Maybe your other "friend" (ex friend, I mean ^^) was right that you should be at the gym 23 hours a daySorry to hear :/.
Indeed. If my friend had ticked the box on a few more names, he would now even have more dating options.
My poor performance would not have bothered me, if I had not heard his stats. I did not think I had performed that much worse than him, but I apparently did. No clue why, no option to get feedback.
It also has a bunch of advantages. You know you are talking to someone who is single and willed to date, and are not bothering someone who is not. There is a setup to talk, no anxiety to start a conversation. And everyone gets the same amount of time, no matter how you look or anything else, so you can play your charme even if you are not typically atttactive.
It's definitely not for everyone though, and I wouldn't use it as the only option, but it definitely is a valid option.
Now a different rant: Managed to pull a back muscle while... sitting, I think. I am getting old .
Anyway, speed dating sounds pretty bad. Probably even worse than online.
