"Are you serious?" is probably the first question your friends are going to ask you after you tell them you're going to a Speed Dating Montreal event. Most people don't really know much about these sorts of events and have probably only heard about them from the movies. The whole experience seems so artificial that it couldn't possibly result in anything more than just a funny story, right? Wrong!\nSpeed Dating Montreal was established in 2001 and has been quite successful ever since. A typical speed dating event consists of a series of 5-minute encounters with various participants of your age group. You'll basically get to have 20 short dates in the same day. So why not try?\nHere's why you should totally consider speed dating:\n1. It's time efficient\nThink about it. You get to meet and chat with 20 different potential dates in about two hours! Pretty cool stuff.\n2. It's affordable\nIt only costs $25 + tax for 20 dates?! Whaaaaat?\n3. You'll meet new people\nYou actually get to meet new people. Nothing can replace real life interactions. It's fun and stimulating!\n4. It's good practice\nYou get to practice your flirting skills without looking like a total weirdo because everyone is on the same page as you and actually expects you to flirt.\n5. It's real life\nOnline dating is fun and all, but it has very little to do with real life situations. Speed dating makes you experience real life interactions without serious commitment.\n6.

The possible match\nYou might actually meet your future husband or wife there! You never know... you never know...\n8.
