I didn’t talk to any of the other guys there — to be honest, in the 25 minute wait for it to start, I buried my head in my i Phone.I know, not exactly a great first impression, but there it is.I mean covered — making the pants nearly look grey.By total luck, I had one of those lint tape-roller things in my jacket pocket from when I wanted to use it on the way to a speech. And good fortune, because the lighting in the place was good enough that it would have revealed the true me — a crazy cat lady. The women had “their” tables, from which they didn’t move; the men circulated every time a glass was tinked — every eight minutes.So tonight I basically spent the comp they gave me.Because I’m a masochist, I scheduled a couple of heavy-duty teeth fillings on the same day as speed-dating. I thought it might make something funny to bring up in conversation, but then thought “Oh, god, they’ll think my mouth is fully of rotten teeth!Each table had a number on it, which, while perhaps a little dehumanizing, proved helpful for us guys to know which direction to go to.At the end of the first five rounds, there was a trivia question to answer.
