32 Girls. 32 Boys. 32 First Dates. ZYNG organized its 5th Speed Dating event, ‘30 First Dates’ at the Royal Yacht Club of Mumbai on 17th July. 64 people attended the event, interacting with each other, discovering their common and maybe not-so-common interests. Porous Dubash started the eve with a few fun ice-breaker games. This was followed by the ‘one-to-one session’, where every participant got to spend three minutes with a new person, giving them the opportunity to mark out or show a preference for fellow participants that they would like to get to know better. ZYNG will share the contact details of participants sharing a mutual preference for each other, thereby facilitating the opportunity to take the acquaintance further. The evening ended with dancing and dinner.
ZYNG also held an online contest asking members to share their most hilarious/embarrassing dating experiences! The winning entry by Feroza Bharucha, who won a meal for two at Trattoria (Vivanta by Taj President), reads:
My first (matrimonial) date
Came an hour late,
Dogs he did hate
Was interested only in his food plate
Need I mention, further meetings I had to terminate
& l hopefully wait for the right mate…
17th July @ ZYNG SPEED DATE!
