Once a bell or other cue is presented, the men in the group sit at different tables for a 5 to 8 minute conversation with each lady participant.*** In the game of dating, speed dating and set up dates have been taboo for the longest time. I remember recovering from my first break up by plunging myself straight into the dating world and getting myself unwanted attention – having my good guy friend professing his feelings for me was a case of #sorrynotsorry, but I was not interested at all.

Care Corner Singapore's Daniel Ong (in white) with Nike representatives Raena Cheong and Jordan Hanauer.Michelle Goh from Complete Me dating agency says that a good look for guys is a tailored shirt or smart polo tee.For the ladies, keep it casual but feminine in a nice top and dark jeans.The idea behind this form of dating, is quite simply “speed”.The dates are structured to allow you to meet as many people as possible, in person, within a specific session.Apps like Tinder and sites like OK Cupid are supposed to make dating a little more convenient and a little less confrontational—you take a look at profiles and then judge them based on a couple of photos and some background info before even meeting them, swiping left or right (which really does take out the magic of dating).

But if you're single this year and want to kick it old school, head over to Hush, Singapore's first silent teabar, happening at Asian fusion restaurant Epiphyte Singapore on Feb 13.

You'll get to take in the peaceful ambience as you soak in your own thoughts.

Later, you'll be paired with another participant at the session, whom you'll get to know of more after both of you have sat in silence (and perhaps pick up some a couple of phrases in sign language), because according to them, "..[this person] understands your silence, [this person] will understand your words." Throughout the session, you'll get to try five of the 12 different types of original tea selection blended in-house and an exclusive Valentine's Day dessert from the restaurant (all we know at this point is that it's a flowery cake).

Participants who sign up are invited to single venue.

The Meet Up Tables are usually set up where the women of the group will sit.

Never mind if you’ll become a crazy cat lady in ten years, you can worry about that tomorrow.
