Speed dating new york reviews
I felt bewildered, not aroused — but judging from the expressions of the people around me, this mass apology seemed to be a turn-on.This was my introduction to flirting, tantra-style.In fact, I saw plenty of connections being made over the entire two hours — men and women gazing at each other, laughing, and thanking each other for the hugs and tenderness.At the end of the night, one man told the group it was the first event he’d attended in New York where no one complained.Another extremely attractive match and I had to sit on the ground facing each other and holding hands.He’d lean back and I’d have to hold him up, and vice versa — like a reverse trust fall.“That’s created an atmosphere where people are more thirsty for real connection, and I think that’s all mindfulness really is.” I arrived at the Institute’s August tantric speed dating event in yoga pants and a tank top (fitting, I assumed, given the setting) — but many of the other participants wore dating-formal attire.As I stared at the room full of women in dresses and men in slacks, I realized this wasn’t going to be the group-meditation session I was expecting.
Our events have become the most successful and talked-about speed dating and singles parties in town!
Participants were encouraged to place jewelry or clothing on the quilt to absorb “energy” from the event.
The women were given bags of beads to wear around our necks, while the men were given empty pouches to wear.
Guy explained that, if we were interested in one of the men, we should place a bead into their pouch at the end of each encounter.
Once we got started, 34 participants — 17 men and 17 women, ranging from those in their early 20s to literal grandparents — formed a traditional circle and moved counterclockwise through potential matches with improv exercises, communication games, and moments of tantric connection, a PG version of the “oneness” often associated with tantric sex.
