The very nature of speed dating can create stress -- you have to convince people to like you in 10 minutes or less. To eliminate that stress, you have to approach speed dating with the right mindset. Don't think of it as "your only chance" or a "single opportunity." View the speed dating event as something fun -- an absurd yet efficient way to meet new people, and possibly meet that very special someone. If you can laugh at the idea of speed dating, you can take the pressure off of you. Then you can enjoy the experience, and hopefully work your way successfully through all of your dates.
