Recently we started hosting Ivy League/Advanced Degree Speeddating events. Weirdly (and “weirdly” I mean “of course”) these events sell out with very little promotion from me. As I noted a few weeks ago, speed dating is no longer all that popular, since Tinder and Bumble and all the other apps essentially mimic the format of a traditional speed dating event.
But what does seem to interest people is speeddating where there is a shared identity or interest. So, I’m thinking of putting together a Six Figure Speeddating Event, where the men and the women have to earn six figures. There would be no way for me to vet people and confirm their salary, of course. I’d have to rely on the honor system. But I kind of like the idea and wanted to see what you people think.
