Let us not forget, FFJD is a dating-centric bloggy wog (not dissimilar to a booky wook). I get a lot of emails about speed dating -- should I do it? You get a scorecard, you get a fillet o'fish/gentlemen, and you talk to each of them for a set period of time until you hear a buzzer or pass out from inhaling halitosis perfumes. ), and your waxer is your best friend (this I can happily admit because I'm in a relationship), generally.

You have a speed introduction for just three minutes to find out as much about each other as possible. By the time you have reached your last speed dater you will have noted the number of every potential 'date' you have met in that time.

Step three: Hand in your feedback dates event form.

Step four: After the event you will be contacted with your match details via e-mail or text.

But there's a new very cool way to date or meet new friends that's quick and totally pain free!

It's the latest thing sweeping the globe - UK, USA, Australia, New york, Los Angeles, New Zealand, California and here' how it works...

One: As soon as you arrive at the venue you will be asked to write your name and contact details on a sheet or paper.

Two: You take a seat, girls on one side, boys the other.

(Like, should I tweet that I am picking my nose right now?

You can make faces at each other if you want, but don't ruin the whole experience by only talking to your friend. Towards the end of rush sessions I used to want to poke my eyeballs out and never, ever, ever talk about how much I love my Comm classes ever again. You might miss out on a guy you could really like if you're too plastered that you can't hold a conversation, you're really tired of talking and need a throat lozenge, or are wondering how late Tasti is open (10 PM).
