The room where the event was being held, was arranged with rows of small tables at which the Antelopes would sit, in front of which were stools for the prospective Lions, who would have a maximum of three minutes with each Antelope.
Once a buzzer sounded the Lions needed to move to the next table. At the end of the event, each party is given a formula where they can tick the number of the Lion or Antelope that they would like to see again.

This is your reminder to not miss this fun event...
So when it was time for a break in speed dating, the participants were led into another room where the much anticipated buffet was available.
This consisted of Bitterballen, Frikandel and Filet American.
The shallow man, having grown up on a steady diet of English comedy, can remember when a common innuendo used by comedians was to make jokes about men who couldn’t last longer than three minutes during copulation.
After sitting through twenty dates, Lieke could only come to the conclusion that the gentlemen in question had gotten together prior to the event, and as in the Wolf of Wall Street, had developed a script, which they all followed to the letter.
Time and time again she had to listen to what sounded like the reading of a CV.
The shallow man though tempted at the prospect of having a herd of clearly available Antelope to pursue, has never been a three minute man, therefore excluded himself from attending such events.
For that reason I’m grateful to Lieke for sharing her story, which will almost certainly entertain some and annoy the hell out of others.
