Quickly see who you click with and want to see again for second dates! Our Meetup group is designed for you to find dates with people you like!!Among the many participants of the event, organised by a Bengaluru-based group who are reintroducing the concept across Indian cities, was Sakshi Sharma*, the MD of a city-based educational institute.Though she left a tad disappointed (her dates were either too young or too boring), Sakshi, 32, would consider speed dating again, if the organisers could promise better company (sorry Sakshi, we're certain they can't).But by the end of the evening, they will be somewhat acquainted with at least five others from the opposite sex, having just participated in what is a very popular way for singles the world over to meet new people - speed dating.In India, the concept surfaced (not necessarily thrived, as a quick online search will reveal) more than 10 years ago and was quickly forgotten when young Indians discovered the joys of meeting new people at the swipe of a thumb.
