Speedier Dating. Want to go speed dating but
a) Put off by the expense
b) Put off by the (really non-existent) stigma that hangs over the whole billy-no-dates deal

Well just go to the nearest pub to a speed dating venue half an hour before the event starts. The place will be full of singletons who too are a touch unsure about signing up to the whole deal drinking steel-your-nerves juice. Only a modicum of charm will be needed to drag these people away from the soul destroying twenty five three minute dates, because everyone wants to say the pulled the normal way. They would rather spend the evening in the Cock And Camel with you than running through their life story for the twentieth time*.

*Cock and Camel, Oxford, chosen for being the home of this observation.
