You can see my girlfriend Debby’s chronicle of her speed dating experience at the second event here, or Luke’s report of the first event here.As it turns out, running poly speed dating takes more than one or even two people.
This is a very hard problem to solve, and cannot be done by just sitting down with a pencil and paper.
We included age, since many people have determined that they date best in certain age ranges, or that they tend to be attracted to people in certain age ranges.
(Though as it turns out, people’s dating age preferences turned out to be surprising – more on this below.) And because this was poly speed dating, we also gave people the ability to date as a couple or group (say, as a triad).
This writeup started as a report on a poly speed dating event I have been helping to organize, and turned into a meditation on holding innovative poly events.
If you want to skip the somewhat lengthy event report, head down to the Speed Dating and Poly Organizing section.
Luke had the idea and continues to be the ringleader and main programmer, and he puts in the most effort.
I helped him with the programming and I yell at people during the event to get them to do things.
We are looking for a larger venue for the third round, which has not been scheduled.
If you want to participate in a future round, go to the poly speed dating website and email us using the link at the bottom to be put on our mailing list.
For poly speed dating, we had to expand on this concept.
First off, the organized polyamory community in our area has a lot of queer folks.
My partner Jen and her boyfriend have been logistical support, registering people, doing the data entry, setting up and taking down, and so on. None of us has any prior experience holding speed dating events.
