Speed Dating

Somehow a brilliant mind ( though not particularly novel ) has hit on the perfect way for single gayfolk in the city to find their insignificant others!

Speed dating.

Short, succinct and sweet. Could anything be simpler?

Elegant dinner parties for singles would pander to the aspiring ( backstabbing? )social hostess in all gay boys but hors d'oeuvres, social niceties and genteel conversation ( with the occasional slip to verbal catfights ) can sometimes drag on for just a bit.

And you know men can be far more primal ( and impatient ) when it comes to the mating game.

More so these days in the generation that lives on instant gratification. We want everything NOW - and even better, five minutes ago.

Which is why speed dating seems perfect. The breeders have already attempted this method with varying degress of success and I don't see why it can't prove to be a hit with the alternative crowd as well. Just perfect for the shallow, superficial needs of aspiring urban gay men with short MTV-attention spans searching for a partner - no matter how temporary - these days. :)

Kinda wham, bam, thanks-for-the-business-card ma'am.

Whether looking for a cowboy to knock boots with forever or just a quick steamy hustle behind the cantina, speed dating seems to be the way. After all, it gets the prickly introductions out of the way in a jiffy - and frequently advertises the fella's immediate intentions without preamble.

With only five minutes or so to sprint through a date, you know what you're in for after all.

Mike : Hey, I'm Mike. I'm versatile. I like golden showers, BDSM and the occasional fisting. There's a dungeon in my basement made just for me and you.

Getting ready to party...

Certainly no romantic candlelight dinners and walks in the park for this fella. Far different Maslow needs from the guy who'd say this.

Mike : Hey, I'm Mike. I'm an investment banker. If you like PiƱa Coladas and getting caught in the rain, if you're not into yoga, if you have half a brain! If you like making love at midnight in the dunes on the Cape then I'm the love that you've looked for. Write to me and escape.

Given a chance at a speed dating scene, I'd probably jump at it. Unfortunately in my extremely horny mood, I'm not sure which one I'd call. Despite the sweet ultra-romantic message in the latter, I have a bad feeling the dungeon might just come in handy.

Oh they have dat in Msia? I've seen them doing it in the Western countries. It's definitely a very new and bold concept, and I wonder how Asians would take it. First of all, we Asians are not all outspoken as we wish to be :-)

Oh. I thought speed dating was those guys who come up to you and say "Wanna f**k?" and then try to haul you off to the loo. You mean you have to pay for that?

savante said...

Yeah, we are a bit shy when it comes down to that. Wondering how the speed dating bit when as well, mrs phillippe.

So how was the speed date, close talk?

Thanks, naturline!

Well it's not that expensive, queer rant - especially if you get picked up :P

We do share te same tastes, rpm :P

I think there are some who'd say that, I'm sure, camerawhore.
