Last November, 13th Renaldo suggested that we go to speed dating. When I hear of speed dating I am reminded of the scene from the movie Hitch where the woman stands up and announces she has not been laid in a year. He suggested this speed dating thing but I found something else happening later in the week from OnSpeedDating which has themed speed dating events. One of their events is called Asian Persuasion, for asian women and the men who like them.
He signed up immediately and by the time I try to sign up the event was closed for men. Not to be outdone by my non-Asian men with Asian fetishes I decided to go to the event early and see if there was anyone who cancelled so I can squeeze in. Otherwise I would of gone to the nearby gym. Luckily the host allowed me to squeeze in. If you don’t know anything about speed dating they pair up a girl and a guy and they each have three minutes to speak with each other. After the three minutes a bell rings and one person (usually the guy rotates to the next girl) and the process repeats itself. Each girl/guy has a sheet to record notes about the person they like and at the end of the night if they both select each other then they can trade contact info and chat again.
Renaldo likes to take me along because he makes this outrageous claim that women are magically drawn to me. Even though there is a New York Times bestseller written about him. Since there were just slightly more men than women, some men will be at empty tables. And for the first round I was at an empty table. Two guys and two girls who were at the bar to watch the football game were watching the speed dating event. One of the non-Asian girls (hispanic) came up and talked to me during the first three minutes. Her two guy friends kept lip-syching numbers to me. The numbers correspond to the station of the girls they thought were attractive. Of course they pointed to the next station to my right where there was an attractive dark skinned Filipino girl. They also shouted out a number corresponding to a light-skinned Taiwanese girl I would meet later in the night.
Overall though it was a mediocre experience. Once again the old saying goes “Women are like parking spaces… The good ones are always taken.” And you have to wonder why any attractive, good personality girl would go to speed dating. They don’t. For the most part I can see why these women are single. Some examples one girl has a few extra pounds and bad breath. One woman had frizzy dyed blonde highlights and was way too old for me (in their forties). Asian women tend to age well so if she looked in her forties then she could easily be in her forties.
At the end of the night, Renaldo and I sat down and decided to have dinner at the bar/restaurant there and one of the male speed daters approached us and asked us who we liked. Of course as with guys they always pick the same woman, the pale-skinned Taiwanese girl, the dark skinned Filipino girl and there was a girl who had her name legally changed to a French name. I did not find anyone who I felt I wanted to see again. But let us see who picks me. As for Renaldo as any good pickup artist he actually tried to get the Asian girl’s immediately (with the French name).
