I'd sidle up from work, have a quick couple of beers and flash that capital charm. Those poor, sad northern ladies wouldn't know what hit them! What is it they say about the best-laid plans of mice and er, Mancunians?
Speed dating: the Happy Meal of romance?
Problem number one was that my "few beers" after work quickly mutated into a full-on afternoon session. Arriving at the venue - which I noted was surprisingly plush - I realised that I was somewhere between mid-evening merry and outright drunk.
Yet this was surely a minor stumbling block. I changed my strategy for the night to include my new character of witty, cheeky mockney rather than sophisticated city gentleman. I soon realised that this was the least of my difficulties. I was quickly struck by how good everybody looked.
Not that they were all movie star, model types, but they had clearly all made a real effort for the evening, not least my friends, who I swore were more than a little smug to find me looking dishevelled, scruffy and generally worse for wear.
I retreated to the bathroom for urgent running repairs. It's safe to say I didn't make the best of starts. My attempts at gentle ribbing came across as open hostility "so what is it about Manchester that you like? Where did you get it? It was also noticeable that many of the participants had prepared some questions prior to the event or at least given some thought to what their responses might be. Of course, I hadn't. Walking in, to our relief, there was a real mix of people, and to our relief you got a free glass of champagne to calm any nerves.
We sat down and registered. My old married name was on the list due to its being connected to my PayPal account. The instructions were simple. All the women sat at a table, and the men moved from table to table every time a whistle was blown.

You got a sheet to make notes about each person, and had to tick yes or no regarding seeing them again. In the hours that followed we both had 21 dates.
The most striking thing about the whole process was the sheer amount of bilge you can cover with someone you have never met before — in three minutes. Wow, just three minutes to reach that conclusion; speed dating is efficient! By date 21 I was fully dated out. Luckily that date was Dan so we compared notes on how it had gone then I went to the bathroom and he went to the bar.
From inside the cubicle I could hear two girls discussing Dan and how nice they thought he was. I had one, which considering I only ticked yes for two people was pretty good going.
