And OK with it, but every now and again, I think that it might be cool to have a someone special.Being a gal who loves new experiences, I hopped online to look for speed dating in the city (which I have never tried) and found something else — firemen.Amber is 5’9″ and has always been attracted to tall men, so it was the perfect fit right from the start.A midnight kiss on New Year’s Eve a few weeks later sealed the deal.The party was open to all women in their 20s, 30s and 40s (for online, at the door), but the men had to be either active or retired firefighters, paramedics, fire EMS or search and rescue. The day of the party, I wasn't really feeling myself and my insecurities nibbled at me like Twitter troll in front of a dangling Selina Gomez bikini pic, but a few texts with my mom and the quick train ride to the Garment District eased my nerves.Plus, I already had a singles mixer under my belt and I vowed to relax and just have fun at the next one. Once I realized there was a second bar downstairs (away from the DJ and crowds), I descended into air conditioning and drank my wine from an appropriate big girl cup.Hudson Station is not The Jane Hotel, where the Social Concierge mixer was held, and that was both good and bad. " I didn’t need the card because Tim and I started chatting immediately. Guys were coming up and bullshitting, busting ass and just being really fun to talk to.Bad: It smelled like a urinal cake and my wine came in a plastic cup. Although not my usual type, he was nice to talk to and easy to look at; when he stepped away, I moved on. My new besties and I even paid to have the psychic, Maria Pirone, tell us our futures.
For instance, On Speed Dating’s Founder Amber Soletti wanted to date tall men, so they organized an event called Size Matters where men had to be at least 6 feet tall to attend.
In 2008, she and another single friend started hosting themed speed dating events in New York City in hopes of attracting the types of people they wanted to date.
They firmly believed having standards is a good and necessary part of dating, and so they created specific themes to narrow the dating pool to desirable types of people.
