As it turns out, running poly speed dating takes more than one or even two people.Luke had the idea and continues to be the ringleader and main programmer, and he puts in the most effort.The second event was attended by ninety people, and we completely stuffed the pizzeria, including their banquet room.We are looking for a larger venue for the third round, which has not been scheduled.Holding a speed dating event where men only talked to women would be way too limiting for this crowd.Which meant we needed to get people’s gender and attractions, and match them based on those.Since we already had a computer matching program in the works, we could also put in criteria other than gender attraction.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.

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.Someone who genuinely cares, those are the true people. 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.I have come to realize that what matters most is the heart and the mind everything else is superficial and fake. I am also realizing more what I need from personal relationships more than what is wanted.I’ve known this for sometime – but I was always hoping that maybe I would find my ying to my yang someplace I would likely be. The punk, vegan, straightedge, etc., thing is cool but what’s really needed is the heart/mind thing. I hope to find someone someday with a heart that I can give my heart too that meets my needs and maybe a few wants.

The basic premise of speed dating is that many people can gauge their level of attraction to someone within the first couple minutes of meeting them.
