Indian speed dating johannesburg best cheapest dating websites

by: Fatima Mathivha - 17 April 2015 It’s 20h05 on a Saturday evening. I power walk just fast enough to save myself from breaking out into a full sweat. I hope they didn’t see me.” As I take a few steps back towards Fox Street, lined with parked cars, I see a sign just to the left of the entrance. “Shame, she’s so single and lonely she’s resorted to speed dating in the dark”, I imagine them saying.

Half-running, half-walking, I turn towards the Arts on Main entrance and catch a glimpse of a line of men comfortably seated outside the POPArt Theatre in the Maboneng Precinct. Etched on the blackboard in the brightly-lit entrance I’m hovering around are the words ‘DATING IN THE DARK’. Just as I decide to move further away from the incriminating sign I see the men walking into the theatre. We huddle into the bar and entrance of POPArt where instructions for the evening are given. I gulp down some white wine between nervous giggles until the Dutch courage settles in.

With Valentine’s Day just a short month away, why not get yourself out there!

In forty minutes I met three men I’ve never met before, in a fun and safe environment, one of which may be the answer to my dreams of avoiding yet another cold winter.

There’s an Indian woman, one other black woman and five white women.

Those that came with friends have conversations and take selfies while the ones that came alone silently sip wine whilst staring off into the distance.

There was the medicine student who made my first date super easy by talking about himself, the touchy businessman who asked me why I had scooted my chair backwards, a 41 year old who gave me some advice about life, and a colourful character that slurred through our five minutes together. At the end of our dates the women left first, moving into the bar area to hand over their rate cards. I had some great conversations and some not-so-great conversations, but at no point did I think about whether my lips were dry or if I had something in my teeth.

On Sunday, when I received three emails with the subject “you’re a match!
