What Not to Say When Speed Dating

In the present world of speed and frenzy, speed dating is the instant dating solution for a lot of people. Unlike normal dating, you have got five to 10 minutes to meet and create chemistry.

Because of this limited time, the way you dress and the questions you ask are crucial. You don’t have is the luxury of time… If you are tongue-tied, you just lost the game. Who wants to date some one who does not talk, is boring or nervous?

So you must be ready with a list of interesting, impressive and enjoyable questions that will keep the conversation thriving.

Here is a list of questions ranging from serious to silly, that are used in speed dating:
