Peer Support Network

Speed Dating Experience Speed dating is a popular activity, where one can meet new friends through a series of time-efficient “dates” with 12-15 members of the opposite gender. You will be able to talk comfortably with each of them and hopefully make an impression on some. Though you can ask a friend to accompany you, it is strongly advised that you register alone so you can make new friends. The facilitators will introduce various activities so that you can have a fun afternoon and an opportunity to polish your dating skills. A set of speed dating tips will be given to you in preparation for the event.
