Everyone gets a chance to meet (and flirt); and successful pairings are given contact info to try their luck in the "real world."Speed dating is useful for obvious reasons, like sharing horror stories about inappropriate participants.

”) and who interrupted them — but only as a way to show understanding and engagement (“Exactly”).
Everyone participated just once, and all students were promised the contact information of anyone they matched with.
