Chicago speed dating

DISCLAIMER & WAIVER By signing up for a Date Switch speed dating event, you are acknowledging that Date Switch has not checked the validity or backgrounds of individuals participating in Date Switch speed dating events.Date Switch is not responsible for what happens between any individuals at Date Switch speed dating events or in future meetings of any kind between two individuals who met at a Date Switch speed dating event.My last official relationship ended a few weeks before Thanksgiving in 2013 (I just pulled up some old emails to confirm the date, and I’m definitely saving them for my memoir) and I’ve dated here and there in the years since without falling in love or meeting anyone who left a significant impact on my life.

I’ve tried the apps but, like Adam, have gotten mixed results. On one hand, I’d love the companionship or even a very consistent friend with benefits, but I’m also content in my singledom.

I’m used to it, despite the societal pressure that comes with being unmarried and childless at 32.

According to a Singles in America study from Match.com, 22 percent of millennials are more likely to feel that tech has made finding love harder.

In the interest of giving all the left- and right-swiping a rest, we sent Adam Lukach, Red Eye reporter, and Sadé Carpenter, Red Eye deputy editor, on a speed dating mission. Dating background Adam: After a yearslong relationship recently ended, I have returned to dating in earnest for the first time since 2013. In just the last few years, the different digital avenues available for dating have changed dramatically, and every option comes with its own learning curve.

Date Switch participants agree by signing up for an event that they will indemnify and hold Date Switch and its subsidiaries, affiliates, venues, officers, agents and other partners and or employees, harmless from any damage, claim or liability.

Dating is complicated for any generation, but millennials must contend with the double-edged sword of technology.

Like Jamila Woods sang, “I’m not lonely, I’m alone.

And I’m holy by my own.”Pre-event Sadé: I’ve always wanted to try speed dating, which seemed perfect for a Valentine’s Day story.

Priority is on a first come first serve basis and also to those who have already signed up for an event in their own age group.
