And this article is pretty much my reflection on how a small step or rather a few mouse clicks can change your life. Anyway, I digress: if you have about 5 minutes to spare, look through what I have to say and judge for yourself!
All I have to say is: speed dating changed my life. The Chance Encounter So it was one of those days: I was staring blankly at my desktop at work, crunching numbers, preparing for my next business presentation. Grzzz… Grzzz… I received a notification on WhatsApp!
Was someone going to ask me out to dinner? Image Credit: giphy. I just never got out very much. College was by far the last chance I had at meeting someone, but I blew it, because a good degree would get me further in life than any partner would — so said society. OMG did I get a match? The Epiphany Fast forward 2 hours later, and it was 8pm. Time to go home. In the cab, I instinctively took out my phone again to see if anyone liked me — nope no luck at all. You just meet people!
Without having to ask them out in the first place! Idea, right? Immediately, I signed up, paid, and got the details from GaiGai.
This was the second time I had it on; I was dressed to kill or so I thought , but at the same time 20 minutes early, pacing the toilet and breaking into perspiration because Singapore is just too damn humid.

Rishma listened well, and after my session, she gave me a couple of things to work on. Her biggest advice to me that day was that I needed to love myself more.
To change that, she told me to first be less critical of myself. One practical tip she gave was to ask myself what I did right in a bad situation, instead of beating myself up over what went wrong.
Secondly, I needed to be more open to receiving love from other people. She told me to try giving out more hugs because I get uncomfortable when people show me affection , and say thanks to compliments instead of dismissing them. But during times when I remember to do all of these things — especially when it comes to greeting people with a hug instead of just waving awkwardly at them — I found that people warmed up to me a lot more easily.
According to Rishma, he loves to travel, is very close to his family, and is a very smart guy. But John was quite a good conversationalist, and to give Rishma credit as a matchmaker, our personalities matched and we do share a lot of similar views. So we wound up at a dive bar along Boat Quay, doing shots by the bar. In hindsight, we should have went for some food instead, but I was impulsive and he was laid-back enough to come along for the ride. The rest of the night became an unintentional party.
