Do women really have the power in speed dating? Our expert reveals why and just what each gender is looking for within those few minutes.

During a heartwarming and sincere speech at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Jodie Foster proudly announced she is single. Using her wit and charm, she coyly set up the speech to make it appear as if she was inferring to her sexuality. If being single makes you feel like you are in the minority or are part of an unaccepted group - think otherwise! You are part of a very large majority that is welcomed, embraced and accepted. Being single does not require you to use a separate entrance, sit on the back of the bus or file special citizenship papers.

If you are like me, you probably keep a pretty tight schedule. Work, family, friends and dealing with life’s little crises can occupy a lot of your time.

“Why does dating have to be so hard?” That is the question that most of my clients always seem to ask during our initial consultation process. Nobody really teaches us how to date. Most of us learn by years of trial and error, some of us learn by observing and others are still in the process of trying to figure out what works for them.

Even if you have limited time to spare, speed dating only requires an investment of two hours and it allows the opportunity to meet and connect with 20 plus singles who have all come to the event with the purpose of getting to know you. The more people you meet, the more of an opportunity you will have to socialize, practice your dating skills and possibly connect with someone who is a perfect match for you.

The first big problem with the term to "be yourself" is that it is so over used. Successive generations have given out this standard piece of advice to perplexed daters who have no idea what it means.
Awww, suburbia! Garages, yards, good public schools, sidewalks you can walk on, and when it comes to some places—like my home town in North Jersey--seven major shopping malls in a twenty-five mile radius! Parents and grandparents asking young people when they are going to get married? All the time! A singles scene that inspires you to get out of your sweatpants? Not so much!
Promiscuous dudes and down-to-earth girls may have the edge when it comes to dating. Well, at least in terms of speed dating.
