PechaKucha Cape Town.
I am going to be presenting at one of the PechaKucha nights, and have decided to create a dating challenge where I will go on 20 blind dates in 20 hours. Maybe its because its the Month of Amore, or because I think blind dates are interesting ways of meeting people, but this is the topic I'll be talking on.
These 20 dates will then form the basis for my presentation. The aim is not simply to report back on each date, but rather to look at the journey of a monumental dating challenge and what happens over the course of the day. I will, however, need to take some photographs to document the dates, although if the girl feels self-conscious we can always black out her face in the photo later. I won't be using the girls' names but using pseudonyms like 'Blonde Girl' etc.
In order for the challenge to work I need 20 girls to agree to go on a blind date with me on one day. The dates will each last 30 minutes with a 15 minute break between dates, and will be happening on Saturday 23 February at the V&A Waterfront. The day will start at 7h00 in the morning and end at 21h00.
This might sound crazy and it probably is a bit, but I think its going to be a lot of fun. It's not going to be too serious and I will of course be the ol' gallant gentleman. It's really just about a friendly blind date situation with no pressure. And if you don't know me at all and you're like "how old is this MJ guy, cause I don't want my friend or myself to go out with an old man or young kid?" then the answer to that question will be 24.
