Two Quick Speed Dating Games

Not sure what to say during speed dating?

Try these two fun alternatives.

Speed dating is a great way to get to know possible partners quickly. However, it can be a tiring getting asked the same questions over and over again.

Recent studies have proven two fantastic way that can increase interest and boost your chances – just by trying something a bit different.


1) Guess the picture.  For this, you’ll need to bring along a pad of paper.  Give one sheet to the person you are speed dating and tell them you’ll try and project an image to them just using your mind.  They have to try and get it right.   It might seem a bit silly, but you’ll stand out from everyone else for your amazing imagination.

2) Eye Gazing.  Rather than talking, you both stare into each others eyes.  You will both probably find it amusing to start with, but laughter is good.   It’s actually a fantastic way of getting a fast connection and you might just be surprised at what happens!

You could of course combine both these activities.  Just make sure you introduce yourselves first and that you end it by suggesting you talk about things after the event.

Happy dating!
