Dating is complicated for any generation, but millennials must contend with the double-edged sword of technology.According to a Singles in America study from Match.com, 22 percent of millennials are more likely to feel that tech has made finding love harder.In the interest of giving all the left- and right-swiping a rest, we sent Adam Lukach, Red Eye reporter, and Sadé Carpenter, Red Eye deputy editor, on a speed dating mission. Dating background Adam: After a yearslong relationship recently ended, I have returned to dating in earnest for the first time since 2013. In just the last few years, the different digital avenues available for dating have changed dramatically, and every option comes with its own learning curve.Plus, I’m not the bargoer at 28 that I was at 23, which diminishes a regular meeting spot.In any case, my results from Bumble, Tinder and Coffee Meets Bagel have been mixed, at best.
I’ve tried the apps but, like Adam, have gotten mixed results. On one hand, I’d love the companionship or even a very consistent friend with benefits, but I’m also content in my singledom.I’m used to it, despite the societal pressure that comes with being unmarried and childless at 32.Like Jamila Woods sang, “I’m not lonely, I’m alone.And I’m holy by my own.”Pre-event Sadé: I’ve always wanted to try speed dating, which seemed perfect for a Valentine’s Day story.We found My Cheeky Date on Eventbrite, and I was intrigued by the description.
It’s billed as a “low key, sophisticated approach to dating in Chicago.” The booking process was super easy — we bought our tickets, received a confirmation email and waited.
