Once you’ve asked a couple of generic information gathering questions, it would be wise to begin probing for your specific likes and dislikes.
No one wants to sit across from someone bumbling their way through “memorized” questions, and if you run out of things to say in your allotted time, you’re likely to come off looking pathetic or out of it.
Remember that your speed dating partners are meeting many people in one night.
Its also possible to exhange contact information directly with someone if you manage to hit it off in such a short time.
The key to speed dating is being honest and asking the right questions of your partner. The types of questions you ask depends on the type of person you are and the type of person you’re looking for.
The more original your questions are, while still being specific and appropriate, the more you will stand out among the crowd.
