Quick Dating Parties

Valentine's day is right around the corner and some East Texans are still looking for their sweetheart. So, they're dating on the fast track through quick date parties. Here's how it works: Singles get together at local restaurants to meet and greet and possibly find love. Thirty single men and 30 single women sit at tables for two. They chat for three minutes, then switch tables. They rate each date with a yes, meaning they'd like to see them again or a no!

If a match is made, the real dates begin. Singles say the speed is what makes these dates so attractive. Quick dater Michael Dressel said, "You can either meet them and like them or meet them and move on. That's the best part about it." Quick dater Brenda Starr said, "Its three minutes and if I don't like them, then they are gone."

The quick date parties have been such a success, more are being planned in East Texas. They are sponsored by Clear Channel radio. The next party should be in March or April.
