Overall, I think Adventure Dating is a fantastic concept and has huge potential to really take-off as an alternative to speed dating, with a few tweaks.Unlike other speed dating events I have been to, people also tended to hang around and mingle afterwards, which was facilitated by the free drink post-event.Another good thing about Adventure Dating was the lack of pencil and paper checklists.Ten minutes is great when matched with someone who can converse, but it’s a bit of a nightmare when your interaction goes something like this: Him: “Do you uh, go dancing?
