Remember that speed dating is all about appearances, so make sure that you take the time to look at their clothing: how it looks, how it smells, (yes I know) and even how it is all put together. If a guy doesn’t take care of himself, it’ll show in his clothing. You’ll know to steer away from people like that.

If a guy is acting strange and shady during the few minute long conversation, make sure you steer clear of him. Speed dating comes with quite a lot of awkward moments, but there is awkward and then there is just scary. If a guy is staring at you or openly checking you out, it’s safe to assume that this is a terrifying person that you want nothing to do with at all. When you’re looking at speed dating, it’s better to be safe than sorry, you can’t go go wrong with trusting your instincts. It’s definitely the best idea for sure.

It’s understood that speed dating is either “love it or hate it”, so most of them won’t mind you asking those strange questions about drinking or other habits that may seem strange to bring up out of midair.

If you have any reason to doubt him or his answer, it’s safe to know that you can simply walk away.
- Be careful
This is the number one rule, because there are a lot of creeps out there in the world. If something doesn’t feel right, get out of there. You have to protect yourself from those scary people out there who only mean you harm. It’s definitely underrated, but needs to be said for sure.
