It all started when I went on my first speed date while taking a writing course. The dinner date I got out of it was pretty lame, but the essay I wrote (repurposed as my first blog post) got a lot of laughs from classmates, friends and family. So for the entertainment value (oh yeah, and the vague hope that I might meet someone cool), I’ve kept at it. Read on for my entirely true experiences as a chronic speed dater. Come back every Monday for a new post. And if you like the blog, pass the word along. The more hits I get, the more incentive I have to put on a low-cut shirt and collect more material.

I was going to send these questions to you in person, but can’t find a contact link.

    I’ve written an article on my blog about last night’s speed dating shenanigans:
