They specialize in hosting fun get togethers for people who are looking to step out of their comfort zones and meet new people!On January 28, 2015, Singleinthe will be hosting a South-Asian speed-dating event in Mississauga!But I did not feel fun or flirty—I was sad and I wanted to eat all of the cheese.While I was enjoying the comfort of mutual spooning, dating had entered a new high-volume, high-speed era in which 20-somethings like me could land five dates a week just by swiping right on their phones. Neither did Lulu, a forum in which women review the dateability of male Facebook friends using hashtags like #Wants Kids Yesterday, nor the dozens of other new digital dating tools. And so, in the spirit of total immersion (and ripping off the Band-Aid), I dove off my couch and into the world of modern dating for 10 comfort-zone-destroying days. DAY 1: WORKING UP THE NERVE I meet Sofi Papamarko for a coffee.
Forget classified personals, speed dating, or other Toronto dating sites or chat rooms, you've found the best!
DAY 2: VAMPIRESUNDAY I set up an Ok Cupid profile under the name “vampiresunday.” (It’s a play on the band Vampire Weekend, which I hope will appeal to indie rockers who own yachts.) I fill out endless questionnaires, telling the algorithm I’m a neurotic writer with thick thighs, ADD and a degree in cinema studies. ” Many others ask for my favourite taco restaurants and acclaimed cable TV shows.
According to Ok Cupid, I am “More Independent,” “Less Love-Driven” and “Less Conventionally Moral” than the average user. I exchange messages with an arborist who calls himself “eating_almonds.” On his profile he admits to shoplifting Bioré pore strips, which I find oddly attractive.
“That’s why you have to try everything.” After a few hours of my own swiping, a man offers to take me to a Jewish deli and “have sex through a sheet”; another tells me I look like Rashida Jones (! Finally, I message a cute software manager, and we meet for a drink. I get his number and call, but he seems confused and asks if something is the matter. Or you flirt on Twitter.” I file this advice away in my “WTF” Rolodex.
Nonetheless, we chat for an hour, but I never hear from him again. DAY 6: MUST LOVE DOGS I meet Shannon Tebb, who runs her own dating consultation firm, Shanny in the City.
