Well, I mean, statistically — yes, someone in the country’s bound to be doing just that.
But for the purposes of this piece, we’ll be focusing on a more specific group of single people — several of whom may, in fact, at this very moment be sitting down with a cup of coffee to open their inbox and browse through a suggested selection of potential life-partners This group (as you’ve probably guessed) went speed-dating during the week. Now, whatever else you think such an undertaking might say about a person, it plainly indicates a certain level of thought it might be worth heading along too.

It doesn’t matter how good a people-person you might consider yourself to be, only a sociopath would enter a speed-dating venue without a certain level of trepidation.
