If not enough women register then the event can’t go on, because the men would spend most of the dating period sitting in silence waiting for the women to rotate around.
This included three men who looked like they had just left volleyball practice before heading over, several more in cosplay who seemed unable to make eye contact, one of whom was much too excited for what was about to happen and another who was all too eager to tell me all about his original Dungeons and Dragons character, whom he was dressed as.
The papers had numbers matching everyone we had just speed dated.
This was our chance to give contact information to anyone we wanted to meet again.
And at the prompting of several of my friends who were already completely over my sour mood, I decided to sign up.
There were two people at the Super Sonic Speed Dating table when I arrived to sign up, a man in streets clothes and a woman cosplaying D. They informed me that there would be several different sessions available throughout the weekend with half of them designated straight and half of them LGBTQ.
