So you are the only one in your group of friends who has not managed to find the perfect person for marriage or just a simple relationship. You have tried and tried along the years by going on a series of dates which have, in the end, proven to be just a waste of time, feelings and money. If you are living in China and find yourself at the end of the rope when it comes to finding a lover, you probably need specialized help. One of the options you have is going on one of the numerous Hong Kong speed dating venues organized more often these days. However, before you put your hopes up too high, it is best to know the pros and cons of this whole process.


Speed dating is basically this: you pay a fee or not for going to a bar, restaurant or community centre where a specialized firm has gathered an even number of men and women. Depending on the organizers’ decision, you will have between 2 and 10 minutes to talk to each of the men or women you are interested in. Male participants will move from table after the time is up, whilst women will stay put. After the dating “ritual” is over, each of the participants will write down the name of the person they found most compatible. If the organizers find people who feel the same about each other, they will do their best to make the two singles form a couple.


So what are positive aspects about going to such a meeting? First of all, you will meet around 15 people in a short period of time. This means you will have the possibility of comparing and contrasting features, but also save a lot of time you would regularly spend on dating such a large number or partners. Secondly, you will have the certainty that all the people there have the same goal you do: to find someone serious for a long-term relationship or marriage. Last but not least, you will be more relaxed than on regular date because you will surely not get to that point in the date where you do not know what to ask your partner anymore. Since you are constricted by time, both you and your conversation mate will have to focus on relevant information and avoid awkward small talk.


Even though this type of service has a high success rate and has help many single people find the loves of their lives, there are some elements you should keep in mind. Because you will have such a short period of time to make a decision, you may end up making a bad first impression on the person you like. The situation can also go the other way around, as someone you really like and who really likes may be too shy to open up. There is also the possibility of being rejected by the person you felt the strongest connection with because he or she is interested in someone else from the room. Worst case scenario is that you manage to talk to all participants but feel like no one there will be suitable for you. This means you will go home without a date, but also loose some money.


Whatever you decide to do, our advice is that you do not go through life alone. Remember the word of the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu: “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage”.
