Tired of having to develop relationships over time? Now you can speed the whole process up with these 'speed friending' events that are currently taking Dublin by storm.
Speed friending is a way to let people know you want to hang out with them without the awkwardness. Come along, have a quick chat with people from all different walks of life, see who you click with and bada-bing new friends to do cool stuff with!
As the name suggests, the event works a bit like speed dating: you get 5 minutes with each speed friender to test the waters and see if you'd like to hang out with them in future. Each of these mini-meets are seated and participants are provided with a box of conversation starters "just in case."
The next event will take place next Sunday at 7pm in The Mercantile on Dame Street. If you'd like to join in and see what all the fuss is about, click here.
