Valentines day speed dating
Over 1,000 people attended our singles party, which was held at Slate, one of New York's hottest nightlife destinations.
While our competitors have Anti-Valentine's Singles Parties, we like to consider our parties Pro-Valentine's Singles Parties, because we aim to introduce single people to each other so that they don't have to feel single on Valentine's Day.
The committee of the event were commendable in organising and planning the program, and were also very helpful towards the participants.
In spite of the drawbacks, students left the room with more friends than before.
According to Noorulain, the head of the event committee: The event committee also chose the day of love to promote socialisation among strangers, complimentary to their fundraising aim.Many were anxious or nervous as it was their first try at speed dating.One of the IGNITE writers, as a participant herself, felt keyed up as it was her first time experimenting with such an event.Due to the lack of interaction with new people, having been paired up with friends, these students found it difficult to actually meet a romantic match.As one anonymous participant put it, However, the students made the best out of the situation and got to know their friends better through the conversations they shared. Though there is still room for improvement in the future.
For example, after six minutes of chatting with female No.3, the No.3 male would have to interact with the No.4 female for the next six minutes.
