Speed Dating / 스피드데이트 / スピードデート

Grace from Korea here.

Speed Dating

Have you ever heard the word 'speed dating' ? I've never heard that word before, until today when I got to watch one interesting video.

* Language Learning

Out of the boxthink about somethingor how to do somethingin a newdifferent or creative way
Rattling onto talk quickly and for a long time about something that is not important or interesting
Rattle something offto say or repeat something from memoryquickly and without any effort
Mingletalk to people, talk to friends
Get along with : have a good relationship with

So.. It's for people who live in big city, have busy life. With their busy life, their work is so busy and their social life is so busy because there are so many options and things to do. As a result, it's actually really hard for them to find someone whom they want to spend rest of their life with.

Speed dating is fun, fast and efficient to meet people by just one night out ! Interesting !

Thanks to Jeff, my professor who made this interesting paper of questions, my classmates and I looked into this paper and tried to act like we were in speed dating place.

So, here are some interesting questions.

- What did you do last weekend?
- What kind of music do you like?
- What kind of movies do you like?
- What do you do for fun?
- What book are you reading at the moment?

- What makes you happy / sad / angry?
- Are you more of a city or country person?
- What is your dream job?
-What are you most passionate about?

- Are you night owl or an early bird?
- What song best sums you up?

- If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
- What would be your ideal holiday destination?
- What makes you laugh?
- What is your favorite takeout meal?

After looking into that paper, my classmates and I were pretending we were in a speed dating place ! And we recorded. 

1. Speed dating with Sera
with Sera, we had something in common which was we both had been in Australia as a working holiday ! As soon as we found something in common, it was easy to keep our conversation going.

2. Speed dating with Jaehee
With Jaehee, since he was a boy whom I really met for the first time, it was kind of awkward at the beginning. But thanks to the paper (lol), we asked a few questions to each other and it was informative.

3. Speed dating with Jihyun
With Jihyun, it was easy to keep talking thanks to her who tried to give me extra information. I had a fun time to talk to her :)

I don't know whether I will be doing speed dating someday or not, but I thought it can be fun one night out activity to meet people in busy life.

So ! If you are interested in speed dating, why don't you keep those questions in your mind? :) It will help you to be relaxed as preparing your own answers too !
