or porn — I’m talking about speed dating.
Yes, it might sound lame, but you’d be surprised at the kinds of people you meet.
